Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
This autumn ale is a showcase of the mighty Summit hop. Our friend Jason grows amazing Summits that combine pine, spice and captivating citrus aromas. A good dose of toasted malts provides warm, rich flavors to contrast the hops on the front palate. Cold fermentation gives a surprisingly crisp finish. We hope you enjoy this unique fall brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear light amber with a half inch white head that sticks around a while. Lacing moderate.

Aroma: Smells of floral hops, citrus, caramel, toffee and toast. Pretty nice nose.

Taste: Follows the nose. It's mild but complex. Pretty tasty.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat light for the style. Could possibly use more body, but it's not a big negative.

Overall: Tasty amber ale. It doesn't scream "fall" at me and could probably be an annual. I'd have another.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours a middle-amber with very little head.

S: Immediate earthy, wet autumn leaf smell. Best part of the beer in my opinion. I couldn't get enough

T: Mild immediate sweet taste followed by bitterness followed by the most awful aftertaste of old leaves, dirt. I imagine this is what gives the great smell but this taste comes around and bites you at the end. Very off-putting to me

M: Medium body with a large amount of carbonation

Overall I couldn't get past a 2.50 on this. I actually poured out the rest of the glass after my first few mouthfuls. I just couldn't get past the bitter earthy tobacco dead leaf taste at the end. I drink tons of beers and rarely ever pour them out. If you're into earthy beers - this is the one.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Nice rich amber color with two fingers of bubbly khaki head, nice lacing.
S - Grassy, earthy, toasted grain and nuts, light pine, caramel and biscuit, even a very faint trace of baking chocolate.
T - Very complex and inviting flavor, really nice grassy and earthy fresh hop flavor, nutty, toasted biscuit and bread malt, somewhat floral on the end.
M - Clean and smooth, very refreshing.
O - One of the more interesting beer's I've had lately, lots of nice complexity, definitely a good fall session beer, and I think it might be my favorite thing from Peak Organic.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a slightly hazy amber with a medium amount of off-white head. Just some surface film and a ring around the glass retains, but it leaves solid sheets of lacing.

S: Grainy and a bit sweet, with a light grassy hop note.

T: Mildly sweet leading into a somewhat hoppy finish; not overly bitter, but the hops are certainly present.

M: Medium to light body, medium to strong carbonation.

Overall, a perfectly good everyday/session beer, but probably not one I'd seek out again.

2.79/5  rDev -22.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Pours a true amber color with a finger of white head that sees some nice retention. .Also some good sticky lace retention. Good carbonation too.

The smell is the best thing about this beer. It brings a good whiff of fresh hops and smells much hoppier than most fall harvest type beers.

Tastes mostly like tobacco and dead leaves. Seriously, the tobacco lingers and is kind of off-putting. Later, as the beer settles, there's a mildly sweet caramel malt presence, all veiled in very thin, herbal, fresh hop profile. Still hoppier than most fall beers, but not nearly as much as the nose would lead you to believe. The whole beer just seems watered down.
