3.91/5  rDev +4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a dark copper color, finger of off white head, nice lacing

Smell is big on the spicy bread, caramel, biscuit, herbal hop, some pine, toffee

Taste is a dose of piney and herbal hop upfront, spicy rye, bread, biscuit, caramel, toffee, a bit of fig, spruce

Mouthfeel is medium light, adequate carbonation, slight drying in the finish

Decent enough beer, though I am glad I got a single as I do not think I would drink this one all the time.

If you like Rye beers I certainly recommend this one!

3.71/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is crystal clear yellowish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some acing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready and rye malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and mimics the flavors of rye bread, except that it doesn't seem quite as filling as if you were eating a slice of bread. A light amount of spiciness and bitterness lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The rye lends a little bite to the finish.
O: This beer doesn't seem nearly as spicy as other rye beers but there is a nice contrast between the different type of malts that are used. It is very easy to drink.

3.78/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Traces of bottling date info on the neck but not enough to establish when this was sealed. Bought as part of a mixed sixpack at Liquor Outlet Wine Cellars in Boonton New Jersey on my trip south last week.

a: Clear copper/ruby with a finger thick offwhite head which receded to thin surface foam and fairly dense lacing.

s: Alcohol and mild caramel malt.

t: Moderate peppery spice up front over a medium caramel malt base. Dry finish.

m: Medium with good body.

o: A good spicy rye, pleasant throughout.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Ruby red with 1.5 fingers of soapy off white head, thick lacing.
S - Big roasted malts, a little nuttiness, some cherry or orange underneath, rye and pepper spice, even a hint smokey, very nice aroma.
T - Rye is very balanced in the flavor, a nice medium bite the whole way through, good malt backbone on this too, slightly roasted in flavor compared to the aroma, a little cinnamon and black pepper, mixed nuts, slight grapefruit peel.
M - A little spicy and chewy, but very drinkable.
O - Excellent Rye, which should be no surprise, summit does an excellent job on style representation through their whole line. This beer is not an exception, great aroma, very balanced in flavor.
