Pours a dense, off-white head with great persistence. A HUGELY aromatic mix of floral hops and rye. Crystal clear burnt umber color. A deep, rich rye malt with bright, grapefruit hop bitterness cutting right through it - quite the start. Peaks into a grapefruit, yet floral hoppiness as the rye malt builds and comes back. The finish is lingering hop bitterness and spicy rye.
Jesus, this is awesome. It is PERFECTLY hoppy (a great balance of hop aroma, flavor, and balanced bitterness), and JUST aggressive enough with the rye to cut through the hops. Masterfully balanced; not too hoppy, not too malty. I highly recommend this.

Appearance: Clear brown, ok head.
Smell: Dark toast, rye, coffee, spice.
Taste: Rye bread, spicy, earthy, piney. Big rye flavor.
Overall: A new seasonal from Summit. Definitely whacks you over the head with rye flavor. Big rye bread all over the place. Fits in pretty well with the season, easing out of winter with a different kind of spiciness than the Winter Ale.

12 Oz bottle. Date on it. Poured into summit glass.
Deep ruby-copper color, small, uneven, airy head. Smell is pine and oak, and maybe plastic. Taste is bitter and resinius, earthly sweet but spiced. Lemony hops compliment the spicy rye and char.
Very bitter, almost to its detriment.

Pours a deep but transparent brown. Plenty of lacing.
Aroma of grainy rye. Then citrus. Pleasant but very subtle.
Tastes of earthy grains followed by citrus notes. Taste and nose are very similar.
Crisp, dry mouthfeel.
Assuming this is a spring seasonal and it is fitting.
