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.

12oz bottle into snifter. Thank you Mathew! Best by 6/19/14.

A: Pours a ruby amber color with a finger of soft, light tan head that faded into a fuzzy film.
S: Grapefruit and citrus hops, with hints of floral hops and spicy and bready rye notes.
T: Rye bread and spice mixes well with hoppy notes of grapefruit, doughy yeast, and flowers. The finish has a bitter touch alongside the rye spice, and the aftertaste is lightly sweet and fruity.
M: Clean light mouthfeel, medium-light body, soft carbonation, slick.
O: A very flavorful and delicious rye beer. Tastes like a rye pale ale or ipa. Very clean and delicious, but not overbearing. Could easily drink a bunch of these in a night. Thanks again Matthew!

Pours a brownish copper with a finger of head that dissipates fairly quickly but leaves a touch of lace on the glass. The nose has mild rye notes, but I also swear that I get a hint of nuttiness as well. The body is a touch lighter than I expected, but it is still in the appropriate range for the style. The rye notes are evident and the finish has a nice semi-dry bitterness to it.

This would make for a solid session ale, but I think that a fall release would be more appropriate than a winter release.
