4.13/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours a very deep amber, not very clear but not to hazy either, kind of right in between, half finger of tan head, ridiculously good lacing

Smell is sweet fruit, orange and pineapple come to mind first, lemon, fresh cut grass, caramel, toffee

Taste is lemon, herbal, spicy, caramel, toffee, a little grapefruit, almost a black pepper type flavor, nice pine bitterness

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side which I expected at under 6%, pretty hefty carbonation, dry and somewhat chalky after

Probably the best "Red IPA" I have had, for sure more IPA then red here. But the malt does bring a nice toffee and spice note not found in IPAs.

If you like malty reds you may want to avoid, if your a hop fan this is a really nice beer.

3.86/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

I tasted this head-to-head with Abita Spring IPA ( a bright flowery buttery beer).
This one is more subtle and has a deeply satisfying flavor profile.
A:Bottle > Tulip Glass
Clear, surprisingly deep red body with one finger of foamy off white head, and medium lasting and lacing.
S - Aroma is coy, grows as it warms, pine, grass, hay, earth, orange, lemon, caramel malt.
T - Follows smell with more power. Resiny pine, then juicy citrus flavors, finishes malty.
M - Minerally. I think it's solid base water, and good, clean, long finish. Good food beer.
O - Got in WFM craft pack. this convinces me to drink more of Summit.
I love red beers, this one is a must try.
