Now I remember why I don't miss Summit's old IPA all that much (but keep the Saga coming...). This is made well enough, toasty, biscuity malts and nicely balanced, but other than that, it is pretty unexceptional. The hops (some faint citrus and mellow earthy spicy notes) aren't very interesting and it has none of the great round complex flavors of good IPAs in the English style. It is okay, but somehow their EPA is a significant step up from this, in my book.

True Brit IPA pours a cooper color with a very small lacing head. There is no aroma. The taste is dry, has a mild maltyness, with a small earthy hop flavor. Nice flavors, nice body. Overall it is a nice beer, pretty tasty, not crazy.
