3.8/5  rDev +8%

12 oz. bottle poured into a shaker pint. EB date of October 10, 2014. Medium gold/light amber body with a very retentive frothy off-white head. After about 5 minutes, the head finally settles into a single finger, leaving thick and chunky strings of lacing.

Aroma is very well-balanced. Caramel and subtle crackers in the malts combine with a floral, spicy, and slightly woody hoppiness. Slightly toasted. Very subtle frutiness, though I can't tell if that's esters or hops.

Flavor is similar to the aroma. Assertive hop bitterness with a caramel and bready malt backbone. More hop-forward than the aroma suggested. Decent amount of earthy/floral and particularly grassy hops, which is definitely a product of the dry-hopping. Clean, dry, and just slightly bitter finish.

Medium body and moderate carbonation. Dry, clean mouthfeel.

Overall, this is much better than Summit's old "IPA." The hoppiness is definitely assertive and it's overall fairly well-balanced for an English IPA. Caramel and 2-Row lend to a relatively boring malt profile, however, with none of the distinctive English toffee and biscuity aromas typical of the style. Still good, but one of Summit's weaker offerings.

4.05/5  rDev +15.1%

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall Summit pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About two fingers of off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing.

Smell: An earthy and toasty balanced English style aroma with a nice mix of spicy hops and malt. Earthy and floral hops with hints of grass, pine, and spice. Light citrus hints of lemon and orange. Toasted malt with bready hints of biscuit, caramel, cracker, and yeast. A pretty solid balanced aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a well balanced mix of earthy and floral hops with sweet caramel malt. Floral and earthy hops with some notes of grass and pine along with a little spice. Subtle citrus hop notes of lemon zest and orange. Bready toasted malt with notes of biscuit, sweet caramel, yeast, and cracker. A nice balanced English taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Nicely creamy and smooth with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A pretty solid take on an English style IPA. Good balance of spicy hops and sweet malt.
