Originally served having me think it was "Summit IPA" at The Nook in St. Paul, I tasted it and thought it tasted a lot more like a pale ale than an IPA... it turns out it was this beer. I had a pint and a half or so from a pitcher, so I got a good taste for it.
The color of the beer alone has it known (presumably) that it'll be a malty beer... and it is. The color is basically beer bottle brown with maybe a slight haze. There's a pretty awesome amount of lacing down the glass. The smell and taste is pretty unique. Not sure of the hops or malts they use in this one, but seeing it labelled an English Pale Ale makes sense to me. Caramel and maybe some munich malts with herbal hops and a kind of citrus rind bitterness that's not too heavy makes for a solid, flavorful, easy-drinking beer. I was disappointed at first thinking it was an IPA (since I was told it was), but this is pretty tasty for the style. Quite nicely done.
