12oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint.
A - Another beautiful looking beer from Summit. Rocky white head is large. The beer is a shade darker than what I call golden and has perfect clarity. Left a bit of lacing to my glass.
S - Earthy/spicy hop tones are bright and foremost. I get a graininess in there also.
T - Here, malt shows up first but for a short while. Grainy base malt is early with a perceivable biscuity tone to it. Hops have a great bright flavor to them, I'm getting earthiness and a prickly pine tone as well. That flavor transitions nicely into a great backbone of bitterness. Finishes dry with spicy hoppiness that lasts for awhile into the aftertaste.
M - Medium bodied, medium to medium-high carbonation, dry.
O - Summit has a magic touch with their beers appearance. Smell-wise I was a little disappointed in that the hops never really popped, but this beer still shows a great hop profile. Overall a good beer but not my favorite EIPA I have tried.

---from bottle to pint glass---
Foggy golden/honey, two fingers of beautiful sticky off white head, great lacing.
Soft hoppy notes, slight malt sweetness, nothing stands out.
Earthy bitter hops, hint of tart fruit, caramel backbone.
Good carbonation, good bitter, light body.
Summit loves their pale malts… and so do I. Not as hoppy as most IPA’s – however, this is not one of many popular American IPA… This is an English IPA. Still, this will not be a go-to beer for me. I’d call it a light IPA.
