India Pale Ale
Summit Brewing Company, Minnesota
---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.

Pours out dark orange with a tiny head that dissipates quickly. Smell is actually pretty malty with caramel and toffee. Ironically no hops in the nose that I sense. Well very faint and almost malt forward. Taste is pretty malty with what I found in the nose. Ironically there is VERY little bitterness or any hop flavor. This beer really doesn't make sense as far as the malt and hop bill are concerned. Not one to buy much Summit but surprised that it is SO malty with little bitterness. Mouthfeel is about right and a little thick. Overall this is a pretty bad IPA. It's way too malty and just let's you down on the hop bill. Is this supposed to be something else? Summit bites on this one and I'm a homer.

Summit IPA is .well.. different as far as IPA's go. It smells mild.. not a lot of hoppieness..it is refreshing but is not in the same League as Top Notch IPA's. Not even close to Stone IPA... One of my favourites. I like it ok.. but it's just not an IPA I would spend money on...
