Appearance - Amber color. A strong pour yielded a 1 finger head. The glass had nice lacing down the wall while drinking.

Smell - Hops and Malt. not getting much on the nose

Taste - The taste is rather two dimensional. Hops, Malt and a bit of pine taste. The finish is quite bitter. Nothing too exciting going on here

Mouthfeel - Sticky mouthfeel. Coats the mouth. Good level of carbonation.

Overall - It's a decent Red but not something I would go out of my way to buy often.

A - Pours a nice amber color, two finger of off-white head, full wall of fine lacing.
S - Really nice toasted caramel malt aroma, with some nice light citrus and pine, definitely dank too. Love the aroma.
T - Taste is extremely balanced with a great base malt of caramel, and bread, some nice tart citrus mid way and in the aftertaste, middle you get that really nice lighter bitterness, crisp and dank hops, pine and a little resin.
M - Feel is somehow crisp and a little creamy.
O - Excellent hoppy red ale, incredible balance, tons of great flavor. You could have a few of these in a row as well. Behind Saga, its my favorite Summit brew.

Appearance is a dark copper with some orange on the edges. There is a finger of off-white head. There is both the essence of hops and grapefruit in the nose. Both the hoppiness and citrus flavors come through in the flavor profile. The malt taste in the flavor profile is a bit light, however. There is some decent bitterness on the finish for a standard red.

This is a very drinkable offering that is light enough for hot summer days, but not so light that it is thin.
