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.

Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 3/11/2013. Pours moderately cloudy reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, pine, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of caramel, orange zest, grapefruit, floral, pine, grass, biscuit, brown sugar, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, citrus, citrus zest, floral, pine, grass, biscuit, brown sugar, and floral earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; with a hop forward flavor balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, sticky, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice red ale. Good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
