After 2 weeks of search and being dissapointed I finally nailed this one down. Paid $14.24 fter tax at Blue Max today.

Off the pour a 2 inch dense white frothy head forms, slow to recede. Leaving a whipped topping consistency head, super generous cap. Solid coats of lace line the glass.
Color is a brilliant pale copper, transparent.
Aroma is more then better of what I expected. Pungent dank hops, citrus, floral leafy sweet candied hops. caramel malt tones. Refreshing, inviting aroma.
Flavors are sweet and malt filled at first with mild bready caramel, transition into bittering hops. Bitters take over into the finish lingering with pine, rind and hempy hop oils.
Distant aspirin and leafy mint.
Mouthfeel is crisp and mildly slick.

This is a fantastic AIPA from Summit. If the beer was placed infront of me on a blind tasting I would never had expected it was from Summit. Kudos to you on 25 years!

12oz bottle into Summit Oatmeal Stout glass (review from notes 11/11)

Look is like most IPA's: a slightly red hued orange-gold. Smell is fruity, piney hops with a warm malt background. Taste is great, this is their best IPA yet: bitter piney hops dominate with a semi-sweet caramel malt background. Feel is well carbonated, medium, and crispy.

Good representation of the style. Does nothing new but does it well.
