No freshness dating on the bottle but I think this is a pre-release bottle.

A= Pours a beautiful golden yellow color with a finger of head on it thats a nice white color and despite the "loose" look to it it holds some solid retention and lacing on the glass.

S= The smell is of nice lemon zest and a bit of a flowery summer smell. Little sweet malt character and a small amount of hop spice to it. Really just smells like summer.

T= A totally summer taste to it. Excellent lemon zest and a slight hop spice to it that gives it a little extra brightness. This my friend is summer in a glass.

M= Nicely carbonated with a good amount of carbonation and zest.

O= This is a home run from Summit. A well made "summer" beer. I don't care the style or the flavor this is an all around awesome summer beer. I'll be drinking a ton of this over the summer and enjoying every last drop. Seek this beer out and enjoy the hell out of it. I know I will be.
