Kentucky

4.15/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear deep golden apricot with a fairly solid one inch ivory head that dissipates in big bubbles, leaving spotty lacing.

Aroma is fairly catty, with lots of dank, resinous notes. Pine, bruised grapefruit, and floral hops add character to a touch of caramel malt backbone.

Flavor reveals a more citrusy character, with powerful grapefruit dominating. There's an underlying resin presence that emerges, with hints of pine carrying into a seriously bitter, peppery hop finish. Bready malt offers little respite. More tropical fruit tones of pineapple, lime, and mango surface as it warms.

Body is a touch on the light side, with moderately high carbonation and some light hop astringency.

Overall, a very hoppy offering from Summit that lives up to its style designation. Hits hop characters of bitterness, flavor and aroma well, and in a fairly complex manner.
