Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip pint glass.

A: Clear, light amber color with one finger of persistent apricot-tinted foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass, nearly continuous about one-third of the way down, and a few metered streams of bubbles rise in the column.

S: Clean overall, starring hops that are herbaceous and piney but with lesser floral qualities as well. A trace of austere pilsner grain is the only clearly non-hops quality detectable.

T: Begins dry, with moderate-intensity hop aromatics showing mostly floral and spicy herbaceous qualities. Pale malt is detectable but fairly neutral, like uncooked dough. Acidity is mild into the middle where herbaceous qualities become a bit medicinal but grain becomes more bready in a cooked way. The finish yields bold, heavy-handed bitterness whose astringency lingers on the palate.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, wet on the palate showing late astringency that matches the taste, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This appears to be an attempt by Summit to put a modern IPA on shelves, and it doesn't fall far from the 25th anniversary beer tree. Dry-hopping is modest at best, appearing to be largely of Cascade hops but with an allowance for Amarillo to stop by and drop off a pellet or two. At it's price point it isn't bad, although the lingering bitterness holds it back.
