Poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Has a nice transluscent, lighter copper color . About a 1/2 in. head of which 1/4 in. settled quickly and the remaining 1/4 in. hung around. Has a noticeable, piney hop taste that is light on the fruits (nothing noticeable stand outs to me), with a hint of the alcohol coming onto the pallet on the back end. Its a good IPA in a crowded field, but will drink again. Cheers.

Poured from 12 oz can into tulip.

A: Pours a fairly clear golden yellow with 2-3 finger soapy white head that seemed to last forever, and some of which even floated on top for quite a while. A bit of sticky lacing.

S: A hint of citrus combined with resinous piney hops. Oranges and some grapefruit along with a little caramel.

T: Slightly bitter hops with some refreshing citrus. Started more as grapefruit, but an orange flavor developed as it warmed.

M: Medium body with some oily pine resin. Fairly well carbonated.

O: A solid IPA but not very complex. Refreshing, and one I would grab whenever it was convenient, but if wouldn't go out of my way to hunt it down.

A nice, balanced, easy drinking IPA. Good piney, light citrus with mild to moderate bitterness on the mid-palate and finish. Havent had many IPA from Summit before, but really like what they have done with this one. Priced at $13 for a 12 pack of bottles, a great value also!
