Brought a growler of the Sum Nug IPA home to share with some friends. The appearance was a darker amber and had a creamy white head. The smell consisted of pine, some citrus, and malt. The taste was certainly bitter, I dont think the malt carried its weight against the summit and nugget hops that were used. As the beer warmed it turned somewhat sour. The mouthfeel was knowck down a little bit for me. Certainly 1 to 2 would be fine for me at a sitting.

Served in a pint glass at Shoreline 1/7/08. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

A: This one was served up a nice looking hazy amber color with no head and a tiny ring. Very still.

S: HOPS! Very piney hop aroma with an assertive toasted malt backbone.

T: See above. Once again, piney HOPS and excellent balance from the malt.

M: Dry, resinous, astringent, and deliciously piney.

D: Very good. Could session this bad boy!

Had on tap at the brewery.

A- Pours a light hazed orange/light amber color. Two finger white head shows medium retention. Nice sheet lacing on the glass as I drank this one down. Shoreline is always good with the lacing.

S- This is simple a light caramel malt backbone that is mostly hidden due to pine pine pine hops everywhere!

T- Nice bitter grassy hops in the front. I expected this with the aroma. There is a light malt balance to this which I didn't expect to be honest. This beer is plain and simple in the taste.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good with the style. Piney hops left everywhere in the mouth after each sip. Tons of resin and makes you feel it on your teeth. Aftertaste is light alcohol with a lot more piney hop. Medium drying on the palate. Flavor was a little one sided at times but when the malts worked their magic they do so and balance the flavor well.

D- A damn good drinkable beer that I personally loved having glass after glass of. Shoreline should be up there with the top of the top with Indiana brewers.

Drank this at the New Albanian/Richo's Lupulin Land Festival. A 20 oz. pour arrived with a bright orange/amber body. The head was off white and left sheets of fine lace down the glass.

Smell was robust. Sweet and cat piss. Yummy hops earthiness.

Taste was spicy, grassy, and brash. However, the sweet maltiness was adequate the counter the bitterness. Summit and Nugget hops give it the "Sum-Nug" name. The two characteristics were distinct but worked well together.

Mouthfeel was medium to full and adequately carbonated. I would seek this one out again.
