Pours a translucent golden hue. Not much aroma. The flavor isn't full but there is some nice grapefruit character. Some stick bitterness on the finish. This is a nice west coast style IPA.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky amber color with a large white head. The aroma is full of hops, fruit, malt & yeast. Basically, a chemistry set of all things great in beer. The taste is full of hops and fruit. It has an interesting acidic aftertaste.

A great every day IPA. Steady, minerally, east coast, great food beer. Peach orchard, spring time, sea side. Upgraded my review (in cans!) Could be my every day IPA.

A: Pours a cloudy amber color with a meringue head that lasts and laces a little.

S: Noses gets better as it warms. Complex, ample. Pleasing blend of caramel malt and piney hops, dank, lots of grass and spring herbs.

Taste: The balanced malt and hop favor the piney, floral hops, more citrus jam mid palate on bright, light toast.

Mouthfeel: Medium w lots of carbonation, cleansing, juicy finish.

O: A little dank, a little soapy, but mostly juicy and spring like. Straightforward and an every day kind of IPA. Try 24.

Summit hops give off a "dank" smell, smell almost resembling the mosaic hop. Was expecting a bitter assault on the pallet but the taste was much more subdued. Super delicious and very drinkable. Bottled from somewhere in CT.

This was another good find while back home in MA. A nice American IPA that isn't overly hoppy to the point where it begins to taste like soap. It had great balance between malt, hop, and citrus. A great year-round beer that offers something for every season. Hope I start to find it around like I do Whale Tail.
