On tap Ashland, Ky. Poured into a standard Pint glass.

A - light haze in a golden body with a bright orange hue. Nice off white head fades to a splotchy ring of lace leaving nice stick.

S - grapefruit hop whiffs followed by citrusy orange and fresh lemon. Biscuity bread like malt and yeast. Fresh grass and a floral back end.

T - bigger orange and lemon than the nose would suggest paired with an equal amount of grapefruit notes. Caramel and biscuit malt balance Summit's pale ale quite nicely. Finish has a floral character to it and a mild bitterness.

M - medium bodied with good texture. Easy to drink. Great for the warm months approaching.

O - very nice pale ale. Nothing spectacular but a great brew nonetheless. Shame we don't get bottles here in Ky. A bottle of this stuff would probably add a few overall points. For me anyway. Tasty pale ale.
