This might simply be the most balanced full flavored IPA I have tasted. It has a great coloring with a wonderful smell. The initial full flavored taste when you take you first drink it just wonderful. I really enjoy the finish as I really had the desire to have another drink. Well done Summit, you have made a real fan out of me.

Pretty good looking, deep amber, thin foamy head. Smells rather chemical, unfortunately: rubbery. It's got a pretty mild flavor beer-wise. By this I mean it doesn't taste like beer. The hops here are not balanced well. Overwhelming. What pleased me most about this beer was the surprise of a creamy mouthfeel.

Had on-tap at Denny's Cocktail Lounge in Bloomington, MN

A - Served up in a 20oz pint, crystal clear and golden yellow in color with an ever-present thin layer of suds on the surface. Good lacing with broken sheeting and spotting.

S - Fairly balanced aroma of malt and hop, with bread, caramel, citrus and some grassiness.

T - Follows the nose. Bready and lesser caramel malts before big grassy bitterness kicks in with a touch of citrus. Finishes with grass and faint caramel sweetness.

M- Medium bodied with a fair amount of tingly carbonation. Slick texture that goes down easy enough with a mostly dry finish.

O - Pretty average craft IPA. Drinkable but forgettable. Something you might order all night if its the only decent option on tap, much like my current situation.

a classic ipa in these parts now, something i have somehow missed until now. deep brassy color here, nice clarity, and a delicate looking inch of white foam, airy and tidy. the smell is awesome, fruity and piney hops alike, west coasty, oily and saturated and sticky and fresh to me, with a little more grain in the nose (and taste too) than is fashionable right now, but providing a little balance and a plenty sturdy base for it. the flavor is majorly hop driven, with juniper and spruce notes, canned pineapple, bitter orange, and some oily richness, well bitter but full of flavor too, not quite old school there, but just really classically built to me, familiar, very fresh too. medium bodied, getting heavier as i let it sit, a pinch of crystal malt in here doing that, but its not sweet in the least. faint metallics there at the end with the vegetal bitterness, but still with the fruitiness persisting through the swallow. tasty stuff, robust for these guys, and i can see why it is popular and well regarded as it is. nice ipa overall, some of the better hoppy stuff i have had from summit.

Poured from a 12oz can, with a "best by" date of 5/19/18, into a tulip glass. Pale gold in color, perfectly clear, with one inch of white head to quickly fades to a solid cap. Faint smells of pine, citrus peel, & sweet malt. Taste follows smell with some bubble gum on the swallow. Mouthfeel is thin but slightly sticky, coating the tongue, allowing the flavor to linger. Drying finish begs you to take another sip. Overall, a solid midwest IPA.

Pours a clear gold with a white head, lots of lacing and good retention. Tons of bubbles streaming up the glass. Smell is slightly floral, fruity, all in all mellow. Taste is lightly grassy with a decent malt backbone. Fairly one-note, bitter on the finish. Medium carbonation with a dry finish. No nonsense, refreshing, straightforward IPA.

One of my favorites for ice fishing. Great aroma. Hops knock you around, but in a good way. One of the best 12 pack of cans you can get.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into glass. Bottle notes, 'INGREDIENTS: WATER, BARLEYMALT, HOPS & YEAST',
Clear golden body with bubbles rising. Fluffy white head settles to complete cap, excellent coverage of lacing.
Subdued aroma of fruity hops and malt backbone.
Taste is more expressive than aroma, very well balanced between hops and malt. Moderately bitter.
Slightly sticky mouth feel, pleasant to drink.
A well balanced beer, professionally done, but certainly not over the top.
