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.

This is an above-average tasting beer with nice color, taste, and feel. It is a nice IPA but it is nothing over the top or to turn into your go-to beer and I prefer other IPAs over this one. Still, this beer shows the diversity that Summit offers.

On tap at an Applebee's in Grand Forks, ND. Pours clear golden with a thick bone white head with great retention and lace. Taste is lightly bitter with faint candy sweetness. Flavors of citrus, melon, pepper. Aroma is faint, but I get citrus peel, faint grain. Smooth and easy drinking. Tasty.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and a half. Lacing forms nicely speckled with bubbles inside of it. Light carbonation was seen rising. The smell had a sweet citrus with a light honey over top of a sticky piney hops. The taste was mainly sweet through the combination of sweet citrus and piney hops to sweet malts. A light sweet sticky piney - ness leads to a sticky sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with an easy carbonation rolling over my tongue. A slight sharpness is there but becomes quite settling. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA for what it is.
