Very Good
Notes: The newest member of our American IPA lineup. The Summit IPA is loaded from start to finish with Summit hops. This crispy refreshing IPA starts with a bit of tangerine and finishes ruby red grapefruit. It has just enough malt to help balance it without making it heavy or sweet. - See more at: http://www.nattygreenes.com/beer/tap/37

@ Raleigh location (not sure which beers are brewed at where, but this matches the specs)

Bright and clear orange-amber with a sticky, creamy looking head that leaves some decent lace behind. Stinky, oily citrus hop aroma with a slight herbal bite. Big grapefruit, tangerine juice, and other miscellaneous juicy/pulpy/rindy citrus. Medium bodied and nicely crisp. Really good stuff. Loads of hops flavor without the onion business that Summit can sometimes bring. You never know what you're going to get at Natty's, but I just ended up sticking with this for a couple rounds because it hit my hoppy spot just right.

One of the better Natty's beers I have had in a longtime here.Poured into a standard pint glass a lighter golden with a nicely formed half finger bone white head.A nice shot orange and tagerine like hops in the nose along with leafy undertones,a crisp lighty sweet maltiness is there as well.Not bitter on the palate at all just nice juicy fruitiness and a little "greeness",the malt base is not overly sweet and the alcohol is well hidden.I may go get a growler fill of this in the next few days,I really liked this alot.81 IBU's.

This one was a pleasant surprise. The aroma was heavy on the citrus, mostly tangerine with some grapefruit. The taste wasn't quite as juicy as the nose. The only slight detractor was a bit of a tart finish to go along with the expected bitterness.
Overall this is a really enjoyable IPA and is the best beer I've had from natty's in a while.
