Summit Silver Anniversary Ale

20111120-183525.jpg

Summit Brewing from St. Paul, MN is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. They came out with this beer in celebration of it. It is an IPA at 6.5%.

This beer pours a very clear light orange to a golden color. There is quite a large head response here that creates a foamy white head.

The aroma is hops! I could smell the hops from the moment I cracked the cap. Very nice. Lots of piney hops and resin, wet for sure.

The flavor is nice and hoppy at the beginning, with a flavor that reminds me of homebrewing during the boil. It finishes quite dry however, with a sharp bitterness from the hops. A nice IPA.
