Summit Hopvale Organic Ale

This 4.7% ABV ale is from the Summit Brewing Company of St. Paul, Minnesota. It is brewed with all organic ingredients including lemon peel.

The beer pours a hazy golden and apricot in color. There is a tall, raggedly foamy head of white to off white foam that leaves very sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma is fruity hops, lush and ripe melons, orange, citrus, with just a hint of dankness. The taste follows the aromas, putting the fruits over toasted malt. The beer finishes dry with a moderate bitterness.  It drinks incredibly smooth. This is one nice ale.
