Summit Extra Pale Ale ....

My beer for tonight is Extra Pale Ale from Summit Brewing Company.  Twelve ounce bottle.  The Summit web site shows 5.2% ABV and 45 IBUs.

This beer poured with a very thick, creamy colored head.  The beer color is a golden honey.  Aroma has some spice, earthy, maybe mild pine.  The taste is malty, with some caramel and a bready quality.  There is an underlying sour bitter note - it is not overly strong or unpleasant, but it has some bite.  Medium bodied.  Slight bitter aftertaste.
