Craft beer lovers in Michigan are spoiled. Michigan has the official beer city U.S.A. along with some of the greatest breweries in the nation(Founders, Bells). While working in Minnesota I have come to realize that there is a whole world of craft beer out there that I don't regularly have a chance to enjoy. Just last night I had a chance to enjoy a couple different Minnesota craft beers. At the restaurant closest to my hotel, Norman Quack's, I enjoyed a Northwest Passage IPA by Flat Earth Brewing Company. It was an excellent American IPA.
Tonight I am enjoying a can of Double IPA by Summit Brewing Co. and more specifically Eric Harper from Summit Brewing Co. This beer is part of their Unchained Series. Summit Brewing Co. is a St. Paul based brewery. These beers were sold to me in a 4-pack of cans. So I have three more beers to enjoy before having to reload the mini fridge.
Look: N/A (in a can)
Since this beer was presented in a can, I am unable to give an opinion on the look of the beer. The beer gives off a sweet hoppy aroma. The beer is very hoppy forward. The Double IPA comes in extra hoppy. A wonderful beer with a sweet hoppy taste, I think there is a bit of grapefruit coming through my flavor palate. The finish is one of balanced carbonation and medium body. This beer is a very solid IPA. I tend to enjoy the IPAs, as a self proclaimed Hop Head, this really touches my sweet spot and makes my insides happy. Summit Brewing has a new fan, I hope to find more by Summit before leaving Minnesota.
