Summit

Brewery: Allgates

A 4.5% beer brewed in Wigan, Lancashire. by Allgates. Summit brew active: 01/03/2011.

An exciting new beer for us in our single hop series, featuring 'Summit' hops from the USA, a recently-released high-alpha (17 to 19% AAU) variety. It is a dwarf variety grown on a low trellis system and as such is not machine harvestable, so these hops are gently picked by hand and are thus less damaged by the harvesting process. Strong orange, tangerine and grapefruit citrus notes and insistent flavours come to the fore making it ideal for brewing American style IPA’s and Pale Ales.
