Cheers,

While playing around with an IPA recipe, I stumbled upon Summit Hops.

Brewers Supply Group :: Hops :: Summit Hop Analysis

Anyone have any experience with these? They're described as citrus/grapefruity, which will go well with the cascades I plan on using. Recipe as follows:

8lbs DME
1lb 20L Caramel Grain
1oz Summit (18.5%) 60
1oz Summit (18.5%) 20
1oz Cascade (5.5%) Flameout
1oz Cascade (5.5%) Dry.

Any thoughts or comments would be much appreciated.

cheers,
-bottleopener

I love summit, They are like Super Centennials/Cascades Very Citrusy. The ones I had were about 15% AA.

They are citrusy, but more like a tangerine, not a grapefruit. I use them for the bittering charge in my apas and ipas. They are good for flavor and aroma too. I don't really like them alone, but they blend well with centennial and cascade!

+1 on tangerine. Very high alpha(15-19%) making them an economical hop. Only one grower/supplier at this time due to patent rights. Sometimes hard to come by late in the season. Makes a great IPA when combined with Cascade and Amarillo. One of my favorites.

Haven't used them myself, but at the last OBC meeting Rob Widmer had two cases of a seasonal that used Summit for flavor. Very nice, citrus, but not at all like Cascade.
