To me its a good hop to use in a blend with other citrus hops. Yes it can have a dank, cat pee, even slightly oniony component but thats similar to Simcoe which everybody raves about. A little of this in a blend with Centennial, Columbus, Amarillo and Citra, gives you nice complexity.

My batch tasted fine until the dry hop--then it was all sweaty armpit.

I used them in another batch only as the bittering charge figuring no character would make it into the finished beer. Right after fermentation it had that sweaty taste and I thought I had screwed up. After 6 weeks of lagering (it was an o'fest) the flavor was gone--thank God.

I don't believe all summit is evil-only the crop I had.

I would make a hop tea to see what to expect if I were to try a different crop.

I just got 2 pounds free from YakimaValleyHops.I sure hope I can use them at least for bittering.
I just bottled a ten gallon batch of Smash today and put a gallon into a secondary with half an ounce of the Summit.
I'll give it a couple of weeks and see what shakes out.

I just brewed an IPA in the spring where I dry hopped with Summit. No onion at all, just bangarang tangerine!!

How about this.... Why would one waste their precious time and effort updating their signature with what beer they have in queue, what beer they have fermenting and what beer they have kegging?

Same thing different strokes for different folks
Fair enough. As for the sig, I use it to keep track of all the beer I have in process. It's a tool for me to be more organized.

Different strokes...
