it has a nice bite to it, and I've heard people say it has an onion taste, I don't get any of that...just citrus, just grabbed another cheeky bottle as it's good, thinking I might brew this again soon as I can't see it lasting long !
brewed a Chinook/Cascade ipa today and chose summit over nugget for bittering... i'm liking it a lot

Gives quite an honest description

I'm very happy with my summit and cascade pale - far too easy to reach for a 2nd...

well, just brewed a second batch as it's going down well. I do pick up the orange citrus from this hop and I'm liking it a lot, so I added some clementine peel to this boil to help lift that flavour a little more, going to be a regular brew for me this one !

I think it works really well with cascade and will brew my simple IPA brew with these two as a combo again.

Got single hop cascade and summit brews planned to see what they bring individually to the party (and give 80 hoppy beers to drink over the summer )

I have also just bottled a brew using Summit.
I did not like the taste of it,so I added a Fuggles dry hop, and now I don't mind it
