COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re proud to announce the new Summit Sága IPA, a decidedly different hop-forward brew due out in early May 2012. The beer has pronounced hop flavors and aromas of kiwi, passionfruit, apricot and gooseberry. Clean, assertive bitterness with balancing Pale malt characteristics. We hop it with the rare New Zealand Rakau hop along with Citra, Centennial and Amarillo. Named after the Norse Goddess of Poetry, who was the God Odin’s drinking companion... also, it was quite a saga to pick a name!

PorterPounder (5363) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits (Betton) - 12 oz bottle. Slightly sparkling medium golden pour, slightly thinnish with sticky white head that leaves bubbly lacing. Aroma has some light spruce notes, a bit of mango-like fruitiness. Flavor is refreshing with some light bittersweet citrus notes, some spearmint accents, and a touch of green tea. Mouthfeel is more thin than thick. Better than expected.

tmoreau (2314) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2013
12 oz. bottle carefully poured to my 1/2 pint sampler so as not to rouse too much of the layer of sediment on the bottom. Still displayed a hazed, orange/golden hue, with good persistence to the off white, frothy, bubbles & cream head, and lasting cling to the tight rings & spots of lacing. The aroma was expressive grapefruit & orange, with touches of tropical fruit & pine. Medium+ bodied, the flavor added potent & very lingering, earthy, citrusy, & rind-like hop bitterness, light graininess, but good malt support. Maybe presented just a touch of malt sweetness, but was mainly crisp & dry, and finished the same, with the hop bitterness remaining on the palate well past the finale. A very hoppy and hearty IPA.

benfergy (198) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Appears as an orange/brown beer; the aroma has floral hops, and when I sip it has a great deal of malt, both barley and caramel. The taste is mostly balanced, and somewhat bitter. The palate isn’t very notable. Nonetheless, the Saga is a rather good beer; it’s interesting and complex.

Got this from Cub Liquor for first try. Tasted great with steak on the grill with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Will probably try again.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Slightly hazy honey color with 3/4" of stiff white head. Aroma is sweet and tropical with a mix of citrus and other fruits. Taste is the same, and the malt is clean, allowing the hop bitterness to punch through in the end. $2/12oz

superspak (2455) - Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 3/18/2013. Slight gusher upon opening. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, mango, pineapple, tangerine, floral, grass, caramel, bread, and slight pine. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of hop notes; with a nice amount of malt balance. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, pineapple, floral, grass, pine, bread, caramel, and light piney spiciness. Moderate amount of citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pineapple, floral, pine, grass, bread, caramel, and piney spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop notes; with a solid malt backbone; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. Great balance and complexity of hop notes; and very easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

PhillyCraft (3139) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 On tap at pour house, copper color with a good bit of carbonation and a medium to large off white head. Great lacing retention. Aromas of centennial and citra, lots of pine, and juicy citrus. Taste is about the same with some honey, and wood tones mixed with a bitter finish. Somewhat grainy but not over the top. Too much carb in this one. Pretty solid offering as far as ipas go.
