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!

Bright copper color, 1/2 inch frothy head which dissipates quickly. Smells very tropical with citrus backbone. A slight bit of piney flavor as well. Flavor is nicely bitter, floral, with citrus notes and a long finish. Overall, a very solid IPA. Textbook IPA. Nothing incredibly insane going on here, just a very, very good and balanced IPA.

I know how much folks like this beer, but I don’t get it. After the first few sips I am ready to give this to anyone else who rated it so high. Smells great from the bottle, but the taste is too much--lots of sweet and bitter flavors jump out together and take over the picnic, which I was enjoying.

Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Draft at the International Tap House. Textbook American APA. Right down the middle visuals, golden and shiny, big poofy head. This is citrus all the way. Nice light and drinkable offering, but fully flavored. Love it. (#5232, 8/29/2013)

Bottle, courtesy of Wellestone. At St. Paul Saints Midway Stadium parking lot. Hops in the nose. Amber body and huge white foamy head. Drinking this out of a semi-transparent plastic cup. The first time I had this I thought it was in discernible from the EPA, but its clearly different, and vastly superior.
