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!

Appearance: Coppery gold under a pithy off-white head which slowly settles into a thick layer while lace crawls up the sides of my glass. Lovely.
Nose: Grapefruit and key lime front and center followed by freshly grated spice in the middle while dew-dropped grass skirts the edges. Sticky hop resins in the back. Bright.
Palate: Not quite as intense but well balanced with clean brisk flavors that keep me smiling from first quaff to last. Medium weight. Lots of grapefruit and key lime rind and pith in the back of each swallow – parching and thirst inducing. Green grass. Juicy white grapefruit and lemon drops in the middle. Sticky along the edges and on my lips – hop resins.
Final Thoughts: Balanced, clean, refreshing, and sessionable tribute to the Saga hop variety from Summit Brewing out of Minnesota. I’d happily drink another.

Great beer and readily available. Nice bitterness from the hops in this beer. Almost smells lemony on the nose.

In airport bar at MSP. Always impressed by the selection of craft at MSP. Nice IPA. Lots of hop flavor, but not a lot of malt to balance. Would drink again in a bar, not likely to seek out in bottles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone by TheMattTucker

Nickls (1902) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Tap. Hazy rust orange with a fluffy two finger head. Lots of nice grapefruit hoppiness, slight caramel and grassiness in the aroma. Nice pop of grapefruit hops, fairly aggressive, mellows with some juicy melon. Medium to lighter body with spritzy carbonation.

hotstuff (4353) - Indiana, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Draft @ 800 Degrees Three Fires-Fort Wayne, IN. This beer poured a small white head that mostly diminished, very little carbonation, spotty amounts of lacing, and a transparent body with a yellow-gold hue. The Aroma is malty and citrus, tropical hops. The Taste is bitter, citrus, pine hops and malty. The Palate is smooth and this is a medium bodied IPA. All-in-all, this beer is very quaffable, the hops are upfront in the Aroma and the Taste as they should be for this beer style, and this beer is worth trying and a beer I recommend if one enjoys drinking hoppy beers.

Juicy orange citrus aroma. Dark gold white head sticky lacing. Taste is delicious citrus orange hoppy, juicy with enough bitterness to balance. Very east to drink and light on the palate.

Sammy (9145) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2013
Fresh bottle from Capone’s. A bold minty spicy peppery IPA that stands out as the aftertaste is still on my palate some time after consumption. Deep yellow with good retained head. Middling mouthfeel. Good drinkability. Invigorating aroma.
