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!

A solid IPA. Nice piney aroma, flavour is a bit bitter, though lacks some lingering bitterness I would have liked. Not bad.

Pours a deep golden color with a near fluffy white head which hangs around for a bit. Aroma is floral hops. Taste is grapefruit with slight bitterness. Solid IPA, nothing over the top, very well balanced.

Maltser85 (321) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Beer poured from a 12 oz bottle into my 16oz Summit Saga pint glass. Beer pours a nice slightly less than copper color, with an agressive pour you can expect a nice, robust head. As you drink this beer, it leaves an excellent lacing on the glass. Right out of the fridge the nose is a little mild, but as it warms the citrus and tropical smells from the citra and amarillo hops really come forward. Behind these smells there is almost a spicy note that sort of rolls into an earthy note. As you drink this beer there is a nice balanced maltiness to couter act the initial hop pop. As it moves across the palate it evolves into a nice bitter earthy herbal taste. While there is a bitterness to this beer from the hops, it is very nice and balanced. It is not overpowering. This is a nice balanced midwest IPA.

Weak appearance but great aroma of hops and malt. Flavor is definitely nothing special in terms of IPAs, but it is still a good beer. not super bitter, very refreshing, kind of plain but still good, normal IPA flavors. I’d buy it again, considering i am a minnesotan for a good portion of the year

Perhaps my favorite Summit offering to date. Floral and piney notes, clear and fresh. Enough hoppiness for the hopheads without the stick in the eye. Not bitter...just a bit of a bite.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 Smell is of floral hops, appearance is a hazy orange with a slight hazing. Taste is of grapefruit, a little pine and some biscuit. A great everyday IPA

queenholly (3035) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle. Floral citrus hops, light caramel malt aroma. Hazy honey gold with a large off-white head. Grapefruit peel, pine hops, and biscuity malt flavor. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation. I really enjoyed the lighter body which made this a very easy drinking beer.

DrSilverworm (7226) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2012
12oz bottle, best by 10/22/12, from Party Source. Mildly hazy yellow-orange color. Good biger foamy off-white head. Citrusy hop nose. Some loose lace. Light, softer smoother carbonation. Malty bitter sweet taste. Caramel hops. Some spicy soapy hops. Light floral. As it is, this is a pretty unappealing IPA. Deserves a re-rate from a fresher example.
