Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a nice citrus fruity hop with almost a peach aroma in there. Flavor is a nice hop resin that leaves a lasting sweet grapfruit on the tounge. This was a nice IPA and the six was on the cheaper side to boot.

On tap at Coopers Tavern, pours a clear golden with a soapy white head, the aroma has a lot of citrus mixed in with a little bit of pine as well, the flavor has a nice smooth front end with some tropical fruit and citrus with a nice balance in the finish, very refreshing on a 100 degree for Wisconsin, nice.

Clear golden amber white head. Citrus zest, light floral fruit, faint pine and caramel. Moderate pine and citrus flavor with trailing bitterness. Little malt coming through. Medium crisp palate. Crazy drinkable, but could be beefed up in the aroma quite a bit and flavor to a lesser extent. Definitely above average, but could be great.

July 4, 2012 bottle from MGM. Dark orangish pour with nice head that lasted and lacing. Aroma was primarily the citrus hops and maybe some malt. Taste was very well balanced with the citrus bitterness, but a clean finish. Light to medium body and slight carbonation. Not a big ipa guy, but I really enjoyed this.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 7-3-12. Mineraly aroma features citrus, pine, and sap scents. Good American IPA smell. Pours a clear, dark gold with moderate effervescence and a large amount of appetizing, uneven, beige head. Produces good, long-lasting lacing. Dry, lightly citrusy flavor matches the aroma, but I wish the taste were stronger. Long, dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. Soft in the palate. Overall, Summit Saga IPA is enjoyable but not special.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 Pours a clear copper with lots of white head, very active carbonation. Aroma is floral hops and lots of citrus, very nice. First thing I noticed is how crisp and refreshing, a somewhat light body. It sacrifices no flavor for that though, grapefruit, citrus, lots of floral hops and tropical fruit flavors, some pine. Little bit of caramel malt but the fresh hop flavor pretty much drowns it out. Tons of floral hop and tropical fruit flavors. The best IPA at this price point by far. My new favorite session beer. I haven’t bought a 6er that wasn’t fresh as hell yet. Very underrated on here.

Slight slight sour hops. Lighter water finish. A little spice burn. Better when colder.

Somewhat hazy, yellow pour with a white head. Good aroma. Apricot, strawberry, citrus, and florals. Light body with lively carbonation. Its amazing that something can smell this sweet, yet taste this bitter. Nice complexity and a dry finish.

Draft at World of Beer Naperville. Pours an attractive orangey gold with a fluffy offwhite head. The nose is catpee, deep passionfruit and guava, peaches and spice. Clean yeast overall. On tasting, medium-high bitterness and dry. Not much in the way of sweetness, which is nice. Catty and refreshing, lots of juicy hops that don’t become cloying. Pretty damn fine IPA overall though perhaps a bit busy in terms of hopping.
