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!

Amber and slightly hazy. Piney Hops, Grapefruit, Pineapple, and Yeasts with an overlying oak flavor. Tastes similar to Sam Adam Griffin’s Bow except with oak. Mildly carbonated and light bodied makes for easy drinking. A solid IPA from Summit overall, it’s nice to see them changing up their styles every once in a while.

Nice malty aroma with some citrus. the flavor has a nice bit of bitterness balanced with a malt base. Nice and dry, quite refreshing.

Bottle. Moderate roasted grain for the malt, pine for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with pepper and a hint of sulfer in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminshing. Color is clear amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightl acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Nice IPA, I could drink plenty of these and not get a bit tired of them.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Bottle. Pour is a slightly hazy orange with a small diminishing white head with nice lacing. Aroma is clearly of citrus hops. Flavor is crisp, mineral water, fresh hops, and grapefruit citrus fruit. Theres some malt in there to try to balance things out some, but it doesnt mask the crisp hop profile. Light bodied and quite effervescent. Nice, dry & bitter finish. I REALLY enjoyed these.

Tap at Holiday Inn Bloomington, a lighter colored but full of taste and hoppy goodness, anything with citra is a win in my book and this one has got it.. good stuff.

Draft at Fermentation. Golden pur with a frothy white head. Nose is citrusy and pine like hops with some sweet malt backbone. Flavor is similar with some more tropical fruitiness and spice. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Not bad.

First impression is the fantastic, crisp aroma coming from great hop profile. Clean and refreshing. Pours a nice bready color with one finger head that quickly dissipates. Very nice looking brew that looks inviting and refreshing. Absolutely wonderful taste, with smooth and simple malt profile (simple in a great way) that is perfectly complimented by what I can only call a smooth bitterness. Finishes clean and somewhat dry. Doesn’t leave you puckered and I was left wanting another. Great all around beer. In my opinion, the best beer Summit has made. Love it!

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Pretty good all around IPA. Can not beat it for $7.99 in my neck of the woods. Floral and piney,blah,blah. Good stuff!
