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!

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grassy hops with a bit of pine and grapefruit backed by some earthy grains. Flavor has grassy hops throughout with earthy grains and just a touch grapefruit.

Clear gold pour with a lasting white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is tropical fruits, cracker, and grass. Taste tropical fruits initially, followed by a subtle malt sweetness, and finishes with pine and bitterness. Very clean and crisp. Soft palate. Very nice beer.

Hop forward nose and flavor really punch the palate. Notes of citrus, pine and hop resin that finish clean. Very solid brew especially for the cost (at least in MN).

12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Yellow-gold pour with a medium bright white head and tight spotty lacing. Aroma is floral, pine and biscuits. Tastes are light tart up front - then caramel malt, floral, grapefruit. Clean and crisp.

drowland (7111) - Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2013
4/10/13. 12oz bottle. Hazy orange pour with a creamy, pillowy off-white but bright head that fades to a film but coats the glass with lacing. Rich, ripe fruitiness in the aroma - light pit fruits, citrus, berries, tropical, and more - with a touch of dank hoppiness and pale and caramel malts. Lighter flavor than the aroma led on perhaps, but still plenty of mixed fruitiness with a touch of malt. Lingering bitterness and definite dryness. Not bad.

12oz bottle from Spirits Berkley. Poured a good looking burnt orange body with an average sized creamy bright white head. Aroma is rather malty with notes of old citrus fruits and orange marmalade topped toast. Average body with a slight touch of bitterness on the end with lighter to average carbonation. Flavor is the same as the aroma with more of older citrus fruits coming through with toast and grains. Perhaps this bottle was old because I’m not seeing this as 3.6 or higher beer which it’s average is.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear orange with thick off white head. Smelled of fresh orange, grapefruit, and and light caramel malts. Taste was citrus, grapefuit, a bit earthy as well with some weaker pale malts coming in.

I think I may have found a beer that gives Zombie Dust a run for the money. Zombie Dust is my favorite beer ever. However, even though I’m in the Chicago area, it’s not easy to come across ZD. I really enjoy the floral / citrus hops aroma and flavor of Saga. It’s also not very "malty" to me, which I prefer. Saga won’t supplant my favorite, but it sure is good.

Bottle at MMMBellos. Pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Fruity citric hops, lighter flowery notes, light sweetness, and hits of pine. Good stuff.

Sampled at the ’13 Cincey Beerfest. Golden color out of the tap with a frothy off white head. Big fresh citrus hop nose with some tropical fruit notes. Bright fresh tropical fruit and candied orange rind hop flavor with some honey and toast. Sweet orange rind finish. Very tasty.
