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!

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 Pours a copper color with prominent white fluffy head; quite attractive. Malty, fruity and hoppy aroma. Taste is biscuity with notes of tropical fruit, pine and a big grassy citrus hop balance. Good malt backbone; clean & crisp. Good flavors all around...a high quality IPA.

12oz bottle pours a bright golden/orange with a large white head. Aroma of resinous hops, lots of tropical fruits and citrus. Taste has a nice well rounded hop bitterness with sweet fruits. A little light on the flavor altogether but still really nice, clean and refreshing.

Pours a clear gold with a thick lt tan head...great lacing. Aroma is very herbal...mild melon notes. Flavor follows suit...herbal and spicy with noted of melon and kiwi. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry and very herbal/bitter finish.

Bottle: Dark gold pour with a medium off white head. aroma of tropical fruit, apricot as well. some biscuit and caramel under that. flavour is floral and fruity hop. biscuity flat malt under that. Expected a bit more of a firm malt body as summit usually does.

Squat bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear dark straw with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is...oh my God, Bob Griese, lemme tell ya bout the nose. A huge concoction of that great Citra hop that has quickly become my favortie; tons of tangerine, honeydew, kiwi, mango, passion fruit, pine nuts, resiny sticky hops and tropical fruit all over the place, and malt to spare. The taste is that great Citra hop tropical fruit flavor, complex, with caramel malt to balance. Finishes hoppy and fruity, this one is awesome.

Really good IPA from St. Paul’s Summit Brewing. Pours a copper-gold with medium head. Strong hop aroma. Flavor a bit like heavily-mineraled water, with the citrus and pine bite of your best IPAs. Very satisfying beer on a hot day. Nice clean, bitter finish.

Bottle from Trinity Spirits. Pours a clear copper orange color with a medium off-white head. Some risidual sudsy lacing along the side of the glass. Nice hoppy aroma with a definite fruit note present. Can’t honestly say I can detect the kiwi and apricot from the description, but it’s a nice medley nonetheless. Flavor is heavy towards the hoppy side but there is some trailing malt notes that help balance it out. Dry mouthfeel. Overall a tasty offering from Summit.

The saga continues (wu tang?). Clear golden pour with a white head. Very clear golden. I got excited. Citrus fruit aroma, some graham cracker. Flavor isn’t nearly as hope forward as I like it, but the malt profile doesn’t get in the way. Mildly bitter finish, good carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a clear bright orange color with a minimal head that recedes quickly. Pale malt, slightly sweet, sits in the background. Hops are prominent but mild. Lots of fruitiness going on, kiwi, apricot, ripe fruits. Finishes with a sort of lingering biscuit cereal flavor. Pretty easy on the palate and smooth going down, almost like a session IPA. Not bad.
