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!

The color is a slightly hazy amber due to the fine-grain sediment, and there is a large off-white head sitting atop the beer. The aroma blends floral, resin, and citrus hops with diacetyl and grapefruit; the taste is initially quite bitter, but it eventually fades to include a slight level of sourness even though the beer is unbalanced and favoring the bitter flavor. The palate fuses a bitter finish, soft carbonation, medium body, and a slightly sticky texture.

12 oz. can thanks to Skyview for this. Crystal clear gold color with lasting head retention. Aroma is straight out a west coast IPA. Pine, herbs, orange marmalade and floral hops.

Flavor is nice bitter pine, citrus hints of grass and balanced with a good amount of grain and sweet malts. The bitterness is mostly pine with a lingering effect. Body is medium with a crisp finish. Damn this takes me by surprise, nicely balanced with just the right amount of bitterness. Any Hop Head should be pleased. Nice brew, Thanks Bob!

Bottle; poured a unique orange-ish color. Not much off white head. Aroma of fruit, citrus, berries, some sweetness and earth. Easy drinking, but complex in a subtle way. Fruity and earthy, a nice sweetness with a good caramel backbone. Lingering finish. Enjoyable.

Onslow (1184) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear orange amber brew. Wonderful aroma of tropical fruit, fresh fruit, over ripe fruit, citrus (fruit)... Taste is very hops forward and just really exquisite - like a hops wine or something. One of the brews that is taking things to a new level.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Pours a cloudy light orange color with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is mostly malt with some citrus and earthy qualities. Taste is malt forward with dank, earthy hops in the background. Nice mild bitterness and dry finish. Medium body for an IPA. Overall this IPA is different from the citrus and pine hop bombs I normally enjoy, but this is great in it’s own way.
