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!

Onslow (1206) - 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.

kansascityCW (109) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2014
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.

PhilJackson80 (354) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 5, 2014
12 oz bottle. Tasted on 5/5/14. Beer from Beertopia Omaha, NE. The beer pours to a medium golden color with a medium white head. The aroma has a slight cat pee, a little floral & some pungent citrus notes to it. The taste is similar with a light body with a slight bitter front followed by a dry clean finish. Overall pretty nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I found this IPA to be very refreshing and the hops were great in bringing out the best in this beer. There was no bitter aftertaste but, instead, there was a nice appealing light fruitiness.
