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!

Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Mild grapefruit hop aromas. Somewhat bland with mild grapefruit hop notes. A bit on the unbalanced side with a below average mouthfeel.

ajnepple (2115) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2014
12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee Muscatine. Golden, pale and pretty clear with a sticky white head. Nice fresh aroma of tropical fruits, citrus hops, floral notes, herbs and light pale malts. Similar flavor, crisp, hoppy and lightly fruity with medium bitterness and a touch of malty sweetness. Medium body with a clean, smooth feel, easy to drink. Wow I am impressed.

deaconmike (375) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear pale gold with white fizzy head; splotchy lacing. Aroma is floral hops along with citrus and tropical fruit; some light biscuity malt in the background. Taste is decidedly bitter with citrus rind present. Nice and juicy. Crisp clean palate; not too heavy. Nice brew, could probably drink a few of these.

bwa5879 (639) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bright orange pour of medium clarity and a quarter inch of white head, moderate bubbles rising from the glass. Carbonation is farely lively, mouthfeel foamy, very very clean finish. Really nice citrus hop nose, robust and rounded out by a biscuity malt presence. Taste is superb, crisp and juicy. Fresh very juicy citrus hops, floral and tropical fruits, strong citrus rind too. Very well done IPA from summit. May be more potent out of the bottle if my memory serves me right.

Bamalr (15) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Nice foamy head with lots of lace. Citrusy with lemon and lemon zest. The flavor was more of the same and had the light addition of tropical fruit and pale malt. It finished dry and solidly bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very approachable, sessionable IPA. Sampled from the bottle with glass pour. Golden color with moderate lacing. Aromatic floral, citrus and pine notes. Very balanced flavor, with subtle malt and hop finish. Very drinkable with clean finish.

Pours a decent gold color and has nice lacing. Smells malty and floral. A nice beer and a good session beer.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2014
To me, despite the ABV, this drank more like an APA. It looked okay, pale amber/yellow bodied with a modest foamy head with plenty of lacing. The aroma was all hops, citrusy with lemon and lemon zest. The flavor was more of the same and had the light addition of tropical fruit and pale malt. It finished dry and solidly bitter, this being the only bit that made it seem like an IPA.
