3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ Jungle Jims / Eastgate - Clear medium amber with a good 1/2" head, thin bands of lace. Taste is typical IPA: malt begins things ,starts growing in the palate, only to be headed off by strong pine hops that nearly obliterate everything. Good for hop lovers, but a little like overdoing the ketchup on the eggs. Very drinkable, not anything special.

Draft. Clear golden. Strong fruity aroma! Peach and kiwi and mango, great! Citrus hops dominate the flavour as well. Light bodied hop forward beer, sadly this would probably have higher ratings if done by another brewer.

Quite fruity. The description helped me place the fruit - kiwi can be tasted, but it isn’t out of place. Lots of lacing and a thin white head. The beer is fairly light in color. You get a big pop of flavor, nicely balanced, and it finishes clean. I don’t love the kiwi/passionfruit flavor, but this is a tasty beer.

Bottle to glass mug. Pours a cloudy yellow with an off white head that dissapates not too quickly. Great nose of citrus & piney hops. Flavor closely resembles grapefruit. Great straight up IPA.

Pours a typical orange/gold with a nice head. Aroma is very citrus forward with a nice crisp hop note. Taste is citrus and a nice hop finish. Well balanced palate. Very crisp drinkable IPA.

pours a copper color with a medium white head. the aroma is citrus, pine, tropical fruits, and lots of hops. the taste is citrus and fruit up front but finishes with some hope bitterness that sticks around a little while.

12/16/2013: Summit Sága IPA... I generally am NOT a fan of Summit beers and have yet to find one that I liked, so I just stopped trying them altogether. However, I was convinced that I needed to try this one, so I did, albeit VERY reluctantly. To my surprise, this one is pretty damn good! I really like the balance and blend of the lightly honey malts and soft floral-citrus-Noble hops in the flavor. The bitterness level is actually fairly high, but it is softeness by the honeycomb and fleshy fruit flavors. This is a tricky beer to properly describe, but I’m quite pleased with it and look forward to trying it on tap if it pops up somewhere. 12 fl. oz. bottle from Party Town in Florence, KY.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that left a little lacing. The nose is bright and fruity with some tropical and citrus hop notes. The malt on the nose is pretty light, just some bready and dry crockery malt. The flavor is super fruity from the hops, lots of tropical fruit notes. There’s still a pretty noticeable bitterness to this though, which is a little unique to these tropical fruit-heavy beers. Light fairly dry malt base that lets the hops do their thing. Light to medium bodied with a slight clinginess, moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty good IPA, among the better Summit beers I’ve had.
