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 to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.; thanks DrSilverworm). Best by 01/26/14. Looks good; a mostly transparent orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; hoppy with a big pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid IPA.

Good but not amazing. Somewhat fruity hop aroma with some yeast hints. Taste is hop and slightly bitter with some fruit that lingers on the tongue.

Bottle from the fridge, lancaster, pa. use by 03-21-14. Nice aroma. Dry, hoppy citrus - hops are forward, not much malt. A nice fresh clean IPA. I like the hop forward unadulterated hop flavor. Easy to drink if you are into IPAs. nicely done.

@ 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.

badwhale (349) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2013
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.
