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!

Pours straw with a white head. Some fresh flowery hops on the nose. Strong forward hops, with some citrus note. Not balanced, but clean and enjoyable.

rosenbergh (10367) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2016
12 oz bottle. BB 11/27/16. (Little Brown Jug) Biwabik, MN. Cloudy orangey golden color with a small off-white head. Orange, fruity hops, mild bitterness, mild yoghurt notes and sweetish malt in the aroma. Not bad. The flavor is fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness, dryness and malt. Pretty decent IPA. A bit thinnish though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

commonshawn (1048) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2016
12oz bottle, can’t believe I haven’t rated this before . Dark gold with white head. Heavy grapefruit nose with hops. Bitter, cloying, strong grapefruit. Finish is the same, lasts long especially when cold. This beer gets more love than it deserves but it’s ok.

Andrew196 (1441) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Clear gold, lovely white head, super lacey. Aroma of pine and celery. Crisp on the tongue, pretty good stuff, more an English style IPA, a nice bready, earthy flavor to balance the hops out.

Medium hazy amber with light head. Earthy and herbal hop notes on nose. Slightly grainy, very bitter, white grapefruit, pepper, juniper, light toffee. Clean, medium mouthfeel, wet coating on mouth, moderately bitter finish. Not bad.

ibrubeer (302) - Omaha, USA - APR 20, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 Bottle at Marriott MSP. Aroma was a nice citrus and citrus fruit, and a little bit of pine. Light amber color with a white head that lasts a long time, and nice lacing. A bit of citrus hoppiness in the flavor, that turns into a little piney aftertaste. Pleasant though. Med-light bodied. Overall, I thought it was initially an old school piney west coast IPA, but it evolved into a fruity combination of the two. Pretty nice! EDIT: Draft at Marriott MSP. Same comments as before.
