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!

Pale yellow pour. Very white, fluffy head that disappears. Aroma is lots of fresh hops, but just a touch of cardboard aroma. Flavor is citrus--lemon and grapefruit--and flowers. Fresh hop, mild bitterness in the finish.

Bottle from Trinity Spirits. Pours a clear copper orange color with a medium off-white head. Some risidual sudsy lacing along the side of the glass. Nice hoppy aroma with a definite fruit note present. Can’t honestly say I can detect the kiwi and apricot from the description, but it’s a nice medley nonetheless. Flavor is heavy towards the hoppy side but there is some trailing malt notes that help balance it out. Dry mouthfeel. Overall a tasty offering from Summit.

[On-tap] Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is big on grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, blood orange, big malt finish. Slight snap peas show up after awhile. Decent mouthfeel, long finish. Overall, not bad. I liked the citrus character, but didn’t overly impress.

jsmerig (1208) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours a hazy orange yellow. Smelled like hop pellets were floating in the beer. Incredibly fresh. Taste is noticeably malty. Much more than the aroma indicates. Southfield is smooth and thick with a thick foamy head. Finishes dry with notes of orange and other citrus. Impressive.

AWISLguy (1176) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle from Otto’s in Brown Deer. Pours yellowish orange - quite clear - with a well defined white head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma has pine and faint citrus. A bit of herbal presence. All somewhat subtle. Taste is of citrus, pine and some resin. Mostly bitter but in a subtle way, again. A nice flavor set with a faint touch of sweetness. Finishes mostly bitter and with some length, especially as the glass went down. A nice easy drinker without a lot of forcefulness. Probably the tastiest Summit I’ve ever had.

RABinCO (1157) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle from a trade. Pours surprisingly light, looks almost like a pils with a nice small ring of white foam. Pleasingly sweet, apricot aroma. Taste is hop-forward with big hits of grapefruit and apricot with a bubblegum finish. A very solid IPA.

Finhead (1151) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Somewhat hazy, yellow pour with a white head. Good aroma. Apricot, strawberry, citrus, and florals. Light body with lively carbonation. Its amazing that something can smell this sweet, yet taste this bitter. Nice complexity and a dry finish.

beerbaaron (1149) - Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2014
Hazy orange golden. Good sized frothy creamy white head. Sweet hoppy fruity aroma. Medium body. Good balance. Sweet. Fruity. Grassy. Moderate gassy grapefruit like bitterness. Semi oily. Too sweet for my pref right now maybe? It has alot going for it but doesn’t quite tip to excellent for me.

Juelze (1138) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2013
My new favorite and a steal at $6.99 a six pack. Aroma is of tropical fruit and floral citrus notes. Taste is very floral with clean crisp citrus notes. Very bright and carbonated. Dangerously drinkable.
