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!

Sammy (10659) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2013
Fresh bottle from Capone’s. A bold minty spicy peppery IPA that stands out as the aftertaste is still on my palate some time after consumption. Deep yellow with good retained head. Middling mouthfeel. Good drinkability. Invigorating aroma.

adnielsen (10374) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bomber @ bnielsen13. Pours a very hazy, bright orange appearance with an off white head. Tropical fruit, mango, spicy hops, light toast in the nose. Moderate high sweetness and bitterness. A little thick mouth feel. Some caramel and pineapple and citrus. A little old bottle but fine.

deyholla (9717) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grassy hops with a bit of pine and grapefruit backed by some earthy grains. Flavor has grassy hops throughout with earthy grains and just a touch grapefruit.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2012
12oz bottle, best by 10/22/12, from Party Source. Mildly hazy yellow-orange color. Good biger foamy off-white head. Citrusy hop nose. Some loose lace. Light, softer smoother carbonation. Malty bitter sweet taste. Caramel hops. Some spicy soapy hops. Light floral. As it is, this is a pretty unappealing IPA. Deserves a re-rate from a fresher example.

DocLock (9350) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Squat bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear dark straw with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is...oh my God, Bob Griese, lemme tell ya bout the nose. A huge concoction of that great Citra hop that has quickly become my favortie; tons of tangerine, honeydew, kiwi, mango, passion fruit, pine nuts, resiny sticky hops and tropical fruit all over the place, and malt to spare. The taste is that great Citra hop tropical fruit flavor, complex, with caramel malt to balance. Finishes hoppy and fruity, this one is awesome.

arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is clear yellow-orange, pour is clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of slight onion, nice pineapple, tropical fruit, hints of nice biscuit and vanilla. Taste is a nice mix of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, hints of vanilla, touch of biscuit and grain, finishing with some pine and bitter. Nice!

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Muddy Pig. Clear light orange pour with a white head. Tropical fruit hops on aroma and taste. Very flavorful.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Kyle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light nose of lemons, some biscuit, a bit of marmalade. The flavor is medium bitterness, big oranges, toasted malts, almonds, Amarillo is pretty clear. Quite nice.

Ibrew2or3 (7957) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2014
12oz bottle courtesy of TheHOFF43 pours with a slightly hazy copper body that has gold edges and supports a dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up thin notes of citrus and floral to spicy hops as well as a neutral sort of malty sweetness. The taste delivers an even mix of hop flavor and hop bitterness that’s a blend of grapefruit, floral and spicy hoppiness. Behind the modest hoppiness is a smooth subtle backbone of sweet malts. Interesting IPA that achieves a light hoppiness that grows on you the more you drink.
