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!

Had it after a Zombie Dust so keep that in mind, also a bit cold. It is very citrus rindy. Nice hop flavors.

Ughsmash (7159) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2012
GNBF. Poured clear honeyed golden with a tall, sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet citrus and floral notes over soft bready malt.. fresh and well-balanced. The flavor found lots of bitter grapefruit throughout.. sweet bread, biscuit, and light honey base.. tasty, refreshing finish. Light-medium bodied with moderate bitterness on the palate.. good feel and flow.. this was really good!

Ibrew2or3 (6998) - 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.

deyholla (6746) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 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.

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.

DrSilverworm (6602) - 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.

arminjewell (6294) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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!

Bottle at MMMBellos. Pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Fruity citric hops, lighter flowery notes, light sweetness, and hits of pine. Good stuff.

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.

drowland (6100) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2013
4/10/13. 12oz bottle. Hazy orange pour with a creamy, pillowy off-white but bright head that fades to a film but coats the glass with lacing. Rich, ripe fruitiness in the aroma - light pit fruits, citrus, berries, tropical, and more - with a touch of dank hoppiness and pale and caramel malts. Lighter flavor than the aroma led on perhaps, but still plenty of mixed fruitiness with a touch of malt. Lingering bitterness and definite dryness. Not bad.
