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!

Yellowish orange. Thick, frothy head. Bready malts, lemony aromas, some tangy citrus akin to grapefruit or tangerine. A really nice, really drinkable IPA.

ljthiessen (719) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 19, 2015
Can, at Eaux Claires music festival in Wisconsin. Had a few of these at the festival, definitely the best thing available. Wish I could have tried it properly in a glass, but still enjoyed it - nice tropical fruit notes with medium bitterness, not the most flavourful IPA but tasty and pretty well balanced. Would like to try it again sometime.

On tap. Very aromatic with citrus fruits and slight pine. Very clear amber, copper, and slight orange hue with healthy white head lacing nicely. Subtle caramel sweetness with orange marmalade and pineapple. Medium carbonation and soft bitterness. This is a really nice aggressive IPA that I can drink a lot of.

Bosco (235) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Hazy dark urine color, medium head and lacing. Subtle nose, fruityness and some spices. I bought a multi sixer of all Midwest beers in Elmhurst IL today and boy did I strike gold. $9.99/multi sixer at Binny’s in Forest Park IL

Dogbrick (9425) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Sample at the "Drink Moar Beer!" tasting on 06/12/2015: Slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a bone white head that burns away steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Tropical fruit, hops and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrus, apricot, hops and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Saga IPA has been on my radar for only a short period of time, but I made a point of finding it immediately. I’m glad I did. Saga pours a hazy, light-colored shade of orange with plenty of suds. Aroma boasts grass, lemon, juniper-like spice, and pine. While the aroma wasn’t as dank as I hoped, there’s more than enough botanical goodness in the flavor to make me happy. Saga is piney, juicy, and hop-forward. There are some sweeter elements (grass, nectar, berry, and tropical fruit), but you’re more likely to pick out dry bitterness, spice, and herbaceous characteristics. Saga’s aggression and Norse mythological allusions make it an ideal pairing for Amon Amarth’s music. At least, that’s how I chose to enjoy it.

tmongoose (1663) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle shared. Poured a medium orange color with eggshell head. Nice lacing on the glass, medium malt nose with slight hints of caramel and tropical fruits, the flavor holds true to the aroma. Nice mslt flavor matched evenly with the hops. Nice tropical burst of hops. Mild bitterness on the end. Overall pretty good offering from summit.

12 ounce can. Hazy dark gold color. Big bubbly beige head. Nice lace. Caramel malt nose with notes of tropical fruit and pine hops. Sweet toasted malt flavor has notes of pineapple and mango. Soft mouthfeel. Nice balance and flavor. Very drinkable and tasty.
