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!

Pretty sure this is my all time favorite beer. Perfect amount of Hops, lots!

Perfect IPA a great addition to the Summit year round lineup. Fruity but not too fruity and plenty of hops. Great in the bottle and on tap.

The aroma is wonderful and powerful with a strong hop scent that will even leave the bottle cap smelling good. The beer retains a nice head when poured into a pint glass. The hop character is wonderful and is unsurprisingly the stable of this IPA. A medium body and a lingering bitter, hoppy taste leaves a pleasant finish to this beer. I can’t lie. This is my favorite beer and has been for a while now. Whenever I get a gift from someone it is more often than not this beer. Wonderful on tap, but just as good poured into a pint glass from a bottle or can. Summit really hit the mark with this one.

Had this tasty little number at the Cleveland Winter Beerfest last night 1-31-14. Very similar to Fathead’s Headhunter IPA. Hop forward and aggressive must try for any hop head!

powerful bitterness paired with robust malt that finishes in cracker. a floral character in sugary sweetness. abundant citrus and pine cone. fine orange blossom and tangerine delight the senses. no sense of alcohol and not at all wimpy. a bit of sticky in the body. a nearly perfect ipa.

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.

Got this from Cub Liquor for first try. Tasted great with steak on the grill with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Will probably try again.

I think I may have found a beer that gives Zombie Dust a run for the money. Zombie Dust is my favorite beer ever. However, even though I’m in the Chicago area, it’s not easy to come across ZD. I really enjoy the floral / citrus hops aroma and flavor of Saga. It’s also not very "malty" to me, which I prefer. Saga won’t supplant my favorite, but it sure is good.

On tap, at various taverns and 12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. This one is a winner. The folks at Summit have outdone themselves. Very nice slightly pale amber, with crisp aromatic head. Very hoppy like most IPAs but a little more citrusy, flowery character, allowing more of the malt body through. It just has an overall predominant freshness to it. It’s hoppy without getting bogged down like some IPAs do. This really hits all the right notes for me. Summit EPA will always be their standard bearer, and rightfully so. It’s still my goto beer in on many nights out. But Saga may well be my new favorite Summit.

Amazingly fruity but still high in hops. Perfect for the outdoors. Recommend cold for the crisp flavors to show and the fruits can show a little as it warms.
