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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Draft into a white mug (so can't judge color properly). Aggressive hop taste that is probably only for hop heads. Quality beer. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
