4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with thick white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. Floral hop aroma and resin. Similar flavor to aroma with nice light bitterness. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 Fl Oz bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aromas are heavy citrus, fruit, and a touch of pine. Tastes are fruit, plenty of malt, and an astringent bitterness. Light to medium body, smooth (almost creamy), assertive carbonation, and a medium astringent finish. Nice beer though I have to admit this sample was drank well after the “drink by” date.

Very fruity on first taste but that doesn’t show up again after 2 sips. Fades to an even blend of hops and malt where no individual flavors stand out. It’s not like some where you taste things in sequence; start, middle, finish. Some would call that well balanced but I find it non-descript and a bit boring. This isn’t a bad patio beer but it’s nothing special either.

12oz bottle pours a hazy copper with a white head and nice lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, citrus, pine, and funk. Flavor is bitter that coats. Delicious.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Harry’s Bottle Shop, Grand Forks, ND. Poured bright orange/yellow with a thin head. Not sure how long this has been on the shelves at Harry’s but the aroma was somewhat skunky. Mild citrus but the aroma reminded me more of a pilsner from Germany. The flavor was different. Moderate citrus hops. Pretty dry and a satisfying bitter finish. Good.

On tap at Rosa Mexicano in Minneapolis. Translucent gold color with half a finger white head that quickly recedes. Pine and citrus nose. Apricot and some passionfruit up front, followed by malt and bitter hops. Enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From can into glass. Pours yellow with white head. Big aroma of resiny hops, and light tropical citrus fruit. Crisp, pine flavor with a touch of biscuity malt in the background that really served to show case the hops bitterness. A solid bitter bite and a nice finish. A very good ipa

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Petite bouteille. Belle robe orange avec une mousse terriblement solide. Des morceaux littéralement collées sur mon verre. Petit nez fruité (pêche, agrumes et autres fruite acidulés) avec des effluves de poivre et une mince couche maltée. Bouche un peu timide, fruitée, mordante mais aussi légèrement sucrée. Les saveurs sont moins intéressantes. Au palais, le corps est paisible et passablement juteux. L’arrière-goût est amer, floral mais légèrement malhabile.
