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!

July 4, 2012 bottle from MGM. Dark orangish pour with nice head that lasted and lacing. Aroma was primarily the citrus hops and maybe some malt. Taste was very well balanced with the citrus bitterness, but a clean finish. Light to medium body and slight carbonation. Not a big ipa guy, but I really enjoyed this.

Tap. Hazy rust orange with a fluffy two finger head. Lots of nice grapefruit hoppiness, slight caramel and grassiness in the aroma. Nice pop of grapefruit hops, fairly aggressive, mellows with some juicy melon. Medium to lighter body with spritzy carbonation.

Atom (2556) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2012
12oz bottle pours a bright golden/orange with a large white head. Aroma of resinous hops, lots of tropical fruits and citrus. Taste has a nice well rounded hop bitterness with sweet fruits. A little light on the flavor altogether but still really nice, clean and refreshing.

Bottle at craft ale house. Pours clear gold with a small white head. The aroma has mango and apricot, floral notes, a bit of pine. The taste is medium bitter, a bit of passionfruit, not too dry.

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.

Bottle, courtesy of CanIHave4Beers. Cheers, Andy and Dennetta! Pours a beauty, pale golden-orange, hazy with a creamy whit head atop. Nose shows spicy Cascade, citrus, grapefruit, and some grain. Taste adds pleasant bitterness. Great mouthfeel.

fidelis83 (2497) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Pours medium gold with a 2 finger, creamy, slightly chunky off white head that has great retention and leaves nice thick rings of lacing. Aroma is huge on citrus, mango heavy tropical fruit, stone fruit, floral and spicy hops, some caramel, toast, mineral notes and biscuity malts in there, but the fresh hop aromas really take the front seat. Tastes similarly, but a little more balanced. Caramel, toast, mineral notes and quite a bit more biscuit than I expected along with citrus and a little sweet stone fruit up front, folowed by lots more citrus, tropical fruit, a little pine and a decent amount of dank weed. the finish turns a little more spicy, but the complexities of the hop blend hold on to create a nice citrus and tropical fruit, lightly bitter aftertaste. Light to medium bodied with a light to medium, blanketing carbonation, which suits the beer very well. This is a very good IPA, the hop profile is great.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Nice hoppy floral aroma with slight hints of grapefruit. Light in body and somewhat light in flavor but still has that nice drinkablitly I love in certain IPA’s.
