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!

Bottle at MMMBellos. Pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Fruity citric hops, lighter flowery notes, light sweetness, and hits of pine. Good stuff.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Kyle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light nose of lemons, some biscuit, a bit of marmalade. The flavor is medium bitterness, big oranges, toasted malts, almonds, Amarillo is pretty clear. Quite nice.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.; thanks DrSilverworm). Best by 01/26/14. Looks good; a mostly transparent orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; hoppy with a big pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid IPA.

drowland (8759) - Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2013
4/10/13. 12oz bottle. Hazy orange pour with a creamy, pillowy off-white but bright head that fades to a film but coats the glass with lacing. Rich, ripe fruitiness in the aroma - light pit fruits, citrus, berries, tropical, and more - with a touch of dank hoppiness and pale and caramel malts. Lighter flavor than the aroma led on perhaps, but still plenty of mixed fruitiness with a touch of malt. Lingering bitterness and definite dryness. Not bad.

Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2014
12oz bottle courtesy of TheHOFF43 pours with a slightly hazy copper body that has gold edges and supports a dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up thin notes of citrus and floral to spicy hops as well as a neutral sort of malty sweetness. The taste delivers an even mix of hop flavor and hop bitterness that’s a blend of grapefruit, floral and spicy hoppiness. Behind the modest hoppiness is a smooth subtle backbone of sweet malts. Interesting IPA that achieves a light hoppiness that grows on you the more you drink.

Tap. Wow, what a welcome improvement on their basic IPA! Pours clear amber with a medium white head that slowly dissipates with great lacing. Aroma is passionfruit and grapefruit, along with a bit of resin. Flavor is about the same, some sweetness balancing light bitterness into the finish. Body is on the light side, but otherwise an excellent beer.

nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 10, 2013
12oz bottle thanks to Jake65. Pours a clear orange amber with some sudsy white head. Nose is balanced, malt, metal, soap, lemon, orange, apricot. Flavor is balanced as well, malty, honey, orange, pine, soap. Medium bodied. A well balanced, albeit simple, IPA. Very drinkable and the kind of beer you would order twice if it was your local.

PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits (Betton) - 12 oz bottle. Slightly sparkling medium golden pour, slightly thinnish with sticky white head that leaves bubbly lacing. Aroma has some light spruce notes, a bit of mango-like fruitiness. Flavor is refreshing with some light bittersweet citrus notes, some spearmint accents, and a touch of green tea. Mouthfeel is more thin than thick. Better than expected.

jonas (7586) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
Golden, clear, white head. Light aroma, but big American hop flavor, nice tropical notes. Mellow mouthfeel, chewy. Citric finish .

GNBF. Poured clear honeyed golden with a tall, sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet citrus and floral notes over soft bready malt.. fresh and well-balanced. The flavor found lots of bitter grapefruit throughout.. sweet bread, biscuit, and light honey base.. tasty, refreshing finish. Light-medium bodied with moderate bitterness on the palate.. good feel and flow.. this was really good!
