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!

PhillyCraft (7935) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 On tap at pour house, copper color with a good bit of carbonation and a medium to large off white head. Great lacing retention. Aromas of centennial and citra, lots of pine, and juicy citrus. Taste is about the same with some honey, and wood tones mixed with a bitter finish. Somewhat grainy but not over the top. Too much carb in this one. Pretty solid offering as far as ipas go.

12 oz. can thanks to Skyview for this. Crystal clear gold color with lasting head retention. Aroma is straight out a west coast IPA. Pine, herbs, orange marmalade and floral hops.

Flavor is nice bitter pine, citrus hints of grass and balanced with a good amount of grain and sweet malts. The bitterness is mostly pine with a lingering effect. Body is medium with a crisp finish. Damn this takes me by surprise, nicely balanced with just the right amount of bitterness. Any Hop Head should be pleased. Nice brew, Thanks Bob!

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear honey gold. A decent almost white head. Fairly big hops are fruity and interesting. Hops are big and fruity. They are complex. Malts are light. Passion fruit comes through late. Nice.

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!

JStax (7176) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer has a hazy copper appearance with a white head of foam. Pretty decent retention. Leaves nice rings of lacing. The aroma has zesty citrus fruit and some tropical, pineapple like notes. A little pine as well. Dry, pine like bitterness. Some juicy sweetness as well. Medium body, but gets a little thin toward the finish. I’ve never noticed that in any other beer. Pretty solid IPA. I’m really enjoying it.

12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee Muscatine. Golden, pale and pretty clear with a sticky white head. Nice fresh aroma of tropical fruits, citrus hops, floral notes, herbs and light pale malts. Similar flavor, crisp, hoppy and lightly fruity with medium bitterness and a touch of malty sweetness. Medium body with a clean, smooth feel, easy to drink. Wow I am impressed.

Aroma is citrus, pine and hop resin. The flavor is citrus, mild tropical fruit, a hint of malts and a deep hop resin/bitterness in the finish.
