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!

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.

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!

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.

wlajwl (6749) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 14, 2012
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.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that left a little lacing. The nose is bright and fruity with some tropical and citrus hop notes. The malt on the nose is pretty light, just some bready and dry crockery malt. The flavor is super fruity from the hops, lots of tropical fruit notes. There’s still a pretty noticeable bitterness to this though, which is a little unique to these tropical fruit-heavy beers. Light fairly dry malt base that lets the hops do their thing. Light to medium bodied with a slight clinginess, moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty good IPA, among the better Summit beers I’ve had.

Braudog (6675) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Draft at the International Tap House. Textbook American APA. Right down the middle visuals, golden and shiny, big poofy head. This is citrus all the way. Nice light and drinkable offering, but fully flavored. Love it. (#5232, 8/29/2013)

Patrickctenchi (6556) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Nearly clear amber-gold with a stroong, off-white head. Aroma of citrus with a slightly vinyl/bandaide note. Taste is soft herbal bitter, mild grapefruit pee;. Rather dull.
