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.
Rated this about a week ago on tap at an Applebee’s in Grand Forks, ND. Pours clear golden with a thick bone white head with great retention and lace. Taste is lightly bitter with faint candy sweetness. Flavors of citrus, melon, pepper. Aroma is faint, but I get citrus peel, faint grain. Smooth and easy drinking. Tasty.

Taste: smooth semi sweet malts balance with gentle hops. mild nose. Amber, mostly clear, with a big foamy head and ringed lattice of lace. Medium/lite body. Drinkable at 80 IBUs thedm (6225) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 7, 2017
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated body light yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mild citrus crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium citrus aftertaste. The tasty flavor contained notes of citrus and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. olenickj (114) - Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Draft. App: Cloudy gold, medium white head. Aroma: Heavy citrus with a sweet undertone. Taste: Orange and grapefruit, pleasant but not deep. Palate: Full and long lasting, a little gritty. Over: Enjoyable and refreshing if not spectacular.
JPDIPSO (6240) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Dark golden to light amber in color. Taller mostly lasting, off-white head. Decent lace. Hoppy aromas, with ruby red grapefruit, tropical fruit (including mango and papaya). Pale malt and marzipan also join in the scents. Sweeter start, with a mild acidity. Quite fruity. Bits of citric zest wander about. 5/12

Really nice cloudy amber appearance with good lacing. Kind of flat / oily texture with mild soap and a hint of grapefruit and pine. Not great but definitely drinkable.
asheft (3093) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2016
On tap at Outback Steakhouse, Bloomington, MN. Fresh pineapple juice aroma with a little base malt. Crystal clear copper under a lacy, white sheet. Mostly tropical hops flavour with assertive, clean bitterness and a medium base malt and light caramel backbone. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp. rosenbergh (11613) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2016
12 oz bottle. BB 11/27/16. (Little Brown Jug) Biwabik, MN.
Cloudy orangey golden color with a small off-white head.
Orange, fruity hops, mild bitterness, mild yoghurt notes and sweetish malt in the aroma. Not bad.
The flavor is fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness, dryness and malt. Pretty decent IPA. A bit thinnish though.
