4.38/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Translucent light orange/yellow color. Pours a white two finger head that's sticking around. Reminds me of white grape juice. Looks appealing.

Aroma: There is some pine in there but it is completely overwhelmed by tropical fruit notes. This is balanced out by the bitter hop tones that come afterwards.

Taste: Nicely bitter from start to finish. Some grapefruit and pineapple in there but not as present as in the nose. Really nice juicyness to this beer.

Mouthfeel: Pretty drinkable given it's an IPA. Very easy to slug down. This approaches sessionable territory.

Final Thoughts: When I heard Summit was making a new IPA I had some high expectations and Saga did not disappoint. This beer takes the definition of West Coast IPA and just about perfects it.
