This is my favorite IPA. Pours a gorgeous golden hue, and smells wonderful. The taste is very hoppy up front, with a noticeable citrus "background" taste. Definitely not for someone who doesn't like bitterness. My favorite Summit beer after the Great Northern Porter.

pours an amazing golden hazy beer. smells of tropical fruit and citrus, tastes like it smells with a balanced malt profile. This is a SOLID IPA, the Rakau hops really shine. the only thing better than this beer is the price at 6.99/6-pack. Summit really nailed this beer.

Saga is a well made IPA that drinks very nice.
Looks good with a tall beige head loaded with tight bubbles. The color is golden amber, similar to most IPA's out there.
The aroma is citrusy and bright. I notice grapefruit the most.
Taste is more malty with hop flavor being almost absent. Has a mild bitter finish.
Drinks smooth with just some lingering bitterness in the finish.
I like this beer it was very good and highly drinkable.

A very good, West Coast-style IPA from Minnesota. Lots of citrus, and the grapefruit comes through. While Summit is kinda overshadowed by Surly, this established brewery puts out a damn fine IPA in its own right.
