Saga pours a clearer golden color, with a small lacing head. There is a nice bold floral. The taste is a nice bold floral hoppy flavor finishes wet. Good full flavors, good full body, yet very drinkable. Overall a very nice easy drinking yet bold IPA.

So, killing time on a gd 4 hour layover in St. Paul/Minneapolis airport. Poured by the bartender into a silly little Sam Adams perfect pint tulip. She then ran away with the bottle. Ordered via an iPad that accompanied each stool at the bar. Pretty nifty.
A: Golden yellow with a slight haziness. Good effervescence. 1 finger white head. Sudsy. Very nice lacing and retention. Good so far.
S: Mostly hops in the nose. More citrus-heavy, but some light pine notes. Grapefruit. Lemon. There's a bit of less-than-pristine bar glass funk happening. I don't think it's from the beer. Not so complex, but nice.
T: Solid hop bitterness up front and throughout. Mostly citrus. Grapefruit again. There is some malt for balance, but not too much, which I like. Lingering bitterness of grapefruit pulp on the back end with some faint sweetness. Tasty.
M: Full with moderate carbonation. Very nicely carbonated, actually. Feels great.
O: Never had this before. Hell, never heard of this before, but pretty nice. Don't know if it's worth a 4 hour flight delay, but I like this pretty well. A bit one-dimensional, but leans in the directions I prefer in an IPA. Drank it right down and would do so again, for sure.
