This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and a half. Lacing forms nicely speckled with bubbles inside of it. Light carbonation was seen rising. The smell had a sweet citrus with a light honey over top of a sticky piney hops. The taste was mainly sweet through the combination of sweet citrus and piney hops to sweet malts. A light sweet sticky piney - ness leads to a sticky sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with an easy carbonation rolling over my tongue. A slight sharpness is there but becomes quite settling. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA for what it is.

Look: Pours a beautiful clear gold, with a fingers worth of off-white head.

Smell: Hops are there with a citrusy tone striking the nose, orange and grapefruit. Swirling gives the nose some more bready notes

Taste: oranges, melon, grapefruit, and some malt.

Feel: medium to medium light body, plenty of carbonation, and some bitterness on the backend. Really, a pleasant feel. Saga finishes pretty clean.

Overall: Saga is a solid IPA from Summit, with some citrus characteristics, but remains plenty balanced. Not a highly sought after brew, Saga is well crafted IPA, that's very consistent.

Typical Ipa orange, pretty floral aroma, a hint of pine and mango, taste is pretty much bitter hops, nice aftertaste, I am not getting the citrus, but overall a good beer.
