This is a great IPA (Ameican or even West Coast) effort by Summit. Their traditional IPA is a benchmark, truly fantastic. Saga is also a great example. It looks great, smells better and tastes solid. All the Seven C flavors with a hint of tradition and quality, which lacks in alot of new breweries. Summit never disappoints. They didn't rush to make a hoppy American IPA, and it shows. Thank you Summit.

A: A clear gold color, with a good amount of off white head at the top that stuck around for a while, a slight lacing around the glass as well.

S: Grapefruit hits you like a ton of bricks right off the bat, slight hint of bananas and strong hint of pine.

T: Grapefruit just like the nose, hint of pineapple and honey, good amount of hops tasted on the tongue as well.

M:Light bodied, a good amount of carbonation, a little sticky.

O: Not a bad brew, very refreshing and easy drinker.
