Starting a tap, we are going to explore a new brew from the Summit Brewing Company. The new brew is called Summit Saga India Pale Ale. Summit Brewing Conmpany was founded in 1986 by Mark Stutrud in St Paul, Minnesota. It is nice to see this brewery trying to do something new in their beer portfolio. When they started releasing their Unchained Series, there was a change in the air in the Summit Brewery. They were doing beers that fit the St Paul area. Now they are trying to grow even more in other areas of the states. This beer is their second new beer this year. The first new one was their new Summer Ale replace their old seasonal, which was Summit Hefenizen Ale. Let us get into the beer.
It has a light copper color. It has a grapefruit to mango smell with a little spicy. The taste of the beer is of grapefruit and mango with a slight carbonation taste. This is a very drinkable beer. This is a slight different IPA then what is on the market.
Here is a description from their website (www.summitbrewing.com):
Named after the Norse goddess Sága, drinking companion of the God Odin. With a divine tropical fruit hop aroma and clean, assertive bitterness.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing the bar, I love this beer and I am happy to see this brewery doing something new and different. There are a few beers that from this brewery. I love their EPA, maibock, porter, winter ale, and oatmeal stout that I wish was package. The rest of their beers are average. This is my thought pattern not yours. Make sure you try their beers and draw your judgment on them. However, this beer to me has brought them back to the front of the line, I cannot wait to see how this beer does against rest of the beer market. Enjoy it! Drink it! Metal it! \m/
