2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber/color with about an inch of head. Aroma is caramel malt and bread. Taste follows the nose and is sweet with just a hint of bitterness. Body is medium and somewhat chewy. This is not what I expected from the style and is definitely more slanted towards the east coast/English style. If I didnít know any better I would think this was a barleywine. This is a below average DIPA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
4 pack on clearance from Jungle Jimís eastgate. Saranac High Peaks Imperial IPA is a hazy honey golden beer with a thin persistent head of tiny white bubbles. Nose is a mild musty hop with a hint of sweet malts. Taste is initally a bit underwhelming. A little sharp hops, malty earthiness and a bit of subtle sweet malt. Body somewhat flat and fluid. Finish is just a bit bitter. a bit of a disappointing beer.
