COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hop loverís delight! In the India pale ale tradition, this brew is very hoppy in both aroma and flavor from the generous amounts of Cascade hops used in brewing. Look for a medium to full body and golden straw color.

A good India Pale ale. Strong but not too strong on the hops. Good flavor. Good look in the glass. Nice hoppy aroma. A decent beer and a decent IPA, but not a great one.

A very mild but pleasant aroma - great head retention - frothy. Beautiful golden honey color with moderate carbonation. Hopped with slightly bitter aftertaste. The taste definitely became more tart and vibrant as it warmed up just a little. Iíve had hoppier IPAs but this was pretty good.

working my way through the saranac sample pack. this one has a very slight haze, itís the yellow-orange color of dried corn, pantone 138, with a tight cap of off- white suds. peanuts, parchment and prairie grass in the aroma, (if one can imagine that), itís really all about cascade hops. flavor is edgy, hoppy, only slightly more captivating than a ífriendsí rerun. itís not very complex. neither is my dog, but sheís just fine.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 14, 2002
One of the best of Saranacís ípseudo-dankí beers. Extremely bitter, but like itís pale ale cousin, not enough behind the bitterness.Not enough floral hops or malty chewiness

Not very hoppy, fair malt profile. Decent.

Slightly above average - but more astringent than hoppy. Better IPAís are out there.

Very bitter but not extraordinarly hoppy. OK body, hoppy aroma. Good IPA although not as good as Victory Hop Devil.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 25, 2001
Didnít get a lot on the nose; slight floral scent; color a nice amber with Saranacís typical creamy, abover-average head. Flavor just ok; really not very hoppy for an IPA, and the finish is rather bland. Really more like an Amber ale. Most Saranacs seem on the sweetish side; this is a bit less so. Very average.
