COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hop lover’s 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.

troysworktable (109) - Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2008
12 ounce bottle. One of six beers in the Saranac Sampler Adirondack Trail Mix six-pack. Drunk in Arlington, Virginia. Saranac IPA pours clear orange and brilliant with a very light ivory head. The primary aromas are strong of both apple and orange. The primary flavors are bitter orange and light caramel. The body is medium. This is a good solid IPA.

Beerhunter111 (5438) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein oranges Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig, hopfig fruchtig, bitter. Geschmack intensiv fruchtig hopfig, stark malzig.

Guerde (1148) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2014
(bottle from UDBeernut for Krampus) Pours a semi-hazy orange/copper color with a very thin white head that leaves a thin film. Aroma is mildly hoppy, with some orange, maybe pine, caramel, and an off smell that I can’t quite place. Maybe dill? Taste is kind of a biscuit-caramel sweetness mixed with a minerally flavor and light hits of orange and bitter hops. Not really much else there. It’s not offensive, but it’s not really much of anything. Overall a middling IPA.

Atom (1212) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2014
12oz bottle via BoostIPA for Krampus pours a clear copper/orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is very muted faded caramel malt and regurgitated hop spice. Very mild light taste of non distinct hop spice same goes for the malt profile. IPA Light? Not much as far a flavor, might be sessionable on a hot day, certainly not offensive.

Coltreppe (5) - potenza, ITALY - JAN 15, 2014 does not count
Not one of the best American IPA in circulation, good color and the foam is washed out but then the taste without persistence and notes with palatati monotonous and unpleasant

nittanytide (225) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Poured deep gold, with a thin white head. Faint floral aroma. Watery mouth feel. Taste is mostly grass, but somewhat lacking.

Tstamba (212) - Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2013
From a bottle, no date. Clear light amber white rapidly dissipating white head. Funky smell... Not much hop action, unbalanced, funny aftertaste... May be past it’s prime? Meh... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boxofrane (1872) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours clear amber with a small white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is all caramel and citrus.. no hop profile at all. The taste is dry, medium bitter, unbalanced, and unenjoyable.

Smells a bit of citrus. Preferred by its taste. Some wheat? Good IPA for the price point ($8.99 box of 6) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
