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.

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.

BrunoSanchez (189) - Fermo, ITALY - MAY 13, 2015
IPA americana dal colore dorato con schiuma bianca. Al naso resinosa ed agrumata. In bocca bilanciata verso l’amaro del luppolo. Corpo medio e sapore di resina di pino un po troppo invadente che innalza la sensazione alcolica rendendo questa ale poco beverina. Finale persistente e secco.

Old rating. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but it was horrible. Flat. Too much caramel and just barely there hops. Somewhat cardboardy.

phaleslu (7670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle from a buddy last night - thanks, Steve! Pours a clear orange with a fairly big white head. Malt-leaning IPA- caramel and sweet and pale malts atop minor citrus and pine Cascade hop bitterness. A little resin, a bit of grass and straw, but mostly malts lead the way here. Light-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel that finishes dry. Not much to it. So-so.

The beasters of IPA. If I’m going camping or there’s a summer event and this is one of few options nearby I’ll pick it up. Very drinkable and twelve packs are priced nice. A good session IPA before session IPA became marketing by higher end breweries. Really at 5.8 this is at least balanced and that’s as low as an IPA should go.

pretty one dimensional ipa. i liked the cascade hop aroma, but the flavor was average at best...a little too tame for the style with not a whole lot going on."

Bottle from Kroger from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor had floral hops, grainy malt, light caramel, light citrus, the hops seemed old and nothing really popped. Boring, overproduced ipa.

12oz can from Saranac sampler 12 pack. Piney hops flavor and a bitter finish to it.

It pours a nice golden amber with a thin white head that leaves good lacing on the glass, but the hops are the main focus here. The aroma of hops fills the nose with a floral, piney and resiny bouquet. The palate is medium bodied with an earthy malt character that is subdued by the by the fairly strong but not overpowering hops. Hop notes on the tongue are piney, citrusy and a little bit floral. Saranacs IPA has a pleasant hop bitterness from start to finish and is very refreshing and easy to drink.
