3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Why is this beer getting shit on so hard?
This beer is actually pretty decent. Or at least the smell says it is. Pours a deep amber with a off white head that quickly fades into a ring. The aroma is where this beer really shines... Really nice pine aroma, some slight cat piss and a whole bucket of caramel. Pretty inviting. First sip reveals that old saranac house hop profile, just dialed up a few notches. Pretty decent, actually. Finishes long and bitter. Nice.

Mooi koperkleurig met kleine lichtbeige schuimkraag. Aroma van hop, kersen, caramel. Smaak is medium bitter, medium zoet. Lekker, maar veel te waterig en te weinig body.

Eh, decent balance of hops and malt. Earthy without being grassy or tea like. The bitterness sticks with you to long at the end.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Pours a light clear amber with an off white head. Soda like carbonation. Very slight malty aroma. Very little flavor whatsoever other than slight metallic notes. Very thin overall taste and palate. I think I am done with Saranac after this.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer pours a deep copper with red hugh. The head is thick and foamy and lingers. The nose is hoppy and caramel but not huge. It starts smooth and slowly finishes with slight hop finish. It is lighter than I expected but the finish lingers a bit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, shared by DanielCoor. Mostly clear red / orange color. Good thin off-white head. Solid spread of lace. Decent-looking, but the nose is less-promising. Light caramel malt, some odd vegetable aroma. Medium body. Light, softer, kind of smooth carbonation. More bitter taste. Spicy fruity hop aroma in the aftertaste. Light caramel malt, little toasty malt. More dry in the finish. Alright red ale / IPA hybrid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a bit of a red tinge to it and a moderate off-white head. Nose has some good hoppy and pine notes to it with a subtle malt undertone. Taste is a little bit bitter, but fairly well balanced. OK.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours slightly hazy red with off white head. Little bit of malty aroma, not much there though. Caramel malt backbone. A different hop flavor that I’m not used to. Not particularly bitter, a little grassy. Overall not a whole lot jumps out and me. I wouldn’t even call this an IPA, but it is not a bad beer. Just not finding much to love here.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Faint hop and musty malt aroma, really not an IPA sort of scent. Deep orange color, it really is almost red. Taste is bitter, but not as much as Matt’s new Dry Hop Lager, which I had earlier. More sweet malt than most standard strength IPA’s. What might be termed a copper ale by some brewers.
