COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Red IPA is a twist on a traditional West Coast IPA featuring a deep red color from European dark caramel malts. We brew with generous amounts of American hops including Calypso, Palisade and Chinook to give this IPA a distinctive hop aroma. You’ll notice a strong hoppy flavor with caramel malt undertones and a unique color that gives this IPA a whole new personality.

I get sick of the people who write in and criticize any Saranac or Dundee beers. Two NY Brewers that have made good brews for years. Just about everything they make is Very Good , Easily drinkable product that is reasonably priced. Could they take more chances with what they are making? Of Course, but is what we are drinking from them worthy of the criticizm? I hardly think so. Are all of you that sophisticated? I HARDLY THINK SO.

brown brew with a banded and foamy head of off white and light brown. mouthfeel of a Scotch ale with a bit of malt and scratchy burnt peat. Some nice hoppy flavor of white and red grape a bit of ivy and a fresh pine finish. stages well through the senses like a good ale should.

A unique red IPA from Saranac. Good sweet reddish notes and a good hopfeel. Nice balance! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice dark red/brown beer with a decent sized head. Taste is okay. Need a bit more of hops. Really good quality-price ratio. This cost 1,69 dollars at Good Bear in East Village, NYC.

This tastes like an attempt to blend an IPA with a Guinness. And it works! Smooth caramel taste going down. With a nice hoppy aftertaste and a nice deep red color. Surprisingly good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear coppery red with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel, malt, and a bit of citrus. The flavor follows suit with light caramel and mild malt followed by some light citrus hops bitterness. A bit timid for an IPA, but not a bad beer.

Bottle purchased in Ellicottville, NY. Pours an attractive amber red. Some lacing. Mild hoppy aroma. Bitterness on the tongue. Nice long semi-bitter finish. Nice hybrid and well done. I like this brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle poured a dark amber color with a small amount of head. Bitter malty hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.
