COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weíve created an easy to drink crisp, hoppy ale that is truly pale in color without sacrificing the hop character you expect in an IPA. To make a delicious "sessionable" beer, we selected citrusy centennial hops and an experimental variety from the Northwest U.S.. Look for this unique hop character balanced by the backgroudn nuttiness of Maris Otter malt. Not too filling, not overbearing-just laid back and drinkable!

Drank from the bottle. Aroma is of a macrobrew. No hops to speak of. This tastes like a miller high life. I canít believe this is an ipa. One word: Pathetic

FROM NOTES: August 27, í12. From a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker pint glass. A: Floral hop notes and some citrus along with grainy malts. A: Pours a clear lightly carbonated gold with a one-finger puffy white head that sticks around for a few minutes. T: Follows the nose, with a slightly more pronounced grassy taste. P: Smooth, well carbonated, medium bodied. O: Super quaffable ale.

LowBrau (74) - Tonawanda, New York, USA - APR 27, 2013
Medium gold, thin white head. Subtly hoppy nose. First sip is fresh & bright, more tart than bitter. Light-bodied and easy drinking, it has a slightly creamy texture. Light citrus and nut aromas and a little coriander. Overall, it was pleasant.

Darwenus (547) - Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2013
Cloudy copper color with a brief head and a little lace. There just isnít any aroma to comment on. It has no smell. At least it doesnít stink, I guess. The flavor reminds me of a mixture of weak IPA, iced tea, and maybe a little cough syrup. I will avoid this beer from now on.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Super clean, light suspended dust. Nose is super grainy and vegetal. I honestly did not expect it to be this bad. Flavor is similar but you can actually taste a little bit of centennial hop and that signature saranac metallic yeast. Ugh.

A pretty delicious ipa, and easy to drink. A pretty golden amber color, and good lacing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dacrza (502) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Glassware: Yuengling pint...Occasion: still in the afterglow of the Christmas holiday...Appearance: thick, meteor-laden chunks in the pale white head; burnt orange body; head laces thickly as well-promising...Aroma: bright, punchy citrus-orange peel and lemon zest--a bit of soap dish affects the scent...Palate: begins medium-bodied; slightly obtrusive at the throat; foamy and soft at the teeth...Taste: oddly a combination of puckerish hops and troublesome aftertaste--not a beer to enjoy slowl--or often--due to this quirk...Overall: Not a session IPA after all, unless I ended up with a bad batch...not among Saranacís better offerings...

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Session IPA? Iíll be the judge of that, Matt. Poured from twelve ounce bottle from Saranac 12 Beers Of Summer variety pack bought at Sams Club. Light amber/gold hue, medium white head, light bittersweet aroma, light bittersweet flavor with sour undercurrent. The only session this would be suitable for would be with a bunch of guys under a bridge holding paper bags of their favorite cheap swill. Otherwise, avoid.

RABinCO (1206) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle. Dark. Overly malted. Taste is a slightly bitter amber ale. I guess itís easy to not sacrifice hop character when thereís none to begin with.
