Saranac Wet Hop IPA is a specially brewed beer made with locally grown New York State Heirloom and Cascade hops. These hops were hand picked by friends of Saranac to create this one of a kind, delicious Double IPA. Brewed less than 24 hours after picking, you’ll notice the distinct hop freshness and citrusy herbal flavor. Your taste buds will stand up and take notice!

bhensonb (14178) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bomber from HalfTime. Pours light golden/orange amber with a transient white head. Aroma of light citrus and some herb/veg. Med body. Flavor is rather herbal with some background citrus. It’s a good hoppy beer, but at 7% I don’t think it qualifies as imperial/double. Finishes dry and pretty bitter.

j12601 (9581) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle at a tasting at Matt’s place. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet caramel and graininess on the nose, soft sweet toast, a bit of dusty hops. Grainy, sweet with some caramel and some light earthy hops. Moves into a long bitterness. As with most Saranac beers, this is not terrible.

jredmond (7685) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Draft at Pony Bar HK with Linh and Vi. Pours an amber body with white lacing. Aroma is plain - maybe some muted malts, lots of caramel, and grainy lager notes. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of grain, somehwat offensive. Not an IPA, no where near a double IPA. Awful.

Iphonephan (6274) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
From a 22 oz bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head that recedes leaving lots of lacing. Feint hop aroma. Flavors of resiny pine and grass. Not the best combo of hop flavors. Bitter finish.
