COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saranac White IPA is a tasty innovative twist on a traditional IPA. We’ve taken a delicious American IPA bursting with Citra hops, and given it a whole new direction by adding the refreshing fruitiness of orange peel & coriander and the softening characters of wheat malt and oats. You’ll notice the complex hop flavor you’ve come to expect in an IPA, balanced with the extraordinary bright flavor of a wheat beer. Cheers to twisting tradition!

12 oz bottle. This was tasted at the Provisions Company in Holden Beach while on vacation. The IPA went well with the shrimp and crab cakes. The ale poured a pale hazy light yellow. The floral aroma of spices and coriander greets your nose. The wheat malt affected the color and taste. Wheat malts are not my favorite. The IPA lacked some of the classic bitterness of typical IPAs. The carbonation was average. The ale finished smoothly with no bitterness.

Murky gold pour, looks like apple cider. The blend of a traditional IPA with a wheat beer makes a good combo.

strongpieman (1648) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle. Very cloudy yellow with a foamy head. Interesting hop aroma with some spices. Medium body, plenty of carbonation. Interesting twist on an Ipa.

The aroma is light citrus, lemon, wheat, grain. The appearance is cloudy yellow/orange, white head. The flavor is citrus, pine, pepper, grainy. The finish is peppery, citrus. Medium in body, a little thick, creamy. Not bad at all.

jcos (1784) - Maryland, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Location/Date: Bottle on June 24th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a gold cloud like a hefeweizen.
Aroma: Aroma of wheaty malt, faint pine, some citrus.
Taste: Sweet like a hefeweisen, some orange peel and coriander, a light-medium amount of piney bitterness.
Palate:Medium light body, lingering aftertaste.

Summary: Perhaps this will be a new style one day, as it’s not really an IPA, like the black IPA isn’t a traditional IPA. Then again, I have already enjoyed the Brookyln/Schneider Hopfenweisen...a good beer, just wish the hops were a little bit more aggressive in the mix.

12oz into a pint. Pours a cloudy yellow/orange haze. Head is full and large then simmers to a solid ring with islands. Aroma is sour citurs, pine, and musky soil. Love the sediment floating around. Taste is plesantly hoppy, fresh citrus, pine, and orange peel. A nice slow sipper in the summer. One of my favorites from Saranac.

unclemike (2895) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Pours a very hazy golden-orange color with a moderately sized white head that leaves pretty good lacing. Aroma has a lot of citrus character, but also has a hairspray characteristic. Taste is mainly a mild fruity citrus with a small butterscotch finish. Overall it is very citrusy but only mildly bitter. A decent beer, especially for Saranac

DocLock (9982) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours hazy gold with off-white head. Nose was hopcitrus, Citra hops, and the flavor was crisp, medium compexity, with that nice up front citra hop flavor, ample malts, and a smooth finish. Some minor chalkiness late, but overall I could session this any day of the week.

Hazy light orange with a great lacing head. Aroma is fresh hops and sweet fruit. Flavor is a great blend of fresh hops and sweet fruity malt. This was a pleasant surprise during my stay in Vermont. A very nice beer.
