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!

Pours an hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Faint aroma of citrus and hops. Taste is wheat,sweet malts,some citrus,hop bitterness.

Contrary to most others reviews I read, I don't really like this beer. Looks like a conventional wit (great) but does not have the sweetness, and misses the body of a true IPA. It's drinkable just a strange halfway house of a beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour. Hazy peach color. Large perfume of apricots, lemon and cloves. Sweetish smelling, almost. Taste fruity, with some citrus hop bitterness and very distant spice. Like others from this brewery, high carbonation. A bit too sweet for my liking.

A great blend of the sweet refreshing white ale with the full bodied hoppiness of an IPA. So many IPA’s are so hoppy that thet are difficult to drink. The wheat malt really soften it.medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, medium body, soft carbonation, pale, hazy, white foam,

Ipa veramente gustosa, con una luppolatura intensa e agrumata, con note di lievito e una percepibile sfumatura citrica. Ottima.

Bottle (in Sept 2012) - Cloudy Orangey gold in colour. Sedimented; wheat. Fruity; orange citrus and some grapefruit. Spicy. Malty; wheaty and bready malts. Hoppy; resiny hops. Sweet wheaty malts and fruit balanced by hop bitterness. Refreshing. Interesting beer. Witbier meets IPA. Decent.

Pours a hazey gold. Smells of wheat , hops and orange peel . Flavor is more leaning towards the citrus side with a touch of hops. This would be a fine summer brew. It’s early spring with 70s in VA, and I find this beer delightful. Cheers!
