2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent sized frothy white head of fine bubbles. Reduces to a rocky top with light carbonation. Very light and airy aroma with some lemon, oranges, cereal grains and some cooked vegetable aromas. Color is a cloudy gold. Flavor is bitter up front then mellows out a bit to spicy hops. More lemon, straw, yeast and some herbal hops. Chalky mouthfeel from the yeast and wheat. Finishes bitter and lemony. An ok IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Date tasted: June 14, 2013... Glassware: Chimay chalice... Occasion: Celebrating Will’s second violin recital, a successful "Come Little Children"... Appearance: fuzzy peach body allows a splotchy off-white head-unfiltered... Aroma: crisp, peachy citrus--coriander, grapefruit prevail--a nice overall sentiment.. Palate: light and refreshing with a tingle of substance--so light for an IPA--and little aftertaste... Taste: a mixture of flowers--soft hops really allow for a smooth, pilsner-like crispness... Overall: this beer presents an odd problem--it tastes so little like any other Saranac I’ve had, and that is saying something. The difference is not only noticeable but welcome! A refreshing and palpable spring/summer sipper--more of what I wish the Sam Adams summer/white ale offered....

Bready aroma with only a whisper of hops. Pours a hazy amber, with a thin white head. The orange, coriander, and wheat come through, with just a little bitterness in the finish. This comes across more of an American Wheat then a White IPA.

Mix of Belgium spices and hops. Not bad. I like this style a lot. Hop flavor a little too much like strait from the pellet.

Hmm, pretty much what it seems. Has some nice wheat flavors up front and than finishes fairly dry and IPA like. Somehow it kind of works. Has a wheat look - straw pour with barely a white head and not much lacing. Aroma is an equal balance of hops and orange notes. Interesting if anything!

6th October 2012
Hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Fine particulate floaters! Light nose of apricot and pineapple. Palate is slightly soft with mild fine carbonation. Dry seltzer minerals. Traces of pineapple cube sweets and citrus. Mild creamy malt underneath. Semi dry finish with a touch of yellow graqpefruit. It’s fine but there are better white IPAs out there!

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Very frothy at first pour, cloudy muted gold. Smells great: citrusy with a little bit of soap. Hoppy, but not too bitter, and lots of lemon and coriander. Light wheat finish. Very drinkable.

Pours a hazy orange-gold with a medium-sized head. Tangy, with just the right amount of bitterness. Some citrus notes.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours cloudy golden; small white head but with lots of lacing. citrus fruits on the nose are predominant but you’ll also get some spices and some grain. Taste starts bitter and sour, lots of citrus notes, spicy and balanced with grain. Interesting beer worth trying.

Pours very cloudy orange with large while head. Very bitter and sour when first on the palate, and in a good way. Nose is all citrus. Notes of citrus, sour something-or-other, bread and, strangely enough, asparagus (!). Tasty, different beer. Might be the best thing Saranac has offered yet.
