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 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.

A heavy aroma of orange with a hint of apricot and other spices. The appearance is cloud with a medium bodied head. Strong orange taste with other spices and a tangy after taste.

jmcgavin12 (482) - Madison, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours cloudy tan with frothy head. Lots of orange on the nose with a bit spicy notes. The taste is very well balanced between bitter and sweet and overall makes for a delicious beer!

Emeister84 (867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Aromas of citrus fruits and apricots, with subtle wild flowers. Hazy yellow-orange with a fairly lasting, rocky, white head. Dry and bitter with apricot and spicy, herbal flavors. Light bodied with snappy, crisp carbonation, very clean and refreshing, and finishes very abruptly leaving behind faint, fruity hops.

12 oz bottle as a gift from my neighbor Michelle. Very nice citrus flavors abound nestled with plenty of freshness. Really impressive effort from Saranac.

Pours a hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is full of citrus. Flavor is full and spicy with lots of citrus notes. Bitter, bright hoppiness. This is very good.

Very cloudy appearance in a tall glass, drank at a Buffalo Wild Wings with lunch. Looks like a white beer, with mild IPA aroma. Solid IPA, have had worse and better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

White one-finger head. Cloudy off-amber body. Aroma is sweet wheat with a touch of citrus and an abundant scent banana. Like the scent, banana is the focal taste. I'm picking up slight bitterness. The palate is also bitter banana. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
