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!

boFNjackson (4099) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle... Poured cloudy pale yellow with a lacy white head. Nose had floral hop notes with wheated malt notes and citrus notes. Bitter orange skin with vanilla, wheat, and a hoppy bitteness. Floral, earthy, spicy hops. Not terrible which is what I was expecting.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy dark golden color with a small head. Definitely some citrus and spices in the nose, along with some slight hoppiness. Taste has a bit of bitterness in there, but the spices make it feel a little cloudy.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle from CBB. Orange-golden, cloudy, tall fine head. Very fruity, citrus nose with some spice. Sweet orange, lemon, Citra, coriander, wheat. Smooth and nice fruit. Orange peel and spice take over in the mouth. Tastes way too juice-like. Malts are kind of cardboard, finish very bitter, even astringent. Starts off decently but it is a bit rough. Still, smooth and decent even though the additives seem overdone.

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2013
12oz bottle shared with Headbanger, poured into a Shaker at 41°. Color is a hazy yellow light carbonation and a thin tight head. Aroma is big citrus with back tones of grass and hay. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is citrus with a lemon rind up front then some hop spice and bitterness. After taste is more bitterness and pepper giving it a slightly dry feel. Overall it seems to hit what it what they clam it is, some of the hop aspects of an IPA and the spice of a White. This is just not something I want in a beer.

12oz bottle 1/16/13 (Courtesy or RSRIZZO)-41° in Shaker-Pours a cloudy yellowish golden with a white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, malt, grains, and grass. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is not bad but is not what I was expecting.
