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 poured into snifter. Pours a cloudy pale orange color. Aromas of citrus and wheat. Tastes like a hopped up wheat beer. Would be nice in warmer weather. Good hop bitterness to match the aroma. Coriander reminiscent of a belgian white. Nice beer.

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.

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!

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Bottle into pint glass at Bonefish Grill. Cloudy orang’ish-yellow color with white head. Aroma of wheat, bread, slight spices and some citrus notes. Taste brings out more IPA fruity hop bitterness, coriander and slight pepper. Light body, moderate carbonation, creamy, soft, crisp with dry crisp finish. Pretty much a wheat beer with spices and more hops. Interesting and easy drinking.

12oz. bottle poured into a glass Appearance: Golden yellowish-orange, Cloudy (its unfiltered) with just about a 2 finger white head. Leaves good lacing. Smell: You get the citrus hops, lemon, orange peel, spices, and some wheat. Taste: More of the orange in the flavor, then a bit of wheat, with the citrus hops to finish. A bit sweet up front with a bitter finish. The spices help dull out the hop bite makes for a fairly refreshing flavor I truly was surprised. Mouthfeel: fairly smooth Medium body with Medium carbonation. Citrus flavors linger in the finish. Overall: Very good beer. I enjoyed it way more than I thought. Its nice to be surprised in a good way. Perfect for Spring/Summer!
