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!

Appearance of diluted honey. A bit of an off wheaty taste. Quite bitter and dry. Not in love with this one.

Profumo fresco e fruttato, si distinguono nettamente tutte le caratteristiche del luppolo. Resta profumata anche in bocca e dissetante. I 6 gradi alcolici non di avvertono.

Transfer from BA rated on 2-1-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a very thick and hazy light orange color. The particulates keep light from penetrating. Has the look of a pulp laden orange juice, but only with a lighter orange-yellow color. When poured it had a billowy white head, which faded over time, to give a fair amount of lacing; leaves a fine film on the top of the brew. Smell – The nose is heavy of lemon and orange up front. A nice citrus hop aroma blended in with a very light wheaty and yeasty like aroma. The smallest amount of pine hoppiness is persistent throughout, but very low in comparison to the others. Taste – The taste is much of a Belgian wit although there is more bitter and sour citrus mixed in with some wheaty maltiness as the backbone. The hoppiness of the aroma is stronger than it is in the taste, leaving some disappointment in “IPA” portion o f the brew. Some pine hoppiness does come in toward the end along with some coriander. Mouthfeel – Creamier then comparable IPA of similar strength, with slightly lower carbonation level. Overall it does have a gives comfortable and soothing feel on the tongue. Overall – An interesting beer, although I think too much Belgian wit and not enough IPA. A bit more spicy and piney hoppiness and a little less lemon would be more for me.

Bottle - A white IPA with spices but I don't taste the spices I normally would on a Belgium white. Unfiltered beer so there is a lot if sentiment. Can't tell if this is from the yeast or the slices, could be a combination of the two. More of a hops flavor than I was expecting, citrus notes on the pallet.

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

BLADT (451) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 25, 2014
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.
