1/25/2014: Olde Saratoga IPA... Floral-spice hoppiness with an ample bitterness; soft, assertive hold flavor using Noble-style hops (Fuggle?); spicy hop finish; nice maltiness without getting in the way; this beer is best described as an English-style IPA and I like it! 12 fl. oz. bottle (6.8% ABV) shared by Brian. Thank you! Rating #49 for this beer.

amber color; mild, citrus hop aroma; a lot of bready, caramel, malt flavor with some hoppiness; not nearly as citrusy or hoppy as a ":West Coast IPA" (as indicated on the label) should be

Pours dark orange with a medium off-white head. Smells is earthy, hints of pine. Taste is mild bitter, a lot like a pale ale. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Saratoga IPA finishes with a mild lingering bitterness.

Pretty good IPA. Nothing tremendously great about the taste but it’s a solid offering.

Bready malty ipa with a hoppy dry bitter finish. Some balance and full flavor. Ok ipa but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrusy nose and flavor. A good hop/malt balance with a toasty malt backbone. Lemony zest on the finish that doesn’t overstay its welcome. An above average IPA.

Bottle. Poured a honey color with medium head. Hoppy aroma of hop flowers and hop pellets. Medium bitterness. Caramel notes. Some malt backbone. Hop biscuit. Not too shabby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crazyvin (1859) - New York, USA - DEC 27, 2013
A nice amber body with a thick off white head that had good retention and nice lacing. Aroma had some nice caramel malts upfront. A nice presence of resinous hops and a mild touch of grapefruit. Flavor was slightly sweet from the malts and had a decent hop bitterness. It was not very assertive, but it was still a decent beer in terms of a hop profile. Finish was full and in my opinion needed to be a little dry. All in all a good beer.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a light tan head. Aroma of grapefruit and spicy hops. Taste is lightly malted with a distinct citrusy bitter finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
