Pours a clear golden color with a mild head. Nice rye taste with a medium hop flavor. A little on the average side. HighlanderOne (1344) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Poured from bottle. Malt and floral hop aroma. Lager gold color, thin white head. Flavors of pine hops, dry malt, spice, banana. Dry, refreshing feel, malt hop aftertaste. Honey flavor noticed as it warms. Good finish. Not a stellar IPA, but a decent brew. thechandler (593) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Pours a copper-orange. Aroma has a bit of hoppy spice. Not bad. Flavor is mostly hoppy, but not overwhelmingly so. Good IPA. williamstome (1902) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Pale clear brown, white head.
Bready malt aroma with light hopping.
Fresh crisp dry hop flavor. ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2010
One of my favorites in the Saranac variety pack. A nice IPA with a good floral aroma and a nice foamy head. The clarity was not to the standard that I would like to see for this brand, but overall a decent beer with a nice taste.

Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of rye, earthiness, spicy hops and pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, earthiness, spicy hops and light pine with a crisp dry lingering bitter rye finish. joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Pours a pale opaque copper with a very solid head and excellent lacing. Aroma of resin hops and a little bit musty. Taste is very dry and nicely hopped, with a dry bitter finish. Quite enjoyable and drinkable. JJAlexander (46) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 26, 2010

Not a fan. joebudzjoe (676) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle from a friend. Crisp and dry IPA with a hop flavor that tastes slightly burnt, perhaps from the rye malts. These malts augment a unique spice flavor. Not too heavy of a beer. Good session. shadey (2140) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 22, 2010
12oz bottle from a 2010 winter 12-pack. Bright crystal clear orange with a thin layer of white lace clinging to the glass. Aroma is lightly sweet with only a hint of spicy hops. Flavors are very dry and biting. The rye is apparent in the dryness... at least that is what I have come to expect (and enjoy) from beers made with rye. The spicy hop character is welcome in the winter months. I like it.
