Saranac White IPA is a tasty innovative twist on a traditional IPA. Weve 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. Youll notice the complex hop flavor youve come to expect in an IPA, balanced with the extraordinary bright flavor of a wheat beer. Cheers to twisting tradition!

heemer77 (5344) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2012
A cloudy dark hay colored body with a long lasting bright white head. An herbal nose with hints of citrus comes wafting up to my nostrils. There is also that vague soapy hint that I usually get in white ales with the mix of the spice and citrus. The taste is very soapy with grapefruit rinds. There is also a medicinal finish to this one. It tastes more like an amped up wit than a spiced IPA. Bleh. Another failed attempt at marrying a Belgian style with a pale ale. Almost drain pour bad for my tastes as the spicing just blows everything else out of the water and the hopping throws that even more out of balance. Imagine squeezing out a nasty dishrag into some orange juice and you have this beer.

Canned 355ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Murky orange coloured, medium sized white to off-white head, mild coriander in the nose. Watermelon, spices, touch of vegetables (cellery or even carrot maybe) and some yeast with discreet notes of coriander and lots of sediment in the glass. Pretty high carbonation as well.

Marko (5408) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 11, 2015
Can at Pivoteka Zagreb, shared with Hrabren and Jones. Hazy yellow body, creamy head. The aroma is pretty much melon or watermelon, sweet and subdued. Fruity taste, melon, peaches, apricot slightly candyish and mild, but fresh. Good but not great, not worth the price.

Questo produttore dellarea newyorkese ha una lunga storia alle spalle, nasce infatti nel 1888 e quasi 100 anni pi tardi crea il marchio Saranac sotto cui produce le sue birre. La birra si mostra dorato tendente allarancio, piuttosto torbida e con una schiuma sottile ma di decente persistenza. Gran quantit di lievito sospeso in questa bottiglia. Laroma vede dominare erbe, spezie e agrumi. Passando al sapore, si rimane subito colpiti dallassenza dellamaro intenso tipico delle IPA. Infatti questa birra, che vuole essere un esperimento di fusione tra lo stile IPA e quello delle birre di frumento (da cui il white del nome) ha un buon equilibrio al palato: malto di frumento, erbe, spezie come pepe e coriandolo, arancia, luppolo sono ben amalgamati e bilanciati, nessuno predomina, di qui direi di accostarla pi a un ibrido ale-white pi che una ipa-white. Risulta molto beverina e non stanca proprio per la mancanza di un gusto marcatamente amaro. Il corpo medio, come la carbonazione. Un esperimento direi ben riuscito, non eccezionale come risultato forse proprio perch manca un carattere molto deciso, ma anche un pregio in fondo.
