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.
Tap at brewery. Pours slightly hazy amber. Aroma and flavor are grassy and grapefruit hops, light toast, and faint caramel notes with a dry bitter finish. Medium body. snoworsummer (6285) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2017

Draught @ Draught 55. Clear golden yellow with small off-white foamy head, faint citrus atoma, medium carbonation, medium bitter piney taste, thin body, medium finish. Decent IPA. Jow (4170) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Tap at Albany River Rats game. Amber pour. Nose is faintbpiney hops and caramel. Tastes of caramel, earth, grains, some pine. Thin plastic aftertaste. Nothing much to this. BREWMUSKCLES (2759) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2016
it lingers from an unimpressive taste too full of malt syrup and seemingly light on the hop. still that lingering harshness in the finish is noteworthy. a butterscotch and hop harshness not found well in the flavor. would score higher if categorized as an apa.

On tap at Cate’s (Bolton Landing). Mild fruity fresh hop aroma, sweet and little beany. Golden amber clear with thin head. Medium body and carbonation. Moderate malty-sweet and hoppy IPA, but no outstanding good or bad qualities. Pleasant, drinkable IPA. floydslip (428) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Amber beer with a medium light tan head. Nose of light citrus, soap, and perfume. Flavor has some citrus flavors, but they are obscured by a waxy, rather unpleasant aftertaste that eventually gives way to a medium bitterness, but the odd flavor lingers. Not good. climberbob (497) - Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Beer club bottle into tulip. Amber w decent head. Floral pine aroma. Surprisingly mild and balanced hop / malt profile for an American IPA - I don't normally like IPA so this is good from my perspective. Resinous hop comes through on the palate but not crazy bitter. Decent for an IPA.

definitely full bodied like the bottle states. very hoppy and bitter with a sweet malty finihs. nose of of earth and grains. had out of a 12 oz bottle at home. pours a deep copper color with a thin lacey cream head. Foxbush (2142) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 20, 2015
12 oz bottle One the beers that come each month from AOPD. The ale poured a clear light amber with 1/2 inch off-white head and lacing. Floral hops and pale malts greet you. el malt with good c-hops, herbal, clove field, quite nice. The taste is a classic hopped up IPA with citrus and pine resin on the tongue. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. Bitterness impacts the tongue a bit at the end, but contributes to a long dry conclusion.
