I live in Matt's country and support the Saranac line the best I can. I feel they've gotten to the point where they've expanded the product line too rapidly to develop the individual product. This to me resulted in a middle of the road tasting product that had so much more potential. The result was an IPA for the masses, which is good for the average consumer but could've been something special.

I have tried a number of Saranac brews. I can live with this one. Still has a little sediment in the bottle. Ok by me. A good beer when having more than one.
