Bottle purchased as part of Wegmans mix a six pack.
Pours out a golden amber, with a one inch head, and some good long lasting lacing down the glass.
Smells very piney. I can tell this will be bitter.
Astringently bitter and piney. Some bitter orange and grapefruit peel provide some citrus flavors, but the dominant flavor is astringent, hard to swallow bitterness. A bit of a boozy sting, as well. The hops seem muddled and just thrown together for the hell of it- just to make a super hoppy bitter IPA. Not a whole lot of skill involved. There is a lot of very sweet malt flavor near the end.
Medium bodied, sticky and sweet mouthfeel. High carbonation.
A miss from Saranac, as per usual.
