Has a small white head atop an absolutely transparent amber. The aroma is very hoppy. Pine and citrus dominate the smell here. The hops are crushingly bitter with not only citrus and pine, but a few herbal and grassy notes in between. It has a soft, oily texture and leaves the tongue a bit chalky feeling and exhausted.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
