16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a dim, clouded, golden-orange body with a half-inch of white head. Good lacing.
Smell: Pithy lemon overneath scantly bready wheatiness, low resins, low spices. A bit of a modest aroma overall.
Taste: Soft white wheat, a slight graininess and a nibble of brioche. Lightly sweet. Resins, lemon and a pithy quality. Small pinch of spice. Medium bitterness. Drying, pith-rimmed finish with a hint of lemon juice moistened bread. Some bitterness lingering.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It's okay, like many Saranac beers (the better ones at least) it just falls a bit short.
Serving type: on-tap

used to like this better. still pretty clean tasting but too dry. the hops aren't there like I remember, its too perfumey. still, a clean drink and I can go through a sixer and not mind getting it again. in fact, all Saranac beers have agreed well with me, just not always blowing my mind with flavor

Poured a golden stray hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of white head. Very good uneven lacing on the sides. Great retention on the top of the glass.
Smelled floral hops, caramel malts, Belgian spices, citrus hops, lime and slight pine.
Tasted floral hops, citrus hops, lime, pine, caramel, tropical notes, Belgian spices and Mountain Dew.
Light body. Oily texture. Above average carbonation. Long, citrus finish.
A very nice IPA. I really liked this one.
