Saranac White IPA - Creamy head. Good lacing. Deep misty yellow color. Heffenweizen like in appearance. Pine and citrus odors. Lemon and coriander. Clean nose. Crisp notes of spice and citrus. Mid-taste breaks into hard notes of pine and bitters. Fades into final roll of creamy malt undertones highlighted by lemons and oranges. Sour and spice lingers. Creamsicle after taste. Wafting more piney hops and minor alcohol tinge. Smooth mouth feel. Fairly drinkable. Flower notes may be an issue with aggressive session. Sipped slowly and respectfully, this is not an issue. Meant for a "slow drive through the country on a hot day" not for a drag race. Very good. If you're a hops head you'll like this fusion of Heffenweizen, Blonde Ale, and IPA. Each quality is there and well balanced. Good experiment. 3.56 out of 5.

Part of an assorted sixer called an Adirondack Trail Mix. Popping the top this brew has a citrusy and piney hop smell. Pours into a handy glass to a cloudy faded yellow with an off white head that disappears quickly. On the taste this brew has a bold sourness upfront, then gets a little spiced malt sweetness followed by a bitterness of the hopping that then fades into the finish. Kind of a unique flavor. Odd indeed.

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
