Love this beer. One of my top five.

Very hoppy but has unique flavor to it. Best on tap or at least pour into a glass if you get the bottles. Hints or orange and coriander, with a refreshing zing. Leaves a decent lace, and basically smells like no other beer, almost piney. Saranac continues to impress me with their brewing ability.

Tired of people saying it's bitter, it's an IPA you're supposed to taste the hops. If you can't handle this one, then I probably don't trust your opinion about beer anyway.

Pours a clouded golden shade of yellow, with two fingers of white head. Head lasts a fair time and a bit of scant lacing. Very citrusy aroma, and the taste follows the nose. Like a lemon/grapefruit hefeweissen, with a nice hoppy bite. A remarkable, go to again beer!

Fantastic looking—bright orange and hazy, thick craggy white foam.

Smell is very inviting—orange, apricot, wheat, and yeast.

Really good mouthfeel on this—full, frothy, smooth, though not heavy by any means.

Taste is gooood! Superb balance between styles here. All the great attributes of each, working so harmoniously together. Starts off like a Belgian wheat, then the hops kick in and the IPA finishes it. Yet there’s a lingering spice on the tongue that’s coming from the witte end.

So happy I picked up a single of this because now I know to go back and buy a full six-pack. This is a fantastic wheat IPA. So full and rich on flavor. The only other beer that is similar to this and either rivals or bests it is Sam Adams’ Whitewater IPA. And I say that because they take the apricot flavor further which I like.

Living within 5 miles of the Matt brewery makes me giddy since every Saranac beer before the White IPA has been forgettable. Now they have something to make me dance with excitement!
The color is cloudy straw. The flavor is full of citrus and hops. The finish is slightly sweet and clean. I have had the draft as well as the bottle and would naturally have to give the edge to the draft but the bottle is awesome too. Don't pass this one up!
