This is a cloudy, blonde-muddy brew. It has a thin, quickly disappearing head. The brew is average looking, at best. Light brown at the edges, with yellow fringes. The smell is spicy...with citrus peel. For an 'IPA'', the beer has a very subtle hop scent. The taste is equally unremarkable. Spritzy, balanced, and a bit hoppy, with a moderate bitterness. Medium in body.

A-Super murky, this honestly looked like orange juice. I don't think i've ever seen an IPA this color and quite so murky. Love it just based on uniqueness.

S- Lot of zestry citrus smell coming from this one, a lot of grassy, hoppy smell following it up.

T- A lot of orange/grapefruit citrus right away that transitioned into a not too bitter grassy, veggie taste. Really had a nice zing to the citrus notes and was sweeter than i had thought it would be.

M- This was just TOO MUCH for me with how murky and heavy this was in my mouth. I don't mind when beer is on the thicker side but this was just way too much, it was like a meal and a half.

O- I didn't particularly love this, the mouthfeel was just too much to overcome for me. Too thick and the great flavor couldn't save it for me. I wish the citrus held on throughout and didn't drop out towards the end. Okay Saranac brew.

In a pint glass this beer was a hazy orange color with a thick white head. There was a fair amount of lace.

Pleasant aroma: citrus/orange and spice.

Taste not so pleasant. Orange taste, but very bitter. It's like they used both the orange peel and the pith. Coriander taste, which exacerbated the bitterness.

Way too bitter and unpleasant for me.
