Saranac tasting better lately. This one edges out their decent Pale Ale. A great take and one of the first on WIT IPA.
A: A hazy straw yellow with active visible carbonation offers a finger of creamy foamy white head that too quickly reduces to thin film covering the surface with a ring at the edges of the glass. Ample lacing. Lots of yeast left in bottle. the real deal.
S: Healthy dose of aromas of citrus/orange hops with lighter aromas of pale malts, spices, and orange peel. Welcoming, clean, not cloying. But that Saranac soapy ness in evidence.
T: Follows the smell with more pale malts and wheat upfront followed by citrus/orange hops. There are light flavors of spices and orange peel in the end game. Light amounts of bitterness which fades to a pleasant finish and feel. Good food beer. Flavor packed.
M:Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp. Long finish.
O: No nonsense, well made, would drink again.

Pours a cloudy/smokey off-white copper. Smells fruity. Taste is not overpowering. Overall I am gonna have to say its nothing special. Perhaps, its needs a little more bite for my taste. Its not an unpleasant beer but its nothing so memorable that it deserves any special praise either.

This is actually pretty decent for a Belgian IPA. Carries a lot of the trademark characteristics. The one detractor is the almost soil flavor to it. I can't quite say it's too earthy, because it's more like dirt really. But overall, it's consistent and pretty well done. A good one from Saranac.
