Poured from the 330mL bottle into a pint glass.

The beer is a bright gold with just a slight hint of orange in there. A Bit hazy but with plenty of carbonation visible. Head is pure white, creamy, and sticks around for a really long time, just becoming slightly fizzier over time.

S: Overwhelmingly citrus. Orange peel especially, with hints of lemon and grapefruit in there as well. Some balancing bready malt in the back, but overall this is alike a big lemon tart or lemon cake. Actually pretty refreshing.

T: Starts off slightly sweet with a nice balance, but then takes a more hoppy turn. Finishes slightly bitter and drying with lots of citrus peel character.

Overal this beer is OK. Not something I'd actively seek out again but not something I'd be disappointed in seeing again either.

Saranac White IPA brewed by Matt Brewing Company with an ABV of 6.0% This brew pours out a cloudy amber color with a small white head. This is an unfiltered brew you can not see thought it. The small is rich with wheat, sweetness, hops and other gains. There is nothing overpowering in smell of this brew. The taste is bitter but smooth. The bitterness is not overpowering in this brew, it is a nice touch. You pick up on some citrus brew but not much. The mouthfeel is an clean. Saranac White IPA has a nice balance to it. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5. I would buy this brew again.
