Saranac White IPA from Matt Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's got a 3 finger thick head

I smell more of a neutral wheat-like brew kind of scent rather than IPA-like grapefruit or citrus.

Tastes like a dash of grapefruit, actually. The rest is reminds me of witbier. Good job fusing the two!

Mouthfeel is light and airy. Smooth all around.

Overall, a 3.75 for Saranac White IPA from Matt Brewing Company. I think they did a pretty good job with this fusion style of brew. Its not outRAGEOUSLY awesome,but I like it all the same. I'll probably pick this up again.

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.
