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.

Part of an assorted sixer called an Adirondack Trail Mix. Popping the top this brew has a citrusy and piney hop smell. Pours into a handy glass to a cloudy faded yellow with an off white head that disappears quickly. On the taste this brew has a bold sourness upfront, then gets a little spiced malt sweetness followed by a bitterness of the hopping that then fades into the finish. Kind of a unique flavor. Odd indeed.

used to like this better. still pretty clean tasting but too dry. the hops aren't there like I remember, its too perfumey. still, a clean drink and I can go through a sixer and not mind getting it again. in fact, all Saranac beers have agreed well with me, just not always blowing my mind with flavor
