From the commercial 32 oz. growler. Sampled on January 14, 2015.

Yellow pour under a huge, fluffy off-white head that leaves significant lacing clinging to the glass.

The aroma is of grass and forest with a muted malt sensation and the slightest hint of orange or tangerine.

Light to medium body.

The taste begins with a basic toasted biscuit malt note with the grassy hops taking over swiftly and leaving a slightly bitter finale. But it drinks easily.

12 oz bottle from the winter sampler served in a tall glass. Very good, very drinkable with that distinct hop finish.

An odd IPA. To my taste, the batches aren't consistent. I have thoroughly enjoyed this as a draft. As a canned product, I swirl it around in my mouth and debate what's missing. Because of that, I've learned to pass by it on the shelf. I live near the Matt's brewery and so want to support the Saranac line... this leaves me wanting something more. Keep trying guys. I'm rooting for you!

12 oz.

Pours a clear crisp gold, white lacing retains indefinitely.

Smells of light grassy malt and a hint of citrus.

Flavor is of grassy and bready malts, light, with some grassy hop bitterness that is very subdued.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

An average pale ale, not very hoppy by today's IPA standards, but as a throw-back to a century old recipe, I'll accept it as such. That aside, kind of forgettable. Nothing really wrong with it, just not interesting.
