Semi-transparent gold with a tight white head, decent retention and lacing. Slight citrus aroma on pour followed by floral hops. Taste is a typical east coast IPA, balanced malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Nice nutty taste from the malts, reminiscent of almonds and brazil nuts.

Mouthfeel is heavier than I would like, but not too heavy. Aftertaste is bitter nuts. Not bad, not sure if I'd seek it out as there better options.

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!
