3.7/5  rDev -2.4%

In contrast to others, I think this gets better as it warms and as it goes. By the end of my first glass, I wanted another.

A: 4.25 - because it has a very tight, cotton candy, lacey head over a very light colored, hazed straw golden body.
S: 3.5 - Too faint. Light aromas of biscuit malts underneath grapefruit/pineapple hops.
T: 3.5 - Starts with light, bright biscuit malts with a bit of caramel sweetness. Followed by predominantly tropical, pineapple hops, a bit of sun warmed hay, and a long, slightly watery, but otherwise pleasing finish.
MF: 3.7 Enough weight and pleasing feel to invite another.

Saranac's best?

Bottle from Lake Placid.

A - Pours a nice light-ish golden colour with a bit of haze and a good amount of carbonation. Two fingers of thick, soapy white head on top. Quite nice lacing and a finger of retention.

S - Citrus, weed, grass.

T - Nice fruit character, some metallic notes, dusty, stone fruit, peach, some maltiness.

M - Good carbonation, medium body and a decent bitterness.

O/D - This is OK. Sorta mild and doesn't really jump at you with hop flavour. Decent but not worth a revisit.

Slightly cloudy light amber pour with a white head that dissapates quickly. Malty sweet with a medium hop finish that does not assault the palate. A very enjoyable beer. Considering I prefer malty low IBV dark beers, this IPA was very enjoyable.

12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Fruity, citrus, grassy, caramel, and toasted malts.

Taste: You get citrus and herbal flavors with the caramel and toasted malts in the rear. Nice mild bitterness in the rear too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to light bodied, mild bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: A decent IPA at best. Got better as it warmed, but was still in search of hops.

this is a pretty solid ipa, lot of floral and spice notes, definitely a grapefruit note on the palate, a little sour grape, bitter clean finish

For not being an IPA person I ended up loving this brew. With 60 IBU's this is not so bitter. I prefer this brew more chilled then other beers from Saranac.
