3.7/5  rDev -2.1%

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?

The pour held a beautiful golden color and a spicy, citrusy aroma. Very nice medium head that didn't seem to diminish quickly. The carbonation wasn't overwhelming but still noticeable - very nice mouthfeel.

The taste was slightly bitter and clean with a nice hoppy aftertaste. Definitely a nice, refreshing beer. One of my favorites from Saranac's '14 winter sampler (even though I wouldn't classify it as a wintery beer).

Pours clear, medium golden color. Small head dissipates quickly. Some lacing. Leafy aroma, notes of orang peel in the flavor. Moderate bitterness for an IPA. Hops are prominent and linger in the aftertaste. A very good brew!
