4.16/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Very hazy, almost opaque bright golden orange. Topped by a small eggshell white head. Decent retention. Spotty lacing.
Smells of orange juice, pineapple, apricot, vanilla, sugar cookie, green grape, orange zest.
Tastes of peach, pineapple, mango, and candied orange. A bit overly-sweet, but I think this is a bit old. Creamy, doughy malt, sugar cookie with vanilla. A touch of momentary bitterness on the finish with orange peel notes.
Medium mouthfeel, gently creamy and soft with a moderate carbonation. Flows quickly on the palate, though, lending good drinkability.
A fantastic NEIPA, especially from Saranac. Great stuff!

The look is a beautiful hazy unfiltered yellow with a cream head. The citrus of the smell hits you but there is also a sweet bitterness in the smell. The mouthfeel is thick and a little sweet. I taste a hint of orange and pineapple juices, but it doesn't overpower the beautiful pine flavor. This is a great beer that warms your belly. At a refrigerated temp is was more "juicy" and as it warmed up the pine shined through. GREAT BEER!!!

Came in a goblet a slight chill hazed burnt orange infused lighter golden with a thinner white head atop.Floral and citric mainly in the nose with mild booze sweetness.Somewhat sweet upfront on the palate with a sugary element and booziness,some citric and pine notes in the finish do balance some of the sweetness late.It's petty sweet like many of the style but there is a decent hop profile to go along with it.
