A bottle of Saranac Clouded Dream IPA poured at refrigerator temperature into a simple pint glass in June, 2019. Thin head dissipates quickly. Healthy amber body with a very slight haze. Taste is inviting. The hoppy flavor is backed up with a mild bitterness and nice malt support. The aftertaste is a slightly bitter hoppiness. I think this a a good moderate take on a modern IPA (consistent with the label description). Matt/Saranac has another good brew.

Lightly hazy, translucent golden orange. Small white head. Decent retention and some lacing.
Smells like iced tea, pine, mango, orange, and grapefruit.
Tastes like mango iced tea with some zest of orange and grapefruit, a bit of toasty malt, and touch of pine on the finish. Crisp and sessionable, but nothing stands out much about the flavors, either.
Medium-light mouthfeel, well carbonated.
Overall, a decent hazy IPA. Certainly not bad, but not great, either.

Look: It pours cloudy and golden with a white head. Head retention is good.

Smell: There are aromas of citrus, grapefruit, pine, and a bit of dankness.

Taste: The flavors are highlighted by citrus and grapefruit with some floral and pine in the background. There is also a bit of grainy sweetness to it.

Overall, it is an easy drinking, citrus IPA.

Pours cloudy gold color with a small off white head that slowly and left minimal spotty lacing. Smells and tastes of lemon zest, orange peel, tangerine, biscuit, tea leaf, toasted grains, dry flowers and faint piney hops. Well balanced and hoppy, but not really difficult for an IPA.

Pours a pale Amber, cloudy, with an ample white head that leaves a trail of lace.

Smells of grapefruit, mango, backed by a floral bouquet.

Taste grapefruit up front rounded by mango rolling to a quick hit of malt slight biscuit. A very solid IPA.

Clouded Dream IPA has a medium golden, very slightly hazy color with a thick, white head.
I smell oranges and maybe even mangoes.
Taste reveals more of the mango essence and a bit of grapefruit.
The feel is quite carbonated with very fine bubbles, and creamy.
Overall, this beer is an excellent IPA. I would definitely buy it again.
