look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a pint glass. Hazy pineapple - orange color with 2 finger white head that dissipated to a thick film. Faint nose of pineapple and peach. Tastes of tea, pineapple and citrus pith is lighter than expected. Finish is dry and moderately bitter that lingers on the tongue. High carbonation with medium light body. I did not find this to be very juicy compared to others that I have had.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a rich golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of peaches, some citrus. . Taste is of tea, citrus, a touch of dankness, moderate bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent and thirst quenching beer.

Hazy, translucent gold with a soapy white head. Good retention, and sheets of lacing.
Smells like yellow peach, pineapple, papaya, iced tea, hints of guava and passion fruit, peach ring candy, and sugar cookie.
Tastes like sweet tropical fruit iced tea--a hint of roasted tea leaf and then tons of peach, pineapple, mango, papaya, guava, and passion fruit. A hint of sugar cookie malt and vanilla. Crisp and dry on the finish with just a touch more of that iced tea.
Medium mouthfeel, well carbonated, dry, crisp, slightly sticky, and smooth.

Overall, quite possibly Saranac's best hazy IPA yet. A really solid juicy crusher.
