Saranac India Pale Ale

I decided to drink from my cheerful 50th birthday mug today. The beer is F.X. Matt's Saranac India Pale Ale, which was part of the Trail Mix assortment my sister brought me. She won't touch the India Pale Ale, so they just sit in her fridge. This is actually a pretty mild IPA, somewhere in between the Fiddler's Green and the Flying Dog Snake Dog. It's not as citrusy as some IPA's, although the bottle says that the hops are Cascades. It's more malty than the Fiddler's Green. and a bit higher in alcohol. It poured an orange-amber color, like most IPA's. This is a nice IPA, without being over the top.
