Sane or senseless? Harmless or harmful? Sometimes it takes awhile to get to know a stranger. Initial impressions are not always reality, so you must delve deeper. Beyond the initial floral hop aromas, malt sweetness is revealed, yet with a spicy undertone that exposes a very rye sense of humor. Take your time to get to know the Stranger. It’s strangely satisfying.

This kind of sucks. Totally out of balance with burnt and grainy notes but also some citrus. After one sip all I could think was, what the hell?

A very shy pale ale. Just a wisp of hops in the aroma and the taste is lightly sweet with a surprisingly full maltiness (yes, I’m inventing a word--deal with it). A quick finish leaves a hint of the malty sweetness. Found the Stranger in the brother-in-law’s beer refrigerator and, after I finished it, I looked for something else.

Pours cloudy amber with a great creamy off white head. Aroma is citric piny malty fruity. Flavor is oily malty piny a bit thin soapy. Finishes malty bitter.

Leafs93 (1858) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Pours gold with small offwhite head. Aroma is bready, caramel and faint hints of citrus. Taste is sweet with minimal bitters. Light and smooth mouthfeel. Not as crisp as I usually like in pale ales.

badwhale (394) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle to pint glass. I can’t really tell the color, as this is a green mason jar. I think it’s a clear yellow. Has an off white head, with good lacing. Has a funny corn odor to it. Mouthfeel isn’t too bad. It’s kinda like a rye ale. Light to medium body.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Very common pale ale here. slight orange tinged yellow color. Aroma is orange, sour grapefruit and grass. Slight citrus hop taste. Watery mouth-feel with not very crisp carbonation. Forgettable.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Milky yellow with a thin white head that fades into a ring around the brewski. Aroma is very floral with citrus, bready malt and grains. Taste is right down the middle with floral and grassy hops, caramel and minor bitterness.

jcr (2310) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle. Light gold with a frothy white head, mostly diminishing. The aroma shows notes of resin, toasted grain, bread. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. The finish is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A thin beer with not a lot of depth or character. Taste of citrus and grain and they leave an off taste in the finish. Below average APA.

garrison (792) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2011
From a twelve ounce bottle purchased at "Ludlow Wines" in Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, I like my IPA’s and wanted to really like this one, but it came in dead last. The brew poured golden fluid with a rapidly fading white head and an extremely faint aroma. Tastewise, this was more like an overnighted lager than a true IPA... where’s the ciyrus/hoppy blast? The blasting bitterness? Still drinkable, but not great.
