COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Itís strangely satisfying.

Bottle, 12oz. Itís a clear, dark golden beer with an off-white head of moderate size. The aroma is quite floral at first, then pine cones and citrus peel kicks in, but not completely removing the floral, rose-like scents. Some spiced hints in the flavor, with roses, citrus peel and pine cones. Full body, quite dry on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Thereís a lasting bitterness in there as well. Not sure if I like the floral touch, but itís a decent beer anyway. Quenching. 130821

Yes, a bit floral and lager-like as other guy have mentioned. Not sure Iíd call this an American Pale Ale at all as the hops taste more like a traditional English IPA and the wheaty, lager taste reminds me of a golden ale.

Pours a clear gold with a medium white head. Thereís a medium hops with a hint of spice. It has a medium hops taste. It has a medium to full body with a slightly sticky texture. This is one of the better American pale ales Iíve had, itís almost no different from some of the better IPAs Iíve had.

MaltOne (182) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Pours yellow gold, nice white head. Slight floral aroma. Taste is nice hop and faint sweet malt, with the rye profile shaping everything. Very drinkable, everyday beer - not a stand-out.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Pale golden colored pour. Giant white head. Plenty of lacing. Nice hop aroma. Some danky pine aroma, and citrus. Taste is a watered down malt and hop. Bitter in the back with some lemon notes. Not bad.

natejgood (390) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Pours a clear golden color with relatively large bubbles and a white head. Aroma is a bit malty. Slight aroma of hops and grass. Slightly sweet with a bit of a wheat flavor. Also, tastes a bit lagery. Not my favorite beer.
