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.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Cask at Backcountry Pizza. Pours a light red/gold with almost no foam. Smells very lights and a little sweet. Tastes like a combination of an amber and a pale with cheap malts. Has a fair amount of hops, cascade in the forefront ending with magnum, and finishes with hops as opposed to its weaker malt flavors.

12 ounce bottle. Brassy gold color. Small bubbly white head with nice lace. Fresh citrus hop aroma. Toasted grainy malt flavor upfront. Slightly spicy rye malt flavor balanced by complex hops. This is a well crafted, medium bodied pale ale that is very quaffable.

On tap at Dan's. The pour is light, golden, ring of head and no lace. The aroma is crisp and clean. Lightly hoppy, some good citrus and a touch of floral. There seems to be a little lacking. The flavor is just as light. Some citrus and bitter hops on the back end with a little grassy note in the middle. The mouth feel is thin, clean, not carbonated. The aftertaste isn't really there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lemke10 (862) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2013
This pours a hazy golden yellow color with a slight, off-white head. The aroma is filled with hops but fairly mild ones, not quite to the extent of an IPA. The taste is weaker and thinner than I expected. There is a decent bitterness to the beer that delivers flavor without being overly crisp. Itís fairly average and could use some work.

This is not a real good pale ale. Too much malt. Where are hops in this one?

rader58 (814) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 10, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color. Aroma of pine, citrus, floral. Very low aroma. Flavor is citrus and floral hops. A nice touch of sweetness in the finish. A very easy drinking beer, but lacks a bit of that bite that I like in an American Pale Ale.

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 IPAís 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... whereís the ciyrus/hoppy blast? The blasting bitterness? Still drinkable, but not great.

HIGHB4LL (792) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Appearance: small white head that diminishes quickly, good lace, slightly cloudy, yellow golden color. Aroma: wet hops, citrus, resin, grass, hay, caramel. Palate: light body, sticky texture, watery finish. Taste: light sweet wheat taste, similar to a pilsner really; medium bitter hoppiness. Overall, nothing I really ever want to drink again,

kdm1984 (778) - Missouri, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pours orange with a teensy head and not much lacing - not typical for an APA. Aroma is mostly orange and grapefruit citrus with some malt. Taste is citrusy with some hop bitterness and malt. One of the most light-bodied APAs Iíve had - almost watery. While not as bad as I was expecting - very drinkable - itís still rather weak for the style.

ExpendableHero (770) - Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Copper colored beer with a white head. Aroma of grains, some funk, and hints of hops. Tastes of grainy water, a bit of citric notes, and some mild floral hops. Semi-sweet finish. A bit muted, watery brew. Lackluster, but unoffensive.
