COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pub Brew. Stroker Ace is a bright, carrot-orange colored ale with fruity hop aromas of citrus zest. This brew is light bodied with low malt sweetness, which allows for an array of noticeable lemony flavors that range from citrus fruit to lemongrass. A proper IPA bitterness resonates in the back of the throat providing a slight lingering bite, and an increasing dryness.

Slightly occluded golden pour with half an inch of white fluffy head, spotty lacing. Bright citrus aroma, rind, straightforward but nice. Average carbonation, mouthfeel a bit on the thin side, dry somewhat astringent finish. Flavor is very light, watery orange flavor, citrus zest, nutty zesty malt. The number of APA’s from shorts that taste similar are astounding, perhaps they should reevaluate.

Bottle shared by Adam, who always brings back interesting beers upon returning from Michigan. Hazy, straw yellow body with a white cap. Hop forward, mild sweetness, easy drinking. Some biscuit malt underneath a fruity hop character. Light in body with mild bitterness. Pretty good.

chucklemation (510) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Pours a clear, bubbly yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus and pine hops. Flavor is a very high hops profile, with some citrus and pine. Has a bit too much bite for its low abv, but it’s decent.

SpongeRuiner (752) - Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Yet another IPA from Shorts... I don’t hear anyone complaining. This one pours a clear light wheat color. With a frothy white head. A crispy light hop note right upfront. A tingly pepper taste settles on the tongue which is a primary flavor in this one. A nice mouthfeel here. Not bad. Sessionable.

Tap at Short’s...very tasty light orange brew with a complex citrus over sticky pine sap flavor all held in a light bodied brew that finished clean with a slight bitterness. Yum.

Excellent session IPA . Enough malt to keep it from being "hop water". Cloudy golden color.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear golden with a white head. Honey, caramel, butterscotch, berry aromas. Grassy hop flavors with butterscotch, tea, and berry. Not great, seems a bit stale.
