3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint at the brewery. I am still shocked to see Strange’s beers rated so low on this site. A score of 53? Are you guys drinking the same IPA? The aroma is rich with emphasis on Simcoe. A dank, garlicky nose is on this with a little bit of pine and grapefruit. The palate is solid for the style, just enough heft to remind me I’m having an IPA. The hops come through cleanly in the flavor too with a firm bitterness throughout and dank herbal qualities highlighted by pine, a touch of citrus and garlic. This brew is in the same vein as Great Divide’s Titan and could pass as a serviceable replacement which, incidentally, is scored 98 on this site.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Strange. Pours a pale bright amber with a lacy off white head. Citrus hops with lots of sweet malt in the aroma. Drinks much the same way, lots of malt to balance the hops. Med. mouthfeel, low carbonation, smooth, balanced. Sweet with lingering grapefruity taste. The Pale Ale has a lot more in the way of hops but i like the malt balance in this IPA a lot better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at they brewery. Poured a clear copper color with a moderate off-white head that slowly faded to a thin layer and left some thick rings of lacing. Aroma of much of the same dank hoppiness present in the ipa, leafy, piny, and citrus fruit. Smooth, sweet entry with a soft fruity sweetness leads into a moderately bitter hoppiness with a nice leafiness along with a more refrained pine flavor that lingers into the finish. Low carbonation and moderate mouth feel that is complimented by the dry hoppiness. Overall, a little more bitter, less perfumy version of the pale ale. That’s good in my book.
