a tasty pale ale, maybe a bit boring for those who like them a little more hoppy, and maybe a bit dull after having a few india pale ales, but its a good session brew, and one of the fee with modest alcohol content at the strange taproom. bronze in color, and just a touch of chill haze to it, the beer holds on well to three quarters of an inch of white fluff. nose and taste are identical, both a little muted, especially compared to their others, but the hops have some slightly distinct element to them. not sure what they use in this, but its got some more summery straw brightness and less bitterness than most pales. malt is rather straight forward on it, just a touch of color above the pale two row base malt. carbonation is a little less than where maximum refreshment takes place, and it doesnt warm up particularly well. better than an afterthought, but strange is clearly focused on more challenging beers than their pale ale, which is a shame in some ways, because this isnt far off being excellent. a good first beer, less impressive after several others.

A lighter golden pour, a touch cloudy. Head is good looking with a mixture of large and small bubbles. Lacing is slick.

Hosp are present here for sure. Citrus and green pine, floral. Somewhat husky as well. Malt is overpowered in the aroma...

...and the taste. While the hops don't demand an IPA labeling, the malt is not putting up much of a fight. It's the under card here. Soft toasted biscuit, some caramel. But its dampening makes this beer lighter to drink. A husky aftertaste prevents me from just pounding this. A good beer for porch or with dinner

I had this one earlier this afternoon at the brewery. Poured a somewhat cloudy bronze color, with a lingering beige head. Very hop forward, with aromas of citrusy hops and pine. On the palate, this one was light to medium bodied, with biscuity malt, citrus zest and piney hops. A very hop centric and delicious pale.
