a lovely ipa on tap at the brewery, golden in color, the lighter side looks wise, but huge in fresh hop flavor, a nice mix of varietals all well balanced. as i sniff through the inch of sticky white head, i am greeted by aromas of amarillo hops, a more grapefruit heavy variety, and the classic bitterness of simcoe (im pretty certain). the grain gives a lot of fermentable sugar (this is over 7% abv), but doesnt impact flavor much. finally a big ipa that isnt trying to be all grain balanced, much appreciated. bitterness throughout the flavor, with some generic hop characters creeping in, but also a pleasant green tea character for just a second. its fruity and juicy too. not sweet though, just right. this might get a bit much after a few pours, but i think its the best beer i have had from strange so far, its absolutely delicious, fresh as can be, and really nice in feel with little bubbles and a puffy expansive palate. they should package this one.

Had tonight on tap and in take-home growler.
Poured from growler in Maudite chalice.
Gold amber color with significant head.
Aroma of pine and white grapefruit hops.
Significant carbonation and somewhat creamy mouthfeel.
Flavors of white grapefruit rind, pine resin hops, amber malts, subtle powdered sugar and white pepper. There's a little bit of bitterness and dryness in the finish, but it's also a creamy malty mouthfeel. Overall very tasty for a double IPA lover.
