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.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Fireworks. It pours a nice gold color with a small, foamy white head. The nose is piney with a strong almost detergent note. The taste has a touch of grain, light pine, and a salty side. Watery and thin in body with a watery finish. Not impressed.

12 oz. bottle. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a thin, short lived, off white head, over a clear gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is light with citrus, yeast, spice layers, grass.....taste is cereal, with a touch of grass, light spiciness, finishing with a mild bitterness.....mouth feel is light, carbonation medium This is a light APA, which has some unusual aromas and flavors, most probably from the rye addition. I do not enjoy it much. BJCP 6/3/11/4/6

DocLock (7828) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2011
12 oz bottle from Caponeís. Pours dark straw with 1-finger eggshell head that has good retention. Nose is pale malt, spicy hops. Tastes pale malty, hoppy, floral, with a medium palate heft and a bitter finish. The finish is a bit cloying and astringent.

TheBeerGod (5223) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle. Amber bodied with a short, foamy white head. Aroma is that of spicy and floral hops, caramel, light toffee and dried fruit. Taste is big spicy hops, floral hops, chewy malt, caramel, dark bread dough, toffee, and sauteed, unripe banana. Not sure where that came from but there was a moment that reminded me of bananas foster. Body is medium with a strong carbonation. Ends with more big, spicy hops, floral notes, dark bread, caramel and hints of toffee.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Clear golden pour with a huge amount of visible carbonation. Aroma is light malts with a faint whiff of honey. Flavor is bready with some musty graininess. Very light citrus with some straw. Finish is crisp. This is an APA? I assume itís from the rye as itís a bit spicy but the hops are definitely muted. Not bad though.

Draft. Golden pale ale color. Bright. Fresh aroma and crisp. Citrusy hop flavor. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness. Pretty good

PhillyCraft (3184) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2011
clear orange pour, very carbonated, weak lacing. Aroma is actually pleasent with carmel, vanilla, bready malts. Taste is not so nice. Very bitter finish, flat taste with not much going on really.

dmac (3998) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2011
12 oz bottle from Jersey City Super Buy-Rite. Poured a super thin rusty gold with tons of rising effervescence along with a small/medium fizzy bright white head. Aroma of metal, old wet newspapers and vegtables. Flavor sadly isnít even as good as the aroma, notes of old aluminum can with a faint trace of some long gone vegtable that once used to reside within. Light watery body, forced carbonation, not much of an aftertaste..thankfully. Horrible.

Purchased a 12 oz. Single from from Abeís Cold Beer in Bethlehem, PA. Pours a Golden Hue with a nice head and decent lacing. Taste is malty with a decent offsetting bitterness. The maltiness seems to be a bit watered down though. There was a slight off flavor about it. Otherwise I would consider it a nice hoppy representative of the style. Perhaps I had a bad bottle.
