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. It’s strangely satisfying.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Cask at Backcountry Pizza. Pours a light red/gold with almost no foam. Smells very lights and a little sweet. Tastes like a combination of an amber and a pale with cheap malts. Has a fair amount of hops, cascade in the forefront ending with magnum, and finishes with hops as opposed to its weaker malt flavors.

DocLock (11020) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2011
12 oz bottle from Capone’s. 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.

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

Golden clear pour white thin head .... malty and floral hop aroma ... thin and malty taste with a floral hop that flows into a light bitter finish not much to say about this one its drinkable and decent ... you probably shouldn’t talk to this stranger

PorterPounder (8267) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark golden, light copper pour, sticky but thin off-white head. Slightly funky aroma - hints of toe jam and peach marmalade. Flavor is odd for a pale ale. Some spiciness, a bit of muted citrus, some spearmint tinted rye flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth, Mark this one as decent.

BroSpud (2239) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 12, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a very pale amber with very little head. Also very little body and, unfortunately, very little taste. It’s quite drinkable just not much too this one.

Foxbush (2112) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 This was purchased at Whole Foods in Richmond. I wanted to try some of the beers they were promoting. The floral aroma of hops was very evident. The clear golden color was the best I have seen. The head was small and disapated. The slight bitter taste lingered after each drink. Smooth finish for this medium body ale. This is not a remarkable APA. I purchased another on tap at Miller’s in Charlottesville. This was a better brew and I improved scores

rougeau13 (3182) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Tap at brewery. Clear golden with a lacing, puffy white head that lasts forever. Aroma of citrus and pine and pale malt. Tastes like tortilla chips, pale malt and hay. Medium-thin. The aroma is MUCH better than the taste.

AR (1002) - Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2011
Dry Rye. That sums up this beer in a nushell. Limited Aroma. Dry, malty pale ale. Very drinkable with some mexican cousine.

dwaggs2 (1298) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle. Poured a darker yellow color with a smaller white head. Aroma was decent on this one. Pine, citrus flavors, and grapefruit. Flavor was a let down. Soapy taste. Some metallic in there. Grass and straw. No real hop bitters to it. Not a lot to this beer. Way to smooth for an APA. Well below average for the style.
