I'm pretty sure this the same beer, but it no longer has "The Stranger" in it's name. Served in tulip. Poured a lovely orangeish-amber, with a hint of dark gold, color and just under a half-inch of white head that had very good retention and lacing.

The aroma was pretty even between some slightly sweet malt and some bitter, grapefruity hops. The story was the same on the tongue, a bit sweet at first, and lots of citrus bitterness across the rest of the palate. There was definite alcohol bite as well.

The body was fairly typical, and perhaps a bit too sticky on the finish. Drinkability was average for the style. Overall, a solid example of the style. Worth a shot if you see it.
