4.2/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

So, I almost grabbed a Sierra Nevada Torpedo, at the same price, but then I spotted this beer. I believe in buying local, when you can, so I took a chance on this beer.

It's surprisingly good.

On popping the top, there wasn't much of an initial smell, which surprised me. I was expecting overwhelming hoppiness.

The taste surprised me: Really strong, but not overpowering flavor of hops smacks you mid-tongue. Piney, citrusy, and downright refreshing.

It hits a whole lot harder than the 5.7% ABV that it sports. The drinkability makes it that much worse.

It's a great beer, that proves you don't have to be big, to be great.

Nice.

2.9/5  rDev -22%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Tasted On: 03-16-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Single from Frugal MacDoogal, Nashville

A: Pours a dark copper-colored beer with a nicely sized white head. Very good lacing and head retention. Quite a bit of floating sediment is seen in the glass -- I'm guessing hop particles?

S: Aromas are pretty light, with a hint of grassy and floral hops and not much else.

T: The taste is mainly of hop bitterness, with no malt character. The bitterness has an unpleasant astringency to it.

M: The carbonation gives this a crisp mouthfeel with a medium body. The finish has hoppy bitterness and an aftertaste of the astringency noted before.

O: Overall I wasn't too pleased with this, my first beer from Lonerider. It seemed like a one-trick pony with bitterness as the only noticeable trait and marred by an off-taste.

3.91/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle -> snifter

A - medium gold, fairly clear, initial one finger soapy head, pretty good retention and lacing.

S - pine, floral, citrus, bread, earthy notes

T - The taste follows the nose to a large degree. The finish has a nice little bite with an almost charcoal like flavor.

M - adequate carbonation with a slight aftertaste

O - pretty much a standard pale ale; a good one, but hardly world class.

3.84/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a chilled Brit pub pint glass.

Appearance 3.75: Poured out an attractive deep golden color. "Pale"? Not that I can see. Decent head (1/4") faded fast. OK lacing.

Smell 3.75: Very nice bouquet. Lots of hops, but some notes of deep barley malt and caramel as well.

Taste 4.0: Front is slightly sweet with a subtle hop bite. Middle is smooth with a subdued barley sweetness. Finish features more of the very pleasant (but assertive) hop medley and more of a deep barley taste along with a certain floral character and a hint of biscuit malt. Aftertaste is surprisingly long and features more of the pleasant hop character.

Mouthfeel 3.5: Nice and smooth and certainly enhances the enjoyment of the beer.

Overall 3.75: Surprising and not your everyday "micro making a macro" brew. Clean, crisp but assertive and hoppy, this beer is perfect for sessioning and would also go great with food. There is a depth to this beer that you will find appealing. Recommended.
