Pours amber is color with an half inch head with a nice lacing. The smell is malty sweet. The tongue begins malty and immediately taste the hops. Actually reminds me of a nice rye beer but there's not rye just nice hops. The mouthfeel is moderate and overall really enjoy this beer and will pick up again.

Had on tap at Sticks and Stones today here in G-boro.Poured a deep ruby color with a one finger off white head that lasted pretty well,real deep color to tis beer.Aromas of leafy and somewhat earthy hops over top of brown sugar and kilned lightly roasted malt.Good balance on the palate with a shot of leafy and sharp earthy hops intertwined with caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness,a fair amount of roast as well.A nicely made hoppy amber,not a citric or resiny hop bomb but nice flavors and nice looks.

Draft @ beer study in chapel hill. Into a FW tulip

Pours a dark red color with a nice head. the smell is huge on hops and just..goodness. Really impressed by the aroma. Taste is quite solid - lots of hops but not so overpowering, malts are there as well and it finishes with a good bitterness. i really enjoyed it. medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall one of the better hoppy reds out there and one of loneriders better beers!
