From BeerAdvocate Magazine #80 (Sep 2013):

Raw and full of flavor. Unlike any beer Southern Tier brews, as most are really focused, while Live seems more free, though still well within the style. A treat to knock back, though so complex you may want to pair it with something.

STYLE: American Pale Ale
ABV: 5.5%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Hazed pale gold, some suds

SMELL: Citrus rind, pineapple, nutty, faint mint, fresh-cut grass

TASTE: Lighter body, crisp, thick citrus tone, balanced hop bitterness, fresh grain, chalky yeast, hint of peaches, peppery, touch of alcohol, marmalade, juicy, grainy, drying finish
