Beer has a cloudy dark gold pour with a small white head. Has a floral aroma with some hints of citrus. The medium body has a really well balanced grapefruit and pine hop flavor backed by just a bit of bready malt. Finishes with a mild piney bitterness.

On tap at Seco2d in Austin May 30, but worried this could be an old keg since availability is Dec-Apr. Pours a cloudy orange gold with small head in a tulip glass. Big grapefruit aroma with malty bready backbone. Hops are still there so thats good. Pine prickle up front fades into sweet malt and a lasting bitter on the palate. Massive lacing and a big slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Pushes the malt bill of an impy even at only 6%. Pleasantly surprised here. Really been impressed with Live Oak while here in Austin.
