A: Pours a tawny gold color, slightly hazy, with smallish head.
S: Lots of pine-resin hop notes, with underlying caramel malt.
T: Nice blend of hoppiness with malt: I get a rather nice flavor like sourdough breadcrusts out of this--that's not a simple analogy--literally every time I taste it, it reminds me of sourdough bread, nearly exactly. The hoppiness is partially typical piney, but there's a subtle spiciness in there as well, maybe from one of the four varieties. The malt has a great balance against the hops, as well.
M: neutral texture, typical body.

Tasty beer! The "Live" is just a gimmick. They ought to package this on its own and give it a better brand name.

Clear golden pour with a white one-finger head and medium carbonation. Really nice grapefruit flavor upfront. Medium body also has a good pine presence with hints of bread in background. Flavors are really well defined. Finishes dry with a mild lingering citrusy bitterness. Really good beer, grapefruit hop flavor is perfect.
