A: All Souther Tier beers look and lace great. This one hazy gold, topped by yeasty, bottle conditioned, pin-point head that lasts and laces. Sticky. Steady stream of pin point bubbles rise.
S: Subtle, staying power, almost Euro, very yeasty, citrus, fresh.
T: An easy drinker, I'd definitely session this. Next to IPAs and DIPAs I keep reaching for the LIVE! Finely balanced, lots of staying power, gets better as it warms.
MF: Refreshing, keeps you coming back for more, med-bodied, great upbeat finish.

Served at fridge temp in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Clear and golden. This is a bottle conditioned ale so there is a ring of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. I had this beer pretty cold and decanted into a glass carefully as not to disturb the sediment. Medium head of smaller bubbles that dissipated quickly to a ring of lace in the glass.

Nose: Citrusy and floral hops up front with a very slight malty note.

Taste: Refreshing and bubbly, strong resinous hops, more in the West Coast style of APAs. The hops are really the only dominant notes present here.

This seems to be more like an IPA Lite rather than an APA. The bottle conditioning is the best part here because it adds such a wonderful mouthfeel with the added carbonation. Tone down the hops and you might be able to find a pale ale in there.
