Great balance. Enough to satisfy the hop tongue and crisp enough to session. This is spring and summer in one. No need to go all the way down to the light IPA style brews. The live yeast gives extra shelf life , however being close to the brewery that's not an issue here. I've heard of at home kegs getting weak toward the end but never had issue in bars

The cloudier the better with this brew. In my experience with this beer, if u get crystal clear LIVE you have not recieved the best southern tier has to offer. However if your LIVE is all muddy u have the best beer offering the beer gods can deliver. Have yet to determine what makes this beer so muddy and great, wether it is early runs or later ones, or if sitting for awhile helps. If you discover the secret let me in!

330ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange color forming a medium and bubbled white head with medium to low retention and some lacings left in the glass. Lots of particles floating around that I suppose are the result of dry hopping

S: Great nose. Very flowery, fruity and piny. Strong notes of tropical fruits, pine and a touch of citrus. Strong notes of pale malts, mainly Maris Otter. Reminded me the Brewdog Punk IPA. End is a bit earthy. Refreshing...

T: Slightly sweet malts in the beginning. It's always nice the combination of Maris Otter malts and piny hops. Makes it more refreshing and with a strong tropical fruits character. Moderate hop bitterness in the end

M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Something to be mention is the water quality of Southern Tier that gives the beer a quite smooth texture. Piny and fruity aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. An APA that could be easily classified as an IPA. Quite hoppy, refreshing and... Delicious
