On tap at Bangers. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some orange and pine notes as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same with a low amount of bitterness and a decent amount of hop flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Copper with white wispy head, strong lacing. Light citrus - lemon, grass, light cookie dough. Oily texture, sharp bitterness on tongue and in finish. Enjoyed this with barbecue iand my first ever grits in Lambertís Austin TX . Great hop flavours but lacks balance.

I enjoyed three of these pints during my stop in Austin. The aroma had a nice floral hoppy smell. The beer had a fresh crisp hoppy taste with a good bitter lingering hop aftertaste. Itís drinkability is superb and I recommend this as a great tasting and refreshing IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful appearance, Pretty dark to light copper, top to bottom, slightly cloudy. 1 inch thick head. Well balanced, nice sweet hop aroma with a little bit of spice. Insane bubbling coming from every location in the glass, which is just awesome. 360 degree coverage laces the glass on the draw down. Taste is, did I mention the aroma is just superb. On the palate, it starts off sweet, and sharp in the nose, medium-full body, and finishes a little funky with a dirty food taste, not unlike other live oak products. Could be due to their horizontal brew kettles. Nonetheless, the beer is awesome and finishes with a taste of Barton Springs pure spring water (limestone) hints.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice gold colored pour with a good sized white head as poured on draft. Smell is very nice, with an apricot fruity hoppiness, and a touch of honey and a bit of yeast. Taste is quite fruity, sweet malt, with a lasting light bitterness from the perfect hop presence. This is an underrated, quality pale similar to their IPA in flavors, but milder. Perfect combination of crisp and smooth feel on the palate. Proud to know this is a local beer, and one I look forward to getting again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber with a frothy white head. Cascade hop and crystal malt aroma. Clean hop and caramel flavor with a distinct grainy note. Nice pale but not nice enough to stand out.
