Rather pale golden color with white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, melon, a bit piney, a bit spicy. Taste is a little earthy, a bit tropical fruits, a bit biscuity, a bit spicy, finish also a bit spicy. Very well balanced, very interesting and very good!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I thought this was going to have live or wild yeast in it, but apparently the name refers to live music somehow. Solid-looking pour and a dull label. This is a nice PA with some dusty green hops in the flavor. It is smooth on the palate and the aroma is a touch funky. Good overall, but I’m surprised it rates so high (96 at the moment).

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour bright hazy orange with a one finger white head which fade to just a little lacing. Aroma is of bready malts, citrus (mainly lemon), pine, grassy hops, herbal hops, tropical fruits, and some light dankness. Taste is citrus, pine, bready malts, grassy and herbal hops, tropical fruits, and some light sweet malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi-moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice APA that both well balanced and easy drinking.

Nailed it. Draft pour. Pours a clear copper with a white head. The aroma is softly fruity and has a touch of sweet tart to it. Maybe also fruity pebbles. Taste is sweet and fruity with a bready finish. Light body and medium carbonation. Really nice beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Gusher. Super cloudy, beaming orange color. Opaque, but cool looking. Topped with a soapy, frothy white head. Creamy. Aroma has some grapefruit, orange, & citrus hops, but there’s a really strong, overly sweet malt body beneath it that distracts a bit. Sugar cookie, residual sweetness. Slight herbal twinge. Flavor is kind of thin. Tastes a bit like flower vase water. Botanical & floral. Spicily bitter with some ashy & leafy notes. Sweet biscuit & honey malt in the periphery. Slightly strange vegetal finish. Not awful, but I’m not exactly loving this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear golden with a thick cream-eggshell head. Malty aroma has a citrus hoppy overtone. Flavor is more hoppy than malty, rather like an IPA, not strong but refreshing. Mouthfeel is about average in fizz and viscosity. Good for a party, or with lunch.
