4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz into a double dose Ipa glass. Pours a cloudy orange, pineapple yellow hues. Nice soft white head, thin lacing, about a half inch head. This is an awesome beer. Aroma of citrus cascade, citra hops, punchy spices, grass, melon, fun. Taste of solid Ipa levels, great hop profile dominants, followed by a malt backbone which holds steady. Tastes super fresh, no date on bottle though. Nice bitter aftertaste with an orange kick. Label on the bottle is awesome. This is a great choice for pregaming, gaming, and whenever. Super tasty, low abv, I need to buy more.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Drinks of the World. Pours hazy yellow. Very grassy citric aroma, backed with a matching malt body to create an outstanding pale ale. I wouldn?t it?s the most complex one I?ve ever had, but it does everything right nonetheless.

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.
