Aroma is sweet sticky apricot resin. Golden orange with a small cream head. Light and refreshing with a good floral hop taste that hits with a nice bitterness in the back end. Malt is lightly sweet, but comes off drier than expected. Bready and smooth. A very solid pale ale.

Bottle. I pronounced this like "live" the adjective while my friend said "live" the verb, almost came to blows. Cloudy amber, white head. Nose is apricot, grapefruit. Flavour is same--apricot pit now being the main flavour--with lemon, pepper. slight pine resins. Nice light palate. Well executed juicy APA!
