A: Pretty standard for a PA. Orange, a little lacey.
S: It smells like weed. Just straight hops, but faint. It's sweet, too. Intoxicating.
T: Again, pretty standard for a PA. It's well done. A little dry, slight citrus, and decent sweetening hops. A nice sugary crystalization is there.
M: This is where this beer really does it. It's thin, but crisp. Extremely bubbly. Tingles on your toungue. Goes down fast and kicks the back of your throat like a coca-cola. Awesome.
OVERALL: I've had this beer on tap quite a few times and never understood why everyone said it was so good, but this is my first bottle. Maybe I always had bad tap lines, because this beer is amazing. It's a safe beer done perfectly. Love it.

Bottled beer served in a glass.
Golden/amber, hazy, with a fine suspended sediment. Very little effervescence. Moderate head, with moderate longevity.
Fruity and refreshing aromas of pine, citrus, banana and honey.
Overall a very bitter and hoppy beer. Sips reveal citrus and banana notes, with a dominant grapefruit flavour. Banana cake flavours become more prominent when swallowed. Finishes with a bitter, cut grass after-taste.
A beer that feels clean and as light as air. The light carbonation provides a slight numbing tingle. A refreshing beer that goes down easily.
A refreshing and fruity beer; an APA which ventures towards IPA territory being hop-rich. Full of flavour with a pleasant albeit slightly weak aroma, and plenty of complexity to enjoy. The bitter, grassy after-taste can linger and be a touch overpowering at times; it's best to let this one warm a bit to balance the flavours a bit more. One that's definitely worth a try.
