look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 24 oz bottle into a wheat glass

A: nice head really nice color its a copper color and the beer is not clear, dry hop anyone?

S: hops malt and a spicy orange maybe the orange zest mixed with the actual fruit

T: taste is like the smell you get hops and malt followed up with some orange zesty flavors and finishes back with the malt the beer is balanced and well crafted

M: its high in carbonation and that makes it refreshing perfect mouth

D: of course this one is highly drinkable and you get more bang for your buck with most beers 5.6 ABV is nothing to sneeze at

overall its a really well crafted beer and one of the best APA's I have ever had perfectly drinkable for all year round but I like to drink this spring and summer and maybe some fall but not as much during the fall.
