Pours a slightly hazy orange with a generous amount white head which retains nicely and leaves heavy lacing. The nose has some odd aromas going on. The hops are piney and give off a hint of burnt plastic aroma. Light malt backbone is present. The taste is a bit sweet with some caramel and lemon with a ton of bitterness to follow. The finish is neutral with no real bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is somewhat heavy for style with high carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, not real impressed with this one.

A-Cloudy orange, one finger head that tries to leave some lacing.

S-Rather citrusy, some grassy notes as well. Very slight bread/malt as well.

T-starts with citrus and tropical notes, there is some pine and grass. The finish has some malt, a tad more than I'd like but some bitterness as well.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation and slight hoppiness.

O-A good APA, if the malt was toned down slightly it would have been better.
