look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A - Copper body, quite dark, somewhat cloudier then expected. Off white head sticks around well, good lacing.
S - Yeasty malt hits immediately, then huge citrus aroma comes in, lots of clementine. Some grassy hops in there too, very strong apparent smell to this one.
T - Very hoppy beer, but somehow finds a way to still feel like a balanced PA to me, versus just another hopped up PA. Lemon zest, clementines up front..sweeter oranges as well. Grassy overtones as well. The hops are nice, but the butter cookie malts are what sets this one apart. Balances perfectly, some ginger or cinnamon in there too. Freaky good tasting PA.
M - Very well done for the style, slick, somewhat chewy, but still light on the tongue.
O - Excellent. Most complex PA I've tried that doesn't simply become a hopped up PA that is really an IPA. Malt character sets it apart, hop profile is delicious.
