look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Deep amber color with off-white head and small beading. Great carbonation, pretty good head retention and excellent lacing.

Smell: Big aroma of juicy citrus dominates.

Taste: Slight malty sweetness with a lot of citrus and a nice, clean hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, excellently carbonated feel. Seems to thicken up a bit as the beer warms.

Overall: Excellent APA with everything that should be there. Citrusy, slightly malty and plenty of hops! Clean, crisp and refreshing.
