12 oz bottle poured into snifter.
A - in bright light, this beer doesn't look like much more than Boston Lager. In dimmer light, however, it's a very good looking orange.
S - do not care for the smell. The acidity is very present and the hop presence gives it a sense of sour wheat.
T - not bad, but not much going on. There is far too much carbonation for it to be sipped, and the hops have almost no floral character. Sour and bitter.
M - like I said, the carbonation is overwhelming and really invades your mouth. Not a sipping beer.
O - not a terrible beer, but there are much better PAs to be had.
