look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Pretty standard for a PA. Orange, a little lacey.

S: It smells like weed. Just straight hops, but faint. It's sweet, too. Intoxicating.

T: Again, pretty standard for a PA. It's well done. A little dry, slight citrus, and decent sweetening hops. A nice sugary crystalization is there.

M: This is where this beer really does it. It's thin, but crisp. Extremely bubbly. Tingles on your toungue. Goes down fast and kicks the back of your throat like a coca-cola. Awesome.

OVERALL: I've had this beer on tap quite a few times and never understood why everyone said it was so good, but this is my first bottle. Maybe I always had bad tap lines, because this beer is amazing. It's a safe beer done perfectly. Love it.

NOTE: Live review.
