look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Hazy amber orange color with a thick two finger head with good retention and leaving some laces.
Superb hoppy aroma with notes of mango, lychees, fresh orange-lemon zest, clean pine, grapefruit, pineapple, flowers and bread. I am hungry, so more nose sensitive and easier to imagine this fresher.
Flavor with notes of green tea, lemongrass, a bit of mango, ginger, pine, white pepper, sweet flowers, grapefruit, lemon and tangerines. Dry aftertaste with a very delimited bitterness.
Light body with perfect carbonation of the tiniest bubbles given a somewhat velvet feeling. Relatively potent at 6.8% abv for and APA which is completely absent.
World class APA with lots of dank and green diversity side by side zesty citrus notes. Clean and crisp as it can be. I was expecting a high bar which was delivered accordingly.

I cracked this baby 10 days after canning. Damn it's good. I didn't get to pour into a glass but the can is dope so 5. It tastes like Jurassic park. Smells very floral with a lil bit of pineapple. Tastes very fresh floral with just a tinge of pineapple / mountain dew in there, but not in a sweet way. Pretty damn awesome beer. I will stock up on a case before I drive back east. Bravo
