Patriot Pale

12oz single from Total Wine, Atlanta, GA, USA.
A somewhat cloudy, light copper pour with some really nice lace and some significant head. Looks nice. I’d like a little more clarity but it’s not the end of the world.
A little floral hop note in the nose.
This beer seems to drink a little muddled to me. The hop profile is there but to me it seems a bit jumbled. Citrus notes yes, but at the same time I get competing soapy hop notes and some slick malts. The combination is a little powdery and lacks definition for me. Unfortunately I get some buttery diacetyl on the back end too.
Having had some good experiences with RJR I feel this beer has some way to go before it gets my attention again.
A little let down to be honest.
