Thanks. For some more GD reference, the actual name of this beer is "Hey Pocky Way APA"

Congrats on score. Do you know what they dinged you on? Of course if they said its perfect what's the point of improving.?

I'm trying to find a partial mash like this. Do you know the abv? Can I just substitute some base malt for LME?

The ABV is around 6.3%

You can substitute the base malt with any light colored D/LME.

Here are the judges' comments.

Judge 1 (39/50)
Aroma (10/12)
- Great hop aroma with a slight mild malt. Good citrus coming through.
Appearance (3/3)
- Great color. Good off white head. Very clear.
Flavor (14/20)
- Great hop and malt flavor. No off flavors. The balance is appropriate.
Mouthfeel (4/5)
- Solid body with good residual taste. Complete throughout from start to finish.
Overall Impression (8/10)
- Clean; refreshing beer. Only slight negative is that it might be a bit mild.

Judge 2 (40/50)
Aroma (8/12)
- Pleasant hoppy aroma. I get some malt in the background as well. I get some citrusy, piney characters in aroma. No flaws detected.
Appearance (3/3)
- Deep gold color, extremely clear, off-white head persists pretty well. Good looking beer.
Flavor (17/20)
- Very nice flavor balance between hops and malt. The hops are citrusy and pleasant, fresh and the malt has some complexity to add to the drink. Balance is perfect, finishes medium-dry. Makes you want to take another drink.
Mouthfeel (4/5)
- Medium body, medium carbonation.
Overall Impression (8/10)
- Excellent example of an APA! Thanks for sharing/entering it. If I had to nit-pick, maybe up the late hop additions a bit, but otherwise, great job!

Maybe I missed it, but what yeast did you use?
