Pours a cloudy golden orange with a 1/2 inch head that dissipates relatively quickly. Not much lacing is left along the glass as you finish it. The smell has a mild hoppiness with hints of citrus fruit cutting through. This beer kinda sneaks up on you. First few sips just seemed like a watered-down pale ale, but then I started to notice a subtle mango and honey in the taste. It's actually a very delicious beer -- perfect for a hot day outside in the summer when you want a beer with just a little bit of a kick to it.
