Looks great, a dark orange/medium amber color with a decent head that leaves lacing down the entire glass. Only thing stopping it from a higher rating in looks is its quickly dissapating head.
Smell's wonderful... both citrus and hops come through.
Has a wonderful hoppy finish, but with hardly any bitterness. Lots of malts and hops, but neither too overdone. I love the way it finishes, tho I sometimes wish it had a little more 'umph'.
Medium-Heavy bodied, but goes down like water... far and away trumps macro swill, and now that it's available around the Detroit area, I'm sure I'll be drinking quite a bit more of this.
Thanks for the great brew, Brooklyn. Very much on par with the likes of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Rated to enjoyment, not to style.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a 1" thick, rocky head with great retention. Significant visible carbonation. Lacing goes all down the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Fruity, tropical, grapefruit; malty background. It's those Cascade hops! Smells great, but doesn't seem like a Vienna lager.
Taste: Dry, clean arrival, bitter and clean across mid-palate. Dry, hoppy finish. It could use a little more malt, but it is a lager, not an ale, after all.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, good carbonation.
Overall: Really pleasant. Because this doesn't quite seem like a Vienna lager, what with the strong American hopping, I'm not going to rate it as one (BJCP does not have a category for American Amber Lager - that's a problem...). This is a beer I could come back to again and again. It is a well-structured, balanced, hoppy craft lager. Easily one of my top five beers of all time. Clean, refreshing, and remarkable (but not a Vienna lager).
