Poured in a dark orange/copper color with a tan off white head. Very clear not cloudy at all, looks great.
Smells of citrus, oranges mainly, and a malty aroma hit first. A very sweet aroma with some roasted scents thrown in for good measure. My mouth was already watering in anticipation.
Very nice floral hops taste with the citrus coming forefront. Not much bitterness at all. A nice earthy malt flavor comes through at the end with the grains dominating all the way through. A slight hint of mango as well with reminders of perhaps papaya are tasted.
Not thick at all and almost slick as it goes down. Still no trouble actually drinking this as it is one of the smoothest beers I have had yet. Being exeptionally tasting, great looking, and smelling amazing this is a highly drinkable beer. I have bought 6-12 packs of this beverage on a regular basis. Another great brew from Great Lakes.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of lots of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Citrus, herbal, grassy hops followed by toasted and pale malts.
Taste: Toasted and pale malts forward with all the hop characteristics and bitterness in between. Balanced and drinkable.
Mouthfeel: Chewy, crisp, refreshing, bite, light to medium bodied, and medium carbonation.
Overall: There is a nice balance to this beer and I wish I had more. Will have to put in some requests with friends driving through Pennsylvania again.
