Poured into a glass.

A - Orange-gold. One finger head dissipates quickly but good retention throughout. Nice lacing.

S - Light grapefruit, sweet malt

T - Begins with sweet malt and fruit. Ends in yummy grapefruit with minor pine notes. Dry, with a pleasant light bitterness.

O - This is a damn-near prefect brew. Kudos, Great Lakes!
