Pours a very cloudy, pale yellow gold color with half finger off-white head. I like the coloring. Aroma has mango orange notes, not too sweet though. Very pleasant. Taste follows the smell. Low malt and medium bitterness make for a clean hop flavor with a mildly bitter finish. Very smooth and creamy feel from the lactose fills out the beer well and offers a nice balance to the crisp flavor. Has a bit of seltzer in the feel as well.
This is one of the most enjoyable beers I've had from GC. It is not trying to be over the top with hop flavor - just a clean fresh and slightly sweet experience. Not sure why it is being voted so low - maybe I just got a "good batch" of it?

Can from East Derry dated 12/14/16.
Hazy Murky deep yellow tang color with a thin bubbly white head that persists. Juicy citrus and melon with a hint of milk stout on the nose. Bitter creamy weird citrusy tropical fruit flavor. Somewhat harsh bitterness lingers deep into the finish and after. Light buttery diacetyl flavor. Meh. It almost seems like they tried to soften an overly harsh IPA by adding lactose. Drinkable but not world class.

I've picked this up the first day it was available at the brewery. Very cloudy. Dark golden color. Absolutely no light passes through it. Mango and pineapple aroma which gets better as it warms. Nice heavy mouthfeel with light carbonation. Mild bitter finish. I always make a summer trip to this brewery when I go up to Lake Winnie. liked every beer I've had from GC. I'll seek this out again next trip up to the lake!
