Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and spicy herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

sweet citrus smelling, a little funky, like over ripe raspberry's that if you don't eat soon you'll have have to throw.

very light wispy head , dissipates quickly. some lacing on the glass.

taste like bruised green apple candy, sweet . very sweet. a good blend of hops, but not mouth numbing or super bitter.

light , with a typical watery ipa mouthfeel.

good job lakefront. another success.

12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Thanks Andy!

(A)- Pours a pale golden orange color. Produced a rather large fluffy white cap of froth that stuck around for awhile before dissipating. Tons of clumpy lacing left behind.

(S)- Very dank. Bits of pine meets musty orange and lime citrus.

(T)- Despite the smell, it has a lengthy finish of a great blend of lemon lime citrus and subtle pine. Not overly bitter or sweet, but right in the middle of that.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Not overly bitter or sweet. Solid citrus and pine.

(O)- Overall, its really a solid DIPA. Well balanced and has the citrus and pine that we have all come to expect. Damn tasty
