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.

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

12oz bottle served into a Great Lakes snifter 6/15/2014.

A- Hazy golden orange body, one finger white head with fair retention, leaving rings of lacing.

S- Pine and citrus, some onion. Not a whole lot else, but there is definitely a good bit of citrus to it. A bit of biscuit, but not a lot of malt sweetness.

F- Biscuits, some citrus, onions. Finish is pretty piney and quite bitter. A bit different than I'd like it- I'd like it more citrusy, grapefruity with less of the bitter finish.

M- Medium body, enough carbonation, quite bitter on the backend.

O- Decent DIPA, probably one of the better ones out of Wisconsin but it's still not that particularly impressive. It lacks that citrus punch and has too much bitterness along with the onion that detracts from the rest of it.

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.
