4.3/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I recently became infatuated with IPAs. Definitely a hop-head after trying my first IPA. So, in search of the best IPA I've been trying a bunch of different brands. Lakefront IPA is up there on my list and I would recommend this beer to someone looking for an IPA.

Appearance: Pours a medium copper color, almost an orange. Nice amount of off white head and light lacing.

Smell: A strong citrus smell with a nice amount of hop bitterness to it.

Taste: Just the right amount of bitterness to the taste. I'm very picky when it comes to being overly bitter and not bitter enough. Lakefront hits that sweet spot right on. It also has a nice hint of grapefruit to add complexity.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel with a smooth finish.

Overall: This has become one of my favorite IPAs. When visiting a bar I will usually order this beer if I'm in the mood for an IPA unless there is a brand I haven't tried yet. I would suggest every hop-head try this beer.

4.06/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A- Very nice copper-amber color with some real nice thickness, not clear at all. Very appetizing beer.

S- Smooth blend of citrus and hops. The citrus overwhelms the hops just a bit.

T- Again, the citrus is a bit overtaking of the hops, but a real smooth blend. It has a mild sour taste that lingers with the after taste.

M- It's a happy beer, simple mix, the everyman's IPA. Much like Milwaukee, not over the top, but impressing for some difficult to understand reason. I very personable beer. No one attribute makes this beer, it's just a very good blend that isn't made for everyone, like some IPAs.It's fresh, and opening.

Overall, being from Milwaukee I'm a bit biased, but honestly say it's not my bottom bitch. I love everything Lake Front offers, and this is a staple beer for me I can pick up and enjoy anytime, very versatile. This beer can fit into any outing, party or situation. Great outdoors, fine sittin' around, goes great with pizza, is nice with a fancy pasta...probably not a steak but whatever...I would suggest this as a top tier IPA for anyone.
