look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
A: A hazy medium copper with lots of orange. The head is persistant and off-white with rocky bubble forming a thin cap and leaving lacing on the glass.
S: A moderately citrus hops aroma with mostly a lemon-lime like scent. The malt aroma is very enticing, it's biscuity and a little sweet. It smells like I've got an older bottle where the hops have faded but it's not too old. There is a moderately-low alcohol aroma and a light fruity ester.
T: A strong citrus hops flavor and moderately strong hops bitterness. There is a moderate caramel and light biscuit malt flavors with only a light sweetness up front. A low orange-like fruit ester. The finish is dry and the aftertaste is of citrus and hops bitterness.
M: A creamy medium-light bodied beer with moderately-strong carbonation. No astringency. A light alcohol warmth.
O: A good IPA that might be great if fresh and I'll keep my eyes open for a recently delivered bottle. What I have in front of me have a decent balance but I want brighter and stronger hops aroma and flavor but the balance between malt and bitterness is right where it should be to make and bitter beer that allows you to enjoy several. It's not the IPA I'd want to buy if zombie apocalypse is about to start.

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.
