From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue V:

Huge pillowy off-white head forms from a normal pour, and the hops have a say in all of this as the retention is spectacular. Weathered copper color with a perfect clarity. Smells of pine, mint, hemp oil, lemongrass and blonde tobacco from the hops ... not much from the malt which screams IPA. Medium body seems a tad thicker from the hop oil on the palate that creates this deep smoothness. Surprisingly, not a ton of bitterness, which is nice, as the complex hop flavor dominates throughout with thick herbal, faint pine, grapefruit peel, crushed hemp seeds and mint. The malt character tried to get a taste in edgewise and succeeds by a pinch with a clean and sweet biscuit tone. All of that is smacked down by the hops again. Finishes slightly bitter with a long road of hop flavor that just sticks to the palate.

This IPA outshines most as it drops a load of flavor yet keeps the bitterness in check so you can actually taste the beer rather than your taste buds being numbed by excessive amounts of alpha acids, the bitter oil from the hops. Hopheads need to seek this beer out.

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.
