Bottled August 1st Week - Pours a clear, light copper with a soapy white head that dissipates rather quickly into some residual bubbles around the edges.
Tropical fruit right up front with some caramelly sweetness. Pineapple and mango with a dank resin aroma behind it. Hints of bitter grapefruit pith and malted grain.
The sweetness and tropical fruit really come through up front with a dank, slightly bitter finish. Mango is the winner. This drinks much more like a pale ale though. I am not seeing IPA characteristics but I DO like the flavors that are coming through.
Slightly thin with a lighter body than expected. Great carbonation level though that really comes across the tongue.
This is a tasty brew for those lighting the fruity notes of hops. I wanted a bit more body, but this is enjoyable as a pale ale IMO.

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.
