This is an excellent IPA, full of hop character dominating a firm malty character, all nicely integrated, with nicely balanced bitterness and sweetness, but with both quite evident.

Pale amber, it has a medium-big off-white head slowly shrinking to a foamy ring and wisps, leaving a little lace.

Aroma is complex and well-rounded, being very juicy with pine resin, citrus, grapefruit, spicy-herbal leaves.

Taste is a firm caramelly maltiness with a little caremlly toasty grain but also raisiny, under very nice juicy-leafy-resiny hop character that dominates with light spiciness. Grapefruit is present but restrained and, suiting my tastes, it is merely one element of a complex whole that has more citrus, general juiciness plus the resin and spicey herbal leaf. Bitterness and sweetness are firm and both are present yet very balanced and well integrated. Feel is very good, firm with faint oiliness but not oily or heavy.

Thanks to Jordan first for giving me a bottle of this a week ago when I was at Bella Vista [Lakefront's PA wholesaler for the Philly area]. I cracked it open immediately, at room temperature and devored it immediately. I liked it so much, two days later I bought a case.

This IPA is a darkish gold/amber color with a small white head poured into a pint glass. It smells fresh, and earthy. Impressive subtlety with presenting and maintaining the hop bitterness throughout the length of the pint. The hops taste earthy, greens, plantlike along with some citrus and traditional pine flavors. The alcohol gave me a pleasant buzz. This is a very drinkable IPA and was a hit with everybody I shared it with.

I met Orlando who is affiliated with the brewery, at the Philly Craft Beer Fest and he is a very nice guy. Good work Lakefront.

Excellent smooth taste. Sweet rich malt and extremely savoury. Delightful finish with tons of flavor.
