12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It is amber with golden highlights. It is topped with three inches of beige head.

S - At first, I noticed the citrus. Then came some pine. Finally, I got some caramel malt.

T - The taste has some floral and citrus flavors. The caramel malt comes through in the middle. The finish has a mild pine bitterness.

M - Medium and smooth. Low carbonation.

O - I was looking forward to trying this beer. I was a little disappointed. There is nothing to make this IPA stand out. It is solid, but not noteworthy.

First time trying something from Lakefront.
Poured into pilsner style glass.
A-Color amber/gold cloudy the a little white head

T-Nice caramel malts and bitter hops.

S-Some hint of pine and floral notes.

M-Nice finish that is dry and crisp.

Overall as nice English style IPA. I would have this beer again.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours out clear deep gold with one finger of foamy white head little lacing.
S - Some grassy dank scents, caramel malts, slight orange, grapefruit, pine.
T - Lots of sweeter malt up front, caramel and toffee, then you get a mild orange flavor and some light herbal tones, finishes with a dry bread malt flavor.
M - Very chewy and sticky feeling.
O - Its ok, I dont like how it feels, but its got all the main qualities of an AIPA.
