I enjoy the hoppy brews ... so this evening I cracked open this BIG EYE P A (part of a personal 6-pk from Total Wine).

Refreshing taste ... slightly fruity. Sweet aroma. Very smooth, not overpowering with the hops. Less bitter than I expected. Thumbs up.

12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date 12/04/2013 printed on the bottleneck. Finally getting around to trying this staple beer from Lakefront Brewery, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a murky burnt sienna orange with a finger and a half of fluffy khaki head. Nice head retention, and thin strands of scattered lacing. Looks pretty nice.

S - Smell is nice - caramel malt breadiness, green apple, fruity yeast must, light spruce / pine / grapefruit / herbal hoppiness, earthy and twiggy, with some tea leaf like sweetness.

T - Taste follows the nose - bready caramel malt, green apple, musty earthy yeast, herbal & piney, grapefruit bitterness, and some twiggy tea leaf sweetness.

M - Feel is crisp and clean, with lingering caramel malt, and green apple stickiness. Mildly resinous hop presence.

Overall, a solid drinking, easy going IPA with a moderate 6.60% abv, although it lies firmly within the realm of the typical IPA. Glad to have tried it, but there isn't much here to set it apart from the rest of the pack. Still, I would have it again.

Lakefront Brewery 'IPA' @ 6.9% , served from a couple of 12 fl oz bottles purchased for $2.60 each

A-pour is a pale gold from the bottle to a slightly hazy/murky gold in the glass with a small off-white head which is quickly dissapating leaving a minimal lace ring along the pint

S-hint of pine on the intial pour

T-big tasty American IPA , spicy on the lips

MF-? carbonation , seems to feel full bodied

Ov-ok beer , decent IPA , get past the slight funky carbonation/appearance and enjoy this beer
