4.46/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle in to pub glass , kind of a hard pour but only got a 1 finger head that disapeared pretty quick. Minimal to no lacing. A nice yellowish copper color

Sweet hoppy smell , not much malt in the smell , just about perfect for this style

The mouth on this beer is a little heavy for the style , but with just enough carbonation for it to really be a homerun

The taste is hops and more hops. Not too citrusy not too earthy , starts off hoppy , ends hoppy with just the right amount of hops in the taste

Overall this beer is a really good example of an American IPA , lots of the flavor profiles of hopslam or two hearted in my opinion , call me crazy but I taste it in there

Lakefront IPA pours a hazy amber color into the glass with a moderate, rocky head on top. The foam dissolves slowly leaving behind a netted pattern of lace on the glass.

The aroma is very faint, but I detect some citrus, pine and caramel malt.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth with mild carbonation. The flavor leans more to the sweet malty side than the bitter hop side. It starts with sweet caramel malt and a little bready pale malt flavor. Towards the end the bitter hops move in with some grapefruit citrus, pine and a hint of pepper. The bitter finish and some of the sweet malt flavor lingers after each sip.

This is a very easy drinking beer with a great mouthfeel. I almost thought it was a session beer until I saw that it's nearly 7% abv. However, for an IPA I thought the hops would be more pronounced. This review is based on a bottle that is 8 weeks old and was stored in refrigeration.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance: rusted orange with very minimal head upon an aggresive pour and no lacing at all.

smell: piney hops, grapefruit, citrus, with the bitterness really being upfront.

taste: follows the nose but in a more subtle and subdued way. Really blends together nicely to have a nice crisp, bitter bite to it in a very refreshing way.

mouthfeel: as was said before, crisp and clean. smooth with good carbonation and medium body. very enjoyable.

overall: a good IPA overall. good representation of the style

12 ounce bottle -> World Market tulip glass

This beer pours up a very hazy apricot color with a minimal head, no retention, but some lacing left behind. Nose is citrus, pine, and biscuit. Taste is very citrus grapefruit, with a powerful spicy hop finish. Mouthfeel is kind of spicy and nice. Pretty good beer that I can recommend.
