A - A golden/orange color.Not too much head on my pour, but maybe I was being too careful.

S - Citrus/hoppy

T - It has the IPA bite, which is nice. Not as dominant and sharp as some of my other more-preferred favorites. It's more smooth, and I think that "casual" IPA drinkers would really like something like this. It's worth noting I had this from the bottle - I'd really like to try this on draft.

M - Thins is a good word to describe this. Not full at all, the texture of a light domestic.

O - I've had some "really good" IPA's, and I've had "good" IPA's. Right now, this one fits in with the latter. I do think that if I were to have this on draft it could be "really good". It's also worth noting that I'm drinking this after it was bottled over 3 months ago, so I owe it to Lakefront Brewery to try a fresh one. I'll definitely come back to this one at a later date.

A: Pours a somewhat cloudy orange/goldish color, had a nice one finger white head at the top and left a slight lacing around the glass.

S: Pine, honey, lemongrass, earthy nose, some caramel is also present and some grapefruit as well.

T: The taste follows the nose lots of grapefruit, and some pine and caramel notes throughout, some earthyness to it as well.

M: Warming, medium bodied, sticky and dry, and a good amount of carbonation.

O: Overall a good brew, not to bitter and good amount of flavors, well balanced. I feel like Wisconsin is stepping their game up when it comes to craft beer these days, good brew and well balanced.

This might be an older bottle so keep that in mind. It could be as much as a year-old these days.

Slghtly-hazy copper to amber pour, fair head, good lacing. Lots of chunky yeast when I tip the bottle in.

Biscuity malt over citrus to floral hops, somewhat subdued.

Blander flavor, thinner mouthfeel than nose promises. Somewhat dry finish. Still, good, solid drinkability.

Fine beer. Not worth going out of your way for but worthy of picking up if it's there.
