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.

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

Favorite local IPA. Delicious on tap, not as good from bottle.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass.

A-Hazy, orange with a thin layer of suds which lingered.

S-Pine, citrus, bitter orange

T-Same as smell with a nice, light caramel sweetness on the finish. Good balance.

M-Feels a little thin. Cleans out pretty quickly with some residual bitterness. A good drinker for sure.

O-I've had this before and didn't think it stood up. However, today, it's hitting the spot. Bottled ab out 2 months ago. Perhaps last time was too old.
