Hoppy beers with a malty backbone almost always sit well with me. This one didn't disappoint. Great head retention and substantial lacing on the glass. Very hazy and deep amber color. The smell is good and I pick up some grapefruit, but for a beer that's supposedly heavily dry hopped there isn't much there. Maybe the keg isn't as fresh as it should be. However the taste makes up for it with a very bold dose of crystal malt (without going overboard) layered with grapefruit and some spicey notes. The mouthfeel is surprisingly silky. There is not a ton of carbonation in this one but I think it goes well with the flavors. Overall I'd definitely have this one again sometime and would recommend it to any hop heads who like some balance in their beer.

Lakefront's best selling beer for a reason. A great crisp taste with notes of pine and apple in it. Plenty of hops but not too hoppy.
This beer can be found in 38 states and 7 countries. An overall great beer, I might be abnormally high on it because I tasted it directly from brewery. Nevertheless, a great beer and definitely recommend.

Another fine beer from Wisconsin. Although I've spent most of the summer sampling Wisconsin/Minn. IPA this is a nice refreshing high alcohol Red. Has a slight bitterness, but Lovely taste that is super smooth--this one is fine, fine, fine---well done, Lakefront!
