Taste: citrus, grapefruit, herbal, grassy, salty notes. bitter floral hops. Big lemony grassy herbal hop nose. Golden yellow hue, mostly unfiltered, tall white soapy head. Medium body. Maybe can had been in the store too long?

Um... this beer is NOT 3.5% ABV. 18th Street's own site says: "Please join us as we welcome back 'Lake Street Express', ... coming in at 5.1%." At least as of 11/2018.

5/30/18 can, same as Adjunct-Hippie below. This a perfect interjection between a couple 10% IPA's. Fresh taste is earthy/hoppy with some malt in the background...excellent to refresh between the heavier IPA's....

12 oz can dated 5/30/18. Fressssssh!

Nice hay-blonde color with about 20% transparency and a frothy head of 2 fingers, receding to a thick layer of sparse head. Nice lace left on the glass in streaks.

Nice bright aromas of pineapple and orange, nice floral presence as well. Also smells like a homebrew store. Tons of unique dry grass and dry, kilned bready malts as well. Really cool. Never smelled a bucket of grains in a beer glass before. Sweet.

Flavor brings both floral and fruity character forward in a beautiful marriage. Hops burst with evergreen, mango, banana, and pineapple, with nice hits of floral and biscuit. Dry grain and dry grass fade out the profile with lingering notes of banana peel and clementine.

Feel is crisp, not clean, but slightly chalky and resinous. Still gets a 4 by me though, as the carbonation is like tons of angry ants swarming the palate but somehow you just love it.

Overall, this beer kicks ass. Loving all of these IPA's I'm trying lately. Really good stuff. All this flavor in 3.5% ABV? Unmatched. Just amazing.

On-tap served in a stemmed glass at Mikkeller, Bangkok.

Clear golden yellow color, it comes with pretty thick white frothy head that retains itself with pretty good retention before sinking to a long-lasting bubble sheet atop and leaving lots of sticky lacing patch here and there.

Hop aroma of citrus, tropical, melon, pineapple, ripe mango, jackfruit, earthiness, and some spice while malt with its bread and caramel candy.

The taste is led by earthy hop also with its spice, citrus, and tropical fruit. Malt is there in the undertone with notes of biscuit and subtle caramel. The end is quite clean with only slight hop bitterness.

Light body with good crispness and lively carbonation to generate smooth mouthfeel and refreshing touch through the palate, finish is dry and clean.

Very easy drinkable and good sessionable brew, it is light, crisp, clean, and refreshing.
