Still too malty, not much in the way of hops and the balance is meh.

Picked up a Lakefront mixed 12-pack. The best by date on the bottle states it's good for another two months. Poured right from the fridge into my Red Eye pint glass.

L: Pours a somewhat hazy straw color with about an inch of eggshell head that dissipates pretty quickly but leaves decent lacing on the glass. Moderate visible carbonation and a little bit of particulate floating in this one.

S: Big floral and citrus hop notes in the bouquet--some definite grapefruit coming through, as well as lemon and orange. Some cracker malt notes, along with something just a bit earthier. Nice nose.

T: Cracker-like malts are right at the front. Just a bit of tartness begins to appear there, and increases throughout the taste. The hop flavor is immediately present: citrus fruit in a big way, although the specific notes are more difficult to recognize than they were in the aroma--grapefruit is probably still the most prominent. The middle sees the citrus hop flavor at its peak, with the malts still taking backseat. The close is citrus zesty and clean-finishing, with a very moderate amount of bitter hop flavor in the back or aftertaste.

F: This one is one the lighter side of medium-bodied. Smooth, effervescent, a little bit creamy in the middle, and decidedly clean-finishing. It feels just the slightest bit watery, but this actually probably improves its drinkability as a session IPA.

O: This is a really great session IPA. It provides some of the most satisfying hop flavor and aroma that I've found in the style. This one can definitely stand in the same company as Pinner, All Day, and Go To. This just might become my regular summer fishing beer. I definitely recommend.
