The best beer ever. End of story!

I am a big IPA fan, and any time I have the opportunity to try a new one - I do. But I ALWAYS end up coming back to the Lakefront IPA.

The flavor and drinkability is exceptional and ever bottle from every pack tastes the same - GREAT!

I highly recommend this beer to anyone. I also recommend checking out the Lakefront Brewery tour (summer is best with the riverside beer garden open).

L: Pours a beautiful clean and clear orange with thick white head.

S: Rare hop combo that brings out the juicy, mouth-watering scent.

T: Smell melts into great flavor that was promised. Tingly hop burn throughout whole tongue. Little alcohol taste. Very hop forward with good malt support to make this a great IPA. Wonderful aftertaste - lingers minutes after.

F: Medium dry, smooth.

O: Love this one. Drink it now. I picked it up at the store on a whim. What a great whim for me.

LAKEFRONT IPA India Pale Ale / Lakefront Brewery

AROMA: Floral herbal with citrus – mellow, not a slap

COLOR: Amber haze

HEAD: Thin but lasting with lace (in style)

FLAVOR: Follows aroma prediction perfectly

MOUTHFEEL: Heavier malty body than expected – a welcome surprise.

An EXCELLENT IPA offering here from Lakefront Brewers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. An IPA of a very mature and a very solid character that is totally loyal to the categorical style of India Pale Ale. Everything you expect – with NO surprise. This IPA is ready to be served proudly in the kind of eating establishments that have wait staff captains, white tablecloths, silver and tables leased to motivated waiters...say a place like Nick's Fishmarket in Chicago.

If ANY of your friends OR you yourself – want to know where the core of the IPA style is – this offering is THE definition of an India Pale Ale. Keep this beer on your list to remind yourself of what a great IPA really is and where the center of an IPA's strengths really are.

Nice job Lakeland!

...too bad you're in Packer territory.
