This is the most frequent craft beer I drink so I will try to be as objective as possible.

L: vibrant orange, amber colors, I love how the lacing patterns the glass

S: explosion of hops blending with citrus gives a stunningly pleasant aroma

T: piney upfront as it curls into a grapefruit-forward citrus. Finish has lemon, a touch of malt, and definite bitterness

F: med-high carbonation dances on the tongue

O: a top beer for me (I admittedly live 7 blocks from the brewery) but as an IPA guy I truly believe it stands up to the IPA heavyweights!

How did I miss this? I'm with A Bros on this title IPA. Excellent, Try 24.
Although down the center of A IPA, this stands out for fresh and memorable high notes and quaff-ability.

A ) begins with a hazy old copper-golden body that carries a finger of persistent head that coats with lace and surmounts the body with a lasting island.

S) Pungent aromas of orange zest, juicy citrus flesh, with cut grass, light alcohol, esters, and caramel.

T) Citrus, juicy, orange zest, pineapple and mangos see-saw with the white-cracker malt flavor. Finishes with lingering bright bitterness.

F) Creamy and malty, finishes crisp and dry into a bitter and warming finish.

O) Better and more complex as it warms. Try 24.

Little to no hops. Almost lager like. Finish is dry but unflavored. Wouldn't do it again. Retasted 1/9/17: much more positive impression. Would probably rate a 3.25 this time. Will wait for a 3rd tasting in MKE b4 changing my rating. Also, avoid Lakefront Fixed Gear Pale Ale. Had it immediately b4 Lakefront IPA & think the Fixed Gear being so bad may be responsible for my improved impression of their IPA.
