Pure Milwaukee Genius Series 1: Made with three styles of fresh American hops and fruity ale yeast that requires greater fermentation, it finishes with a dark amber appearance, spicy hop flavor and bold, malty backbone. The punch this potent brew packs reminds us all that when you want to make a point, you’re better off making a statement.

Pours deep coppery with ruby highlights and 3-fingers of off-white head. Nose is toasty caramel malt, hops, brown sugar, spicy yeast, figgy fruit. Tastes very hoppy, with caramel malt, brown sugar, figgy fruit, port, berries, and some spicy notes. Palate is rich, complex, malty, hoppy, and fruity, with a nice balance. My 2 year old daughter smelled this and said, "Strawberry" Indeed.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUL 21, 2008
22oz bottle. Clear auburn with a two finger yellowish beige head, good retention. Resiny pine and spicy hops up front with some scorched caramel, brown sugar and raisins in the background. Flavor pretty well follows suitwith the pine, caramel and raisins dominating, and the addition of some woody notes. Semi-dry finish with bitterness peaking around a 4. Alcohol masked well until it warms up then it tastes like all of its 8%. Burps pine and pineapple. Smooth full body with light to moderate carbonation. Pretty good beer, though it seems a lot like many ASA?s I?ve had.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Bottle, courtesy sebletitje. Pours a reddish ruby color, with a fizzy white head, and a fair amount of lacing. Sweet floral piney hops in the nose, vanilla, and caramel. Hoppy flavors, with caramel malts, citrus, pine, some wooden character, with a smooth vanilla finish. Sticky mouthfeel, pretty refreshing considering the style. Really good.

I thought this was a pretty pleasant APA/type beer when I sampled it last week. It didn’t blow my mind, but it struck me as being assertively hoppy and well balanced. I’d happily have it again. It poured a dark amber color with abundant cumulus-like head. Aroma was pine-y and vaguely pineapple-y, with some astringent kick to it. Flavor was surprisingly malty for a beer of this type; the hoppiness was there but more in the background. I actually thought it could’ve used more hoppiness, but the flavor was by no means unpleasant. Mouthfeel was full without being cloyingly sticky. All in all a very nice brew, which I would recommend, but I think it falls a bit short of best in class in the American Strong Ale category. Still, I’ll buy it again..besides which it struck me as a bargain compared to what other comparable beers are going for these days. I bought this 22oz bomber at 3 Cellars in Franklin, WI.

I tried this on while on the Lakefront tour, and if nothing else had come out of that tour than the glass of amber, amber brew with a citrusy/ pine nose, it would have been well worth it. The palate was interesting. Toffee dancing with pine, cinnamon and cardamom against a fantastically yeasty base and lovely, fruity hops. The only negative on this beer? Too smooth, masking the alcohol. I did NOT drive home. :)

There is a lot of flaws in this beer, its mouth feel feels thinner than it should. The malts and hops are their and very potent yet an off-flavor that is hard to ignore, still worth your time.

The folks at Lakefront have really outdone themselves with this one. Pours amber with a light white head, hoppy with spices and maybe some vanilla. Caramel malt aroma giving a sweet sugary mouthfeel. Well balanced with the hop and yeast.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a large long lasting off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, a good dose of pine and citrus hops, and a hint of dark fruit. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium full mouthfeel with a moderate to strong amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. A big suprise from one of my least favorite breweries. A damn fine brew.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Bomber. Deep ruddy copper with a frothy almond colored head, leaving striped lacing. Orangey hop aroma with fruity notes--like cherry or fresh fig. Toffee malt flavor, but not too sweet. Citrusy and earthy hops in the balance. Kind of a waxy taste as well. Medium to full bodied. Pretty good, but no aspects which leave a lasting impression.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Pours a transparent dark copper with a good, spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of big, fresh piny resiny hops and caramel maltiness. Body starts with good fullness and sweet toasty caramely malt with a touch of light fruits and resiny bittering and flavor hops. Nicely balanced and quite drinkable.
