4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured with a nice head that soon settled. Good clear amber color. Hoppy malty aroma that is true to style. Good palate. Flavor is good except for hint of solvent. Finishes like flavor in the solvent thing is still there.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear pale amber, small head. Citrusy dill aroma. Mid dry with light-medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Hop driven with lychee, grapefruit and dill. Notes of caramel. Balanced bitter finish. Another solid Lakefront offering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Yardhouse in West End. Pint glass. Early onset effervescence giving way to a pretty clear copper color. Minimal head. Aroma is faint with notes of pine and citrus. Taste is also mild as expected from a session IPA. Good citrus characteristics a base of hoppy resin notes. Bitterness takes over midway through consumption. Oily mouthfeel. Pretty light and bright. Makes you realize this is what you should drink at 4% rather than a Miller Lite.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours two fingers of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is bright lemon and grapefruit.
The taste has a moderate bitterness, the middle is a bit of a crash of bitter and sweet, but still fine.
The texture is crisp.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/19/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, pineapple, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.3%. Overall this is an excellent session IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4/17/15. 12oz bottle shared during a VORLAUF meeting, I think. Golden orange pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Light aroma, grainy, hints at caramel, some citrus and grassiness. Decent flavor, mild bitterness, doughy, citrus, grassy. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Clinton Street Social Club. I like Lakefront’s beers, but this one was fairly undrinkable to me. Unbalanced and harsh. We didn’t finish it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours hazy darkish gold with a white head. Aroma of light stone fruit and mild caramel. Med minus body. Flavor is not all that flavorful. There’s fruit and caramel, and the bitter is present, but though the impression is rather strong, it seems lacking in flavor. Still, I’d drink it, if I needed a beer.
