COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Milwaukee Genius Series 3: Inspired by the energy and audacity of the Fearless Fixed Gear Courier, Lakefront ran smack into this arresting creation. It’s RED, it’s BOLD and it tastes DAMN GOOD. We could go on and on about it, but the fact is, you have one in your hand right now, so crack it open yourself. This one’s got an ATTITUDE.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Taster at Standard Market in Westmont, March 10, 2012. The server told me about using Centennial and Cascade, and this does have a nice hoppy smell. A little cloudy reddish brown, ring of foam. Nice big hoppy taste, too. Malts just slightly in the background. Stands out differently than an IPA, just a nice hoppy red ale. 7-4-7-4-15<hr> Sample from the 2011 Midwest Beer Fest that’s still on my phone. Sample poured from a bottle with a nice short layer of foam, a little hoppy smell. Just a straight hoppy beer smell. A little fruity backing from a warm ale fermentation. A nice combination that I haven’t had from Lakefront in the past few years. A good hoppy red ale with caramel malts. Quite frankly one of the better Lakefront beers. 6-4-7-4-14. So both rating total 3.7. Glad to see I was consistent.

It's okay...strong taste which is good. This brewery doesn't seem to excite me much.

Amber pour with a thin white head. The flavor is mild and seer with a good hops balance. Very session able. It's good but it wouldn't stick out in a line up.

Very nice drink, smooth on the palate, not overly bitey. I think th e rye really rounds this beer out. I will definitely be buying more in the near future.

574deadzone (1338) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Listed 6.8% ABV, now billed as "American Red IPA." Pours a nice looking crimson to maroon with a decent khaki head that settles to a thick ring and leaves some awesome splotchy, soapy lace ropes. Nose involves dark red fruit, caramel, pine, spice, underlying apricot and grapefruit, some toast, some light chocolate. Decently sweet, pretty bitter. Medium bodied, fairly oily, decent action, a touch creamy, finishing toward dry with leafy herbal hops. Nice brew, definitely drinkable, lots of cool things going on.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. This was a superior red IPA that belongs in the upper echelons of brewing and pale ales. Simply delicious!
