3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. (Lakefront Brewery) Milwaukee, WI.
Clear amber colour with a small off-white head.
Aroma: Sweetish fruity and piney hops. Mild bitterness. Some maltiness. Quite nice.
Flavour: Sweet fruit and mild resin. Very mild bitterness. Malty body.
Uninteresting and too easy to be a good IPA.

Wow. This was a really tasty IPA. I feel like the "hoppy hour" atmosphere pulled this review up a bit but it was a well balanced and delicious.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught samples + full pints@source during & after brewery tour 23viii13. Somewhat roughish standard IPA with no real trademark hop or malt character, mid-heavy in palate and ABV (slight sting), some resin and bland citrus, just sessionable enough after a packed & pacy brewery tour.

I love IPAs, and this one is pretty good. Rich foamy head and lots of hoppy goodness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden with a robust, foamy, long lasting white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit, mango, a good amount of caramel, and herbal hops. The taste is big on a blend of pine, caramel, and mango. Herbal impressions are quite abundant as well It really doesn’t have much of a hoppy bite. For an IPA, it seems more flat. Medium bodied, oily in texture, mild in carbonation. This is a pretty solid beer. But there isn’t anything extraordinary to report.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a finger of foamy off white head. Aroma of faint citrus and piney hops. Taste follows the nose, with some sweet malts and moderate hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel is ok, nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle purchased at Four Firkins. Strong hop presence from the beginning. This one knows it’s an IPA and owns it. Golden color with orange hue. Engulfs the mouth with hops with a last second attempt to balance with a slight sweetness. A pretty good IPA when you’re searching for one in its pure form.
