Simply the best IPA. Itís not melt the enamel off your teeth, just perfectly balanced with a very nice hop character.

great india pale ale offering here. Enough hops for both the developed palate and for someone just starting to dabble in the IPA category. Pleasant aroma, good color, cool packaging which is what prompted me to buy the beer. i particularly liked the finish on this beer. Didnt leave me dry mouthed as some other ipas tend to do.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2008 OK. this is a really kick ass IPA! The beer is a perfect example of what an American IPA should taste like. It has a fantastic balance of malt and hop harmony. Huge bouquet! Aroma is very floral and piny from obvious dry hopping. The smell reminds me of camping in the Colorado mountains in the summer. Unfiltered straw color with a creamy head. Taste is like grapefruit with a dash of sugar. This beer is a great session IPA. I knocked back a six with a buddy very easily!

An excellent IPA from Lakefront in Milwaukee. Darker colored IPA, hops are abundant with a piney palate, vanilla undertone?. Top IPA out of Wisconsin, slightly better than New Glarus Hop Heary Ale and Ale Asylum "Ballistic". ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I totally disagree with this rating. I live near Milwaukee and this is my favorite Lakefront beer. Itís citrus notes are some of the best Iíve had in an IPA and it finishes smooth with a balance hoppy aftertaste. Try this one for yourself.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2009 12oz. Brown straw, slightly cloudy due to yeast at bottom of bottle. Apricot and lemon nose besides hoppy resin, little noticable malt. Flavor has golden grain in the middle somewhere, tingly hops first and a lasting bitter finish. Malt character is very subtle but a big part of the overall flavor. Complex and delicious! I just noticed that itís 7%, itís so balanced I never would have guessed that high. Would definitely go out of my way to buy. Yay beer! Update on 12/12 Draft at Lakefront. Definitely dryhopped. Certainly the most flavorful of their line. Balanced, malt is light but in the background giving hops center stage. Yay beer!

This is a great IPA. Nice caramel amber in colr with a thick frothy white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. The flavor is well balanced between the caramel malts and citric hops. Warm and creamy mouthfeel with a crisp finish. Tasty. Thanks Adam.

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into my go to Czechvar glass. Label indicates bottled in the first week of January. Pours a nice warm apricot color with thick cloud. Chunky sediment in the glass fights with the rising carbonation bubbles. Massive, hop oil head towers over the top of the glass with a moderate pour and leaves sticky clingy soap sud lace all over the top of the glass. Rings with each quaff, nice looking beer. Aroma is mild, but agreeable. Light tannic acid and hop tea aroma followed by chewy roasted caramel malt. Hop aroma finishes tropical fruity and reminds me of the smell of the skin of a pineapple. It amazes me that the aroma is still this fresh with a beer that is 5 months old. Flavor is bright hops on the front. Slightly salty and grassy, there is a little bit of fruit peeking in there. Middle brings a light malt flavor, grain is substantial, but the finish brings more hop. Bitter and clean, there is a lot of resinous chewiness in the hop flavor. Hops yield a bit at the end to a sweetish malt with a citrus lemon or grapefruit rind flavor, then a completely dry and clean bitter hop finish. Very nice. Mouthfeel is a tad thin, given the appearance and flavor, but good. The carbonation is adequate to hold up to the flavor of the beer. This is probably the achilles heel for this beer, not that it matters. Overall a very tasty IPA that I would seek out and buy in the future. I canít wait to get a fresher one. My Rdev is gonna hurt from this beer. Reviewed on: 06-24-2010

Great IPA from Lakefront Brewery, my overall fav from the brewery. Its not trying to be anything its not. Very crisp and clean, didnít notice any alcohol. Lots of good citrus in the aroma and taste. finishes bitter but not harshly. A favorite for drinking on a hot day.

Pours a hazy light amber with a thin head. The aroma is piney, citrusy and floral...sort of like if you were walking in a flower shop and they had spruce trees also. Taste upfront is a bouquet of flowers, the bitter hits the mid-palate for just a second, then moves to a hoppy, refreshing, un-dry finish. There is something about almost all of Lakefront beers: They are surprisingly refreshing.
