3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
They call this a red IPA at the brewery.... um no. But seeing its an amber. I can believe that. All the elements of an amber. Nose and flavor is amber grain with a hop balance. It is a bit hop forward. At most its an Amber Pale Ale ... which well makes no sense. Lasting head. Ronritter (838) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2017

Pours reddish brown with white head. Nose is caramel and taste has some hop bitterness. Some spice and dryness in the aftertaste. Dandm (125) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2017
Bottle at Town and Country in Sydney.
Hazy copper pour. More Amber than IPA with sticky sweet honey and roasted flavours coming through. Some bitterness and citrus in the finish. Pleasant but not an IPA. akoeninger (766) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Copper ale. Malty, herbal hops. Smooth, caramel malt and some hop bite. Medium body

Amber ale? This "IPA" was served to me in an Atlanta steakhouse as a local brew. Copper-coloured, resinous, pine needles and grapefruit, dried apricots and a touch of caramel. Maybe a double IPA even, but nit an amber ale, neither a Georgia local brew. Aggiebob (1211) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle. Amber in color with a beige head. The Hoppy aroma has notes of pine and citrus. For an IPA it was mildly bitter. FunkyF (1268) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2016
Flaska på Thunder Bay Grille Pewaukee. Dimmigt rödbrun med beige skum. Lätt fruktig doft. Något klen maltbas med beska som slår igenom. StoutBeerReviews (208) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2016
tastes like a mild ipa but with a darker color. It has a good bit of malt and a nice creamy mouthfeel too. Never had a red IPA before, so its got a weird appeal to it. Tezminator (275) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2016
Nice aroma of caramel and pine resin. Beautiful reddish copper colour. Nice head. Bold taste of caramel and spruce as well as weak grass and toasted ... something. Bitter finish from the hops and a proper alcohol kick in the taste as well. One of the better beers I have had recently. Another excellent IPA from the USA. Nice work.
