Beer #21 – Lakefront IPA

Wisconsin, the home of the brewers, and I don’t just mean the baseball team.  It’s got a LOT of breweries, some of them making very good beers.  And so we dive back into IPA season with the IPA from Lakefront Brewery.

Lakefront IPA, Lakefront BreweryWisconsin, United States of A
American India Pale Ale, 6.9 % ABV

Aroma: Great hop aroma, with hint of grass and malts.

Appearance: Pours golden/copper in color, clear, with an off-white head of foam.  Nice lacing on the glass.

Flavor: Nice hop profile, piney essence to it that is balanced on the end with malts and a trailing very nice bitter hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, coats the mouth well with nice carbonation that I’d expect from an IPA.

Overall: Pretty solid IPA.  The nose doesn’t linger too strong, the alcohol is present but not overwhelming.  For a hop head, it’s got a great profile and solid taste.  A very nice/great example of the American IPA style.
