Lakefront Brewery Inc: American Red IPA
Inspired by the energy and audacity of the fixed gear courier Lakefront ran smack into this Red IPA. Fixed Gear is a big, bold American red IPA. It pours a glaring crimson tone with a rocky white head and a brilliant floral-citrus aroma, thanks to an aggressive Centennial, Cascade, and Chinook dry hopping. Its immodest malty spine and intrepid caramel flavors flavors blow in via gratuitous amounts of 2-row pale, and dark caramel malts. A balanced citrus bite comes from the Chinook and Cascade hops followed shortly by mild, fruity esters from the ale yeast. This one’s got an attitude! The hop flavor in Fixed Gear mingles well with Indian spices like tamarind, coriander, and cardamom; try it with tandoori chicken or pork vindaloo with rice on the side. Also goes great with grilled burgers, steaks, or baby back ribs.
