Inspired by the energy and audacity of the fixed gear courier, Lakefront Brewery ran smack into this arresting creation. 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!
