Overall | From the Tank Ten Series, Lake Effect IPA is a recent addition to LCBO shelves. The haze within the glass, provides insight into the name of the product: it looks like the bottom of a lake. This is a fantastic IPA from Great Lakes Brewery (not so surprising, afterall Mike Lackey is the Hopfather in Ontario.) A fellow craft beer blogger described this as a ‘Double Crazy Canuck’, The Brew Head would have to agree with him. It’s a refreshing IPA for the winter, but it will warm you up with memories of summer. What a cruel joke, GLB. The bitterness is there but not forceful. This is a easily dangerous session brew at 7%. Yet another great brew from Great Lakes Brewery and Tank Ten Series. It would be a welcoming addition to the regular line-up.
