Cold Front Lakewood Brewing Co. Review

Overall Score 7.0 Cold Front is a bold IPA with great flavors and creativity (look at the appearance). The intense malt will limit the audience, but those that enjoy stronger tasting notes will rank this highly.


  • Price (6pack): $14
  • Style: IPA (80 IBU)
  • ABV: 7.5%
  • Brewery: Lakewood Brewing
  • Location: Garland, TX

Cold Front seeks to combine bolder, winter flavors with intense hops which are common from India Pale Ale offerings.


Overall Score: 7.0

Cold Front has mixed reviews, but this is a beer I enjoy. Since I provide the scoring system, I can ignore the naysayers on Untappd. I seek bolder flavors and Cold Front delivers in a strong way. The palate is intense with heavy maltiness and spices you expect in a winter offering. This is a creative beer, which is immediately noticeable in the darker coloring for an IPA. This is a perfect combination of a strong ale or amber and an IPA that has elevated hops. Cold Front is an uncommon mixture and is not for those with a weaker palate. If you’re trash like me and Oscar the Grouch, this is a beer you’ll enjoy. Cheers Degenerates!
