NT-2 Extra IPA carries 101 hop bittering units contributed largely by the trio of clean, high-alpha American varieties Warrior, Magnum and Galena. Flavor- and aroma-hopping are exclusively with a combination of East Kent Golding and Styrian Golding. We then triple dry-hop the beer, again with East Kent Golding and Styrian Golding, one week each in three different conditioning tanks. Finally, we krausened at packaging to produce a secondary fermentation, maturation and natural carbonation in keg. NT-2 Extra IPA is available only on draught and only at the Nakameguro Taproom (although a couple brewer’s share kegs might be available at the Fishmarket Taproom also). Its release on Saturday, May 8 kicks off the 2-day Nakameguro Taproom 2-year anniversary celebration. Please join Sayuri and me there for a pint or two.

Tap at Bashamichi as Triple-dry European IPA. Slightly cloudy middle gold color. Fluffy, high head. Nice citrus-pineapple, very fruity and tropical aroma. Good bready malt flavor, but hops, honey, citrus, biscuits. Wonderful dry citrus flavor. Great stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2011 very citrusy, but solid malty backbone. Lots of tangerines, dry hopping. Hops are over the top. Very enjoyable for hop heads. Now called European IPA. Tasted at Bashamichi Taproom opening party. The beer has improved with age. Original rating of 3.9. New rating reflects combination of ratings amber golden color, tons of citrus, pine, lemons in the nose. Unbelievably dry mouth, one of the driest mouths I’ve had. Tons of hops with some crystal malts. The driest iPa in the world. With moderate hoppy finish. Just bizarre how dry and bitter this is. No idea why it European at 8% but this beer is awesome.
