4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow -- can you say "over-hopped"?
This Extra IPA goes overboard with the hop aroma and flavor, nearly negating any malty tones in the beer. But is that a bad thing? Not in this case. The bitter citrus hops are like a depth charge and combined with a moderate carbonation -- it’s an all-hands-on-deck experience that makes one of the best commercially-available beers.
This isn’t an IPA for landlubbers; its in-your-face experience and high alcohol (7.2%) will take you to Davey Jones’ Locker rather quickly if you’re not careful.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of malt, caramel, tropical fruits, citrus, some pine, hops. Flavour is malty and fruity, a bit sweet, with a medium bitter finish. Very balanced and full of flavour, could almost qualify as a Double IPA.

An overall great beer from a solid brewery. More hoppy than the pale ale with nice body and finish.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent for being in a bottle. Not a strong scent. Does not taste like an ipa, more like a pale ale. Not a very complex flavor but a tasty one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer had a very pleasant but strong hoppy taste. It had notes of caramel on the aroma. Didn’t taste like it was 7.2% which may end up being dangerous.

Goût de pamplemousse, malt, sucré léger, amertume moyenne. Carbonatation moyenne-élevée, corps moyen. Une bouteille probablement trop vieille. À revisiter.

Wow. Bought a case at a Publix by Sanibal Isalnd, FL and what a treat. Great flavor, thickness, hoppiness - it’s all going on. Not a good beach beer unless you can keep those badboy bottles in a lot of ice.
