This IPA was the perfect end to a long boring day of work. The hop flavor dominated the bready malts, but it was still enjoyable. jw0406 (1275) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2011
12 oz bottle pours a dark amber color with a thick white head. Aromas of pine, citrus and some malt in the background. An oily mouthfeel with a dry finish. Very good. beerskinner (24) - North Dakota, USA - APR 10, 2011
The hops don’t strike the palate like the ipas I drink from time to time, but the good solid taste of hop flavors persists.
The pine is there, but it is less citrusy Has a good aroma and the malts are accented by the hops.
I do like this brew and will buy more in the future.

12oz. bottle. Pleasantly hoppy with a citrus flavor. A bit more thickly carbonated than I prefer, but still a wonderful flavor, very sessionable. A quality IPA that’s easy to find is a plus, got it right from my local Kroger. Mario61Aler (21) - Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2011
Strong Hop odor upfront that faded and then a note of grapefruit was detected, interesting!
poured a light amber with a small white head that faded to a thin lacing
A light hoppy taste that was balanced by a subtle sweetness
A light bodied ale that had some carbonation, cleaned the palate well but didn’t leave a long lasting dryness, just made you want to drink another.

12 oz short fat bottle. Smells really good and the taste is above average. Lots of fruity hop notes. Well done for an IPA. B+ fugitive (2005) - Athens, GREECE - APR 10, 2011
Bottle. Color orange with small white head. Aroma hop, citrus. Taste hop, citrus, bitter. Good balanced beer. bseribeer (128) - Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2011
Well done Sierra Nevada. Pours amber with a light haziness and a foamy white head. Nose is strong, but not overpowering of hops, with citrus. I expected a BANG of bitter hoppiness, with the title ’Extra’ IPA, but thought it was rather subdued, in a fantastic way. Perfect bitterness and hops taste, combined with an easy, lightly carbonated body on palate made this a premium brew. Easily shot up to one of my favorite IPAs now. kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - APR 6, 2011
Pours a hazy orange amber with a moderate creamy color foam head. Aroma is hoppy citrus with perhaps a touch of pine. However it’s not an overbearing aroma - fairly light on the nose. Taste is a nice combination of hoppy bitterness and citrus along with some sweetness. As with the aroma, nothing overpowering in the taste. All in all, a quite tasty and easy-drinking IPA. pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2011
Aroma: Floral, citrus and...hay, maybe? It’s all pretty weak, though.
Appearance: Sparkling orange amber with a nice, white head.
Taste: Heavy bitterness upfront that fades to a balanced sweetness.
Palate: Full body, heavy carbonation, crisp texture with a decent finish.
Overall: Well crafted and developed, but I’m not blown away.
