S-sweet, citrus aroma, solid.
A-never left the bottle!
T-more sweet than bitter but an excellent balance of flavour, the bitterness hints at the end but is very subtle and classy
M-oh so smooth, silky, very drinkable, perfect carbonation.
O-absolutely fantastic IPA, the extra seems appropriate for how extraordinary this beer is! Highly recommended.

Good sh*t. This is beer. It is a good beer. It is cheap, it is drinkable and this beer will get you drunk. My girlfriend had wine, I had this beer. I had others but this is the beer I liked most. I will order this beer again. It was a bit strong for my 8 year old, so we mixed it with soda water.
