December 31st 2011 update.
Filled to capicity in the one litre 'Stein of Truth' this beer revealed a previously undisclosed vibrant and succulant hoppy tang which was hidden in mortal drinking vessels.
More balanced and visually lustier in a light reddish amber light as well.
Drank this paired with Titan IPA. Thanks to russpowell for his advice.
Deep dense thick rocky head which leaves some wonderfully frothy lacing all over the glass from beginning to end.
Reddish golden in colour with a deep dominant piney hoppy smell. An intense taste without being truly over the top. Very husky and bitter with elements of raw grapefruit. Full and heavish on the tongue but surprisingly also spritzy.
A bit heavier than expected from an IPA ('extra' or otherwise) and while hugely enjoyable I would have liked to have experienced some more complexity.
More Grizzly Adams than Last of the Mohicans.

4.29/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Rich cooper color, clear. A creamy beige two finger head when poured; dies down relatively fast leaving an thin uneven coating of foam on the surface of the beer and lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell: Slightly sweet and citrusy. Mild aroma of malt. Smooth hops. An extremely slight pine scent. Nice and enticing.
Taste: Citrus (grapefruit. lemon) without being acidic. Delicious mild hoppy flavor for the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light body. Lots of mild carbonation. Ever so slight dry finish.
Overall: An excellent IPA. I would gladly drink this again. The perfect amount of hops with a delicious flavor. Refreshing.
Serving type: can
