Half pint at the Euston Tap.

A: Golden, clear, small head, retention wasn’t that great, but had a decent amount of lacing.

S: A Cascade hop bomb, can be smelled from quite a way off.

T: Lightly diluted citrus cordial, fairly subtle for the high strength, slight booze burn at the finish, hints of cork, kept a good balance between sweet and bitter.

M: Light body, smooth texture, minimal carbonation.

O: Hid the booze so well, was actually refreshing and subtle, the ultimate higher alcohol beer for a hot day.

Right out of the gate this has to be one of my favorite IPAs and beers in general as the aroma jumps out of the bottle with loads of juicy citrus and tropical fruit hop tones with a bit of apricot. The Extra poured a deep golden with a lush white head. The taste exploded with fresh hops that were straight up citrus and tropical fruit. The more I drank it the more I detected apricot tones as well. It was a huge juicy and fruity hop monster that doesn't wear down your palate with bitterness but more of a sweet and fruity bite that is both well rounded and refreshing. What an exceptional beer and another well done IPA from Lagunitas.
