(reviewed from notes)

Very citrusy hop flavors abound in this beer. It seems rather hoppy and unbalanced for an APA (I suppose this is the "extra" in the title). It has a certain sweetness to it that meshes really well with the hop character but doesn't really temper the hop flavors with a malty balance. Certainly an interesting take on the APA as well as a very crisp and sessionable beer. Certainly worth trying if you find yourself in the southern states that Sweetwater distributes to.
