12 oz bottle stil had a thin coat of sediment on the bottom after a full pour. Th lightly hazy, golden-amber body wa topped by a very good off-white head that left decent lacing. Plenty of fruity-herbal hoppy aroma, and nearly as much in tasting. Still, with a light body that is noticeably light for an IPA, this drinks like the session IPA it is. Recommended as such, or as a hoppy APA.

11/30...pours cloudy dark bronze, creamy white foam thick and clingy. Light soft pine nose. Soft malt taste, light rind, grapefruit, pine taste, Subtle hop bitter that stays smooth and never strays.

12 oz bottle poured into a Lakefront imperial pint.
4.2% ABV, Bottled 04/22/14

A - Dumped right into the pint, a little haze is left in the goldenrod-colored beer, slightly clouding up the warm appearance but, it's wonderfully formed white head coats the pint in lace while retaining that volatile hop nose.

S - Like a good album, Extended Play's side A opens powerfully; bright and citrusy hoppiness explodes into the nose with force, showcasing lemon cookies, swirls of floral character, and summer-like suggestions of fresh cut lawn. EP's pale malt quality is barely perceived outside of the bready aspect of the lemon cookie aroma, which leaves it hoppy leaning.

T - Through side B, Extended Play keeps spinning it's hop forward quality with notes of lemon rind, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, and a lightly grassy finish that all but drowns out the sound of cereal grainy pale malt in the background.

M - The bright citrusy hop character of Extended Play helps keep the perception of the body that much lighter, not that this extremely drinkable beer needs any more help in that department. Finishing with a delicate and dry kiss of bitterness, this India Session Ale is as refreshing as they come.

O - Lakefront's take on the ever-expanding "session IPA" or India Session Ale category is no one-and-done; like your favorite album, Extended Play can keep spinning all through the night without a skip. Hop forward but not exhaustively so, its bright and citrusy characteristics balance well against the submissive pale malt for a refreshing and thirst quenching experience that will go well for any occasion, especially one of Lakefront's silent discos.

Not at all impressed, and baffled that this beer is deemed an IPA. It's a pale ale, and a weak one at that. At approximately 4% potency, and hardly any hop to note, I wouldn't recommend this beer to anyone. Inflated price tag on a poor beer was a double whammy.
