3.8/5  rDev 0%

A - Yellow with a little green. I could care less about appearance, so unless it's really beautiful or really ugly, it will get the average of the other ratings. Who drinks a beer for appearance anyway?

S - Nice smell. A lot of citrus and pine.

T - Strong citrus and pine in the taste as well, but also strong lemon and bit grassy and astringent. My main knock on this beer.

M - A little too light for the grassy bitterness.

O - The regular Lakefront IPA is not as hop forward, but seems to balance out a lot more. Not sure where the lemon and grassiness is coming from, but if they could get rid that, it would probably be better than the regular Lakefront IPA because there are a lot of hops in this beer and a lot of good hop flavor. They use Citra so I'm not sure why I'm tasting more pine than fruit as well as where the lemon and grassiness is coming from. Maybe they used a yeast that is more suited for a higher ABV beer with more body and it gave too much lemon flavor (Conan can do that in lower ABV beers which makes me think they might have used a similar yeast.)

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.

2.05/5  rDev -46.1%

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.
