Poured with a nice head that soon settled. Good clear amber color. Hoppy malty aroma that is true to style. Good palate. Flavor is good except for hint of solvent. Finishes like flavor in the solvent thing is still there. This one's a bit warm and that probably accounts for a bit of this.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass

A - Pours a light sun color with a slight hue of peach. Nice 2 finger white bubbly head and some lacing..

S - Light citrus and floral hops, with a bit of malt a sweetness to it. Maybe some pine hops.

T - Some floral and pine, citrus hop juice, with some malt and sweetness to it.

M - Light-medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. Easy drinking and refreshing.

O - It is a session IPA. These seem to bore me, but it wasn't bad. I should just stick to APAs.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.)

A. Slightly hazy. Dark straw appearance with a white two finger head.

S. Grain, dank pine hops, herbal pepper, hint of soapiness.

T. Nice interplay of bready grain and piney hops. Refreshing with just the right amount of lingering bitterness on the finish.

M. Actually has more body than one would expect for such a low ABV beer with a decent mouthfeel to boot.

O. This may be the best "session style" IPA I've tasted to date. This beer actually has more flavor than a lot of higher ABV IPA's on the market. If my choice is All Day, DayTime or Extended Play I would choose Extended Play without hesitation. I need to keep this on hand this summer. Well done.

Bottled on 04/22/14:

Pours slightly hazed golden with a foamy/creamy off-white head that stays around. Rings of lacing stick.

The smell is very robust - citrus and pine.

Tastes like a rich, hoppy, citrusy/grapefruity, piney/resinous, IPA with a balancing sweetness in the middle from a firm malty backbone. Finishes with a refreshing bitter dryness.

The feel is lighter for an IPA, as expected with more "sessionable" character and abv level. Refreshing.

This is a rich/robust IPA for a lower alcohol brew. Very easy to drink. Very hoppy, with a refreshing bitterness. An outstanding "session" IPA to say the least!
