From the depths of outer space, comes (Extra) Terrestrial, a fortified imperial brown ale with a maximum payload of hops. We've taken our award-winning recipe for Terrestrial India Brown Ale and made it double, using twice as much roasted malt and more than enough hops to satisfy the most discerning hop-heads. This imperial brown ale clocks in at over 90 IBU, dry-hopped to create an intense flavour supernova of citrus and lemon. You can't escape this black hole of hops!
