Life On Tap Episode #298: Xtra Gold

Dan opens Xtra Gold, an American Tripel from Captain Lawrence Brewing Company, as his ninth beer from the NYS Craft Beer Box.

Captain Lawrence Brewing Company Xtra Gold

STYLE: American Tripel
ABV: 9.3%
IBU: 45
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce cans, Draft (Past Seasonal)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can, website, and Untappd.


Medium golden with some yeast haze and a white, fluffy head with lacing.


Belgian Tripel yeast esters with banana on the back.


Esters lead, but the hops provide balance. The yeast profile continues with a hint of banana but has some other bready and sweet notes.


Full mouthfeel but the hops do not let it become too sweet or jelly-like.


This drinks way easier than the actual ABV, so be careful slamming these back. Cassoulet and other hearty, rustic dishes featuring beans, chicken and/or broth or some bar food.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
