Had this beer last year and was pleasantly surprised. I believe last year there was much more citra. This year Lawson must have got a deal on summit hops or whatever the dominant hop in sip of sunshine is. It has that very vegetal catty taste. Last year was much more crisp and refreshing. Disappointing to say the least. If this beer only said otter creek on it, it would probably be 50% less in price. But behold the power of Lawson.

98? A 98?! Are you kidding me? This is PURE name recognition and hype to get a score so high. I respect what Lawson's is up to but this beer is just NOT good. Bittering is SO OFF and rough and its hot as hell. Found myself with a frown drinking it, especially at that price point. If its going to be more expensive than Heady it better be as tasty...not even close. Will never, EVER buy again.

This was flat out excellent beer. I could smell it as soon as I opened the bottle. It looked great and had a perfect head. The best part, of course, was the taste. Dank, fruity, very rich and no sense of the 8.1% ABV residing in that bottle. If I could get more I wouldn't hesitate to do so!
