Not a fan of this beer. I like everything else that Lawsons does but they missed the mark on this one.

A - Pretty nice looking IPIA. Creamy head pours a finger and a half high. Nice retention and lace. Light haze on a dried apricot body.

S - Super fresh hop character. It's like you rubbed them in your hands right off the vine. Net herbal with hemp, cilantro, fresh grass, orange, ruby red grapefruit, and white bread.

T - Sweet and smooth up front with white bread crust, and biscuity malt. Quickly turns aggressively bitter with citrus pith and wax. Honey and cilantro through the finish.

M - Full and creamy for the style.

O - Great body, great nose, and nice flavor profile.

Cloudy orange, small off white head that fades to a ring and leaves some chunky lacing. Big grapefruit nose, pulpy citrus fruit and a touch of sweetness in the nose. Taste is a big hit of grapefruit rind and pulp, tangerine, light malt sweetness, touch of floral character and grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Lower carbonation initially, medium body, then it pops with stronger prickly carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall a really good DIPA but a bit one dimensional on the flavor profile.
