No idea why I never entered these full notes off of my phone. Consumed a whole four pack with friends over about a week. I was very happy to see Lawson's team up with Otter Creek. Notes a few months old.

A- 12oz bottle poured to two goblets with an orange-light amber body. Creamy and frothy white head rises to about two fingers with good retention. Lacing has thick webs and spottiness on a large portion of the glass.

S- Pretty close to equal mix of tropical stone fruit and citrus hops with oranges, grapefruit, mango and apricot coming to mind. Some pine and floral in the background of this pungent hoppy aroma. Slightest bit of light cracked grains in the backdrop.

T- Follows the nose very well with the citrus picking up a bit on the taste buds. Grapefruit, orange, pine, floral, mango, stone fruit and herbal hop juice. Slight sweetness and fresh grain there just to provide a resting place for the hops.

MF- Medium bodied with a creamy and somewhat chewy texture for the style. Carbonation is moderate-high and helps the hop oils get to the taste buds. Bitter finish.

Another great VT IPA but this time it actually made it to MA in some form. The four pack was a bit highly priced but I would probably get it again because it was mighty tasty.
