4.31/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

I enjoyed this on Tap at Mad Taco, served chilled in a pint.

The color is sunny like the name with golden and ambe hues with thick white head with visible carbonation in the body with fine bead and lace that sticks. The smell has a lot of orange peel scent with grapefruit juiciness and light dank herbal hop odors with slgiht grassy peppery note and mild alcohol. The feel is intense with hops and herbal resinous quality with moderately high carbonation making it feel light with dry strong lingering bitterness and gentle sweetness-very nice.

The flavor is pure hop goodness with lots of tangerine and grapefruity match by some pithy citrus and mild pine tinges which bring back more orange zest spiciness in repeated tastes. The flavor has some grassy bitter aspects toward the finish with dry herbal quality and some mild alcohol as it warms. Overall this is an excellent double IPA, lots of intensity and very bitter but does not cross over into punishing or excessive -very drinkable for 8%

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Sip of Sunshine pours a hazy yellow hue with a full figured, fluffy white head. Looks tasty.

S-Moderate-to-intense tropical hop aromas. A very Lawson-esque aroma. Floral and tropical. A bit of graininess.

T-The flavor is tasty but I'd like to get a little more 'pop' here. It just needs to be turned up another clicks on the dial. Tropical fruit medley that sort of just tastes fruity rather than specific fruits. Floral as well. Light bready and pale maltiness with some cooked grain flavor.

M-Surpriningly light for 8%. Almost thin. Moderate bitterness. Moderate carbonation as well.

O-A tasty treat for sure but I do find a few mostly minor gripes. Would gladly drink it again though.

Pours a beautiful yellow orange with a crisp thin head and moderate lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits and slight piney hop. Taste starts with some fruit notes; mango, pineapple, and tangerine came to mind, hop bitterness and another heavy layer of fruit come on in another wave. Moderate carbonation, and a fairly dry finish. LFL at its finest!
