1 of 900 bottles produced for the May 2014 Farmers Market.

Cloudy unfiltered peach colored nectar,1/2 finger of soapy white head upon a careful pour as suggested on the bottle.Moderate lacing in the Lawson's tulip.

Another Lawson's mango and herb bomb, with notes of peach also. A treat to take in the aroma before each sip,and even in between sips.

Flavor also outstanding: forget about the expected comparison to Double Sunshine, this one stands on it's own merits. The juicy mango and pineapple ambush your palate with an herbal quality that is undeniable. Enjoyable lingering bitterness without too many IBUs overwhelming your palate, and a relatively dry finish. Notable that the abv of 10.5% is masterfully hidden (unlike the bottle of Lawson's 6th Anniversary Peril IIPA that I had the other night).

Mouthfeel is medium and the carbonation is just right for the style.

Another masterpiece by Sean Lawson, I hope to see this one again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Cloudy and murky, although the first pour from the bottle was much clearer. Small white head. Leggy and a little bit of lacing. Wispy surface.

Smell - Lots of tropical fruit. Pale malt. A bit of doughy sweetness. A little bit of diacetyl.

Taste - Much better, but there's a little bit of diacetyl. Strong tropical fruit and orange hops. Hint of grainy malt. Moderate pale malt sweetness and the slightest bitterness.

Mouthfeel - A little astringent. Not very boozy and doesn't drink like 10.5%. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The diacetyl is very mild, so it doesn't kill it. Otherwise a good beer.
