look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Chrome yellow with hints of burnt umber when held to the light. A full two fingers of soapy head that dissipates to sparse lacing as it fades. Smells of elegant musk, peppercorn and Vidalia onion crackling on a nice ribeye, pine needles and lemon peel. As the wind blew, I could smell the scent of Salma Hayek's hair. Taste follows but offers the subdued taste of cara cara, and an even fainter hint of tobacco leaf. The feel is full and voluptuous like a nursing mother. Sean did a masterful job of creating a session beer that feels like a standard IPA without the abv. Some brewers are gifted with everything that they do; Lawson's Finest fits that bill and then some. I feel so alive I could sh*t myself. On second thought, I'll just kiss myself. What a super freakin' session. Get u some! (793 characters)

Fairly clear IPA for the NE. Decent nose presence of tasty hops. Upfront taste is smooth and hoppy, but the finish takes sharp turn to bitter I didn't expect in a sessionable IPA. Not perfect, but enjoyable nonetheless. (221 characters)

Strong lemon flavor is too powerful during early quaffs; settles down as get further into the beer. (99 characters)

This review comes with a caveat: I drank a Super Session immediately after a Sip Of Sunshine; poor tactical planning. Anyway, a very gentle hop experience and smooth crispness. Best enjoyed after warming a bit. (210 characters)

Drinks like a stronger IPA. A little sweet with the right amount of hops. Have a few on a Saturday afternoon. (111 characters)

Perfectly clear golden brew; head retention is merely OK.

Very dank aroma, nearly overpowering so, which translates to the palate as well. Dank hop profiles are often quite juicy as well, but in this case, it's more herbal than anything else.

More body and flavor than most session IPAs, but it's still fairly light. Certainly drinkable. (339 characters)
