Soo uhh... Yeah... This beer, well, uhhmm, uuhh, ok did I oversell the whole "I'm speechless" shtick? First of all, huge fuckin props to my boy MikeyV for hookin this GEM up. Where do I begin? Well, I can start by saying this beer was an extra in a trade for Heady Topper so you can imagine my palate is already biased with the Nectar of the Gods. To be honest, the initial taste is very similar to HT IMO. It starts with the ever so slightest bit of maltiness then travels into a perfect balance of an oh soooo smooth hoppiness that is so damned tasty it'll make you wanna slap yo mama!!!
The smoothness on the middle and finish of this beer is indescribable, it's just... Amazing.
Ahhh... I'm sorry, but I'm stickin to my guns, anyone who knows me knows very well how much I preach about the awesomeness and severely underrated nature of ohio beers, specifically our rare and semi-limited IPAs; Fathead's Headhunter, The Brew Kettle's White Rajah, and Columbus IPA. And alls I ever preach about is how Rajah is the best IPA in the world and I've had Pliny, Zombie Dust and many other delicious IPAs. The point is this trade showed me that Heady Topper is better than all those others beers and is one of the best IPAs I've ever had. However.... I'm gonna say it, here it goes, HT is one of the best but is still second to the one beer... the best IPA I've ever had.... The One and Only Chinooker'd!!!

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into an oversized tulip.
Pours a nice medium amber with lots of big frothy head with good retention.
Smells ridiculous. So hoppy. Maybe the most hoppy smelling beer I've smelled including Heady.
Taste is delicious. A nice balance of mild hop bitterness and floral and juicy notes.
A mild malt background that serves to support this hop forward beer.
Mouthfeel is balanced, not overly dry, not sweet.
Overall, maybe my second favorite Lawson's after Double Sunshine.
