A 22oz bomber poured into a DFH Signature Glass.

A: Slightly orange, staw with a thin white head.

S: Light citrusy hops, with a clear malt presence. Small hints of spice also, which was unexpected. Honestly, this is a very simple nose and not very impressive at all.

T: Upfront, there's very little flavor. Light citrus--specifically grapefruit. Midsip, light grain and biscuit malt, very boring. The finish is excellent, with strong bitterness and spiciness. Unfortunately, there's little flavor until you get to the finish, a result of the single hop approach.

M: Light, well-carbonated. Nice.

O: Very disappointed by this beer. I'm definitely ISO Double Sunshine, but I won't be coming back to Chinooker'd.

22oz bottle thanks to Mike, appreciate it man. Hazy orange color, good head. Aroma was slight pine and citrus but nothing exposive. Flavor was much the same, bitter, and then a mineral quality I did not like. Overall, eh it was ok. I'd revisit it once but I'm starting to wonder why Lawson's is so highly praised.

Picked up a bottle of this at Hunger Mountain Co-Op in Montpelier, VT. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear golden hue with a good two finger white creamy head that leaves tons of thick side lacing.

S - Barely any nose here. Super, super light grapefruit rind and pine with some slight malt sweetness.

T - Some nice malty sweetness intermixed with very strong bitterness. There is a slight floral flavour, no real citrus for me. Maybe even a slight, very faint earthy onion like taste right before the beer get VERY bitter.

M - Mouthfeel Is nice for an IPA. Solid carbonation and a very nice bitter finish.

O - Overall this was a good beer just the lack of nose really didnt help this one out. I dont mind the lack of malts or the bitter finish, thats fine, just with I could get a flavour aside than bitter.

Small pour at the Vermont Brewer's Festival on 7/21. Waited about 30 minutes in line for this sample.

A- After waiting in line to get to the Lawson's table, this beer looked like heaven. It was my first sample of the night and knowing Lawson's reputation, I fully expected it to be the best.
S- Grapefruit. So much grapefruit.
T- I hoped it would follow the nose and give me a strong citrusy flavor. Unfortunately, this tasted exactly the same as how mowing the lawn smells. If you're a goat and enjoy eating grass, this is probably for you. It was way too piney and grassy for me, especially after getting my hopes up with the aroma.
M- Just fine, nothing special about it. Not over-carbonated but certainly not flat.
O- I'll give this a 3.5 just because the aroma was so wonderful. The taste wasn't my preferred style for an IPA but I definitely respect the craftmanship that went into this brew.

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

Appearance: clear, orange-brown, 1/4 inch head

Smell: floral hops

Taste: floral hops

Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, very light bodied, slightly bitter overall, however there is some unlaying sweetness, smooth

Drinkability: A good but not great very floral IPA. This one was a bit unbalanced and a bit too much on the sweet side. Would not be the first IPA I would get, but it does go down fairly easily.
