Amazingly smooth and balanced, maybe one of my favorite beers ever. Literally not a hint of bitterness or rough aftertaste. Super piney, more like a great pale ale then an IPA. Maybe that's just because I'm so use to the world of doubles and triples and super hoppiness that we live in and have forgotten how great a simple IPA can be.

I've had this before, but just getting around to reviewing it now. Bottle from Warren Store, served nice and cold, poured into a Lawson's becher. Hazy amber color, topped with two fingers of frothy off-white head, which receded to a rocky layer of bubbles, leaving random sheets of lacing on the glass. Aroma obviously showcases Chinook, piney, herbal, and citrusy, with a bready malt backbone. The taste is similar, grapefruit pith, pine resin, herbal and leafy notes; bready pale malts in the background, keeping the beer fleshed-out but not too sweet. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel, assertively bitter, moderate carbonation. Very good overall. If you're following this with anything else, make sure you cleanse your palate, because these hops don't quit.

A- Has a deep burnt orange color with a off white pencil width head that separates quickly. Clean lacing all the way around the glass.

S- Has a big scent of melons up front which is followed by a light pine caramel.

T- huge earthy taste to start, hints of grass and fruit. Finishes with a great lemon taste.
It also has a woody cedar taste in the background through the whole sip.

M- The mouth feel of this beer is amazing. Its sharp and crisp with a medium body. Perfect carbonation that brings the taste buds alive and prepares them for the great flavors.

O- This beer is amazing, as with all Lawson’s beer that I have tried. I look forward to drinking this again.

Enjoy-

A: Amber in color with a beautiful creamy 2 finger head good retention and great lacing. Only minor complaint is not great clarity but thats ok.

S: Citrusy and grassy.

T: Dank. Bursting with pine and citrus - grapefruit hoppy goodness. The aroma is not as pungent as you'd expect from this tsunami of hoppiness. Some lingering bitterness on the back end.

D: Dry and lighter bodied.

T: This is one boldly hoppy IPA. Almost opposite from Double Sunshine in terms of taste from the hops - whereas that is the tropical west coast type IPA, this defines the east coast IPA profile.
