4.45/5 rDev +1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a Lawson's tulip glass at the Resevoir in Waterbury, VT.
Appearance - Pours a deep golden color with a solid inch of foamy head. This slowly dissipates. Decent lacing through the session.
Smell - A burst of hops, but not the huge tropical smells that a lot of Lawson's IPA's have. I am picking up on some sweet flavors, perhaps some caramel? I know it sounds crazy, but for some reason I keep on smelling slight hints of banana...
Taste - Very similar to the smell. A generous dose of hops are on the forefront. Picking up on slight hints of some citrus fruits and pine. The hops are balanced out with a sweet malt which is where I was smelling the caramel.
Mouthfeel - Perfect carbonation. A good bitterness that plants itself on your tongue. The sweetness cuts back some of the bitterness in the aftertaste.
Overall - Another excellent DIPA from Sean. Although not my favorite, this is definitely one to try if you have the opportunity.
Serving type: on-tap

Very unique malt bill. Stays juicy and creamy. Devastatingly drinkable and rich. I'm going to miss Vermont and Lawson's dearly :( How could so much great beer come from one area?

4.4/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a snifter glass.
Pours medium amber with low bubbly head. Very nice lacing and retention.
Smell is very nice, some sweetness and hoppy floral aromas.
Taste was very interesting, the taste of caramel was very present for me but not overly sweet. Mixed with the delicious blend of hops, this caramel/hop profile was very unique on my tongue.
Mouthfeel was slightly sweet and sticky.
Overall, delicious and very unique.
