One of the finest beers I have ever tasted. We came up for the lawsons anniversary and tried many of the best beers in the world at hill farmstead and alchemist. I have now had all of the top 10 except VBDL. I think this is my new favorite. Sunshine is the best of the 8 or so lawsons I tried this weekend.

A: Golden slightly hazy beautiful white head nice lacing

S: Just an overwhelming amount of citrus and tropical scents in the nose this jumps out at you

T: Kiwi, melon, grapefruit, berries just every tropical fruit you can imagine soothing your taste buds before fading to a biscuity refreshing malt character and very little bitterness.

M: Medium bodied and fairly dry

O: World class. Had this just before Heady and preferred this. Just an incredible beer. Preferred by me over Pliny as well.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

a - Bomber to snifter, 2 finger white head left some soapy lacing, color is orange/yellowish , a bit cloudy

s - citrus and tropical fruits combine with some resinous hop notes to make a wonderful aroma

t - the taste starts off with similar flavors as were present in the aroma, a bit of malty sweetness comes through but is balanced out with a hoppy bite that sends you off with a lingering bitter finish

m - great carbonation and a medium to strong body, dry finish

o - A world class beer no doubt Many thanks to @dwduncan2 for hooking me up with this! I am definitely glad I got to try this and would recommend seeking it out to try at least once. However, don't know if I personally would go through much trouble to acquire again, whereas I will definitely be seeking out Heady Topper many more times!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Hazy golden appearance

Smell - Bright, clean citrus nose

Taste - Nice citrusy hop forward taste with a great malt backbone

Mouthfeel - Clean and concise presence in the mouth

Overall - This is a beer I've only ever seen reviews and heard about. I was finally able to obtain these from the Warren Store on the Thursday release day. I was very excited to try this and was not under-whelmed by this beer. It pours a very nice hazy golden color with a nice citrus aroma. The balance and malty support of this beer in the mouth makes it fantastic.
