enjoyed on-tap at the reservoir in waterbury, vt on 11/12/11.

a: served in a lawson's finest liquids glass. bright yellow in color with a very thick haze. wow! this is almost as bright as sunshine! (sorry, i just had to)

s: heavy citrus and flowery hop aroma. smells like a field of wildflowers and giant sliced-open grapefruits. no joke. probably the most citrus/flower/tropical hop aroma i have ever smelled.

t: citrus hop flavor dominates with flavors of tropical fruits like passionfruit and mango. slight bitter pine character. perfectly balanced and surprisingly refreshing. want more.

i was completely blown away by this double ipa. i knew it was going to be delicious, but i didn't think it would be "highlight-of-my-trip" delicious. well done, and deserves the straight fives.

I dont feel as if I need to say much- best doub I have ever had. To me its even better than heady topper, although they are two entirely different doubs. More fruity than a heady- overwhelming mango and more subtle apricot and papaya notes whereas the heady has more of a citrusy pink grapefruit and tangerine taste. Extraordinarily well balanced with the perfect ratio of fruit and subtle citrus an pine resins followed by a supremely smooth hoppy taste. There is really nothing I would have changed in the brew and I plan to buy another 5 this Thursday at the Warren General Store. If you have the chance to get your hands on this unique brew in Warren then I highly recommend that you do so-I cant say there is anything more worth your time.

I honestly do not believe you if you rate this beer lower than a five. You either bought an old ass bottle off of mybeercellar, acquired one from a bad trader, or you are a gay (no offense) . This is literally without a doubt the best DIPA of all time. Not only that, it is quite arguably the best beer in the world, if not ever. Please, if you gave this a 4.5 or lower just stop acting like you are a professional tasting poop sniffer. // Anyways... the best beer evaaa! Lawson is da man..
