4.69/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: Poured from a bomber bottle into a stemless wine glass. Orange-marmalade in color with a hint of brown. 2-finger, frothy white head. Beautiful lacing.

S: A symphony of hop characteristic with a light sweetness that isn't the least bit cloying. Citrus rind, orange juice, fresh pine boughs, some mango and passion fruit, fresh herbs, I could go on forever on the aroma notes in here. Each whiff brings up something new and enticing!

T: This beer is fresh and crisp, with pound of flavor, and it's not afraid to get a little dirty. Well-balanced, with a nice juicy sweetness to form the backbone, with hop, hop, hop flavor layered on top. Notes of succulent tropical flowers, grapefruit and pine hops, some earthy grass and dirt on the swallow, with the overall impression that this beer was fresh squeezed from some magical beer fruit, or tapped from some magical beer tree. This tastes organic and natural and pure.

M: Clean and crisp with just enough to chew on to give you texture. You feel just a touch of the 8% abv in terms of heat, but mostly this is refreshing and juicy feeling. Not dry like some DIPAs I've had. This beer isn't out to destroy your mouth and palate, but more to dance on it and excite it.

O: World-class. This is how I imagine DIPAs would taste if they were found in nature. Harmony of flavors and feel, with a nurturing quality to the taste. Outstanding and worth whatever wait you need to get it. (1,430 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Pours a hazy yellowish brown, yellow at the bottom of the glass fading to a murky brown color at the top, thick head with a bit of an orange tint.

Smell is daaank zesty lemony and orange hops, sweet flower petals, touch of honey, hints of bitter grapefruit and a melange of light tropical fruit, and then some more dank. Pungent.

Taste is big juicy pineapple and lemon zest, sweet at first fading into a more bitter grapefruit hop character, finishes spicy and floral with a touch of pine. Complex and delicious.

Mouthfeel is super rich and thick, almost syrupy, but with healthy carbonation and great drinkability. Perfect.

Damn good.

22oz bottle courtesy of Wowcoolman, many thanks for bringing this over!

This beer pours a really nice peachy orange color, clean, clear with a couple of bubbles rising to the top of the glass. A nice fluffy finger of white head rests atop the beer, decent retention, a nice web of lacing left behind along with some film after the head recedes. The aroma is great, big floral notes jump out of the glass, citrus, some nice simple cereal malt. The hops are a bit soapy, but also bring out some nice coniferous notes along with some grassy earthiness. The flavors are great, follows the nose perfectly, lots of floral notes, juicy citrus, a bit of caramel sweetness from the malt, but that's really all the malt I could detect, this is a hop forward beer, plain and simple. Some tropical fruit comes out as well with some nice grassiness and pine at the finish. The body is superb, sticky, big and full, super smooth with perfect levels of carbonation.

Verdict: Certainly one of the finest IPAs out there. Great hop profile, just enough of a malt backbone to keep some balance, great body with a great powerful aroma. Super happy to have tried this one fresh! (1,160 characters)

Pours a hazy straw color, a touch of the orange you expect in big DIPA's, but noteably light in color. Nice creamy head!
The smell is divine! Powerful tropical fruits, some citrus, some pine, it's a complex and wonderful hop aroma.
Taste is outstanding, but not quite on par with the smell. Same flavor notes, but not quite as strong and a bit on the bitter side for my tastes.
Mouthfeel is great, though I think it could use a bit more body. Overall, this is clearly a world-class DIPA with few faults. If the bitterness could come down a bit, it would be one of my all-time favorites, but I'll still buy it every chance I get! And, thanks to Lawson's for keeping the price really reasonable! (694 characters)

Upon drinking this on tap at the Farmhouse in Burlington it struck me, not for the first time, that when beer is of this quality it’s merely taste which determines how one will rank it and where it should be put in our personal pantheon of any particular style. I was lucky enough to have this side by side with Hill Farmstead’s Abner and later that day, a very fresh can of Heady Topper. I’ve had Pliny and Blind Pig and multiple Alpine IPA’s, Surly’s Abrasive and Furious, and Double Sunshine was likely my favorite of all of them. They’re all phenomenal but on this particular day at least, I was completely blown away by how good this was.

The beer is very slightly hazy and golden with a fluffy white head that settles down slowly, leaving nice lacing on the glass. The aroma bursts up at you, with fresh and extremely vivid tropical fruit and citrus as well as some floral and resinous pine notes. A faint hint of sweet maltiness is also detected. The flavor is simply delicious, with the malt just propping the hops up ever so slightly with a subtle caramel taste and never intruding. Complex fruity hops dominate, with lots of grapefruit, orange, lemon, pineapple, etc. Piney notes also come into play. Bitterness is very moderate and while present doesn’t overshadow the hop details.

Medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a very smooth overall feel. Alcohol is undetected and the finish lingers quite pleasantly, with all those hop subtleties hanging around. Again, this one is at least as good as anything hoppy I’ve ever tried. (1,564 characters)

22oz bottle purchased at the Warren Store on 8-8-13. Poured into a Game Of Thrones tulip.

AP: Nice rich apricot colour, fluffy white 1" head which took some time to settle down to a 1/4". Decent lacing on the sides.
AR: Sweet aroma. This one smells juicy and lush. Vibrant aromas of tangerine, mango, pineapple, clementine, guava and passion fruit. The fruity scents are dominating and not much a malt presence is noticeable, though I get a very faint bit of cereal grains. I truly hope the taste is as lively as the nose.
T: Wonderful juicy fruity flavourful hops on the taste. I get more of the malt bill on the taste as well, a light bready flavour with a hint of caramel. It's just enough to give it structure. The citrus fruits are a bit more prominent in the flavour than the tropical fruits. A nice bit of blood orange rind in the finish with an herbal note like lavender. The fruity hops on this are lush and juicy, which is what I look for in a DIPA/IPA that stands out. Delicious.
M: Moderately carbonated, slightly creamy body, clean off dry finish and a lingering aftertaste. Very nice.
OV: Brilliant brew by Lawson's. I shared a bottle Monday night with a couple friends, which was the 3rd bottle we shared (first 2 beers were other breweries), thus didn't get the full effect of how truly good this beer is. Now that I'm having this bottle by myself without having any beers before it, everything in this beer shines through. Double Sunshine is an apt name for this beer as it's bright with flavours. Every sip makes you want another. So glad I have one more in my fridge. (1,587 characters)

My top 24 bestest beer buddy sent this to me! Thank BeerTruth, you handsome devil! LOVE Lawson’s and I’ve been excited to try this for quite some time. Drank from my Russian River tulip.

Appearance- Pours a light yellowish orange with a big beautiful one finger bright white head (even with a gentle pour). A beautiful cap and collar are maintained the entire beer along with tons of lacing.
Smell- Oh balls, they hit this out of the park. It’s got those super dank, almost raw, hoppy tones that I’ve only ever gotten from opening a vacuum pack sealed bag of hops and Surly Abrasive. Plenty of light lemony pine along with hints of peaches and pineapple. I get more of a citrusy fruit in the nose than anything else. Awesome stuff.
Taste- Not near as potent as the nose would suggest but absolutely delicious. Starts with a ton of orange peel and grapefruit. A touch of mango peeks in along with some grassy papaya. I do get a teeny tiny bit of burnt sugar in the finish but it’s fleeting. I get a fair amount of grassy earthiness that lingers into the finish.
Mouthfeel- My only real beef with the beer (all be it minor). It’s fairly light bodied but it’s got a great snap of crisp carbonation. Like I said, minor.
Drinkability- This is a great beer. Honestly, might be the best smelling beer I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking. It’s crazy how insane the beer smells yet the taste is pretty tame and balanced in comparison. Between this and Heady Topper I’d say two of the best West Coast beers in America are made on the East Coast. Thanks Adam! (1,572 characters)

On tap at the Blackback Pub in Waterbury VT

A - Hazy golden-orange with a two-finger head. Incredible retention and lacing that sticks in big clumps for days. Gorgeous.

S - Pine and grapefruit hops balanced perfectly with caramel sweetness. The aroma is up there with Pliny, no doubt. Very west coast -- hop forward, favoring the tropical fruits but balanced with pine.

T - Bitter hops up front, with grapefruit and pine flavors. Transition into a honey and caramel sweetness finishing with a dry toasted grain. This beer is impossibly tasty. Everything I look for in an IPA and more.

M - Medium in body. Perfect degree of dryness in the finish. Starts out a bit sharp from the carbonation and bitterness and this doesn't quite go away.

O - One of the best IPAs I have ever had, without a doubt. Deserves the reputation as one of the best. This beer balances bitter and sweet perfectly and incorporates many complimenting flavors with a body that matches it well. I was floored.

EDIT: Drinking Pliny today Feb 20... These beers are very similar, particularly in Taste. Amazing beer, this. (1,094 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A - Appeared orange-golden with 1 inch slightly off-white head with medium sized bubbles in a 4oz taste-tester glass poured from a cask at the 2012 VT BrewFest

S - Potent fruity tones of grapefruit and really dank, delicious hops. Very floral and full of citrusy goodness.

T - As predicted by the way the beer smelled, the grapefruit and pineapple hoppyness was dominant. Not too strong of a malty backbone.

M - Medium-bodied. Left a strong resinous hop bite that subsided after about 30 seconds. (Good thing)

O - Overall, it is a great IPA that I would love to drink side-by-side with Heady Topper as they are so similar to one another. I would have to say that Heady Topper is better, although this beer would make a good substitute, never a replacement, however. (771 characters)

Appearance: Cloudy - suspect it's from all of the dank Hops!

Smell: citrus is prevalent, hop forward - outstanding!

Taste: Light and very fresh - catches a tonl of the hop flavors without the hint of Malt. Many 'double brews' are too malt forward. This is anything but.

Mouthfeel: Yes.

Drinkability: Yes X2

Love the double sunshine!! (339 characters)

Golden yellow/orange body. A bit hazy with a nice sized white head. Decent amount of lacing and solid alcohol legs.

Aromas of pine, peaches, orange, citrus zest, over ripe melon, mint oil, and a touch of mango. A nice bready dough scent as well.

Right up front a great mix of peach, pine, and citrus. Bitterness pops up in the middle and drys out quite nicely. The dryness carries on after the finish. Left with a touch of pine, candied orange, and a mild floral aftertaste.

The bitterness is so incredibly balanced here. It hits just right. The taste and feel are absolutely killer. This beer definitely brings some 'Sunshine' to the nose and palate. World Class IPA for sure.

22oz bottle poured into a Lawson's stemmed glass

A - Pours a hazy pale golden color with a faint orange tint to the body. A thick finger plus cap of fluffy bright white foam lingers for a good couple of minutes, slowly fading towards the surface and leaving behind sheets of foamy lacing on the glass.

S - Bright and citrusy. Sweet, juicy grapefruit from start to finish. Mild pine touches mixed along with some tropical notes. Grapefruit dominates in a very good way tho. Searching hard, I can find traces of light biscuity malt, but very faint.

T - Rich grapefruit juice-like bitterness. Very firm, crisp bitterness. Fruity, citrusy and a touch sweet up front lend itself to comparison to a fresh squeezed glass of grapefruit juice. Aside from the dominant grapefruit, there is some mild sweet malt, faint yeasty, bready flavors. Pine flavors come on a bit, especially as this warms up a bit in the glass. Alcohol is noticeable but not obtrusive - just enough to let you know that this isn't a session beer. Bright hop bitterness of rather high intensity - despite the heavy dose of citrus and tropical fruitiness, the bitterness of the hops cuts through and delivers a little bit of punch.

M - Thicker body than I expected and checking in just on the high side of medium bodied. Carbonation is mid-level as well, but has a soft feel on the tongue, slightly foamy, but mostly creamy in texture. This has a very sticky and resiny character to it...somewhat syrupy and viscous in feel. So much hop character - leaves bitter, citrusy, piney impressions for a long time after each swallow...like breathing in the ambient air from a jam packed hop warehouse.

O - Have had this several times before at ACBF, but only in sample sizes. First time I've been able to experience this beer fully through an entire bottle. This isn't the most bitter beer I've had and this isn't the most intensely hop flavored DIPA I've had either. However, this is one of the closest to perfect combination of hop characters I've ever had. Balance (if you can call it that) is outstanding. I don't mean the hops and malt work together in perfect harmony...this is derfinitely a hop forward beer as it should be. Balance of crisp bitterness, super juicy citrus flavors backed by some pine and tropical fruits, intense mouthfeel and inviting appearance make this beer a real experience. I am putting this in my top 10 beers of all time...having had this several times, I think I can eliminate the environmental factors that can cloud all of our judgements. Are there better DIPA's out there?...maybe, but this holds up to the best of the ones I've ever had. If there are better, I'd certainly like to try them. (2,687 characters)

Thanks Fujii13 for sending this huge want my way!

A-Hazy dark golden color with a 1 finger head that leaves minimal lacing

S-Sweet tropical and citrus hops right off the bat with a little bit of pine mixed in. Also catch small hints of wheat.

T-Follows the nose with the sweet citrus and tropical flavors with notes of pine and earthiness. The hops a kept in check with a nice hearty malty backbone that stands up nicely to that diverse hop profile.

M-Relatively heavy body (for the style) with a nice smooth and creamy mouthfeel and lower than average carbonation.

O-Excellent DIPA easily crack my top 5. Great hop profile with the perfect amount of malt mixed in to keep it balanced (relative to the style). (717 characters)

22 oz bottle courtesy of Cody. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to try both my first Hill Farmstead and now my first Lawson's. Much appreciated!

Pours like carbonated pineapple juice. Bubbles are soapy and chunky atop a clouded base.

Smells nicely of tropical fruits a bit of sweet and sticky and a light pine bitterness. Soft, ripe, and inviting.

This is absolutely delicious: very, very, juicy and fresh. White fleshy nectarine, firm yellow cherries, and soft grassy bitterness that leaves a firm tingle but does not overwhelm any of the aforementioned deliciousness.

Mouthfeel is odd. Drinks almost like carbonated nectar. Alcohol, while low for a DIPA, is still nearly non existent.

I have no idea how much this bottle cost and I don't care. It's worth it. An absolute pleasure and a beer that I not only am thrilled to have tried, but would love the opportunity to drink again. (894 characters)

Had this on 2012-02-4 in Lititz, PA. Special thanks to matador677 for this special treat today; along with the also-special FFF Zombie Dust and The Alchemist's Heady Topper. Just awesome.

A - Mildly-hazy, golden-orange with a fluffy off-white head with moderate lacing.

S - Wonderful. Everything you could hope for with tropical, citrus, hop floral and a light touch of pine. Not dank.

T - Wow. Perfect. Hop forward bitterness, orange and pineapple flesh, lighter touch of mango and sweet pineapple, pale malt, citric zest bitterness. Dries nicely and leaves a to-die-for bright and bitter aftertaste.

M - Medium body and the right amount of carbonation. Smooth and full-bodied. Really nice.

O - One of the finest DIPAs; no question. Smells great, delicious, substantial and refreshing. Wow. (797 characters)

Bottle from the March 1 bottling, reviewed on April 1.

A - I am a sucker for the unfiltered IPA look. Looks like cloudy lemonade, maybe a shade or two darker. Thick white head, pours to about 3 inches, dissipates quite slowly. Leaves moderate amount of thick lacing. Very very nice.

S - smooth citrus, lemon, grapefruit. Also some juicy tropical notes, like mango. Clean and crisp.

T - this is a full spectrum IPA. Leads with juicy tropical fruit, then orange and grapefruit. Lingering around is some bitter piney type notes. The is a clean and quick punch of bitterness to finish and leave with a rich bitter orange peel after taste. Damn near perfect.

M - great. Nice hop oil. It's interesting in that the carbonation is a little hidden at first and then at the end there is a prickle of carbonation. Really nice.

O - certainly a top shelf, private stock, so good you don't want to share it IPA. Ranks second only to heady in my opinion. This is one of those beers that, if you had to pick one beer for the rest of your life, it'd be a front runner. (1,056 characters)

I'll preface the review by saying that if you're a beer enthusiast and Vermont is within driving distance, albeit a trek, the hours spent in the car are worth the price of admission. Is it a double sunshine, or is it a solar flare in liquid form that just emptied into my Surly pint? Either way, this unfiltered masterpiece is looking more like a mimosa than a glass of beer. There's enough residual lace on my glass to give a dendrochronologist a beergasm. The nose on this (for me) is pretty straightforward: Juicy Fruit chewing gum and fresh cut grass. It tastes like a well-balanced mixture of tropical fruits with just enough malt backbone to give it that perfect kick. Not overly bitter, just exceptionally balanced and masterfully crafted. So smooth; so drinkable; the abv on this one is masked and then some. This is a stellar beer. Lawson's Finest has done what I'm sure numerous other brewers have attempted, but their labor of love is simply put -- better executed. To my fellow hop heads and self-professed IPA lovers, I implore you to seek out this beer. If it were more accessible, it would maintain a permanent residence in my fridge.

Well done. (1,161 characters)

A - Pours an orange gold color that's crisp and clear, light carbonation and leaves a delicate white lacing ring, low carbonation.

S - Pungent and dank light tropical fruit resin, pineapple, oranges, and some floral notes.

T - Very hop forward, lots of resinous, vinous, juicy tropical light colored fruit - juicy sweet ruby red grapefruit, sweet orange and bitter orange rinds, with a peppery spice finish.

M - Medium body and leaves a big coating of pepper spice and ruby grapefruit coating in the mouth that lingers for a very long time.

O - A beer worthy of its expectations. (585 characters)

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

Appeared a cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger, perfectly white head that vanished quickly.

Smelled of intense citrus and pine. Very little malt in the nose.

Taste is delicious. First you are hit with citrus, followed by some pine in the finish. Light sweetness balances it all out. This is one where the hops shine - little behind them.

Solid mouthfeel - medium carbonation. Almost silky.

Overall this is an amazing DIPA. (481 characters)

Snifter on draft at The Farmhouse in Burlington, VT

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a 1-finger white head that disappears but leaves traces all down the glass. Aromas are excellent, just a power punch of smells in your nose. Taste is similar to the smell, a myriad of flavors across your palette; citrus with the perfect balance of maltiness. Overall, one of the best double ipas I've ever had.

Writing from memory 5 days ago, but it was so good i was compelled to write my first review. Drink Vermont Beer! (519 characters)

Like most others, I have been seeking this beer for quite a long time, it wasn't until I made a recent trip up to Vermont that I stumbled upon it at a farmer's market. Anyways, on to the review...

A: Pours a foamy white head with mild head retention. The beer itself is a pseudo-cloudy light golden color with a fairly average stick.

S: Not as strong as I was hoping for, but offers an initial blast of citrus tones, strong grapefruit, pineapple with a bit of piney freshness.

T: Carries through with all aroma tones but offers a nice complexity overcoming its aroma, this thing is truly one delicious brew. You get that strong citrus flavor immediately followed by a nice malt tone. It manages to round itself out and end on a nice piney note. Amazing.

M: Soft, medium-bodied, moderately carbonated.

O: I came in with extremely high expectations of this beer, and honestly, it did not disappoint! I just wish it was a bit easier to find! (943 characters)

Poured from a 22oz bottle

A: Golden orange, slightly hazy

S: Not a punch in the face of hops as you'd expect from most IPAs of this reputation, however the nose is fantastic. Full of mango and peach, there is something very very unique about it.

T: If this isn't the best tasting IPA I've had it may at least be the most unique. Major juicy mango, peach, pineapple fruitiness with some earthy and grassy notes in the background. Hardly any bitterness detectable, hardly any alcohol detectable. There is almost something savory or meaty about it, like biting into the flesh of a mango.

M: Juicy juicy juicy

O: This one is a real winner, I wish it were easier to get. (670 characters)
