A: poured a golden orange in color with yellow highlights and a nice half finger of fluffy head that left plenty of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: definitely a lot of fruit in this aroma such as mangos, pineapple, citrusy lemon zest, good piney notes, with a good hoppy tones. It had some sweet sugary and maltiness coming out as well. very interesting nose.

T: lots of passion fruit in the flavor alongside fruits such as mongos, pineapple, a little peach, good pine earthy notes with a grassy hop character that had a mild hop bitter punch. I did however get some woody and slightly vanilla accents.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, fruity, woody, hoppy mild sweet, and slightly bitter finish.

O: very good beer all around and was happy to see it and try at the alcazaba summer bottle share, good lookin out whoever brought it.

Serving type: bottle

I've had this beer many times..Best place to have it-on tap at the PIG.
This is right up there with Heady Topper and anything by Hill Farmstead.
I travel to the Warren Store often and depending on what the selection is at the time,i can usually score me up some tasty Lawson's. I'm always up for trading, let me know.

Okay, the double sunshine is almost do i dare say it: Heady Topper.
Same look and feel but taste a bit more bodied. Beautiful gold color, super creamy from head to finish. Very thick lacing, and such an inviting nose. One swallow and the first thing to come to mind is: Liquid Gold! I'm not sure of the hop content, lets just say Hop Heads are smiling every where about this beer.

I'll post a review on the Triple IPA as well, have a few in the fridge right now.

Serving type: on-tap
