On the same night (the best night in recent memory) I was blessed with Pliny AND Double Sunshine IPA by Lawson's Finest! Needless to say, heavenly bliss ensued.

A - Pours a beautiful, hazy, light copper, almost a dark straw color. Almost a good 3 fingers of chunky, foamy head. Definitely unfiltered and natural.

S - Huge citrus punch in the nose, Earth tones galore on this one. Very herbal. Hops mingle at the end, its an outdoorsy pasture smell, reminds me of working on the farm and bucking hay.

T - Huge wave of citrus and hops at first. At the end there is a light hoppy-bitterness but finishes in a flash. You are left with slight residues that punches your tongue.

M - It is a punch in the mouth, I know I have already said that, but its honestly the best way I can describe it. So many different characters roll across the palate. It finishes nicely, leaving a thick, almost juice-like aftertaste feel.

O - So many levels that are always changing. Every drink you can pick something different and unique up. Loved this brew.

Lawson's Finest Liquids - Double Sunshine IPA aka "Dubs"

A friend of mine here on Beeradvocate (Hendry) hooked me up with one of these, which are hard to obtain even if you live here in Vermont.

Look - Pours hazy golden (sunshine? haha) with a slight tint of amber in the middle. Full, foamy head with great lacing.

Smell - Citrus and floral hop bomb to the face. Mouth-watering gloriousness. Grapefruit, sour orange, mango, and pine. These elements are apparent as soon as you pop the cap.

Taste - Immediately I noticed three waves of hoppy character. Blast of pine, blast of citrus, and a smooth mix of both and a casual finish. Juicy and full of flavor.

Mouthfeel - Quite a character, rugged and raw. Thick and hearty. Exceptionally drinkable.

Overall - Wow, utterly amazing brew. Complex, full of flavor and tough like a woodsman. Would highly, HIGHLY recommend. My favorite brew in this style and a bigger king among lesser kings.
