the nectar of the gods. This blows away Heady Topper, and Heady is one of the best beers I've ever had. Truly the most amazing beer i have ever had.

This beer gets better with each pour out of the bomber. I enjoyed this cherry popping session more than the one I had w/ HT. Cheers!

double sunshine - lawson's finest liquids double ipa

appearance: very interesting pour starts of a starbright sunrise orange color. half way through the pour color starts to darken and get slightly hazy. end of pour continues to add haziness and ends up a over ripe peach hue. this even after i gently rolled the bottle before opening. attractive soapy, loose off white bubbly head, with a decent retention.
aroma: i was expecting to be instantly blown away by the nose. i was actually a little bit disappointed, i felt it was slightly muted. decided to let it sit and revisit a few mins later. now i could get nice sweet pineapple, mango, peach followed by some really interesting sour grapes and bright crisp green apples. slight earthy, vegetal ending. i don't get any maltiness at all.
taste: i've never had an ipa that has tasted like this. so fresh and juicy loads of tropical fruits that swirl around with that subtle sour grape i got on the nose. crisp snappy green apples with a floral rose petal and honeysuckle in the middle. nice earthy, herbal notes that come in right before the slightly sweet bready malts.
mouthfeel: medium body and carbonation. one of the craziest snappy quick dry finishes i've had to date. this beer drinks do wet and juicy and literally when i swallow it sucks all the moister out of my mouth begging me to drink more.
overall: having the opportunity to have the top 3 rated ipas back to back to back in the same night was mind blowing. i truly think that ds is an outstanding beer. the taste is super unique and delicious. i feel like i could smash multiples of this no problem. with that being said i feel like it lacked that in your face aroma that heady topper has. the flavor profile i would put above pliny so results for me would be:
1. heady topper
2. double sunshine
3. pliny the elder

rating: hard to give this anything but 5/5 zombie heads!
