Got this from Dr. Hennig, thanks so much. Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a slightly hazy orange, with a one inch stick white head that leaves beautiful lace. Smell is a tropical citrus mango, pineapple, tangerine, papaya, and grapefruit. Taste is just amazing, very well balanced, with grapefruit dominating the finish in a wonderful way. Body is medium, plenty of life, with a dry finish, and so easy drinking. This is possibly the best IPA that has ever touched these lips, Vermont knows Citra hops like nobody. Wow it is so special. My first IPA or DIPA perfect score.

Won in a "beer bracket" contest for March Madness. Batch 202, bottle #20.

A: Poured into my Pretty Things goblet. Pours a hazy gold with very little head on it, fading fast and not sticking around. Very light white/yellow lace. Dig the bottle presentation too, very Vermont. Simple and classic.

S: Lots of fruit in the nose...crispy citrus rinds with a subtle hoppiness but not as much as I expected. Not necessarily a bad thing, just surprising.

T: Wow. The citrus is there but not as blossoming as the nose. Flavor dances with the hops that are more present with each sip but not overbearing at all. A surprisingly smooth finish rounds it out just as the hops put the punctuation on the experience.

M: A slight dry pucker that has me constantly reaching for my glass. It quenches and lingers in a perfect balance leaving the tongue tingling and the throat wanting more.

O: I've tried plenty of IPAs. It's an easy beer to order and even easier to forget sometimes. This is the best American IPA I've ever had. It's complexity is delivered so smoothly, it becomes brilliantly simple.

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

Poured into a Lawson's Finest Liquids Tulip.

Appearance - Pours a gorgeous golden color with a solid 1/2 inch of sudsy head. The color is a nice orange in a more dim light.

Smell - Wow. A HUGE punch of tropical fruits and an ever bigger punch of hops. The smell is absolutely fantastic.

Taste - Simply amazing. A perfect blend of hops/malt. An absolute bomb of tropical fruits including mango, orange, grapefruit and papaya. An overload of hops. The malt is very subtle. Tastes a little bready to me. I can't believe that this isn't a DIPA. The flavor is unreal.

Mouthfeel - Great pungency. The bitterness really sticks to your mouth.

Overall - Double Sunshine's little brother. I can't believe this much flavor was packed into an IPA. This is the flavor you would expect from a DIPA. I love hops and this certainly did not let me down. Definitely one of the best single IPA's I have ever had. This beer was truly amazing. And yet another incredible offering from Lawson's.

Triple Play pours more of an amber coppery orange color- which is mildly distinct when compared to Sean's other IPA's. I like the look, but I personally prefer the golden honey orange of his Double Sunshine or Kiwi Double (nothing to take away from triple play at all). Fantastic smell with big juicy citrus at the forefront- mostly dominated by grapefruit and that's about it as I pick up on little to no malty sweetness or piney smells. Taste is very much in order with the smell, a clean citrussy grapefruit and orange at first from the CItra slowly fading to a slightly bitter resinous pine from the Centennial. The thing that I love about this IPA is the malt is all but removed from the taste leaving the hops to explode on your pallet. The brew sits with more of a mild bitter piney taste and I am experiencing little to no alcohol in the aftertaste. With such a minimal malt presence one could think this would be an overly bitter brew, but this isn't the case at all. The taste is what really what makes this beer for me and the hop profile is amazing. I give a perfect 5 for taste as Sean was able to pack SO much flavor into an IPA- I mean I have had at least 20 DIPA's that don't even come close to this hop flavor profile. If this had been a DIPA I may have scored it a 4.75, but as of now I am saying best hop flavor for a single IPA going!

Picked this up on my Vermont road trip last week!
7% ABV, 22oz. bottle
"A trifecta of hop varieties deliver a symphony of juicy tropical hop flavors and a wonderful bouquet of aromas. Brewed and dry hopped with Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial."
2011 National IPA Champion.

A rigorous pour worked up a massive three finger, off-white head that puffed up on top of a peach-gold body with little floaties. This is an unfiltered beer so I should have been more acreful with the pour. The head receded after a few minutes to a thin coat, and left sticky lacing all over the side of the glass.

Tropical aromas indeed! Ripe pineapple, lemon pith, mangoes, grapefruit and bubblegum. Mostly all hops in the aroma and not much in the way of malt showing through. But these three hops play wonderfully together and there could be no better IPA smell at the time of this review. All else are equal at best.

And a perfect taste to match. What makes this perfect in my book is the great balance that is struck between malts and hops. Sweet malts up front are quickly met with a finishing bitterness that is at once gentle (I'm guessing...60 IBU's?) and lasting, which keeps the palate wanting that next sip! Notes of juicy hops remain on the palate long into the aftertaste. This, folks, is an IPA worth seeking out.

The mouthfeel is decent. Full-bodied beer with a mild amount of carbonation. I kind of wish that the carbonation level was higher, as this beer feels more like a Double IPA at this point. Can we just call it a DIPA? (I'll give it a 5, like all DIPA's get)

Overall, I am very glad I got the opportunity to try this beer. It is clear why it won the National IPA Championship, because it has an insane aroma, it is well-balanced, and it hides the 7% ABV very well. This is the "finest" example of an IPA that I have ever had. I love the American hops, the well-designed nature of it all, and the aroma! Get this if you can.

Lawson's Finest Liquids - Triple Play IPA, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a hazy orange with a slight amber hue, great soapy head with good retention. Abundance of lacing all over. Perfect looking brew.

Smell - Absolutely amazing aroma! Juicy citrus with a tinge of tartness. Malt sweetness gently complements.

Taste - Malt gone in the blink of an eye with a blast of grapefruit citrus and fading to bitter pine from Centennial hops.

Mouthfeel - Rests bitter pine. Medium-bodied with low carbonation. Great drinkability. Booziness is absent completely.

Overall - Another phenomenal brew by Sean Lawson. They are all a little different, which is what makes these batches so unique and keeps me personally coming back for more. This is another MUST TRY brew!

It is difficult for me to understand how beer enthusiasts outside of Vermont are getting their hands on Lawson's Finest Liquids, but more power to you if you can make that happen. I live an hour from where they make this stuff and it has become extremely difficult to purchase multiple bombers depending on their production.

Again, thanks to my buddy & hop mentor for the opportunity to try Triple Play. All I can say for these Lawson's elixirs is WOW! There is a pride and closeness to attention that make their small batch hand crafted beers extra special, and Triple Play fits squarely in that category.

Triple Play pours a cloudy, hazy off orange color, and the nose is delectable. Simply varying degrees of excellence between this and the Double Sunshine. All of the best attributes in tropical fruit aroma/flavor and aftertaste are delivered but in a slightly heavier consistency than the run of the mill DIPA or Triple IPA. The body is the heavy side of medium, and it rests on the palate. The aftertaste is enjoyable with every slow sip, as this is not a beer for quaffing.

I very much look forward to getting my hands on multiple bombers of Lawson's for my beer archive in the coming months. If you can find this one, chances are good it while make you smile.

A- Hazy, golden-orange with a one finger white head that fades quickly, but leaves behind nice lacing

S- Tropical citrus fruit with a dank, piney undertone.

T- Taste follows the aroma, strong citrus taste with a good dose of resinous piney flavor as well. A bit of malt carries through on the back end, but bitterness returns to dominate the aftertaste

M- medium body with a dry crisp finish that leaves you going back for more.

O-A complex, beautifully hoped IPA, that is deceptively easy drinking. Another great beer from Lawson's.

Wow. Underrated to say the least. With all the hype that Double Sunshine and Hopzilla get this takes a back seat, and undeservedly so.

Smell is fruity hops all day long. Smooth and mouth filling with fine bubbles that cut through the beer wonderfully.

No where near what most breweries consider a Triple IPA. Way more along their lines of a DIPA. Clocking in at 7% the alcohol is barely noticeable and honestly all Triples I taste are too sweet for my taste; not this.

I enjoyed this more so than either of the other Lawsons offerings. Buy some if you get the chance.

Thanks to ShadesofGray for opening this bottle at DLD 2011. Served in a SAVOR snifter.

Pour yields a nice peach-colored brew with a really nice head of white foam that lasts for a bit before falling and leaving behind a good dose of lacing. The nose is overloaded with citrus hops. Behind that, a bit of resinous pine and some mild tropical notes. No malt to speak of well. Well done there. The taste isn't quite as pungent, but is really quite nice, falling through onto a nice finish with a great level of bitterness. Another very, very solid IPA from Lawson's.

22 oz gold foil topped bottle purchased at Warren Store two days ago. Served in a Lawson's snifter.

Pours a hazed dark golden amber with a frothy off white head that fades to a thick collar, thin film and abundant clumps of lace. Green, resiny and dank nose of Citra and Simcoe hops. Light malt notes, with earthy and leafy hops balancing the citric and tropical hops. Medium thick, well carbonated body with a sticky dry finish. Taste is green, resiny hops, simcoe forward with more cent. hops in the finish to balance out the sweetness. Not quite as bright as Double Sunshine or Hopzilla, a more textbook IPA that still lives up to the Lawson's HYPE.

Thanks to Wally for the bottle!
Batch 202

Poured into an Alchemist pint glass. Pours an almost clear, light orange color with a thick, foamy, white head on top. Leaves some nice lacing along the glass.

Lots of Simcoe and Citra on the nose. Hoppy with sweet malts in the background. Floral citrus though out. Earthy, hoppy and floral. Great aroma, especially for a single IPA.

Chewy Citra hop and crushed orange wedge on the tongue. Chewy caramel malt backbone, but hops take the center stage. Lots of citrus and leafy hops. Excellent.

Mouthfeel is crisp with tasty hop bitterness through out. Slightly resiny with a good weight to the body. ABV is unnoticeable. This goes down easy.

Overall, this is another excellent hopped up beer from Sean Lawson. Lots of flavor and a solid nose. It doesn't get much better than this for a sessionable IPA. Vermont is turning into a killer IPA/DIPA state. Highly recommended.

Poured into a tulip glass a dull copper color with a large blooming white that left a few broken rings of lace as it settled slowly.Big citric hops really jump out ya in the nose,pithy grapefruit and lemon notes over top of sweet alcohol and caramel.Fresh sharp grapefruit hops on the palate with underlying resiny notes,just great hop complexity mixed with some sweet induced alcohol.Wow there is a real citric punch to this beer,almost DIPAish except not overly sweet,a great beer.

Thanks to phingding for the bottle!

Pours dark straw color with a creamy 3 finger white head settling in at about a finger with excellent lacing.

Wonderful aroma. Some pineapple, mango maybe a bit of bubblegum. Loads of citrus too.

Starts off with the same mango/tropical fruit thing as the aroma. Big juicy fruit flavor up front. A little bit of pine starts to creep in before finishing with an all out, but still wonderfully smooth bitterness.

A touch low on the carbonation helping create a creamy mouthfeel. I'd still like a touch more though.

Another home run from Lawson's. I think I still prefer Double Sunshine to this, but it's a very hop forward yet not overly bitter IPA. I could drink this all day.

22 oz gold foil topped bomber into a tulip glass. Rare Batch #202/Bottle #1.

Pours a crystal clear copper, topped with several fingers of rich bright-white head. This retains with a frothy ½ finger, slathering the sides of the glass with thick swathes of foamy lacing. The aroma is floral and bright, with an herbal edge and light notes of pine and spice. A perfect blend of bitter grapefruit, zesty rind, bready grains, and sweet tropical fruit form the base here in the nose. I must reiterate just how awesome the balance of this is.

The hops are fresh and bright in the taste, with a bitter blast of grapefruit and zesty tart lemon, which is tempered a bit on the sides by hints of tropical fruit. Underlying supportive malts give this just enough balancing sweetness, while still allowing those hops to shine with a crisp and very dry bite that leaves notes of pine, pithy fruit, and light spice lingering in the finish. Much like the nose, there is just an outstanding balance here. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a slick easy crispness that that perfectly complements the hop profile here. There are no alcohol flavors present either, with only a gentle warmth that adds to the intensity of the flavors.

Wow, another home run of an IPA from Sean Lawson here, with that triple threat of Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial hops all combining to give this a fantastic blend of hop characters which where thankfully well balanced out into a fresh, crisp, and hugely drinkable version of what an American IPA should be. This bottle had a few weeks on it when I had it and was still drinking pretty super! This is another one to seek out.

Thanks to shadesofgray for the share.

A - Golden IPA, slightly hazy, with a big frothy cap of off-white foam and some serious lace.

S - The nose suggests a citrusy hop-bomb with a bit of a sugar cookie malt underlying. Notes of curacao, orange blossom and mango sap are apparent.

T - The taste follows the nose with a lightly sugary malt supporting intense citric and dank hoppiness. Cannabis notes are strong in the flavor, especially towards the finish. There is a ton of citrus-rindy bitterness, and some sappy pine and mango notes, too.

M - IPA. Good. Refreshing.

O - I am quite impressed by this beer; it is an upper tier IPA, doubtless.

Scored this at the Warren Store and popped it for a nightcap at our room at the Crystal Palace B&B back in Bristol...

Poured it into an imperial nonic glass I just happened to have handy... It was a medium golden, a touch hazy, and had scattered, slow carbo present. A creamy white head sat atop the brew, the frothy foam leaving some nice lacing. Had a lovley aroma, with some apricot sweetness plus rindy citrus. Quite inviting. Pretty easy going over the tongue, the body was medium to medium-plus.

Some sweetness hit the palate first, with a little orange and tangerine zestiness present. Thereafter it was all rindy and resiny, the plentiful hopping really leaving a long trail of pleasing bitterness down the hatch. Grapefruit, some pineapple, and lots of piney action really hit the spot! Triple play? More of a home run in my book. Might have been a grand slam if it had left a little more coin in my pocket! Prosit!

A - Pours a medium to dark orange color with a dense, creamy layer of white foam that hangs out on the top and doesn't go away, a very thick lacing ring as well and very sticky on the sides of the glass.

S - Lots of pungent tropical fruit: mangos, oranges, and pineapple, sweet hoppiness but not sugary aroma, light floral. The aroma is dense and dank.

T - Buttery for a brief moment right off followed by a wave of spicy sweet tropical fruit, faint caramel malt, and morphs into a massive wave of sweet grapefruit and floral bitterness that lingers for minutes afterwards. The hop flavor is resiny, thick, and dense.

M - Heavy medium body and silky smooth on the tongue. Coats the mouth with a orange/grapefruit/floral bitterness

O - Another fabulous IPA from Lawson's that's a must try.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

22oz. bottle procured at the Montpelier Farmer's Market on 3/2/2012. Served in a tulip nonic. Pours a pale, straw gold hue with a translucent clarity and a loose, quarter inch bright white head that eventually settles into a soapy slick - no lacing on this one. Nose on this beer is fantastic - tropical fruits are revealed upfront, followed by faint aromas of cat pee and evening out with an herbal/earthy finish. Taste follows nose; however, the tropical fruit is a bit more intense and has an almost candied quality, while the Simcoe character blends in with the earthy herbal qualities culminating in a light, lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with an assertive, slightly prickly carbonation and light oiliness to the texture. What can I say, this is a fantastic IPA with so much tropical goodness - I wish I picked up a second bottle, but at least I got to enjoy several offerings on-draft as well. I'd love to see more IPAs with this complexity and flavor profile.

It's a cloudy glass of beer. Dark orange in the shadows and glowy yellow-orange in direct light. Medium head, off-white. A blanket of little bubbles. Good lacing and retention. The aroma is a very bright blend of citrus and tropical fruit. It smells like a smoothie made of oranges, tangerines, pineapples, mangoes and papayas. Rich and fruity and citrus sweet. Very little malt character. Just a pungent load of hops. My only knock is that the aroma could be a bit stronger. This bottle is pretty fresh, but I wouldn't be shocked if a pour off a newly filled keg would raise my score. The taste has wonderful hop flavor, particularly for a 7% abv beer. It's just packed with complexity and delicacy. The bitterness is fairly mild. It's just got a ton of flavor. It has that same mix of citrus and tropical fruit. Very bright and sweet, though there's little malt sugariness. It's just all fresh, tasty hops. What malt can be found is light and a bit cracker-ish. Long finish full of grapefruit-ish hop bitterness. Pretty dry. Mouthfeel is medium. Really fills the mouth with flavor. Nice dry finish. Good platform for the hop flavors. This is an excellent IPA, on par with the best of the style. I've been very impressed with all of the Lawson's beers that I've tried, and I'm thrilled to be able to sit down and have a bottle of Triple Play to myself. Great stuff.

Bottle To Dogfish Head IPA glass

A: Orange honey colored that is totally completely cloudy and to ally opaque. It has a bright white heady that goes up about 2in but dissipates quickly. Not the cleanest IPA but matches the hop profile

S: wow citrus fruit city there is definitely some oranges in there and some mango as well, but they are definitely hops in there. It smells juicy and fresh i really just wanna dive in

T: The taste follows the nose with lots of citrusy and juicy hops, however that is not all that is there by any means. It has a crisp taste a nice more subtile hop bitterness (given this is clearly a hop bomb) and is not overwhelming in fact it is almost delicate as apposed to resiny and lasts on the tongue for quite a while for each sip. Has a lot of flavor for a single IPA but is well balanced as well which is not easy to do.

M: It has a crisp bitter feel upfront it is not quite resiny though. It is very light for an IPA and so thin its almost watery. The carbonation is almost undetectable but it goes go down very easily given the alcohol content, super drinkable.

O: This a a great really drinkable hop forward IPA with lots of juicy citrusy hops, but it is well balanced. This is the best single IPA i have had from lawson's and is actually a close second to Double Sunshine I remember not being blown away in the past but having it fresh it really is a high quality beer I highly recommend.

Enjoyed this beer in a large hand blown Simon Pearce tulip glass.
Pours a medium amber with one finger head.
Smell is delightful, hoppy and sweet but both are moderate in their strength.
Taste is delicious, right in line with aromas but even juicier. Mild bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel really intrigued me. It felt silky on my palate, not thin. Perfect carbonation.
Overall, a fantastic IPA that is very well crafted and restrained in places.

Poured into a pint glass, revealing two and a half fingers of crisp, foamy white head with nice staying power over a hazy ruddy golden body. Some lacing. Smells sweet, lemony and with an awesome floral citrus hop presence.

Tastes clean, bitter and malty with a pure light citrus hop presence up front along with an assertive but well-integrated bitterness. Fades into sweet, chewy malt. Mouthfeel is light and flows easily with a slight tongue tickling carbonation. Very floral. Very flavorful. So nice. Dry in the finish, to keep you coming back. Very drinkable.

Overall one of my favorite AIPAs. I would really love some on tap.

22oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Thanks a ton, Michael.
A: Pours a deep citrus golden with a large, oily, off-white head that slowly faded into a thin film and collar that left spotty lace down the glass.
S: I get huge notes of fresh citrus and tropical smelling hops. Papaya, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple and passion fruit fill the glass. Hops are bright, juicy and fresh smelling.
T: Follows the nose with sweet and lightly bitter notes of citrus rind, juicy tropical fruits, and a hint of pale malt, mint and biscuit dough. The finish has a note or two of brown sugar and maybe caramel, and the aftertaste is clean and bitter.
M: Medium body, full and even carbonation, with a slick mouthfeel that goes down smooth and refreshing.
O: An excellent IPA that is a hop bomb closer to a dipa than the regular. Lawson knows how to do hops right. Thanks again, SneezyAchew!
