Thanks to Joeybones for this beer in a recent trade.

Ahh, the much heralded and sought after Lawson's. I have only had 1 other beer from them, the Maple Nipple, and I was not overly impressed.

This beer pours a fairly bright orange but there is a lot of sediment floating around in it. a decent sized head that sticks around the entire time I drink it.
The smell is wonderful and intoxicating on it's own. Grapefruit forward and extremely citrusy. It smells very promising.
Taste- Very nice and refreshing on the front end. There is the promised grapefruit there but the end is a little too bitter for my tastes. This is much more like a double or triple IPA to me. I thought it may be with the name 'Triple Play' but it says on the label it's an IPA with 3 hap varieties, not a double or triple.
Mouthfeel is very nice.

Summing it up, a nice IPA but a bit too bitter for me tastes. It could finish a little bit cleaner for me.

pour is a dark hazed orange and scummy white ring. The nose is of grapefruit, pine and resinous hop. There is some pale and caramel malt up front to balance. The taste is banned and well integrated with an assertive hop presence dominating the back. Resiny, caramel malts, solid foundation, hops take over, lightly piney, fair bit of grapefruit and tropical fruit. Very nice fruity finish with a gentle bitterness ending abruptly. The body is easy to drink, well carbonated, faintly grainy towards the back.

Cloudy yellow with a tinge of orange, and a significant foamy head. Hoppy aroma. The taste is a bit vegetable. A good malty backbone and good drinkability and fits well into the style of IPA rather than DIPA.Above average mouthfeel.John’s bottle.Very nice but a little disappointed.

Thanks to Ryan for this at DLD... dark clear gold with hints of orange, a nice white head... the aroma is lots of oily pine, pretty bitter... taste is more of the same lots of bitter pine... I prefer the double sun shine but this is still pretty good

Poured from a bomber with no #freshbeer date but i'm not worried, this is fresh!

Pours an orange-gold body, huge head with tint sporadic bubbles racing up. Intricate lacing recedes slowly with air bubbles within it. Smell is lemon, orange, bit of grapefruit, tinge of sweetness. Remarkably well balanced and super smooth. Bitterness is low though felt in the aftertaste. Quite good but was hoping for more of an impact hop-wise.
