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.

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!

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.
