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.

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.

4.01/5 rDev -8.9%
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Slightly hazy orange bottle. Wispy surface after a chunky head dissipates. Thin collar.
Smell - Less citrusy than I thought. Grapefruit and orange hops, but musty resiny hops balance. Hardly any malt presence.
Taste - Follows the nose. Even more of the pine hops than the nose. Strong grainy malt here that I didn't get from the nose. Finishes with just a hint of sweetness.
Mouthfeel - Dry and very bitter. Well carbonated and fairly light.
Overall - I expected more from Lawson's. Every other IPA has been fantastic from them, but this is merely good. First world problems?

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a big foamy/soapy white head that recedes to leave some sticky lacing.
Aromas begin with big crisp fresh citrus and floral hops. My buddy and I guessed Centennial and Simcoe even before we read the label. Huge grapefruit, pine, tropical pineapple and mango with some underlying resiny and grassy as well.
The tastes begin with huge grassy, resiny, grapefruit and floral hops flavors on top of a small amount of pale sweet maltiness. Really can't add much more here because it's just an assault of citrus and pine on the palate.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is dry and bitter, just as it should be.
Overall this was a great IPA with loads of flavor and body for a single IPA. A lot of hop complexity for a single IPA as well. The Citra, Centennial and Simcoe play amazying together and create a fantasic treat. A bit resiny toward the end but excess Citra will sometimes do that.
