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.

From 01/18/14 notes. Huge thanks to BeerLayer85 for sharing a bottle of this from this recent VT trip; thanks Ross! 22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a murky, yellow-orange color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, grapefruit, tropical fruity, mangos, floral hops, grains, and light earthy notes. Great nose, lots of citrus and fruits to it.

t - Tastes of bitter citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, bready malts, tropical fruits, earthy malts, and pale malts. Good but decently bitter and more malty than I was expecting.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Some bitterness but nice.

o - Overall a very good IPA, though personally I prefer Double Sunshine. Awesome nose but this one is a little maltier, worth checking out though. Would love to have it again sometime.

Overall 93/100

Real nice small batch brew... I especially like the freshness and dank citrus feel. Will admit I wanted something more satisfying. Maybe it doesn't feel well rounded as it's Vermont's counter parts? Great, none the less~
