Big thanks to Dat for hooking up the VT goodness (and the Lawson's glass to go along with this brew!). enjoyed from the lawson's sniftery tulip.
a - brew poured a really murky orange with a thin off white ipa head that fizzled away relatively quick. swirling the glass brought things back to life for a moment, but mostly there was a ring of foamy head on the surface of the glass with mild bubbling. lacing was spotty and stringy.
s - nice citric smell, not very in your face. some grapefruit, some mango, some peach even but far from sticky and sweaty and piney. crisp. nice, but not a hop extreme smell.
t - much like the nose, not a hop explosion but some strong bitterness on the finish. the hops are more bittering than piney. fruity flavoring with bitterness.
m - medium bodied. crisp and refreshing. bitter finish.
o - overall a nice offering from a brewery that makes incredible ipas. not their best, but good none-the-less and always nice to check out a new hop variety. i prefer more of a citric burst and dankness in my IPAs whereas this one has a really subtle and balanced hop flavoring with a decent slap of bitterness. the thing that stands out to me about this beer is its crispness. really like drinking fresh water from a stream.

Bottles from the Warren Store, consumed once back home, reviewed from notes. Golden in color with a rich bone-white head. The Jade brings all the tropical lovely stuff I’ve come to expect from the NZ varietals - kiwi and mango with a big floral contingent and some peppery citrus zest. Pale and caramel malts bring a light sweetness and a nice, even grain flavor. Medium in body and carbonation. Balanced bitterness to finish. Loving the IPAs that Lawson’s is bringing to the table - some of the best anywhere.
