First had on cask/draft at the Lawson's tap takeover at Prohibion Pig, but this review is from a 22oz bottle purchased at the Lawson's farmers market release less then a week ago. Poured into Lawson's tulip.
A- Pours a yellowish brownish orange with about a finger of foamy head that has great retention slowly receding to a thin layer and coating the sides of the glass with foamy lacing. Nice consistent rising carbonation.
S- Some grapefruit, dry hops, a little bit earthy, sweet malts. A little bit above average aroma strength, nicely balanced between hops and malts.
T- Grapefruit, honey, lightly sweet malts, finishes a with a little bit of bitterness and a lingering aftertaste of grapefruit balanced with malts. Not as fruity/citrusy as some IPAs, but very well balanced and pretty tasty.
M- Medium bodied, fairly dry with a little bit of a juicy finish, nice carbonation.
O- Not my favorite of the Lawson's IPAs, but definitely another world class IPA. This IPA was extremely well balanced and very easy drinking. Not the fruitiest of IPAs, but definitely a nice hoppy presence. It isn't Double Sunshine or Hopzilla, but like all Lawson's IPAs I definitely recommend checking this out. You can't go wrong with Lawson's.

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.
