Bottle courtesy of Jeremy. Thanks!
A: Very cloudy straw color. There’s almost a film on this. Great legs, but this is ugly.
N: What. the. hell? Is this a bad bottle? Burnt onion powder and a flavor that the group described as stale, overcooked broccoli. Vegetal. The hops are, uh... More onion. Some citrus...I think?
T: Slightly better, but that’s not a sterling compliment. Earth, biscuit, pine, and a moderate spiciness. Onion power is less prevalent, but then all the sudden, oh, god, the sharpness. Please someone stop the astringency. Stop. Ugh.
M: Sticky. A good thing normally, but then it becomes the worst part of the beer because it cause the beer to stick to the palate and remind you of all the dry unpleasant flavors. Need water.
O: I don’t know if this is a bad bottle or what, but after seeing this was named after the daughter, I had to wonder if they don’t like their girl? Bad, bad, bad.

22 oz bottle courtesy of Kyle. Thank you for sharing this!
Cloudy unfiltered golden yellow with some long lasting stickage and some stringy lace.
Earthy, green onions, lemon, and biscuit malts.
Interesting hop here: almost tastes old without being old. Muted green onion and vegetal notes, and a crisp bitterness at the finish that only lingers briefly.
Bubbles on the tongue, appropriate carbonation and medium bodied.
Another well executed Lawson's beer, even if the flavors don't fit my wheelhouse. The hop profile may turn some off, but there's no qc issues or any other major dings here.

Out of my Long Trail Brewmaster's glass, 22oz bottle.
A- A very bright golden straw color. Very nice clarity, with a frothy white head. Tons of lacing, and the head retains very well. Has a nice glow to it.
S- A fairly muted scent of grass, light citrus, and peach. While I expected a bit more even from a single IPA, it is still has a nice aroma.
T- Very nice and smooth at first, the hops slowly fade into presence with some light bitterness. The hop profile is fairly perfumey to me, with a slight dryness. I almost get some lavender flavors.
M- One of the stronger points of this beer. Good body and carbonation, with just the right hop flavor. Very well balanced.
O- Overall this is a pretty solid IPA. While It's certainly not my favorite hop variety, it is quite different and interesting. The base beer is very nice, but could just use a bit more hop smell/flavor. If you like a nice crisp, dry IPA, this is a great beer for you.
