4.08/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

22oz bomber poured into Lawson's snifter. Purchased at the farmer's market release on Saturday.

A- Pours a translucent golden brown with about a finger's worth of white frothy head with a slight yellow hue to it. Head recedes to a thin frothy layer coating the glass in lacing. Nice consistent rising carbonation bubbles.

S- Fairly light hops (definitely get some centenial and cascade), a little bit of grapefruit, pine, pale malts, some spices (almost get a little bit of nutmeg), some pilsner characteristics. Not overly aromatic, but definitely pleasant.

T- Pale malts, a little bit of pine, some light grapefruit, finishes with a hint of bitterness and some pilsen malts that gives the beer a slight pilsner quality. Fairly well balanced, but would have liked a little bit more hops.

M- Medium bodied to a little bit on the light side, very easy drinking, nice level of carbonation.

O- This was a very interesting and easy drinking beer. It was kind of a hybrid between an APA and a Pilsner which made it fairly unique. Overall this beer was very well done, but I think I would have liked it a little bit better with a little bit more hops. Not my favorite Lawson's beer, but definitely worth trying out.

Thanks to ActonBrewer for sending this one. Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Fat Head's pint glass.

A: Hazy deep gold, with a thin white head and relatively low visible carbonation.

S: Grassy, tropical and citrus hops over a light cracker malt.

T: Nice restrained tropical and citrus hop flavors with lesser grassy and floral character, and light cracker malts. Lightly bitter in the hang.

M: Light body but not watery, no alcohol presence to speak of and medium carbonation sensation.

O: Unfortunately, I got this bottle probably a bit later than would have been ideal for a fresh-hopped beer. Even so, it really is a solid APA. Restrained hop bitterness but still quite flavorful.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a willi becher glass.
Pours a medium to light amber with one finger high of tiny bubble head.
Smell is very nice, very floral, more than I'm used to from Lawsons.
Taste is right in line with smells, some good sweetness.
Mouthfeel was clean.
Overall, a very nice and very drinkable IPA from Sean.

Hazy straw colored beer with a nice white head. Limited nose. Some grassiness. Fairly thin mouthfeel. Taste is refreshing, grassy, and very clean. Almost like a pilsner or lager body with very light hop presence. It does give me that harvest feel like being in a field in Vermont. Very refreshing beer not necessarily the hop presence you'd expect though.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slightly hazy orange. Nice white head and a chunky collar. Faint wisps.

Smell - Light citrus hop. Very grainy. Light caramel sweet aroma.

Taste - Citrus hop flavor is a little more pronounced. Grainy body. A little grassy in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very light and crisp. Minimal hop bitterness.

Overall - Pretty bland. Nothing bad going on, but a bland hop flavor.
