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.
