Served from a bottle into a pint glass on 6/6/14. My first Lawson's experience. Fresh from Vermont. Excitement is high.

A: A gorgeous, deep orange. Almost luminous. Some chill haze at low tempurtures, but it might just be a hazy brew. Not clean, but without sediment. Yellow/orange head rises and settles nicely at about a finger, it's here to stay. Sticky lacing all over the glass.

S: Oranges and mangos up front. Lots of smooth, inviting hops. Not too much earth, more like fresh cut grass. Bit of malt if you're searching. Reminds me of Jai-Alai but bouncier and cleaner.

T: This is the liquid equivalent of an orange mangrove. Sweet clementines with a bitter citrus finish. Hoppy all throughout but not overpowering at all. Simple, elegant, definitely lives up to its name.

M: Smooth, not creamy. Medium carbonation, but inviting and easy to drink. Completely sessionable. Direct flavors that linger pleasantly. The sip coats your mouth in that characteristic IPA hoppiness without depositing the discouraging taste of broccoli rabe in your throat.

O: One of the best session IPAs I've ever had the honor to drink. Ridiculously good. Summertime baby.

Lawson's Finest Liquids - Spring Fever Session IPA, poured into a Lawson's tulip

Look - Pours a hazy orange with an amber hue. Good sized soapy head that dissipates at a medium pace and leaves a good amount of lacing. This brew has probably half of the "thickness" of its meaner cousin Double Sunshine, which makes sense since it is much less dense and less alcohol.

Smell - Grapefruit and orange hop aroma is lighter than Double Sunshine but only by a smidge but still amazingly juicy with a faint bite at the end, just like Double Sunshine.

Taste - Full flavored for a session brew (slightly watery) for sure. Juicy fruity hops followed by a nice piney bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Sits slightly bitter but fades, doesn't abuse the palate like some others but it definitely has its way with your taste buds due to the bittering hops used. Zero booziness (duh). Good drinkability. Feels medium-bodied but in reality it is on the light side.

Overall - This brew is terrific as session brews go. Most session brews are watered down counterparts to better brews, while I compare this to Double Sunshine, this brew does stand quite well on its own. Recommend for session fans, would say stick to the bigger brews for those who aren't looking for a <4% experience.
