Bottle to Hop Back Pint glass

A:Dark almost brown orange honey color with a white and tan head that leaves a heavy lacing. It is extremely cloudy, hazy, and completely opaque there are even a few floaters that I can see in there. This might be a downside for most people but for me its an upside.

S: Lots of fresh hops there are few different smells first of all there is definitely some pine resin hops as you can almost smell the bitterness, next there is come heavy citrus/juicy like mango scents in there as well and last there are some light floral scents. The hop scent is totally dominant but thats what your going for in an imperial IPA.

T: Upfront there is a harsh bitterness but it is not floral it is rather very tart citrus like grapefruit with notes of pine with some resin but it is not overwhelming. There is a juicy flavor to the hops as well but that is pretty much all that is there. Very solid hop bomb flavor.

M: It is resinous and sticks to your tongue but not for a long time as there is also plenty of citrus mango juiciness to it. The beer is also very thick and heavy but you can't taste any alcohol dispute it being pretty high. In terms of the drinkability its not bad considering how heavy and big it is.

O: Overall this is a big hoppy in your face imperial IPA as with any other heavy duty lawson's but also like those beers this beer is actually drinkable and not overwhelming. Considering the depth of hop flavor I cannot help but tip my hat to a hop master sean lawson get this if you can and drink it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange with a nice white head. Good surface foam and retention.

Smell - Herbal hops. Some grapefruit. Lots of sweet malts. Alcohol.

Taste - Herbal hops right up from. A citrus sweetness builds in the middle. It's a blend of hops and sweet malts. Finishes dry, surprisingly. Boozy, though.

Mouthfeel - It's boozy but it's quite drinkable. Medium heavy body.

Overall - Very good, but there are better IPAs of the same style. Lawson's never disappoints, though.
