4.48/5 rDev +1.1%
22oz bomber from the most recent anniversary party. Thanks to Joe for generously hooking me up with this. Poured into a Lawson's snifter today, 5/1/2014.
A- Clear medium copper body, two finger offwhite head with great retention and sticky as heck lacing. Looks great.
S- Pine, grapefruit, citrus. But definitely pine forward. Really balanced out with a nice caramel backbone. All I can say is that it smells really, really hoppy but in a great way. It built up anticipation for the first sip. And continues to smell great as it warms up.
F- This is a really balanced beer despite its hoppiness. I think it's the 11.1% ABV that indicates that there was plenty of caramel and toffee malt backbone to balance out the tons of pine and citrus flavours. The pine is definitely the strongest flavour of the bunch; this is what I wished Chinooker'd was, to be honest. So balanced yet each individual component comes out so intensely.
M- Typical Vermont pale ale mouthfeel. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy and most importantly, so crushable for the 11.1% ABV. Even as it warms, I don't smell the fusel or booze. That's how you know you've got a well-crafted DIPA on your hands.
O- Really great beer and certainly very appropriate for each Lawson's anniversary. Double Sunshine is definitely better, but this one is nothing to laugh at, and it's probably not even a fair comparison to make as they are very different DIPAs. I really enjoyed the super pine-forward nature that is still somehow balanced out by the malt backbone. Well done.

3.95/5 rDev -10.8%
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.
