4.5/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap @ Pro Prig, yellow hazy pour,1 finger of soapy white head, spotty lacing.

Aroma is hop forward and quite peachy, no malt detectable.

Taste also very peachy and juicy, very crisp and dry, quite enjoyable and very drinkable.

Mouthfeel on the light side, slightly thin but does not distract from the quality.

Did not realize this was not a brew made on site but by Rock Art instead, but that makes no difference, great beer is great beer regardless of the name. Highly recommended.

EDIT: 6/16/14
Discovered Pro Pig bought Lawson's old equipment,and is now actually brewing their own APA!

Reviewed from memory of many a recent visit to Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, Vt.

A: Beautiful golden orange, reminiscent to a very well-done IPA or APA.

S: Hoppy enough to be an IPA, my guess is there's some Simcoe in there.

T: Very similar to the Rock Art Farmer's Simcoe IPA, another well done, hoppy beer from Rock Art. Fruity, citrusy hops with an adequate malt backbone.

M: Supple and very adequate.

O: Rock Art continues to exceed my previously meager expectations. This and Farmer's Simcoe are among their best. Try this if you are lucky enough to find yourself at Pro Pig, it's a steal--but not as much as it was on its inaugural day, when it was $3 a glass.

On draft at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury, VT.

Poured a hazy bright straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and very good lacing.

The smell featured pine and citrus with a touch of lemon and white pepper.

The taste consisted of upfront Citra hops that soon gave way to the more assertive Simcoe and Amarillo. Pleasant round malts supported the experience.

The mouthfeel was light, carbonated and featured a nice residual bitterness.

Overall a superior APA.
