look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle courtesy of tommyguz pours a hazed gold color with a modest cap of off-white head. Retention is average and lacing slightly above.

oohhh nice...nose is very juicy pine and tropical hops. Malts are light and biscuity. West coast style here and a very formidable one by the smell of it. Impressed.

The hops are very wet and juicy tasting, but not overly bitter. I usually dont pair pine and tropical together for hop descriptors, but this is a rare example. Malts remain light and basically just get out of the way. Mouthfeel is ok, not as creamy as I might like to see, but that is a minor complaint. Pretty simplistic in nature, but damn it is pretty fucking tasty! Nice surprise here, I like it.

Have had this one several times, and figured I should review (I've also been ticking too much due to shares and am hoping to break that trend). Poured from a can into the 2014 KBS tulip.

A- Pour results in a finger of white head that has decent retention. Fades to some lingering carbonation on top and some lacing on the glass. Dull, somewhat hazy orange in color.

S- Beautiful bouquet on this beer. Quite dank, smelling of a freshly cut lawn, with some piney resin, and grapefruit/orange aromas. Sweet citrus with a hint of caramel from the malt. Love the nose in this one.

T- Not quite as impressive as the aroma, but lovely, nonetheless. LOTS of hop bitterness that fortunately has a good malt presence to balance it out. Getting mostly grapefruit and grass on the taste. The bitterness really lingers, too, which I always like.

M- Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. The level of carbonation is just right. If there were more, this beer would be hard to drink. Love the way the hops linger. This beer is deceptively smooth.

O- Lavery is an up and coming brewery that is doing many things well, including this beer. Low ABV with huge aromas and flavors, without sacrificing the mouthfeel. Try their beers if the opportunity presents itself.

Can > Alpine Spring bow-tie glass.

A - Cloudy gold with some yeast floating around, big fluffy off white two finger marshmallow head, patches of thick lacing.
S - Dank grass, pine and earthy scents, fresh lemon and lime juice, some white grape, orange juice, light bread malt.
T - Excellent balance of malt, hops, sweetness. Definitely get those dank qualities, lots of citrus juice in the middle, crisp lemongrass, light bread malt.
M - Clean and bright, lighter on feel, easily drinkable.
O - One of my favorite session beers as of recent, this dominates All Day IPA by a long shot. This paired with Southern Tier Live, and Terrapin RecreationAle, are my top 3 session beers.

Can from a locals swap with a great trader. Pours a hazy light copper with a two finger fluffy off white head. Big grapefruit aroma with plenty of toffee malt backing. Flavor is bitter up front with pine and grapefruit, then toffee and caramel malts follow on the palate with the sweetness lingering. Prickly carbonation, slightly dry on the finish. Full of flavor, definitely an easy coast style. Solid brew and my first from Lavery.

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

A- pours a hazy golden-yellow color with a nice two-finger foamy white head, great retention long after the pour

S- big leafy and floral hop aromas with some orange zest, tropical fruity notes of pineapple and mango with a hint of mint, very nice

T- tropical fruity flavors stand out up front with lots of mango and pineapple, a nice sugary sweet maltiness mid-palate, followed by some floral hop flavors finishing dry

M- medium body and carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel with a crisp finish, very drinkable

O- a nice balance is achieved with some great tropical and floral hop flavors being complimented by a sweet malty backbone. High drinkability makes this one go down too easily

Pours a pale copper slightly hazed body with a big bubbled white head, forms thick chunky banded lacing for nice appearance. Aroma has straight up citrus peel and pineapple notes it's tropical fruit mélange of love of the hops. Flavors up front bitterness balanced with pale biscuit malts this beer drinks effortlessly dead on body with even keeled carbonation slick oily feel poured from a can I'm looking for a case of this stuff soon. Definitely worth it especially while it's as fresh as this sample is!!!

- can. unfiltered.

A: Tarnished orange pour has a bready textured head off white in color that was soapy and bubbly, especially around the glass walls. Healthy dose of carbonation within, with some soapy patches on the vessel remaining for lace with a high rate of coverage appeal. Not to much signage of the unfiltered nature, clarity was rather good and distinguishable.

S: Sweet and fruity exit from the can showed some fresh fruitiness of mangos. In the vessel dry grains dominated, the hops settling down a bit the aroma didnt seem as enticing or fresh and exciting as first opened.

T: Toasted grain, bread, light dry warmth of comforting citrus. Bit of orange-pine hops, even toned bitterness, floury grains with a leave of lemony toastedness.

M: Mouthful was smooth, slippery and lightly syrupy with a moderate awareness of carbonation.

O: Overall a even toned bitterness, not to dry, not to bitter, good balance of malts and hops. The flavor was ok, a bit laid back, nothing that would jump and grab your attention. Could of benefited from a bit more complexity for multiple drinking sake, as it stands ones not enough to encourage a second offering. A middle of the road safe play in the tough and competitive field of ipas that would hardly get noticed.
