Just picked up at the bevy in Winooski. Bottle to HF baloon glass.

A: Pours an opaque gold/amber with a 3 finger pure white head. Head slowly recedes to a light film on top of the surface and leaves beautiful lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: Not quite as aromatic as DS or Triple Play. There is a little citrus character, but mostly resinous pine.

T: Pine, lots of pine. And a bit of a sweet malt flavor.

M: Good carbonation and body. Wet and slick on the tongue, makes you want another sip.

O: Another top quality offering from Lawson's. I prefer the juicy, citrusy flavors of DS or Triple play, but if you're looking for some resinous pine flavors this is the ticket.

Great new beer. Not as good as Double Sunshine, but better than Spring Fever. It has a good hop nose and a hoppy smell. Nice color, kind of a thin lacing that pours to a large head when poured straight into the glass. Think most hop heads would rate this beer higher than I have rated it.
