Cloudy Grapefruit in color... Grapefruit flavors along with orange rind and grassy hops... Lingering bitterness follows, but the overall feel is of a very smooth and immensely drinkable ale... Another excellent beer from Lawson's

Mostly clear, just slightly hazy golden color. Lots of of bubbles. A foamy off white head. A thin ring remains. No lacing.

Smells a bit floral, some lemon, grapefruit, honey, and grass. Not a big aroma, honestly.

Nice lemon and yellow grapefruit peel, a bit of pineapple and white peach, cracker, honey, grass, and a touch of pine. Floral. Lightly dry with just a touch of brief piney bitterness.

Light but not watery, crisp, clean, well carbonated, refreshing.

A really good session IPA. One of the better ones. Very refreshing.

Can to becher pint glass. Stamped "20May2020" on the bottom.
The appearance was a fairly bright yellow to stifled golden orange with a small white semi-foamy to bubbly head. Softly dissipated to leave a semi-concave lace here and there.
The aroma had a wonderful blend of sweet floral to a soft danky to earthy hop tone advocating for some clean white bready malts.
The flavor leaned towards the sweet end blending the hops to the malts. Mild aftertaste of danky earth, pine, floral hops and bready malts.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation with some dry stickiness and floral hop bitterness. Finishes fairly clean with floral hop dryness.
Overall, pretty nicely done American IPA well worthy of coming back to.

Loving the new 16oz can format for these (stovepipe cans next!?). Centennial lends itself well to this low-ABV, dry style of IPA. In these types of beers, having some grassy bitterness is nice and refreshing without overwhelming the palate

Exceptional. By far the best of the Super Session family. Crisp full body flavor. Hoppy but it avoids the bitterness that doesn’t excite me about some of the other versions. Very drinkable. Excellent session!

Lawsons must be tasted against all other session IPAs like Carton Boat, and I think #4, this one, would win.
4.8% never tasted so rich.
a) big semi clear light amber w decent lace, not much head.
s) passionfruit, pine, and grapefruit.
t) Taste is the winner. Large, fruity IPA, pithy and grassy, complex with notes of passionfruit, peach, grapefruit, and orange.
f) light bodied, but feels satisfying with crisp mouthfeel.

The best session IPA?

Better than I expected. Citrusy and floral. A nice showcase of a classic old school hop.
