Super Session #8Super Session #8
Notes: Super Session #8 is designed to be a light and refreshing beer with low alcohol, yet the full hop character of a Session IPA. Each beer in our Super Session series is brewed with with the same malt base and specialty malts but features a different single-hop variety. Super Session #8 is brewed with copious amounts of Mosaic hops. Go ahead, you can have more than one… Cheers!

had this on tap.

pour is clear golden with nice bright white head, big soapy bubbles. ridiculous lacing. light aromas are matched on palate. some grapefruit and citric notes, grassy and herbal green notes, hint of berry, very crisp and a touch of pine on the finish. light bodied carbonated mouthfeel, similar to #2. overall very easy drinking and enjoyable - the flavor profile wont blow you away, but there is definitely something to be said for low abv beers that are supremely refreshing and crushable.

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow. Moderate amount of carbonation bubbles. A finger of white head. Nice sticky lacing with a small amount of retention.

S: Very fragrant. Strong mosaic hops. Juicy. Some light malts. More Juice. For a “session” IPA the smell is great.

T/M: Hops. Mosaic Hops. Hops. Bitter. Juicy. Tropical. Pine and a little herbal. Mostly tropical. Malts are subdued but present. Creamy with a nice carbonation tingle. Hop bitterness does linger. The overal taste does fade slightly as the beer warms.

O: Solid “Session” IPA. Probably the best one I’ve tried. It’s hop forward, but still has excellent drinkability.

Cheers!!

glad to have had this one make its way out to colorado this fall, still seeing it around town a little bit and its still tasting exceptional. its so obviously mosaic hopped, you get the fresh tropical fruit complexion in the nose and the now familiar fruitiness in the flavor is well. this has just a little bit of that sometimes seen cat pee thing to it, especially in the nose, maybe a product of it being a little older now, but its pretty easy to look past that to an incredible beer. light haze and a huge rising white head from the top, it looks gorgeous in the glass. pineapple, both fresh and canned come to mind in the aroma, light melon and citrus from the mosaic too on top of a fresh pale barley malt base that may include a pinch of white wheat. the flavor is right there too, mosaic for days, but very little bitterness, juicy and bright, slightly oily, white grape, pineapple, and orange notes, rying finish and a round feeling grain base thats ry and soft but still a contributor here. great carbonation, rushing and alive, long mosaic hop finish, the essence of this hop, exposed there on the tongue, botanical and delicious. i havent had enough of these super session series beers, but this is up there with the best hoppy stuff i have had from lawsons. awesome it came to colorado, hopefully a sign of more lawsons to come!

12oz can into IPA glass
Canned on 7/11/19
Pours a clear gold with big rocky head
Tropical dank piney aroma
Taste is light malt, followed by peach and apricot, with a dank finish
Feel is light bodied as it should be
This is a nice example of a session IPA, light malt and body, yet full of hop notes

From the can, it pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice fluffy head. Hops Hops and hops in the nose, a bit of pine and maybe some citrus. Flavorful in the mouth, with piney hops bursting through in a delectable explosion in the mouth. Yum!!
