Poured this into a DFH IPA glass.

A: Pours a deep orangey yellow color. There's about a finger to finger and a half white sudsy head on this. What a gorgeous pour. There's also a generous amount of lacing left on the glass.

S: Grapefruits and pine absolutely invade my nose. There's also a touch of mild malts that come through. Great, great smell.

T: Pine is the main taste that my palate picks up. There are some grapefruit with a little malts coming through. I totally wish my palate would pick up citrus, but it picks up pine. By reading other reviews I can tell that citrus should be the star here. Unfortunately, but not, I pick up the piney flavors. There's definitely some malts built into this as well. A hop bomb, but it's definitely not 1 dimensional. As I drink this more and more I pick up some of these citrus flavors. The grapefruit is a pleasant addition here. Definitely an enjoyable experience.

M: A very bitter ending here. Nothing horrible, but nothing mind blowing. It's quite solid. A drying finish with a medium body. A little heavier than the average single IPA, but there's nothing wrong with that. No alcohol burn at all, but at 6.90% I wouldn't expect it.

Overall: This is my first Lawson's beer (aside from the collab with Jack's Abby) and this is an awesome beer. I had the pleasure of having this, among my 2 Double Sunshines and other Chinooker'd being packed by Sean Lawson himself at the farmer's market in Waitsfield. If I knew how good this brew was I would've jumped over the table and given him a hug. A good guy that makes some incredible beer. I'm happy to have experienced this and I'm glass I have another in the fridge.
