Poured from a bottle delivered to the store this week, no bottle date, into a modified tulip glass.
A - A lazy troupe of tiny bubbles meander through a sunset orange colored body, with some coaxing a thin cap can be created. Not "flat" just lazy, lacing hangs tough in small patches through the entire experience.
S - Hop forward for sure, grapefruit, lemon skin, orange reduction and dark honey lead, with light malts supporting the whole thing.The nose is rich in aromatics and with interesting interplay. Temperature increase brings forward less tropical and more deciduous notes, Piney with a better representation of that malt displayed.
T - An immediate fight ensues between the tropical notes and earthy piney flavors, they call a truce and the consumer wins. Richer fruits than the nose lets on pop right up. Pineapple, and orange with blood orange green melon and some pepper notes add to a wonderful experience.
M - Oily, slick coating of the palate, starting things off. The tongues edges roll up some with that bitterness, giving way to a sweet finish. Lingering for some time the bitter notes close the deal with a surprise comeback. All this occurs in a tight range showing fine craft by the brewer.
O - A fine IPA with justified high regard. Well constructed, big in flavor and quite enjoyable. Happy to have finally tried this offering from Lawson.
Cheers
