22oz. bottle poured into snifter.

A= Copper, but not red/amber, hint of orange. A little bit of haze, but fairly clear compared to many NE IPA/DIPA. The lacing is seriously crazy, sticky, syrupy, beautiful.

S= A bit more muted, a bit less in my face than expected, but still appealing. I get tropical, citrus (especially grapefruit and orange zest) as well as some malt sweetness and pine.

T= Deep hoppy flavors, mostly tropical fruits but definitely some earthy dankness, pine, and malt sweetness. I want to drink more.

M= Fairly full bodied with a bit of syrupy feel on the palate. Moderate carbonation.

O= This met my expectations. I have had Triple Sunshine multiple times, but rarely get a full bottle of this. I love Sip of S, but this is a completely different beer and blows it out of the water.

Finally had one and it was worth the weight. The smell was fantastic. Pine and citrus truly shine through here. SOS on steroids. Wasn't easy to find but I would get it again in a heartbeat. Don't pass this one up.

Bottle poured into a snifter glass with a hazy copper color (not too dark though) with a decent amount of white frothy head. There is a good amount of lacing as the head subsides. The aroma was straight dank; you get a lot of pine and citrus with this one. The taste pretty much follows suit with a nice even balance throughout the whole bottle. The mouth feel has solid carbonation (not too much, not too little) with a slight dry finish on the palate. The hype surrounding this beer is definitely real. Lawson's totally delivered with this one!! Cheers!
