Released Nov 12, 2015, opened Nov 21, 2015

A - Beautiful pour. Three fingers of bone-white head on top of a bright peach gold body. Nice retention and lace.

S - Really odd nose. Roast beef and strawberry jam... hopefully there isn't something wrong with the bottle.

O - Unfortunately there is definitely something wrong with this bottle. Malt body with pine, cilantro and a touch of citrus but then loaded with a off-flavor of roast beef through the finish.

M - Smooth medium body.

O - A contaminated bottle. Sucks given how much we traded to get it :(

So nice to revisit last night after a long absence. Wish it were available more often. Wonderful beer. One of my top 5 DIPAs. More juicy than heady. More dank than haze. It's a nice combination of tropical and resiny. Classic Lawson's mouthfeel. Nose isn't social and it's a tiny bit too sweet for me, but otherwise almost perfect.

L-The pour is cloudy and golden. The head is immense and makes me wait for it recede to finish my pour.
S- Much like Sip of Sunshine it is very fruity and floral.
T-It starts out quite bitter in a grapefruity way. My palate eventually adjust and I find myself enjoying the beer longer the more I drink it.
F-Light, well carbonated, and the finish is dry due to the bitterness.
O- Another very good IPA from Lawson's. I feel like it it too similar to sip though. Still glad I got a chance to try it.

Very traditional look. Bronze orange one finger head that stays very well. Elite lacing. Great clean hop smell. Get the scent from a few feet away. Noticeable malt backbone. A dank resin on the taste and feel. Some orange & peel. A little juicy and a little sticky. Medium carbonation.

Bomber bought at Winooski Beverage Warehouse. This was poured into a Lawson’s tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange almost brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that concaved gracefully to leave some bubbles inside of a thin white cap. The smell starts off with a sweet onion up front and then some light tropical fruits and a delicate sweet and bitter sprucy piney stickiness. The taste was mainly bitter backed up by a light sweet tropical fruit revolving around the pine. Bitter sticky piney-ness leading into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a good sipping quality and a danky sweet stickiness clinging to my tongue. Some slight hop oils lay down to want to allow a certain slick feel, but still indicates a well balanced oily to slick and clinginess on my tongue. Overall, what a wonderful DIPA that I know I would have again.
