Bottle To Dogfish Head IPA glass

A: Orange honey colored that is totally completely cloudy and to ally opaque. It has a bright white heady that goes up about 2in but dissipates quickly. Not the cleanest IPA but matches the hop profile

S: wow citrus fruit city there is definitely some oranges in there and some mango as well, but they are definitely hops in there. It smells juicy and fresh i really just wanna dive in

T: The taste follows the nose with lots of citrusy and juicy hops, however that is not all that is there by any means. It has a crisp taste a nice more subtile hop bitterness (given this is clearly a hop bomb) and is not overwhelming in fact it is almost delicate as apposed to resiny and lasts on the tongue for quite a while for each sip. Has a lot of flavor for a single IPA but is well balanced as well which is not easy to do.

M: It has a crisp bitter feel upfront it is not quite resiny though. It is very light for an IPA and so thin its almost watery. The carbonation is almost undetectable but it goes go down very easily given the alcohol content, super drinkable.

O: This a a great really drinkable hop forward IPA with lots of juicy citrusy hops, but it is well balanced. This is the best single IPA i have had from lawson's and is actually a close second to Double Sunshine I remember not being blown away in the past but having it fresh it really is a high quality beer I highly recommend.

22 oz gold foil topped bottle purchased at Warren Store two days ago. Served in a Lawson's snifter.

Pours a hazed dark golden amber with a frothy off white head that fades to a thick collar, thin film and abundant clumps of lace. Green, resiny and dank nose of Citra and Simcoe hops. Light malt notes, with earthy and leafy hops balancing the citric and tropical hops. Medium thick, well carbonated body with a sticky dry finish. Taste is green, resiny hops, simcoe forward with more cent. hops in the finish to balance out the sweetness. Not quite as bright as Double Sunshine or Hopzilla, a more textbook IPA that still lives up to the Lawson's HYPE.

Lawson Triple Play IPA pours a hazy light orange with small creamy head. The foam is slow to dissolve leaving behind spots and lines of lace.

The aroma has strong orange and grapefruit citrus. Some sweet caramel malt and lemon rind are also present.

Each sip of this full bodied beer is smooth and slightly creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor is loaded with orange and grapefruit citrus, grass, tropical fruit and some lemon peel. Some sweet pale and caramel malt are in the background and help sweeten the beer. It finishes very bitter with lingering grass and orange citrus.

This beer has tons of flavor. Lots of citrus with a fair amount of sweetness to try and balance it out.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky honey orange with a beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and tropical fruit. Taste is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and some herbal hop flavors. There is a medium amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a pretty amazing aroma but the taste just doesn’t quite match up.
