Bottles from the Warren Store, consumed once back home, reviewed from notes. Golden in color with a rich bone-white head. The Jade brings all the tropical lovely stuff I’ve come to expect from the NZ varietals - kiwi and mango with a big floral contingent and some peppery citrus zest. Pale and caramel malts bring a light sweetness and a nice, even grain flavor. Medium in body and carbonation. Balanced bitterness to finish. Loving the IPAs that Lawson’s is bringing to the table - some of the best anywhere.

22 oz bottle courtesy of Kyle. Thank you for sharing this!

Cloudy unfiltered golden yellow with some long lasting stickage and some stringy lace.

Earthy, green onions, lemon, and biscuit malts.

Interesting hop here: almost tastes old without being old. Muted green onion and vegetal notes, and a crisp bitterness at the finish that only lingers briefly.

Bubbles on the tongue, appropriate carbonation and medium bodied.

Another well executed Lawson's beer, even if the flavors don't fit my wheelhouse. The hop profile may turn some off, but there's no qc issues or any other major dings here.
