Served from a bottle into a pint glass on 6/6/14. My first Lawson's experience. Fresh from Vermont. Excitement is high.

A: A gorgeous, deep orange. Almost luminous. Some chill haze at low tempurtures, but it might just be a hazy brew. Not clean, but without sediment. Yellow/orange head rises and settles nicely at about a finger, it's here to stay. Sticky lacing all over the glass.

S: Oranges and mangos up front. Lots of smooth, inviting hops. Not too much earth, more like fresh cut grass. Bit of malt if you're searching. Reminds me of Jai-Alai but bouncier and cleaner.

T: This is the liquid equivalent of an orange mangrove. Sweet clementines with a bitter citrus finish. Hoppy all throughout but not overpowering at all. Simple, elegant, definitely lives up to its name.

M: Smooth, not creamy. Medium carbonation, but inviting and easy to drink. Completely sessionable. Direct flavors that linger pleasantly. The sip coats your mouth in that characteristic IPA hoppiness without depositing the discouraging taste of broccoli rabe in your throat.

O: One of the best session IPAs I've ever had the honor to drink. Ridiculously good. Summertime baby.
