ThirstyBird (1696) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a clear honey color with a light tan head. The smell is pine, citrus, grapefruit. The taste follows the smell ending dry and quite bitter. Medium body with fine carbonation. Nice bitter IPA.

ICEatALAMO (990) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. The pour is bright orange. The aroma is hoppy for sure, but not overpowering. The taste a solid ipa for sure. Smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Berard (338) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with thin white head that lingers. Hop aroma over mild carbonation. Reasonable hop complexity in a non dipa style ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AdamJackson (2870) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle from the early January Farmers market. Kept cold in the fridge. split with my lawson’s loving buddy. Golden orange, off white 2 finger head. Nose is citrus for days. More grapefruit and a touch of clementine. solid mouthfeel. Not an explosive IPA by any means but the taste is in line with the nose. Could easily drink this all by myself.

joeneugs (3474) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 1, 2014
22. oz. bottle. It pours a rather hazy orange color with an off white head. The aroma has some juicy hops, tangerine and melon rind with a touch of apple cider that’s a bit off putting. The flavor is ok, with some dank, piney hops, melon rind and intense piney bitterness in the finish. The flavor relies too much on bitterness for me and lacks the explosive aroma I like in this style. Not too bad, but disappointing.

CraftBeerLvr41 (82) - Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2014
A: Really clear (week in fridge most likely helped) and light copper in color. Had a really nice white head and retention. S: Really love the aroma on this. At first I got some fruity tropical fruit notes, melon and mango. Then I get some dank pines and notes of freshly cut grass. T: Flavor is a bit faint, but has some melon and pine. Get some bready notes from the malt. M: Good carbonation and a bit light. Fairly dry and crisp like how I love my DIPA’s. O: Another nice beer from Lawson’s. I wouldn’t mind one bit having this beer again.

vtafro (3795) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Spice, herbal and grassy hop aromas. Flavor is grassy and herbal but also malty.

PhillyCraft (3431) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle split with Brian, pours clearish copper, aromas of fruit, caramel, hops, skunks, and farts. taste is bitter and aggressiveness as far as hops go. Back of throat. Wish they didn’t clear it out so much. Still nice flavor but kills your buzz slightly.
