Fresh bottle in Vermont. This is one unusual ale. It smells fruity -- mangos and a fair amount of orange juice -- but it tastes earthy and piney. I’ve never had a single hop Chinook IPA before, so I am chocking it up to the hop variety, but this is a chameleon of a beer.

22oz bottle thanks to Steve. Pours out a hazy golden topped with a small head. Nose is a little catty pine and citrus. Taste is more of the heavy hops bitterness and a nice malt bill.

jkwood04 (5281) - Connecticut, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle into a wine glass at Split Thy Skull barley wine fest. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and piney and light grapefruit hops, pale and caramel malts, and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad at all.

mathieuc (3328) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
Pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of resinous hops and light onion. Taste is sweet and moderately bitter, offers flavors of caramel, fruits and onion. Body is medium and carbonation medium-medium-high. Overall a fair IPA, a bit weak by Lawson’s Finest standard though.

Overheard: "You know I like it dry." "Your hand is a little dry." "It’s wintertime."

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber in color with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt, piney hop and some sweetness. Bitter hop flavor with malt and pine before a grassy finish.

djd07 (10018) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy orange with thick frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong pine, grapefruit, hemp, and resin. Thick mouthfeel with strong bitter hop bite, tropical fruits, pine, and lingering bitterness. Very impressive.

WillRunForBeer (2269) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours cludy orange gold with a big clingy white head. Aroma is dank, grapefruit, pine. Pale malt backbone is dominated by grapefruit peel, grass bitterness. Oily finish. Bitterness lingers.

bottle shared at Phatdog1’s place by Rob B. The bottle is only 13 days old, Score!! Great aromas of floral, citrus, tropical fruits and hints of spruce. Taste is very pronounced and dank. Leafy green hops, traces of hemp, grassy and notes of pine in the finish. The bitterness lingers for awhile and the texture is real dry. This is a beauty.
