3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bomber from PhillyCraft. Thanks again Vin. This one pours an orange color with an off white head. The aroma is not as "chinooky" as I might have thought. More citrus and tropical fruit with a little floral and spiciness. Sweeter malts in the background is probably from the caramunich. The flavor is the same. A bit sweet for my taste, but it’s nicely balanced with a big fruity, citrus hoppiness. A little spice. Nice bitter finish. A tasty drinker. I still can’t believe this is an all Chinook beer. Never tasted them like this before.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich golden color with a foamy three finger head. Ripe hop aromas of zesty grapefruit, sappy pine resin and clean focused malt. Nice flavor profile from front to back... starting out with a citrus forward punch and growing very piney and bitter on the backend. Tasty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Typical golden amber pour with a vivacious well lasting head. Very dense resinous herbals with citrus and evergreen abounding. Very classic Lawson house character here- vibrant but also dripping with resinous goodness. Sticky, but never sweet. Medium body with caressing carbonation. Stellar.

Catching up with an old rating.
Appears bright honey color that is slightly hazy. Off white head that goes to a ring. The smell is nice piney hops, sweet malt, citrus. taste is more citrus and a bit of caramel malt with a touch of pine. It has a long lingering aftertaste. Light/medium body with nice carbonation. Like all of the lawson’t beers that I’ve had - it’s tasty!
