3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Alex! Cloudy orange & amber body with a soapy, eggshell head that settles rather quickly. Aroma is full of light pine, flowers, perfume, light hints of citrus peel in the finish. Clean & hopped, not much malt. Taste is bitter pines, pungent floral notes, perfume, heavy grass, light white pepper, & some finishing citrus peels. Pale cracker malt in the finish, but mostly pungent pines. Very nice brew.

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.

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.

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.
