22oz bomber. Fairly light pale ale pour. Typical fruity nose but a very unpleasent body order type scent dominates. Taste was fruity and quite good. I just can’t get past the nose.

good floral dipa, more of a west coast style ipa than east coast, very floral and grapefruit more than citrusy, which is nice in a dipa. easy to drink and more than likely, share with a friend, abv is hidden well.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 Tap at ACBF. Hazy copper pour with a fluffy head. Aroma and flavor are both slammed with peach, apricot, mango, and pine hop presence. Reminds me a bit of Sculpin, but more sticky and sweet, and with more evergreen. The hops at the finish lose just a touch of its character and become more non-deScript in their bitterness, which keeps this from the upper echelon of the style. Still, very good. Rerate 9/14/14 -- I’ve had this a couple times since my first rating, but this is the bottle that made me want to up my rating. Gorgeously clean on the palate, and there is a remarkable combination of sticky, old school resinous hops still in the foreground, but beautiful mango and papaya shows itself in the background as well. Lovely stuff.

Thx to BaconSausage for the surprise! Batch 204 bottle 30. Hazy gold pour with a fluffy white head and a little spotty lace. Tropical fruit aroma with a twist of pine. Flavor follows suite maybe a little too much malt if I had to nit pick but otherwise a solid brew.

22 oz bottle shared at Kan’s. Thanks! Pours a nice well hazed golden hue, a bit darker but glowing with moderate frothy head. Laces ok. Aromas are vibrant citrus, melons and grapefruit with some bready malts, toast, and pale malts. With some rounded citrus, florals. Initial is medium bodied, a healthy citrus bite, lemons and grapefrui, oranges moving into peaches, vibrant florals, touches of grass, some light dry pine. Finish is dry, some sticky malts, bready, with some toast. Lingering sticky sweet malts, bright vibrant citrus and florals. Mmmmmm. A bit sweet into the finish but light and easily drinkable.

Huge, huge thanks to imagineiii for sending this bottle my way. I’ve been looking to try this for awhile now. Served in a Bruery tulip. Pours a bright, clear golden yellow color with a good white head and plenty of lacing as it goes down. The nose immediately lets me know that this is going to be delicious. It has loads of citrus character along with a bit of pine; slightly dank. Great hoppiness. The flavor carries the same notes, and the citrus hop character pairs really well with a great amount of bitterness. Very good. Light to medium body with a great dry finish. Very, very nice overall.

So glad to get a taste of this - thanks, main man! I found it a very nice DIPA, with a mix of extremely pungent dry hops and quite assertive fruit, specifically pineapple. Lovely mouthfeel, creamy and crisp at once. Yummy as it is, seems to get a bit more raves than normal owing to its rarity. But still a rocker.

Props to Chris for this super fresh bottle, batch 192, bottle # 117... Pours a murky light gold, dark in the middle, a little ugly. A nice white head, great retention and lacing... The aroma is fantastic, so fresh, just plucked pine needles with pineapples and an assortment of tropical fruits... Taste is equally great, bitting pine and alcohol of a dipa, but muted and so drinkable. This is awesome, must try.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 In short: A superb easy to drink blonde Double IPA with a complex hop profile.
How: Tap at Black Back pub, Waterbury VT
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head with good retention
In long: Nose is an explosion of floral, tropical fruits, grassy and foresty hops. It’s all there, it’s bright and vibrant. Plenty of crackers-like pale malts to provide a full body while leaving all the flavor space to for the hops. Aforementioned hops (floral, tropical fruits, grassy and foresty) in large quantities. Despite being a heavily hopped 8% brew the beer is actually not aggressive. No alcohol presence. Somewhat refreshing and sessinonable (ouch!). Another mighty fine hoppy ale from Lawsons. I hope Lawsons will one day expand their operation because they make superb IPAs. Man that was good. I had too much to drink again at this beer event and now I’m afraid there might actually be something wrong with me. It’s probably nothing but sometimes I wonder if I should I be concerned that my liver is making strange noises or that my right testicle is larger than my other two.
