4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Pours a clear golden orange color with a white foamy head on top, nice retention with streaky lacing all down the sides.
S: I was expecting it to be much more pungent but still very nice. I smell alot of tropical fruit (mango, pineapple) to start then some citrus, orange, and grapefruit. There was a little bit of pine and light caramel. A bit of sweetness as well.
T: Just like the aroma lots of citrus fruit mixed with a little bit of pine. Grapefruit and a big of orange and orange peel. On the back end it get bready malt notes.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, dry on the tongue (love that).
O: Really enjoy this beer but not as in your face as I thought it would be, really nice aroma and flavor that is dry and not really sweet. One of my favorites for sure.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber.
Liquid gold is the color, huge head that settles to 3 fingers, quite billowing. Rings cling to the side of the glass, swirling of bubbles ate every pour. Aroma is strong: clementines, tangerines, sweet peaches in fruit syrup, bit of sweetness, rich fruit. Flavor is a rush of sweet fruit, fleshy orange, less intense than smell. Low carbonation and low lying bitterness. Noticing that Lawson makes balanced IPAs, not hop bombs. Very happy to have tried this.

This one poured a darker yellow with a white head. Aroma was of tropical fruit, lots of oranges and green hops . Flavor was lightly dank, mainly orangey and herbal hops. Lightly tropical too. Good, not great.

On tap at Prohibition Pig: pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma citrus heavy. Flavor is grapefruit, mango and pepper on the back end. Malt balances the hops well. Full flavor, perfectly carbonated this is an awesome beer.

22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have tropical fruit, citrus, dank and catty hops, a sizable enough malt backbone to stand up to the hops, caramel, toast, with hints of spicy hops as well. Good flavor and easy to drink even with the big hop profile.

After one of the early kegs kicked at Blind Tiger’s VSK night they threw this gem on causing almost a stampede to the bar. Pours orange golden with fluffy white head. Nose of huge tropical fruit. This is bursting with juicy hop flavors, pineapple, mangoes, grapefruit, some pepper and earthy bitterness. Drying finish with medium body, fresh and delicious and amazing
