Bomber at a bottle share. Pours a hazy darker gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical, and grass. Taste is grapefruit, pineapple, other tropical fruits, grass, and some malt. Very nice IPA.

Not sure how I haven’t rated this. Bottles and on draft. Golden pour with white head. Super citrus and light herbal and fresh grassy hop aromas. Flavor follows, delicious and solid double ipa.

I’ve had Pliny and Heady in the recent past and this one is not even in the same class as those. Big hop aroma. Too dry of a finish and harsh on the tongue.

J’avais beaucoup d’attentes en buvant cette fameuse Double Sunshine qui est constamment comparée à la Heady Topper. Elles sont toutes deux brassées au Vermont, mais les similitudes s’arrêtent pas mal là. C’est un beau nectar doré et trouble surmonté d’une montagne de mousse dessinant une belle dentelle qui remplit le verre. Un nez majoritairement constitué de cultivars d’houblons ouest-américains est saisissant et fait baver. En bouche, un bel équilibre entre les qualités aromatiques et amérisantes est bien maîtrisé, ça se boit incroyablement bien, mais ce n’est rien à côté de la Heady ...

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.

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.
