UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Alex! Bright, radiant gold with a big, slow settling foamy white head that leaves nice lacing behind. Aroma is huge citrus & tropical hops; pungent pineapple, mango, tangerines, papaya, grapefruit. Huge pungency & awesome hop oils... Dripping wet, gushing fruits. Taste is... Amazing. Pungent, juicy hops. Citrus, mango, pineapple, orange, papaya, sticky hop leaves, dank resins... Just a touch of cracker malt, not sweet at all. Perfect bitterness... Nice pine & fruit finish, dry and long lasting. Fantastic, world class. Double Sunshine is the best DIPA I’ve ever had.

Pours a bright golden with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of dank and resinous hops and tropical fruits. Light alcohol. Taste is lightly sweet but mostly fruity with a firm bitterness. Alcohol shows a little, but hey, it’s a double IPA. Mangoes. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel juicy. Really nice and quite similar to Heady, a bit more tropical juice and a bit less alcohol and it would be amongst my best I’m sure!

Bomber bought at Winooski Beverage Warehouse. This was poured into a Lawson’s tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange almost brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that concaved gracefully to leave some bubbles inside of a thin white cap. The smell starts off with a sweet onion up front and then some light tropical fruits and a delicate sweet and bitter sprucy piney stickiness. The taste was mainly bitter backed up by a light sweet tropical fruit revolving around the pine. Bitter sticky piney-ness leading into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a good sipping quality and a danky sweet stickiness clinging to my tongue. Some slight hop oils lay down to want to allow a certain slick feel, but still indicates a well balanced oily to slick and clinginess on my tongue. Overall, what a wonderful DIPA that I know I would have again.

Draft. An unclear golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has of hops, malt, exotic fruit, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, exotic fruits, alcohol, malt and straw, leading to a bitter finish

Bottle thanks to Rob. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy off white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong floral, tropical fruit, and dank. Thick mouth, grapefruit, pine, juicy, nice resin finish, very impressive.

simply one of the best balanced double IPA is on the market. appearances golden exactly like the color of sunshine. aroma is full of tropical fruit notes and hops suggest what should be a very bitter beer turns out to be exceptionally well balanced. there’s something about the water used by Hill farmstead Lawsons and the alchemist that makes all three of these breweries the finest in the United States. I make a trip up to Waterbury every winter and these three are by far and away the best brewers.

Blonde doré. Voilé. Entré légèrement sucré. Malté. Belle amertume. Très fruité. Agrume. Orange. Résineuse. Un peu végétale et âcre. Finale sèche et terreuse. Très bien.

Des malts à demi-sucrés qui supportent des exubérances fruitées et herbacées. Vraiment l’équilibre comme signature pour Lawson’s.

Abounding tropical fruit, citrus and pine, with just enough of a semi-sweet malty backbone to balance. Went down incredibly easy and had no real faults to speak of."

On m’avait dit que c’était bon. On ne m’a pas menti. Les murmures autour de la table voulaient comparer la fiole avec une canette de Heady Topper. Plusieurs disaient que la Lawson’s Finest était meilleure. De mon côté, je n’avais pas envie de comparer. Je voulais juste la boire. La déguster. Et c’est exactement ce que j’ai fait. On ne m’avait pas menti... mais moi j’ai menti lorsqu’on m’a demandé si j’en avais déjà eu alors qu’il ne restait qu’une portion dans la bouteille. J’ai eu la dernière portion et j’ai quitté pour la salle de bain sans remords.
