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.

Marheb (3051) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Des malts à demi-sucrés qui supportent des exubérances fruitées et herbacées. Vraiment l’équilibre comme signature pour Lawson’s.

slowrunner77 (6923) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
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.

This is a perfect beer for me. Crisp and clean with huge hoppy aroma but not too bitter. Very balanced and drinkable

Pours dark hazy copper with a finger of head that laces glass. Aroma is pine, citrus, resin and mango. Taste is super piney and resinous with tons of mango, citrus and grapefruit notes. Then has a earthly floral hops on the bitter finish. Medium body, medium carbonation.
