I really enjoyed this. Very earthy grassy hops. The smell reminds me of smelling the packaging of hops while homebrewing. Taste is grass, grapefruit, and some pine. Raw hop type flavor as well and I love it.

Alright! Another delicious Lawson’s beer. Picked this up at the Montpellier market (12-12). Enjoyed in a pint glass which made the nose difficult but oh well. Amber brown. sort of hazy. Nice head that fades slowly. Nose is bitter, sweet and fruity. It’s a very earthy hop aroma. Taste is pine cones and grapefruit juice. It’s a bit too earthy sort of like most wet hop ales and that’s the only factor that falls short. Everything else is fantastic! Thanks Sean.

Bottle/22oz - Thanks to Sean for making this beer available to my wife for my Christmas last year! Pours a pale yellow in color with a medium bright white head that produced some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is big of wet, green, grassy hops along with some hop soapiness and some citrus tartness. Flavor is also full of the grassy/green hop flavor... so much so, that the beer also tastes a bit soapy, but that does not detract, too much, from the great hoppy flavor of the beer. Only mildly bitter, the grassy hop flavor lingers well into the finish. One of the most authentic tasting wet-hopped beers I have ever had.
