Lawson’s Finest Super Session IPA #2
12 oz can shared with ebone1988. The pour is a darker orangey gold with a thin film of white head that had has a nice bit of lace and a thicker collar. The aroma is dank as hell. There is a ton of Amarillo in this. The bitterness, the dankness, everything. There is so much Amarillo and I’m not a fan of this particular hop. The flavor is much of the same. The dank and bitter hops are just all Amarillo. The mouth feel is pretty great. It’s light and crisp with a light carbonation and a a lingeringly bitter and dank hop. It’s an interesting brew, but this just plays to my dislike of the Amarillo hop.

Lawson’s Finest Sip of Sunshine IPA
Can given by an awesome beer friend from work. Pour was orange with nice frothy head. Sweet melon, tangerine and grapefruit on the nose. More of that on the palate. Bitterness is mild given the fruity sweetness. No alcohol present. Would be world classed for an IPA, doesn’t pack the character needed to be the best Imperial. But still, worth trying. Tasty. Very tasty.

The taste is smooth, crisp, some acidity, bright apple sourness, pear, white grape, gooseberry and sherbet with a dry finish. Light - medium body and fine carbonation. Nice tart edge to it.

Lawson’s Finest Sip of Sunshine IPA
A 1 pint can canned on 1st April 2016 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a slightly hazy golden orange colour with a big three finger frothy white head that had good retention and left nice lacing. Aroma of lots of fruit with orange, orange rind, grapefruit pith, lemon and pineapple. There’s also some honey and a hint of dank mustiness. Tastes citrusy lemon, lime, orange zest, tangerine and grapefruit bitterness plus tropical mango and peach. Nice light candied toffee and caramel sweetness in the background. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall… Ahh, what a stunning DIPA. I prefer Sip of Sunshine over Heady Topper, but in the end both are really good. Great balance between bitter and sweet and easily ends up as a must buy beer for me.

Lawson’s Finest Super Session IPA #2
Can picked up at a Burlington beer store. Consumed with commonshawn, rosskyle, and samadouche outside at the hotel. Light straw golden. Aroma is hop forward with nice pine and floral qualities. Taste is mostly pine and citrus peel from hops. Maintains a healthy malt balance as a backbone. Fits the description of a session IPA perfectly. Almost a hint floral notes accenting the finish. Perfect for a sunny, early summer day.

Eh, it was OK. It started out tasting like carbonated water with lots of minerals, but towards the middle of the cans I drank, it started tasting a bit better. Nothing special at all. Wouldn’t have been anythign without the Lawson’s name on it.

Tap at The Farmhouse in Burlington, VT. Snifter glass. Darker hue of gold with orange accents. Well laced with white head. Aroma is relatively dank with resiny characteristics. Taste is complex and very interesting. Great balance with a beautiful hoppy presence offset by sugary, sweet malts. Finish is amazing. One of the best beers of ECBT so far. If a sip of sunshine tastes this good, give me more sunshine.

Tap at prohibition pig in VT with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Dark gold with beautiful frothy white head. Resin hop nose. Taste is very complex for the style. Flavor lasts a long time and changes, starts alcohol, hop, then sweet, then more sweet dark sugar. Finish is perfect. Very very good.

Lawson’s Finest Sip of Sunshine IPA
Half-clouded tangerine hue with a fuzzy eggshell head. Sweaty aroma. Laundry, gym socks, garlic, mown grass, underlying tangerine sweetness. Hint of mango. More sweetness in the flavor, grass and orange and mango, soft creamsicle. Second push of grungy bitterness at the finish, chives. Finishes with bitterness below medium. Like a jimmy Hendrix guitar riff, messy but awesome, with raw edges that nonetheless are pleasant. Also doesn’t taste at all like 8%.

Lawson’s Finest Peril
Bottle, about a month old. Some hop bitterness and aroma, but surprisingly I found this one to be dominated by the booze and the yeast. At 11.1%, I tasted every bit of that ABV. I also got a heavy yeast flavor, which reminded me of the bottle of Double Sunshine I had a few weeks ago. Not bad, just not refined at all.

Awesome aroma and taste. You can't really tell that's it's a double IPA because the alcohol isn't overwhelming. You get some of the booze in the finish but otherwise it's all hops! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lawson’s Finest Sip of Sunshine IPA
Merci à Marc pour ses expéditions Vermontoises. Des agrumes plein le nez avec des notes de pamplemousse, d’orange, assorti d’un gazon intense coupé d’accents de résine pin. Présence également de fruits tropicaux et de mangue. Le malt nous donne également des tons de biscuits. Superbe complexité de l’olfactif. Le liquide est clair et ambré. La mousse est onctueuse, épaisse, mais le maintient est moyen. L’entrée de bouche présente un équilibre marqué entre les notes d’agrumes, de poivre et de gazon. Les tons maltés de biscuit soutiennent les agrumes et les fruits tropicaux. La finale est longue et légèrement astringente, mais pas trop. L’alcool est superbement dosé. Quelle superbe IPA. un classique du style.
