Des malts à demi-sucrés qui supportent des exubérances fruitées et herbacées. Vraiment l’équilibre comme signature pour Lawson’s. Zoret (478) - Badalona, SPAIN - MAR 8, 2016
De tirador al BBF 2016. Espectacular doble IPA, fruitada, fresca, equilibrada i amb una alta bebilitat tot i les seus 8 graus. Boníssima!!! Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Tap at BT. Pours a slight hazed golden yellow with a tinge of orange color- nice fluffy tacky white head- some good lace. Aroma is big powerful fresh citrus hops, light pine and some dankness, mostly orange and some grapefruit- some tropical sweet fruitiness from the hops as well. Flavor is not sweet at all, just some big juicy hops, orange, mango, then pine zestiness, with a good hoppy bitter finish. Way too easy to drink. I think this would have held up well next to all the DIPAs at the Bistro fest last week. Awesome stuff. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Huge thanks to koopa for sharing this one.
Pours a cloudy, golden sunshine color with orange and lemon yellow hues and a one finger white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Sweet citrus hop aroma with dank, resinous hop oils and tons of citrus and tropical. fruit. Slightly piny with lots of pineapple, grapefruit and lemon peel.
Medium bodied with a blast a dry, earhy hops which provide a perfect dry bitterness that lingers over the sweet fruit notes into a bone dry finish. Lots of grapefruit and sweet pineapple along with zesty lemon peel. Pale malt backbone with biscuit and cracker providing a nice counter without taking away from the hop bitterness. Simply put, this beer tastes amazing. GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2012
22oz bomber from caguiar.
Pours a hazy golden orange with a small wispy white head that recedes to a swirl of foam and thick collar.
Aroma is massively hoppy with mostly juicy citrus hops - pithy white grapefruit and orange zest. Some lemongrass and pien resin underneath the citrus. There is a bit of bready malt sweetness but definitely not a lot of balance in the nose.
The taste has a mix of oranges and pineapple citrus with a hefty floral dankness with some herbal and grassy notes. The finish is bitter and resinous.
Mouthfeel is medium to full bodiied and well carbonated. I do get a hint of alcohol burn in the finish which surprised me a little but didn’t take away from the beer.
Another outstanding hoppy beer from Lawson’s. I was a big fan of the Triple Play I just tasted and this is even better I think.

Draft pour at Blind Tiger during VT event last night - thanks for saving some for me, James. Hazy dark gold pour (into tulip); aromatic with bright citrus and pine notes on the nose. Tastes really delicious - big grapefruit, pine, zest. Not really bitter at all. Extremely scrumptious and savory. Light mouthfeel and bright sorts of flavors. Excellent.

22 oz bottle, rating #100! Surprise gift from my friend in VT. Lightly hazed orange brown with white frosting. Nose is caramel, pineapple, mango, spicy pine and black pepper. Lovely balance with floral undertones. The smell alone might be worth the cost. Crisp at first softening with resin. Slick then dry like a martini. First sip reminds me of canned fruit salad, but in a good way. Cardamon and cherry sweetness draw you in; pineapple, mango, peach, grapefruit peel and lingering key lime. Just below my top 2 DIPA’s but still showing the same total sensory immersion that distinguish my favorites. ThirstyBird (2925) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2013

22oz bottle from Brown Jug, leftover from the Culmination Fest. Pours cloudy yellow orange with a foamy off white head and a few chunks. Aroma is full of tropical fruits like pineapple, some cat pee/pine, malt and a light sweet bubble gum. Flavor is firmly bitter hops with a clean malt and yeast profile, very light alcohol. Medium body with a dry bitter finish and a soft mouth feel. This one is packed with tropical hop aroma and flavor while being very well balanced. I love this beer. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bomber from trade with 46er3498. Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a nice 1 finger foamy head that fades normally, leaves some nice webbing. Very nice tropical fruit aroma with some light mustiness, grapefruit, lemon, and pine. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately bitter throughout. Tropical fruit and grapefruit dominate with some pine and spicy hops showing up in the finish. Medium body and oily mouthfeel. Great stuff here. Seems to actually get even better when it warms a bit. Lives up to the hype.
