Enjoyed at the Three Penny Taproom. Pours fairly dark with a medium off-white head. Aroma is of hops and candy or brown sugar. Slightly sweet with excellent hop flavor/aroma without the intense bitterness.

In short: A superior amber ale.
How: Tap at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury VT. (Lawson’s takeover day)
The look: Almost clear bronze body topped by very small beige head.
In long: Nose is sweet barley candy, maple syrup, taffy, hops juice. In mouth the beer is surprisingly hoppy. Taste starts with barley candy lollipop then a good amount of juicy leafy hops take over. Leafy hops essence in the finish. Not very bitter per say but a lot of hops essence nonetheless. A lot going on here, a decent complexity and a very high drinkability. This is a superior amber ale that manages to be pretty good without being an APA/IPA in disguised. Another good beer I had at the Lawsons takeover event, and I hate when a waiter asks me if I want another beer and I need to answer, thus wasting valuable beer drinking time.

Hoppy profile means this should've been opened in Sept/Oct. Old hops galore, not much else going on. I've never been that impressed with Lawsons IPAs, this doesn't change anything.

On tap at the Black Back when I stopped here with Max on the way to Hill Farmstead’s Harvest Festival. Pours a deep hazy brown, chocolatey, under a medium sized white to beige head. Big hops, lots of chocolate and roast, malt. Roast and cocoa, smoky, but very delicate. Chocolate, lots of malt. Long pithy bitterness, toast. Bitter cocoa, long malt and pithy grapefruit. Nice.

22 oz. bottle, shared by Adam Jackson! Snifter showed a nice crimson color, thin white head lightly carbonated. Nose is all pine. Taste is caramel malt with lots of Earthy pine resin. The amount of pine is a bit ridiculous. The texture is oily and slick. I had to sip this, and 10 oz was enough for me.

radarsock (1184) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 21, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2012 Pours copper with a slushy off-white head not even a fingernail in length. Smells and tastes of caramel, onion hops, pilsener malt and vegetation. Earthy and thin.

Picked this up at the hunger mountain coop. Deep amber ale. Nice 1 finger head. Smells like pine resin. Hints of pine cone. Some sap. Very earthy. Nice bitter balance in taste. Very weak mouthfeel. Not too balanced. High bitterness. Very earthy. Drinkable but it's not as great as I had hoped.
