Lawson’s Finest Super Session IPA #2
Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma is dank and grassy, really fresh. Taste starts really hoppy and slightly malty but not sweet. Not bitter either, really well balanced. Grassy hops, bright and green flavors. Light body but smooth, medium carbonation. Overall it’s a great session IPA.

Lawson’s Finest Sip of Sunshine IPA
Pours a hazy orange color with medium white head. Aroma is intense, lots of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, papaya, blood orange, pine and flowers, with a good malty/bready backbone. Taste follows the nose, mango, passion fruit, papaya, orange zest, grapefruit, pine, flowers and herbs. Aftertaste is fairly bitter. Extremely drinkable. Really good DIPA.

Lawson’s Finest The Space In Between
22 ounces bottle from Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: nice green nose. Lots of hops unleashing mostly citrus (oranges?) and pineapples, onions, pines and light herbs. App: hazy apricot / straw, small white head leaving little lacing. Taste and palate: light body, fruity but watery a bit, grainy, yeasty, clean light to moderate bitter finish. Overall: kind of a mix between a saison and a NE ipa but much more on the latter. Finish is quite clean like the new NE IPA style, maybe a bit too clean for me though but that makes it easier to drink. I can clearly see myself drinking this beer by the pool. Really wonder what’s the ABV on this one. Doesn’t seem to strong. So it would fit even better with summer. Another great beer from Lawson’s.

Lawson’s Finest Maple Nipple
Bottle share courtesy of Steve H. Based on the name, was expecting big, in your face maple. Not so. Much more subdued than that. Faint maple in the aroma, again maple notes accent the malty body. It’s in there, but you have to look for it.

Lawson’s Finest Sip of Sunshine IPA
Can from source. Smells like VT. Frozen earth, slightly sweet malts, pine hops and toasted to perfection. Medium-light bitterness. Some citrus tart but mainly hop dominant and tree sap sugars take over. Smooth.

Lawson’s Finest Fayston Maple Imperial Stout - Apple Brandy Barrel Aged
Bottle. Craft Beer Cellar, Waterbury, VT. Not far off black. Ring of dense, tan head. Leggy and slow moving. Nose has Somerset Pomona liqueur. Loads of maple syrup. Treacle and soft liquorice. Notes of apple pomace. Notes of vanilla. Taste is rich, baked apple sweetness. Turns light, charred wood bitter. Sticky smooth mouthfeel. Doesn’t feel 11% by a long way. Finishes woody, sweet, baked apple, and treacle like. Really quite lovely.

Lawson’s Finest Sip of Sunshine IPA
Une bière blonde, presque ambrée, trouble, avec une fine ligne de mousse. Au nez, c’est tout en exotisme, avec ce que je présume un gros dry hop. Des fruits de la passion, de la mangue, et du citron sont remarqué comme arômes. En bouche, la bière m’étonne par son amertume. L’amertume est définitivement plus présente qu’a mon souvenir. Une petite bouffée de saveurs d’agrumes vient en second plan avec des citrons et des tangerines sont à noter. La bière est bonne, mais l’amertume gagnerait à être un peu moins persistente.

Lawson’s Finest Super Session IPA #2
Une bière blonde et ambrée, claire, avec une bonne carbonatation et peu d’effervescence. Au nez, le houblon est bien présent, l’amarillo donnant au liquide une intensité olfactive assez résineuse à cette session. En bouche, l’amertume est définitivement ce qu’on remarque le plus avec un côté forestier très important. Le corps est bien fait, avec une rondeur pertinente pour une session. Les saveurs sont peut-être un peu décevantes, l’amertume emportant son lot de saveurs aux oubliettes. Au final c’est bien mais pas inoubliable.

This is my favorite beer! It totally has an all day drinkability. It has a crisp and clean taste and nothing overpowering.

Lawson’s Finest Super Session IPA #2
From the 12 fl. oz. can stamped 09/23/16. So it is two months old. Unfiltered murky golden-yellow pour with a big white head that lingers. Sediments. Robust aroma of herbs, spices, anise, orange, and a dank quality. Toasted pale malts under it all. Medium or better body, which was a little unexpected for a Session IPA. The taste has lost a little hop luster in two months but still enough spice, herbal, and toasted characters to keep me happy.

Lawson’s Finest Fayston Maple Imperial Stout - Apple Brandy Barrel Aged
Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a pure jet black pour with barely a head. It was tan and dissipated immediately. Lacing is barely there and somewhat in little crisp puddles around the glass. The aroma starts with the apple brandy, pure and sweet thick. Woodiness with the maple syrup rides in nicely. Roasty coffee bean balances. The flavor leans to the apple boozy to woody and maple. Dry sweet roasty coffee to chocolate taste. Big apple brandy sweet to maple aftertaste running on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice sipping quality about it. Carbonation seems barely there, thus creating quite a bit of stickiness. Overall, superb aroma and flavor, but if that carbonation could be amped up just a bit, it would probably help pull down some of that almost cloying sort of feel to it.

Lawson’s Finest Maple Nipple
On tap at the Mule Bar. They poured this into a slim chalice. The appearance was a dark copper almost brown color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated immediately. Messy lace. The aroma had a big sweet maple up front. Nice ample nuttiness. Smooth caramel malts. The flavor leads maple to nutty sweet with a semi-sticky malty to maple syrupy aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with an exceptionally smooth semi-sticky feel. Low carbonation. Overall, practically one of the smoothest American Strong ales that I ever had. Yes, I know that’s due to the maple, but hey, gotta give great credit to this one.

Taste has a savoury edge, running through a light, peach stone bitterness. Medium body. Slightly slick and oily. Fruity bitter finish. Doesn’t come over particularly bright, really.

Bottle shared with Luc, Pat and Chantal. Aroma: intense tobacco, smokey maple, spices. App: black with medium frothy moka head leaving great lacing. Look similar to an espresso. Taste and palate: medium body, medium sweetness, light bitter finish. Overall: good. Maybe a bit too sweet for my tastes. Still easy to drink.

1 pt can. Canned 09/16/16. Huge thanks to Timo A. for this treat!
Clear golden color with a small fluffy white head. Super fresh citrusy and fruity hoppy aroma with mild bitterness, mild yoghurt sourness and mild sweetness. Holy moly it?s fresh and loveable aroma. The flavor is a bit darker with loads of grapefruit, blood orange, pomelo and all sorts of citrus fruits... moderate bitterness, dryness, malt and some sourness. Super drinkable. Amazingly drinkable. So good. I?m in heaven.
