Lawson's Finest Super Session IPA #8
Canette datée du 23/08/2017, bue après 3 semaines. Robe dorée tirant sur l'orangée, légèrement trouble et surmontée d'un léger col de mousse blanc et rocailleux. Arômes de citron et ananas, effluves herbacées presque poivrées, zeste d'orange, pamplemousse, grains maltés un peu âcres. En bouche, le Mosaic est plus perceptible: goût d'ananas plus présent mais également plus fruité et sucré qu'au nez avec un léger goût de mangue. Arrière-goût citronné avec pointes herbacées qui enlèvent malheureusement les saveurs fruitées du début et qui nous laissent sur une finale plus sèche. Texture huileuse et légère, corps mince. Bien.

Golden pour with a single finger head and lots of lace. Aroma is sweet, citrus, blood orange. Taste is full of blood orange, grapefruit, orange pith, fairly sweet. Finishes with a kiss of dryness. Reminds me a bit of Three Floyds Dreadnaut. Medium body.

Lawson's Finest Super Session IPA #8
Can poured into a snifter showing moderately filtered amber brown with sparse white foam. The nose shows a lot of guava, hints of pine resin, pineapple. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Pineapple forward with a malty mid-palate and a light bitterness on the end. The finish shows more pine resin and corn malts. Pretty good for a session.

Lawson's Finest Super Session IPA #8
Ar: Orange and pine resin; hop nose is intense; grass and lemon candy; a bit of black pepper; lightly toasted malt. Ap: Golden and clear; medium-small off-white head with good retention, leaving a full covering of medium-small bubbles, slightly webby. T: Ripe guava, mango, and cantaloupe; light sweetness; notes of lemon, pine, and candied orange; malt is toasty with a hint of medium-light caramels; bitterness is medium-high and very smooth; finish is lemon and orange. P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation; very smooth, almost creamy; finishes medium-dry. O: This session IPA is killer; the hop profile is intense and complex and pairs perfectly with the smooth body and malt backbone; everything is in balance, and the beer is very satisfying while also being extremely drinkable.

Not very "citrusy" - actually quite bitter. Overall a decent beer but not worth a premium price or waiting in line for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz can. Actually, many, many 16oz cans. Can’t believe I never got around to rating this one. It has been one of my favorites for a couple of years now. Yes, it may be over hyped but, damn, it’s good. Lawson definitely has that whole scarcity thing working. Everytime I get my hands on one I feel like I have secured a treasure and it tastes 20% better because of it.

Yes definitely good. Overrated tho. Feel like Sip of Sunshine and Nimble Giant are trying to do the same thing. Troegs does it better. Agree with supernova down there.

Lawson's Finest Super Session IPA #2
Where: A gift enjoyed at a tasting event, thanks Maxbier and dlovell2 and Steve. How: From a can. Appearance is a light/medium gold, with a white head that dissipates. Aroma is a citrus, pine and crackery malts. Taste follows the nose, a little juicer than the nose gives off. Palate is average carbonation with somewhat of a dry finish. Overall, this is just a fantastic session that drinks easy without losing much of the IPA characteristics. Much appreciation to Dan for sharing, this is a beer i would drink every single day!

Where: A gift enjoyed at a tasting event, thanks Maxbier and dlovell2 and Steve. How: Poured from a can. Appearance is a golden orange color with big head. Aroma is citrusy and tropical hops up front with a good balancing malt, and some floral notes. Taste is right off the nose, starts off with tropical and floral hops that are greeted with a moderate bitterness, nice balance of malty and sweet, finishings tropical and hoppy. Palate is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a very hoppy and on the bitter side, yet balanced super drinkable DIPA. Huge props to Dan for providing this to our tasting event, awesome!

Lawson's Finest Super Session IPA #2
Appearance: slightly cloudy blonde, thin quickly fading foam. Smell: rather weak hoppy aromas, smooth lemon and cereals. Taste: lemon, unripe citrus, nice subtle and smooth piney and earthy hop notes, very adequate bitterness level for malt base. Overall: great Session India Pale Ale, perhaps closer to an American Pale Ale, hops aromatic could be boosted.

Rating #2533 - 2016.05.05 - Sample at BrewExpo at CBC in Philly. Was chatting with the sampler and made a Len steal my sunshine reference. He didn’t get it. I was embarassed, but not for me. Pours a rich golden, small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is tangerine, pine, and lemon peel On the palate, similar tropical flavours, mild resin, mild pine needle. Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced. Call Professor Lupulin because I’m now a motherfucking werewolf.

The Publick House, Boston. Creamy head, rich clearish orange gold. Sweet, full hop. Rich, acidic and old school bitter IPA. Lots of dense citrus hops, with some resin edges. Fairly bright overall. Honey sweetness. Very dry, full finish. Very nice.

On tap at vermont brewers fest. Pours a cloudy amber. Slightly funky on the nose. Strong hop flavor, extremely bitter, funky flavor comes through but the balance is odd. Ok.

Lawson's Finest Bit O' Balsam IPA
Where and how: on tap in Burlington, VT
Aroma sadly a bit muted, fir nodes are present in aroma. Mild citrus behind.
Appearance :
Top: very large foamy top, dense. Defined rings with some lace on glass.
Base: cloudy almost turbid amber-gold
Palate : medium bodied, soft texture. Long finish.
Taste: Strange and unusual. Pungent funky bitterness with soft creamy mid. Cannabis like funk. Dint mind this funky pungent element but this one is one sided.

Where and how: Vermont @ Sun and Ski can 355 ml
Aroma nice, soft floral-citrusy blend, gold malts in support. 7+
Appearance :
Top: large cap, some lace on glass, longer lasting foam.
Base: gold
Palate : medium lighter in body, a bit softer than most, average finish.
Taste: very drinkable, easy going creation. Perfect all-nighter. Satisfying blend of hops and malt. Just enough substance for not to be too heavy yet light enough to be session choice.

Lawson's Finest Sip of Sunshine IPA
Shared 16 oz. can poured to snifters showing a hazed, orangey/gold color, a modest, soft white layer of head foam, with dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was dank & lightly resinous, earthy with a touch of barn scent, and some citrusy grapefruit & lemon. Light to medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste added moderate citrus & rind bitterness, with slight, mellowing malt. Hidden alcohol sealed the deal on my style opinion as a less than DIPA offering.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma is of fresh hops, grass, a little citrus, grapefruit, and some earthiness. Bubbly palate. Flavor is the same. Citrusy hoppy freshness. Leaves a nice hoppy bite in the end.
