Lawson’s Finest Liquids Sip of Sunshine – American IPA at 8% ABV

Lawson’s Finest Liquids Sip of Sunshine American IPA at 8% ABV (Trade – thanks Norm!, 473 ml, packaged on 9-Nov-2018, acquired 21-Dec-2018, reviewed 23-Dec-2018)

Appearance: hazy pale amber with one fat finger of rocky white head diminishing to a thin cap, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: bright citrus, dank pine, tropical fruit, floral. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (9/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (5/5)

I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while, so getting it by special delivery (thanks Norm!) was a bit of an early Xmas gift for me! It did not disappoint: despite being a little bit older – it’s been around for what, four years now? – it’s still very current, with big bright citrus aroma upon opening, but retaining that old-school lingering bitterness. Pretty great stuff. (18/20)
