Lawson's Finest Liquids Peril Imperial IPA

What the brewers say

“Peril IPA has a menacing hops character and dangerously smooth flavor, achieved by copious dry hopping and cold conditioning. Please enjoy responsibly … at your own peril!”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big dank and alcohol nose...some peach and other stone fruit shine through above the toasted biscuit malt that supports. A ‘trail mix’–like aroma, with a strong hint of dried apricots.”

Flavor: “A punch of intense hops essences and boozy sweetness that welcome your palate to the party. The flavors are deep and bold, ranging from sweet cherries, orange marmalade, and even Grand Marnier liqueur. A dankness pervades the background of the beer, and the sweetness is tempered by the significant booze and hefty bitterness. It’s bitter, but balanced enough to really enjoy. The malt backbone supports, but does not overwhelm. Light acidity accentuates the fruit notes.”

Overall: “A rich, bold beer that has so many layers of complexity that it’s hard to capture all the nuances and intricacies. Enjoy and reflect—one moment it’s fruity and citrusy, and the next bitter and boozy. Wonderful!”
