In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Lawson's Finest Liquids Sip of Sunshine

Aroma: “Fruity, orangey, and dank with a skunky hops aroma (in a good way). Hops are showcased—big resin, slight grassiness, green onion, a bit of pine, and just a hint of biscuit malt.”

Flavor: “Big earthy bitterness, lightly chalky, resinous but not sharp. Surprisingly low bitterness for the obviously large amount of hops in the beer. Lovely caramel malt sweetness helps round out the finish and offset a tiny bit of astringency. Moderate creamy aftertaste. Lovely! Big juicy oranges and passion fruit. Residual sweetness is welcome and lends balance to the pleasantly bitter finish.”

Overall: “Big dank, earthy hops bomb with a touch of malt sweetness—this beer smells like it was grown, not brewed. The malt complexity helps add an extra dimension to this fun and fruity example of IPA 2.0, be it session, single, double, or otherwise. A wonderfully drinkable beer.”
