Lawson’s Finest Liquids Triple Sunshine IPA
What the brewers say
Explodes with juicy notes of pineapple, grapefruit, and lychee. It exudes potent floral and herbal aromas from a deluge of dry-hopping.
What our panel thought
Fruit-forward with lemon, white grape, orange, and a bit of pineapple. A bit of bread and a hint of toast. A bit of grass and grapefruit as it warms. Quite a bit of white wine super-late in the retronasal. Alcohol is evi-dent but kind of fruity and not harsh.
What our editors thought
[Like a Rick Rubin–produced song that’s over-the-top intense but still keeps every note in the perfect place, it’s] a testament to the art of hops blending where individual characters serve the whole. Bold, strong, fruit-forward, bitterness-checked, and expertly balanced, this is a flavor-forward huge IPA that will convince you to rethink any assumptions you’ve made about the style. Let it warm for maximum effect.
