Steph’s New Brew Review: Sip of Sunshine

Lawson’s Finest Liquids Sip of Sunshine, an 8% ABV India Pale Ale

Appearance Bright golden color with a huge, dense white head.
Aroma Smells like walking into the hop cooler. One of the best things I’ve ever put up to my nose.
Taste Layers upon layers of hop complexity. Tropical, earthy, piney perfection.
Mouthfeel Bright carbonation, creamy body, lingering bitterness.
Overall More, please.
