Recipe Notes:

This recipe came from Sean Lawson himself, owner of Lawson's Finest Liquid, a small-batch brewery based in Warren, Vermont.\n\nThis is a fantastic Double IPA, packed with juicy tropical fruit flavors and bright herbal aromas.\n\nDirections:\nSingle infusion mash: Achieve a target mash of 152°F (67°C). Hold for 45 minutes, then raise to mash-out temperature and begin lauter phase.\n\nCollect enough wort to boil 6.5 gallons (24.6 liters) and boil for 60 minutes, following the hops and additions schedule. After the boil is complete, begin a whirlpool in the kettle and let the knockout hops rest in the hot wort for at least 30 minutes before chilling.\n\nChill the wort rapidly to 68°F (20°C). Ferment at 68°F (20°C) for one week. Cool to 55°F (13°C) to settle the yeast. Dump the yeast from the bottom of the fermentor or rack to a clean, sanitized vessel. Add the dry hops and let the beer sit for an additional four to seven days at 55–57°F (13°C).

I recently had this (tallboy) when visiting Vermont, and I must say it's one of the best beers I've ever had. I actually preferred it to the highly touted Heady Topper. I definitely look forward to trying this one out.
