Lawson’s Finest Liquids Introduces Super Session #5 with Cashmere Hops
(Waitsfield, VT) – There is officially a new hop in town. Lawson’s Finest Liquids has turned to Cashmere hops for the latest release in its longtime Super Session single-hop IPA series, introducing Super Session #5 to its full distribution area this week. The Cashmere-hopped IPA, which is completely new to the market, will be available through the end of May in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
Brewed with the same malt base and specialty malts as the other beers in this IPA series, Super Session #5 features a generous amount of Cashmere hops that get added late in the kettle and in dry hopping. The Cashmere hops give Super Session #5 a soft, balanced hop character, and at 4.8% ABV, the beer is light, refreshing, and approachable.
“We’ve been testing a wide variety of hops for our Super Session series, and we’re just thrilled with how Super Session #5 came out,” said Sean Lawson, CEO and founder of Lawson’s Finest Liquids. “Cashmere provides plenty of hop character and aroma, but in a way that is softer and not as bitter or aggressive as some other hop varieties. The result is a really quaffable session IPA that combines delicate notes of peach, melon, and coconut with the crisp, refreshing mouthfeel of a lighter ale. We can’t wait for everyone to experience Super Session #5 for the first time this spring.”
Beginning this week, Super Session #5 IPA will be available in both 4-packs (16 oz. cans) and 12-packs (12 oz. cans), and Lawson’s Finest fans across the Northeast can find their nearest retailer here. The beer will be available through the end of May, at which point Lawson’s Finest Liquids will transition to the wildly popular, Mosaic-hopped Super Session #8.
The introduction of the brand-new Super Session #5 comes on the heels of Lawson’s Finest’s announcement of Little Sip as its newest year-round beer. Little Sip, the juicy, fruit-forward cousin of the brewery’s flagship Sip of Sunshine IPA, is now available all year long across Lawson’s Finest’s nine-state distribution area. The announcement means that craft beer drinkers in the Northeast now have year-round access to Sip of Sunshine, Little Sip, and a rotating selection of Super Session IPAs. Lawson’s Finest will also be distributing six specialty releases – Knockout Blonde, Scrag Mountain Pils, Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime, Hopcelot IPA, Kiwi Double IPA, and Triple Sunshine – to its regional retailers on a rolling basis in short, seasonal stints this year.
