The can artwork makes us wonder whether or not Hopzilla is a fresh DIPA or a high level Pokemon. If it were a Pokemon, what would its powers be? It's ultimate power would probably be the ability to put up a 2pm out-of-office message.

Hopzilla was probably battle tested at the VT Brewer's Festival back in the day.

Lawson's Finest Liquids Beer Description (on can)

Our monster of an IPA will make you pucker up! Loaded with high-alpha U.S. grown hops, this brawny dry hopped ale will terrorize your taste buds, yet has enough malt backbone to balance a fierce bitterness.

Lawson's Finest Liquids is a family owned, award winning brewery located in the picturesque Mad River Valley. Visit our brewery, retail store, and hand hewn timber frame taproom in Waitsfield, Vermont.

Final thoughts on Hopzilla

Some pine, some bitterness, some tropics, at least it lets light through. Haven't come up against a beer from Waitsfield's finest beverages that we didn't want again. All told, Triple Sunshine is preferably to this DIPA.
