Super Session #2 is Lawson’s second beer to be contract brewed in Connecticut at Two Roads and distributed in cans. Sip of Sunshine was the first and is still much more popular than Super Session #2. I was in Vermont recently and found many places selling 6 and 12 packs of Super Session with no limits while Sip of Sunshine was harder to find and typically limited to one or two 4-packs.
Session beers are great but at 4.8% ABV this is on the high side of the session category. SS#2 pours a clear yellow with big white head. Aroma is light as expected with this style but has plenty of citrus and pine. Flavor is similar to the nose, light citrus, floral and a bit of lemon. Finish is crisp, clean with very little bitterness.
I liked this beer but Maine Island Trail from Rising Tide and Baby Genius from Bissell Brothers are still my go to session beers.

Brewers Description: Super Session #2 is designed to be a light and refreshing beer with low alcohol, yet the full hop character of a Session IPA. Go ahead, you can have more than one… Cheers!
