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 4.8% ABV IPA 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 Cashmere hops added late in the kettle and in dry hopping. The Cashmere hops give Super Session #5 a soft, balanced hop character, the brewery reports.
“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,” says 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).

The beer will be available through the end of May, at which point Lawson’s Finest Liquids will transition to the 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 — the juicy, fruit-forward cousin of the brewery’s flagship Sip of Sunshine IPA — as its newest year-round beer.
