On tap at the Biere de Norma release. Beautiful orange-gold with thick white head. Aroma is wet grass, citrus (peach), honey and onion. The most Dank of the Society and Solitude series. Lots of grassy and resin flavors and citrus peel. Full bodied and sharp. Classic Hill Farmstead IPA.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

750ml growler poured into a tulip.

A- Golden orange pour with a nice haze. Two fingers of white foam. Moderate lacing on the glass after each sip.

S- Strong fruit and pine scents. Really picking up a grapefruit scent with other citrus fruits present. Moderate hops smell but not overwhelming.

T- Nice citrus taste. Grapefruit notes jump out right away, and linger in the aftertaste as well. Other tropical/citrus fruits coming through after the initial grapefruit upfront. A perfect amount of bitterness detected, definitely well balance and not too hoppy.

M- Dry, light to medium bodied mouthfeel. Nice citrusy/bitter aftertaste.

O- This is an excellent DIPA. Very smooth and easy drinking. Does not drink like 8% at all. Love the great balance of citrus, earthiness, and hops. Would love to be able to have this all the time. Drinks excellent in the FL summer heat.

Serving type: growler

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a slightly hazy medium orange gold color with a very thick, creamy white lacing ring and very sticky on the sides of the glass. As the beer warms it gets crystal clear.

S - Dank citrus, pithy grapefruit, yeast, and pine.

T - Oranges, spicy citrus, light lemon, zesty, with a resiny pine citrus finish. Light alcohol and a lingering piney citrus biter finish.

M - Full medium body, light and very gentle carbonation.

O - This is an amazing big IPA that's well worth the pursuit.
