4.28/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Growler poured into a Hill Farmstead wine glass.
Pour: Hazy orange with a finger and a half of white. foamy head. Lots of sticky lacing through out the glass.
Smell: A big burst of pine and floral hops. Some citrus fruits in there as well. This beer has the most malt driven nose of the Society series beers I've had yet. Finishes lightly resinous.
Taste: Follows the nose with some resinous pine, grass, and orange pulp. The middle is rather malty, at least for a Hill Farmstead beer - some caramel, raw dough, and oats. The finish is bitter with pine and citrus.
Mouthfeel: Pretty bitter, at least more so than I expected. Medium to full bodied. Finishes bitter, with a lingering doughy sweetness and some pine resin.
Overall: Easily my least favorite of the Society series, but still a superb DIPA.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
