on Tap in a Chimay goblet
A- A cloudy apricot, light orange with a thin head and nice lacing on the glass
S- Orange, grapefruit and citrus hops. A little sweetness almost like fresh strawberries. None of that barnyard hay/funk you get from other HF beers
T- A nice complex hop kick in the teeth. like a fresh sweet orange and nice balance of bitter and sweetness. Again none of that yeasty/grassy you get from the others.
M- Medium to mild. big flavor but not much carbonation
O- Another magnificent beer from HF. This beer reminds me of Lawson's 'Double Sunshine' big time.
Serving type: on-tap

Hazy with a nice light orange color.
Smells amazing when the growler is popped. A very sweet fruit smell.
The taste is a lot of tangerine and mango with sweetness up front and then a long lingering bitterness on the end with a pine aftertaste. Some sticky-ness at the end.
It was pretty heavily carbonated out of the growler at first (assuming from transport), but generally a lighter carbonation, decent head, just clinging to the glass.
Wish this was more readily available.

I've heard a lot about Hill Farmstead and the beers that I've had from Hill Farmstead prior to this have been great to oh my god fantastic. I was in Vermont for the weekend and I have Everett, Edward, and Walden. While I though all were good, only Everett was amazing to me. Now, I barely got three growlers of HFS at the brewery because I overlooked the fact that they were cash only. Anyway, I got three smaller growlers and I'll review Susan and Abner when I have then.
I'm not going to do a full ASTMO review, but this beer was incredible. While a lot of IPAs get that citrus grapefruit-y flavor, #4 gets more of oranges. It's sweeter and tangier. It has some but not most of the sour quality of the more grape fruitier IPAs. It's got a little more of that creamy IPA goodness you'd get from an IPA that has more of that banana/guava goodness. Overall, Society and Solitude #4 will leave you wanting more because it is so damn good.
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip, but this makes me feel grateful to be home and enjoy such a great beer..
