Decided to crack open a 2 liter growler of society of solitude 5 that I picked from hill farmstead at the 2012 harvest fest. I really enjoyed trying this brew at the festival so my mouth is watering to tap into this growler

A- society and solitude pours a hazy tangerine orange body with a soapy white head of foam that laces the edges with marshmallow webbing. Very exuberant and glowing in my hill farmstead stemware.

S- Ridiculous grapefruit blast that embodies the description of tropical oasis. Sweet and citric catapult of literal grapefruit bombs blasting the scent profile. S&S5 pushes your nostrils off a tropical island of a citric oasis

T- A sweet and sour compilation of the aforementioned tropical flavor. A bitter mouth cringing grapefruit flavor attaches itself to the palate while a sugary spectacle of flavor lingers on. There is a caramel flavor that is at the exit with flavor that suggests some piney resinous flavor contributing and therefore balancing the hoppy grapefruit too

M- carbonated and prickly deliciousness that flows all over the palate

O- The best way to summarize society and solitude 5 is to summarize it as a tropical grapefruit neutron bomb. Very enlightening and tropical brew that explodes and graffitees your palate with bitter sweet flavor. Again, here is Shaun Hill demonstrating that DIPA's can embody many different properties. Way to go Hill Farmstead!
