750ml HF swing-top growler poured into HF stemmed glass. Review copied from notes since my computer wasn't working when I drank this. First sampled at the brewery and then entire growler consumed the next day.

A- Growler opens with a nice "pop" to pour out a hazy mostly opaque slightly brownish orange grapefruit color with 1-2 fingers (1 finger on first pour, 2 fingers on second pour) of foamy head with very nice retention and leaving frothy lacing. Nice consistent carbonation.

S- Grapefruit, fruity citrus lemons (not acidic smelling), light greeny hops, and a nice balance of malts hiding in the background and adding a balanced sweetness. Not as intense of a citrus aroma as the previous two Societys, but very pleasant and well balanced.

T- Grapefruit, lightly bitter citrus lemon, finishes with grapefruit juice and balanced malts that complement the citrus. Lingering balanced presence of citrus and malts. Again not as citrus forward as previous Societys, but a very nice balance.

M- Medium bodied, nice carbonation, very easy drinking, slight bitter feel but refreshing.

O- This is another great Society & Solitude that definitely lives up to the other beers in the series. I loved the mosaic hops in this however I think I like SS4 and SS5 just a tiny bit better with them being a little bit more citrus forward without the balance between the malts as much. That's just personal preference though. I definitely recommend checking this beer out, it definitely will not disappoint even if you hold it to high expectations. (1,540 characters)

SS 6
A- hazy straw color with fluffy white head. White lacing all over the glass.
S- mango, banana, passion fruit, melon
T- follows the nose with light tropical fruits like mangos, banana, honeydew melon, melon pear, and pineapple.
M- light body with moderate carbonation. Sticky hops. Oils coat the palate pleasantly.
O- another killer beer from HF. I love the mosaic hops. The more fruity and tropical the IPA the better. Easy to drink with tons of flavor and no harsh bitterness. (483 characters)
