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

This beer is simply gorgeous. Solid, one finger, pure as snow white head. Thick, cloudy, opaque liquid. Dark, pulpy orange interior, lightening to almost lemon yellow on the edges. Good head retention and beautiful lacing.

Citrus hops jump at you from the pour. A closer inspection reveals light lemon citrus, mango and tropical fruit, delicate biscuit and caramel malt, and a hint of resinous hops. Mosaic lives up to its name: a lot of different hoppy aromas coming through, with the emphasis on fruit, but nothing overpowering. Delicate and complex.

Taste is initially drier than the nose, but the flavor profile is similar. Hops are present in juicy abundance: an initial lemon flavor, followed by a ton of tropical fruit, and finished off by a slightly dank and fully resinous - yet still very juicy - hop bite.

"Bitter" doesn't leap to mind, despite the hop profile. The water and the yeast carry as much of the flavor profile as the malts, all blending together to support the hops. I get some leather and tobacco, and light biscuit.

Creamy yet light mouthfeel, with an incredibly full flavor. Just enough sting to come across as lively. Not at all syrupy. Great coating of the mouth for a long, smooth aftertaste, and a hint of heat on the back-end. I can't imagine a much better mouthfeel, except perhaps Heady. This is different, albeit similar, but still extraordinary.

This is easily the best new beer I have had in a long while. Like all HF beers I've had, the balance, water quality, craftsmanship, and mouthfeel give this brew so much more character than just the hop load and malt bill. It's truly greater than the sum of its parts. (1,653 characters)

Growler generously shared at the Peg's tasting on 3/8/13.

A- Pours a hazy golden orangish color, topped with a finger of white head.

S- Very hoppy, tropical fruit aroma, mango and papaya, grapefruit and pine, the hops also have a nice resinous and earthy, very mildly garlicy aroma.

T- Similar to the aroma, very nice hop flavor overall, lots of citrus and tropical fruit with a nice amount of earthiness and dank hop flavors. Malty sweetness appears that wasn't in the nose.

M- Medium-bodied, nice carbonation, smooth and creamy feel.

O- The mosaic hops on this are awesome, a really nice DIPA overall. (609 characters)

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

Growler filled 3-5, consumed on 3-6. Nice bubbly one finger head sits ontop a murky orange glow. It's a great color, with wonderful lacing on the glass, as well. The aroma is so juicy and tropical. Pineapple is the major one I'm getting, with citrus and maybe some passion fruit. It's so great. The smell is a little sweet, can't detect any bitterness yet. It Tastes just like I would expect. Sweetness upfront with some pineapple juice qualities. There are other flavors in there that don't let the pineapple sweetness overwhelm. Almost no bitterness. S&S 5 was great when I had it last time, couldn't imagine this would be better. So bummed I only have one growler. The mouthfeel is creamy and the sweetness lingers for a while, it's very smooth. The alcohol is barely there. The only reason It doesn't get a 5 for mouthfeel is because it's not heady topper quality mouthfeel, which is a 5. HT is so resinous. If you like super juicy DIPA's I can't recommend this enough. (973 characters)

Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Hazy yellow gold with a soapy bright-white head. Clumps of lacing stick to the glass. Ok head retention leaves a small swirl of a cap with a small collar.

Smell: Stone fruit. Peach. Malts are slightly sweet with some biscuit and a touch of dough. Slight crakcery elements as well. Some mild sweetness. Light and fruity. Dank. Warming adds even more weed to the whole mix. Peach and a touch of pineapple, but mostly weed. Vague sort of spiciness. Lemon drops.

Taste: Stone fruit and weed. Dank. Peach pit, flesh, and skin. Touches of pineapple. Some solid herbal and spicy hop elements as well. A bit woody. Pale malt base with some slight sweetness and a touch of bread dough. Slight lingering pine bitterness. Ripe mango and some passionfruit as well. Nicely balanced. Warming ups the stone fruit element a touch. Weed sits on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate to light carbonation. Slightly creamy. A touch if lingering dryness on the back of the sip.

Overall: Better with friends.

It's yet another Hill Farmstead pale ale. That means it's good. The straight use of Mosaic leaves the depth a little underwhelming. (1,175 characters)

Split with Goblinmunkey7, growler filled about 7 hours ago

Consumed 1/17/15

A: Lightly hazy, medium gold with some orange highlights - pours with a medium-sized, bright white head, fades to a wispy cap, leaves some nice streaks and spots of lacing

S: Many hop, much Mosiac - very hoppy, with some big, juicy, orange, grapefruit, peach, and apricot - leafy, resinous, dank, and just straight-up hoppy, like sniffing a bag of hop pellets - lightly spicy - pale, clean malts

T: Extremely hoppy, no surprise - big, juicy citrus - orange and grapefruit flesh, juice, and some zest, rind - wet, resinous hops - tropical fruits, lemon, peach, apricot, pineapple - it's like hop juice - moderate level of bitterness - low level of sweetness - solid malt base, pale grains, light bread, extremely clean

M: Medium body, smooth, nice carbonation, finishes clean

O: Have you ever wondered what Mosaic hops taste like?

Surprise surprise, Hill Farmstead can make a world-class DIPA. This is extremely similar to some other of their others of this style, but that is not a criticism. Excellent stuff. (1,092 characters)

Another great double ipa from Shaun.

I was really impressed with this hop variety. I'm not sure I've had much with mosaic hops.
Anyways the appearance is standard hill farmstead dipa, not much of a head but a little

Smell, lots of citrus, tropical fruits of all kinds hinting around

Taste is very similar

I seem to always love the mouthfeel of Shaun's dipas, thicker than all other dipas and a nice soothing sensation in the throat (444 characters)

Bottle shared thanks to raveskdr, thanks Chris!

The beer pours a nice golden orange with a small feeble head and some lacing, nice hazy body. THe smell is the highlight for me, a very nice pungent hop front with tropical fruit, weed, honey malts, and some more plant like nugget hops. The taste follows suit, but for me it seems like the malt is a little more stronger than I expected with a honey soaked barley not in the middle, with some citrus hops in the front and a very dry bitter finish. I hoped for a bit more hop bite, but instead it is a little more subtle for an american dipa. Nice feel overall, it is very well balanced and the carbo level is spot on. If it was thicker I could s it flirting with a 5.

Overall a very nice offering, nice stuff. (760 characters)

750ml growler poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.

Pour: Completely hazy golden orange, with a thick, sticky three fingers of off white head. Tons of lacing last the entire glass.

Smell: Loads of grapefruit, white pepper, and mangos burst from the glass to start. Some pear creeps in. A stick honey sweetness comes through, and a touch of bread. Nose closes with more sweet citrus.

Taste: First, delicious fresh grapefruit and tangerines. A touch of floral hop character, and lots of clean white pepper. Some pine. A larger bready sweetness than I was expecting, but it works well. Finishes with a sticky sweetness and fresh citrus fruits.

Mouthfeel: Quite sticky, with just a small residual sweetness. Very refreshing. No trace of the 8%.

Overall: Great DIPA. Maybe the least favorite DIPA from HF for me yet, but still head and shoulders above the rest. (858 characters)

64oz growler poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass.

The beer pours a nice honey, orange color that's very hazy. A thick, soapy white head appears, nearly a finger high that has nice retention and leaves behind a great amount of sticky lace. The aroma is very pleasant, lots of mango fruit with tangy grapefruit, light tangerine sweetness, lightly floral at times that finishes with bitter pine and dirty weeds. Lots of mango on the tongue straight away, grapefruit is really strong as well and very juicy with some more tangerine/clementine sweetness that brings out the alcohol a bit. The finish is very bitter and almost astringent, lots of earthy resinous pine and grassiness. The body is nice and juicy, soapy at times that coats the mouth well, finishes with a nice, dry bitter kick.

Verdict: A really enjoyable DIPA from Hill Farmstead, yet another success in their increasingly expanding and impressive hoppy portfolio. While it's not up there in the same breath as Abner or Ephraim, this beer is still very enjoyable and has a nice mix of juicy tropical fruit with some earthy, bitter pine. (1,106 characters)

Presentation: 64 oz. growler filled at the brewery yesterday and poured into a pint glass. Kept chilled since being filled. Also got to sample fresh from the tap at the brewery as part of a taster.

Appearance: Cloudy light orange to yellow in color. Pours a light, fluffy white head that leaves a goregous lacing. Really similar to almost every other HF IPA.

Aroma: Grapefruit and candied citrus from the hops. More of a dank, earthy character than the past couple beers in this series. The Mosiac hops offer a really interesting character I am not too famailar with.

Taste: There is a huge grapefruit flavor upfront in this IPA and it is complimented by some sweet candied citrus and a dank bitterness. The earth tones of this beer are definitely more pronounced than other HF IPAs. Really nice balance of the sweetness and bitterness from the hops. The grapefruit character is really pronounced and relll executed.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied but really crisp and really drinkable.

Overall, a really nice IPA from Hill Farmstead but the hop profile is a bit underwhelming for me. Really well balanced and easy to drink with just an insane amount of bitter grapefruit. Incredibly smooth and tasty, but doesn't stand out too much and the bitterness can get really strong. (1,276 characters)

Massive thanks to cfrances33 for sending this one my way! Split with mnphish and icecoldphatty:

Pours a very hazy honey gold with a soapy finger of paper white foam. Great lacing, lively beading.

Very, very tropical on the nose... mango and pineapple. Dense, lush, bittersweet.

The palate is defined by a big abrasive bitterness. It's more abstract in its expression of the mosaic hop than the nose, there's peach and pineapple. It feels nice and wet, slick, thirst quenching.

I like it. I'd like to become more acquainted with mosaic and I think this is a good start. Thanks Colin! (587 characters)

Hill Farmstead Brewery - Society & Solitude #6, poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

Look - Pours the usual great looking hazy straw color with a vibrant white soapy head that retains a bit and leaves an abundance of chunky lacing all over the glass.

Smell - An array of tropical fruits, dank citrus with a touch of spice. Mangoes, pineapple, passion fruit, etc. Mosiac aroma is similar to Nelson but the differences are obvious as well.

Taste - Mango, pineapple, passion fruit, the hops are center stage, malt doesn't play much into it here, which is what I'm looking for with this style.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with low carb. Rests subtle citrus and juicy. This brew isn't one of those ones warming up enhances, it actually heats up the malt a bit, though the brew does get a big juicier, so this isn't a huge flaw.

Overall - Amazing brew, glad to have been able to have this. (900 characters)

After a sample earlier at the brewery I'm finally sitting down to a full glass of this stuff. From a 750ml growler filled not even ten hours ago.

A - Pours a hazy dark yellow body. Holding it up to the light provides a vibrant ripe peach color. Loads and loads of soapy bone white foam with long lasting retention. Looks perfect.

S - So this is mosaic huh? Huge blast of nectarines, mango and grapefruit. Bitter, sweet, ripe, and juicy with a hint of the danky dank. Has a sort of chalky dry finish.

T - Ripe nectarines and juicy peaches and mango. The finish is lightly bitter. Clean and super tasty, unbelievably juicy fruits here.

M - Medium bodied with nice carbonation. The bitterness does get a bit overwhelming after a glass.

O - This is just excellent, excellent stuff. I still prefer #5 over this beer, but if this is what Mosaic is like than I am all aboard that train. (884 characters)

Poured from a growler into a pint

A - Opaque-ish, white and light orange. Big white head that retains for a long time, leaving lots of lacing.

S - rich tropical citrus, warm smell of orange and mango somewhat slight, but very nice.

T - awesome. Lots of rich and juicy tropical fruit. Mango, orange pineapple. Lots and lots of depth in the flavor, then a big snap of bitterness at the end . Very very good, easy drinking and tasty.

M - medium carbonation, rich, oily, very nice.

O - a top notch ipa. I would pick this up all the time if I could. (549 characters)

750ml Growler picked up at the brewery two days ago. Pours a nice lightly hazy orange and capped by a bit of white sticky head.

Tropical and citrus fruits are right up front on the nose. A bit floral as well. First sip is refreshingly fruity with your typical grapefruit and orange notes packing quite the punch. Bitterness is there but it's certainly not the palate crusher some HF DIPAs are. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied.

Overall, another tasty DIPA from Hill Farmstead as expected. It's getting tough now though to differentiate between all the different Society and Solitude beers. Jucicy, citrusy hops seem to dominate all the ones I've had so far so even with the best of note taking, it's hard to pick a favorite. (733 characters)

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

Poured from a 750 mL growler in to a HF stemmed tulip. The beer was obtained 3/01/2014 from the brewery and consumed on 3/02.

A- Pours a pale orange. Like most all HF DIPAs I have had, the beer is opaque. You can't see your finger through the glass. The pour produces a dense white head with incredible retention. A sticky, unctuous lacing remains. A beautiful beer that could be proudly displayed alongside any of the other greats.

O - Intense citrus - orange peel, grapefruit, and mango are balanced by sharp pine and an herbal note The aroma is just incredible. Unfortunately, the smell is just a bit weak. It doesn't explode from the glass the way some DIPAs do. But quality certainly beats quantity any day and the beer doesn't suffer much.

T - Citrus and pine are really in harmony here. Beautiful mango and grapefruit presence, with some pineapple sharpness as well. The herbal and grassy components linger and eventually dominate the profile. The finish is somewhat reminiscent of mineral water: crisp and dry with a nice herbal quality.

M - One of the real highlights of this beer. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation! It's resinous by not heavy. Drinks like an IPA!

O - What a magnificent DIPA. The heavy use of Mosaic hops give it an atypical flavor profile, but there is marvelous balance. You wouldn't know this is an 8% beer. Another fantastic beer in the Society and Solitude series, and further cements Hill Farmstead's reputation for producing world class IPAs. (1,487 characters)

On tap at HF third anniversary, Pours a hazy golden with thick fluffy head. Aroma has some classic HF dank and resin to it but is mostly tropical fruits forward. Lots of pinneaples, oranges, peaches, etc. Taste is also along those lines with a distinctive citrus acidity to balance the grassy bitterness. Full bodied and highly drinkable. (338 characters)

thanks to ILOVESTOUTS for this one

poured into a HF stemware

appearance: cloudy honey yellow, thin white head, little to no carbonation bubbles, glows well in the light. looks delicious

aroma: soft notes of pine and orange dominate, some real subtle sweetness and some grass/hay smell as well. nice, but nothing stunning

palate: sweet & boozy, not very carbonated, sits well in the mouth, a little bitter going down but thats what you expect from a DIPA

taste: sweet oranges, tangerines, some lemon, a little too sweet tho. the citrusness of it gets overpowered. reminds me of alchemy hour by GL, but it definitely retains the robustness ive seen in other HF ipas

overall: another fantastic brew by these guys. they can do no wrong. very fortunate to have had this one (774 characters)

The beer pours a hazy yellow with touches of gold and a nice fluffy white, two-fingers- width head that stick around and leaves a sticky fat lacing on the glass. The beer’s body is an opaque haze and appears to be free of carbonation bubbles. On the nose, the beer smells pungently of sweet and juicy tropical fruit. Mango, pineapple, touches of grapefruit, tangerine, and even touches of nectarine run across the nose and are backed up with a strong shivering pine resin and a slight caramelly bread malt. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweet and then nicely bitter with a wonderful round feeling that doesn’t wrack the mouth, but does give it a proper tingle. There is also a slight pucker from acidity in this beer. The flavors begin as light and then grow, sweet tropical fruit juice flavors work from pineapple juice into orange and grapefruit flavors and then explode with bitter sticky pine in the mouth. Juicy fruit flavors also run across the palate during the sip. The finish is bitter and a touch medicinal, but thirst quenching and tasty, and the aftertaste shows the light bready malt background of the beer. In the mouth the beer feels medium light in body, and fluffy soft from the carbonation with only a touch of a prickle on the sides of the tongue. This beer also gives a proper thirst quenching snap to the mouth, which is lovely. The mouth is left dry on top and wet on the sides from the slight acidity. Overall, this is a lovely tropical fruit DIPA and a nice introduction to the mosaic hop for me. That this is a single hop beer really shows both the skill of the brewer and the wonder of this new hop variety. This beer is excellent, and you should try it. (1,685 characters)

SS6 fill from a few days ago poured cold. Soapy white head with less lace than hill farm usual. Smells upfront if the mosaic piney, floral, hoppy. Taste is on point with upfront earthy pine needles, floral notes and a smooth coating malt profile. Mouthfeel creamy but semi bitter and dry (287 characters)

This is the first Society & Solitude I've had so I am unable to compare which I feel is a good thing. A lot of people's reviews get hindered by a past recipe or ingredients and it isn't fair to the current version. I had this lovely at Prohibition Pig on tap.

A - pours a hazy, silvery, light orange.

S - nice citrusy smell upfront along with pine and grapefruit. Not an overpowering hoppy smell to it but very subtle.

T - hop bitterness to the front of the tongue. Citrus grapefruit taste appears further back on the tongue. Nice finish to this beer. Bitterness lingers briefly in the finish. Very easy to drink and pretty well balanced.

It's difficult to find something wrong with this beer and I'm glad I had an opportunity to try it. In my opinion, not as good as Abner, another IIPA, but definitely worth a try and grabbing a growler of this. Another success from the Hill Farmstead crew. (899 characters)

Growler to hfs sniffer

A: golden in color it is semi transparent but not necessarily cloudy it had a big fluffy white head that goes away quickly and leaves an average lacing around the edge of the glass.

S:lots and lots of hops upfront and there are different smells too. It is mainly resinous piney hops (mosaic) but there are also notes of citrus as well. Hop bomb and I love It

T: follows the nose with lots of resinous hops upfront that stick to your tongue throughout the finish. Though there is definitely some citrus flavors in the form of mango and grapefruit as it is almost bitter and a little tart at the same time though it is quite bitter in the finish.

M: the resin extends to the feel as you can feel the stickiness for like 30 seconds after one sip. It is oily, crisp and fairly thick for a dipa but it goes down easy and the alcohol is completely hidden. It's a little sticky for my taste

O: really high quality dipa lives up to other S&S I've tried other hfs beers. It is hop bomb with lots of great unique hop flavors. Get this beer if you can. (1,073 characters)

750ml growler poured into a Alchemist stemless glass.

A~ hazy copper orange, not too pretty haha! nice bubbly head with a lot of lacing.

S~ starts with lemon, passion fruit,and grapefruit. followed by earthy, hoppy bitterness.

T~ the mosaic hops really shine here, tons of fruit! passion fruit is the most prevalent with under tones of grapefruit, lemon, orange and guava. all of that leads into some nice dank grass, and earthy pine. followed by a really nice honey flavor which surprised me.

M~ interesting! thicker than most IPA's almost like they really did add honey. other than that easy drinking and nicely carbonated.

O~ half way through this review i was starting to think, wow... all of my HF hoppy reviews are starting to sound the same haha. but i was really inspired once i took a sip, so much going on here. always excited for more of the Society & Solitude series but would it be horrible to say that i'm more excited about the Excursions series, that ones off to a really great start! i had the pleasure of trying Excursions #1 at a tasting last night for the second time and i was blown away once again. must be that "lemon drop" hop. ohhhh this is a S&S#6 review... opps... haha! (1,203 characters)

Fluffy white head with a solid body on top of a cloudy, tawny-gold ale. Aroma filled with overripe pineapple, juicy yet pungent. Cracker-like dry malt aroma underneath.

Flavor brings a big dose of tropical fruit up front, leaning heavily towards pineapple. A rough, resinous edge to the hop bittering keeps the tropical flavors in check. Subtle malt sweetness underneath like a pie crust that's been filled with fruit.

Finishes with a firm bitterness and rather dry, wiping away any hint of residual sweetness. The dryness keeps it dangerously drinkable as you keep going back for another sip after the last. A roller coaster of tropical hop flavor barely held back by some piney resin finish. (695 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)
