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.

Pour looks like most HF IPA's, hazed bright yellow with small amount of tight white head. Nose is hop forward with faint malt balance and a hint of grain. Hops are tropical, grapefruit and mango with a touch of pine and herbal hops. Taste is more tropical fruit forward. Bright hops, mango and pear with a faint touch of herbal grassy hop through the finish. Bitterness is very light, mild carbonation with a medium to light body and juicy feel.
