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

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.

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.

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.
