4.3/5  rDev +0.9%

A - Pours a hazy golden orange that instantly clears up as the beer warms, one fingered fluffy white head and minimal carbonation.

S - Pungent grassy citrus, some pine presence, and some citrus rind resin.

T - Resiny and dank red grapefruit, light grassiness, some melon, and spicy orange complexity that ends with a bitter pine and grapefruit bite. Peppery citrus zing.

M - Medium body and gentle, mild carbonation on the tongue.

O - Complex for a big IPA with lots of hop forward personality and presence, the aroma is deceiving because although good, it really shines with the hop profile in the taste. This beer is better than its current rating.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden orange. Decent white head. Good collar and nice retention.

Smell - Simcoe-y. Grapefruit and a little bit of that onion to it. Malty with a doughy sweetness.

Taste - Bright citrus and some pale malt sweetness. The grapefruit builds up to an almost pithy grapefruit flavor. Bitter lingering flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium to medium heavy. Sweet and bitter. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Missing the Society magic, I think.

Edit: Had a second growler and it had the Society magic. Rating altered due to magic.

A- Hazy orange, one finger head, some carbonation and leaves a lot of sticky lacing.

S-Dank hops, citrus, grass and pine.

T-Great balance, mild malt then bounds of citrus and tropical hops. Orange as well. nice bitterness.

M-Medium to heavy for the style, nicely carbonated and a nice hop bite.

O-First HF DIPA, man was it amazing. The best of Walden, Nelson Single Hop and Susan. Wonderful.
