look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Draft at Churchill's in San Diego, March 2013.
Pours a hazy, pale golden yellow color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. The glass is left coated with large sheets of soapy lacing.
Floral, slightly earthy and oily resinous hop aroma with pine needle and tons of tropical fruit. Lots of grapefruit, papaya, pineapple and orange peel countered by pale biscuit malt, toffee and graham cracker.
Full bodied with a slight creamy texture and a blast of earthy, piny hops countered by a boat load of tropical/citrus fruit notes and a pale makt backbone. Grassy pine needle and earthy bitterness along with a ton of grapefruit, mango, pineapple and lemon peel. Really complex and delicious hop profile. Light pale malts underneath with biscuit and graham cracker. Really well balanced and way too easy to put down. I could drink this all day. Awesome beer! I tried several Societe beers on my last trip to SD and this was the most flavorful. Highly recommended!

A - Straw gold, huge head, slightly murky. Head slow to leave and lots of lace.
S - Bitterness is the primary smell. Can't really discern much else.
T - Light malt profile and definitely lots of bittering hops. Lots of citrus.
M - Mouth is on the light - medium side and in spite of the huge head, the beer itself feels somewhat under carbonated. Balance good and finishes pretty clean.
D - Good beer to try. A new brewery for me. Tried a few other taster while there. While not one my favorites, always fun to check out new stuff.
