Growler thanks to ehammond1!

A: Murky golden/orange color. Creamy white head.
S: Not as strong as I expected. Citrus, pine and floral but not much.
T: Now the taste is a different story. Love the malt sweetness, can taste a tiny bit of honey. Quite hoppy but well balanced. Bitter grapefruit, orange, mango and pine resin. Moderate bitterness (certainly a bit more than Pupil).
M: Fantastic mouthfeel. Medium bodied with nice, creamy carbonation. Crisp finish. Insanely drinkable.
O: Another great offering from Societe. Even though I prefer Pupil, I would gladly take either one any day.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear golden and orange with a small head, eventually leaving irregular lines of lace down the glass. Nice clarity, very pretty IPA.

Very nice aroma, but the flavor shines significantly more than the aroma. That being said, this still smells great: citrus notes, a bit of pine, along with some floral hop character as well. Complete.

The flavor is quite exceptional, with a hop-forward yet balanced approach: bitter grapefruit flesh along with other assorted citrus (orange and mango?), mild pine, moderate bitterness. A delicious IPA.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. Crisp and incredibly drinkable. Perfect.

A fantastic IPA. I prefer The Pupil slightly, but The Apprentice isn't at all far behind.
