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!

Clear honey colored pour,one finger bone white head,solid lacing in the snifter.

Aroma is a combination of moderately juicy hops and a slight whiff of alcohol.

Taste is an improvement over the aroma: soft tropical flavors with a nicely rounded aftertaste that borders bitterness and savory.

Mouthfeel is really nice, appropriate carbonation and a pleasant creamy texture.Goes down nice and easy with no trace of alcohol that was detected in the nose.

Solid West Coast IPA worthy of trying if you are able to get your hands on it.
