On Tap @ Societe

12/08/12
10oz pour

A: Pours a light hazy straw gold body. Call it blonde. Bubbly with a nice half finger of near white suds and some wisps of cling down the drink.

S: Smells of white wine grape, gooseberry, pink grapefruit, mango, melons and pine. Light tropical flower with a nice lemony twist. A sugary sweetness to it but no real traceable malt or alcohol in the nose. Fine aroma with a nice influx of Nelson hops.

T: Tastes leads with white grape and unripe berry. Supporting notes of grapefruit, melon, pine, and a prickly pear like punch. There is an upper moderate amount of perceived bitterness and an awesome charge of herb stems in the finish. Dry malt cracker provides just enough residual sweetness with no real alcohol evident. Super light and refreshingly hoppy. A really great IPA with Nelson’s playing a major part. So juicy!

M: Very light in body with an even upper moderate of carbonation. Lush and prickly. Big drying crisp finish. Oily bitters saturate the palate with some constricting action.

D: Very crushable. Malt is rather tame here with a slightly more assertive hop schedule compared to The Apprentice. Nice use of the Nelson’s without it becoming an Alpine clone.

My favorite Societe offering thus far. These guys have impressed the most with the fine tuning of their recipes more than anything. A must try.
