Don't do many beer reviews, but this beauty deserved it...

Served from 64oz growler (big thanks to Sarge3130 for sharing)

A - looks like a hazier pineapple juice, light head which faded quickly

S - unbelievable, huge citrus, mango and pineapple bomb. The pineapple stood out the most and I wish they would make an air freshener with this aroma

T - soft and incredibly smooth. Very slight bitterness without it punching you in the face. One if the best IPA's I've had

M - medium carbonation, just wonderfully crafted!

O - i don't enjoy many IPA's in general, but this was incredible. Perfectly balanced with amazing flavor. I wish I had better access to these guys, and will certainly be seeking them out in future trades

Serving type: growler

Big thanks to Nick (OneBeertoRTA)

Poured from 64oz stainless growler into chimay goblet.

Appearance: light golden cloudy. Thin white head.

Aroma: ripe juicy tropical fruits. Foral.

Taste: big peach ripe mango followed by light bitter pine. A little hint of spice. Slight pear skin on the back end. Absolutely no alcohol. Insanely crushable

Mouthfeel: very light and smooth with slight carbonation to cleanse the palate

Overall: awesome ipa that I could drink all day long. Really enjoyable and will seek out again when the warm weather hits PA

Serving type: growler

On tap at The Local in San Diego. Pours a slightly hazy yellow. Big time tropical fruit aromas wafting up, with some light pine and sweetness. Flavor has big pineapple notes, some bitter grapefruit mixed in, a hint of raw vegetal hops (love this flavor), and a nice sweetness on the finish. Very light bodied with high carbonation. My first from Societe and this was an excellent brew with loads of refreshing tropical fruit.

Serving type: on-tap
