64oz growler poured into a Cantillon Degustation Glass, enjoyed on 6.7.14, reviewed from tasting journal.
The beer pours a hazy, golden straw color, surprisingly opaque with a thick white head, about a finger or so with great retention and nice lace. The aroma is super juicy, plenty of tropical fruity hops, honey, citrus, mostly grapefruit peel with a bit of tangerine juiciness, bitterness is light and it has a nice floral character as well. The flavors are wonderful, big, juicy hops, pineapple, mango, tangerine, grapefruit, dank wildflower and grassy earthiness, not too bitter, not too dry, with a soft, doughy malt backbone. The body is nice, sticky, juicy and coats the mouth super well, perfect carbonation that finishes fairly dry, but not too bitingly so.
Verdict: A wonderful IPA from Societe, very reminiscent of a Hill Farmstead IPA, rustic, juicy and lightly malty that doesn't detract from the hops at all. It's refreshing, complex and very well balanced, a lovely IPA.
Serving type: growler
