4.88/5 rDev +10.2%
Headed to Societe after the DDG release to see what all the fuss was about.
Started with the stout which was fantastic and then moved on to the Pupil.
Nothing to exotic on the color, nice yellowish mellow orange. Two inches of head and excitement all around me. The smell was a nice fruity tropical mellow pine. The taste.... wow, damn, holy smokes. There is virtually no malt and rich tropical fruit, mango, guava just lingering on the taste buds. Moderate/perfect carbonation and an incredible mouthfeel that leaves you begging for more. I just couldn't stop drinking it. It reminds me of Pliny mixed with the first generation of Sculpin that was heavy in tropical fruit.
This is something very special. When they start bottling I will unfortunately be making the 100 mile trek weekly. Must try for any IPA lover.

3.94/5 rDev -11.1%
Appearance: Poured a hazy golden orange with a nice light whitish head
Smell: Citrus forward, with pineapple dominant, a bit of lemon a hint of floral hoppiness
Taste: More pine than the nose, not a ton of bitterness at first but more pronounced as I drink more, great pineapple and grapefruit notes
Mouthfeel: Moderate bitterness and medium bodied with good carbonation for the style.
Overall: Pretty solid IPA, not my favorite but quite good!

Huge thanks to ehammond1!
A: LIght golden hazy color. Creamy white head. Tons of lacing left in the glass. No carbonation problems at all.
S: Juicy citrus and pine pretty much dominate.
T: Sweet maltiness balanced with a burst of tropical fruits. For some reason, this was missing from the aroma. Tons of peach, guava, pineapple, mango, tangerines. Very well balanced bitterness.
M: Medium/full bodied with a crisp, dry finish. Pleasant carbonation.
O: One of the best IPAs I've had the pleasure of trying. Nice use of Nelson, a hop that's quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Bug thanks to ehammond1 for this growler...
A: Pours a light gold, slightly murky, with one full finger of fluffy white head. The foam takes forever to settle, and thee is a ton of lacing as this bee drinks. The look of this beer is stunning.
S: The nose is really nice. Fresh hop vegetal, pine, and lime citrus. Really nice.
T: It starts off wet and refreshing with some really nice fresh hop flavor. It's bright and crisp with muted vegetation. As it moves to the back end, it gets sweet while simultaniously bringing out lime citrus and pine notes. The finish is big hops, but nothing astringent or burning.
M: Light bodied beer. Light and refreshing to start, hoppy and assertive, but not overwhelming. Super drinkable IPA. You'd think the abv of this beer was significantly less than 7.5%.
O: I am a fan. This beer is super drinkable, packed with delicious favor, and it looks beautiful. This one is a winner. I wish I could have more of this in my life.
