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.

Growler to Societe Goblet
App- Super light like a hazy wheat beer with a nice big white head. I am really surprised by the color on this one. A good head with frothy white bubbles. A good amount of sticky cling.
Smell- Tropical fruits and wheaty hops. The aroma is very light with the almost wheat beer esque aroma taking over. I get some pineapple, some wheat, some grass and a little bit of lemon peel on the nose.
Taste- I have noticed the last few IPAs I have had have been on the smaller flavor profile but wonderfully layered. I like how this has the tropical fruits with the pineapple, mango and lemon. The balance of the wheat and hops are striking to me. I like the flavor on this one. Different is definitely good.
Mouth- A smaller medium body with a medium carbonation level on this. The residual flavors of wheat, pineapple and lemon peel are quite nice. A smaller grassy flavor remains as well.
Drink- I can say this is one of a kind. A full growler IMO is the way to go. A glass just doesnt cut it really. I was very glad I made the trek back down to try this one. I will be sure to bring my growler back.
