Pours an impressive bright yellow that should never be mistaken for BMC, it comes in lookin' like a heady brew. The aroma is exactly what a hop forward San Diego ipa should be, varied citrus and tropical fruit teamed with a green vegetal new proprietary hop essence.
Taste is even superior to the good dry hop aroma, when buckets of hops drink effortlessly, when its just in the zone so to speak. You're getting gobs of hop mouthfeel, but little to no alcohol, just barely enough malt and sweetness (crystal kept away or to a minimum here) to boost the hops even further into prominence. You're tasting more of the papaya, mango, lemon and tangerine than you were smelling. Maybe some chinook hop creating a very mild spicy/mint/bitter edge very late in the aftertaste.
These guys have really broken into the most market saturated place for this style beer, but they really are off to an amazing first year with a couple of these ipa's I've tried. Had on tap at Churchills Pub in November 2012.

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA
Cloudy light golden and yellow with a thin white head. Lined lacing left down the glass.
Straightforward, accessible, enjoyable aroma: citrus hop notes (grapefruit in particular), some pine, some caramel and bread, and a distinct grain presence.
The flavor is nice and is similar to the aroma: citrus notes, some pine and earth, a bit of sweetness, and a distinct character of grain.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.
Certainly good, but a letdown only because Societe's other IPAs have been such standouts.
