64 oz. awesome stainless steel growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Golden body, clear with a few wisps.

Smell - Simcoe everwhere. A bit of citrus. Pine. Every kind of hop aroma. Slight biscuit malt.

Taste - Very nice. Variety of hop flavors. Citrus, pine, less simcoe than I expected from the nose. Malty, but never sweet. Grain and a bit of toast. Low bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Probably the growler. Medium body.

Overall - Very tasty IPA. Not a citrus bomb or a hop bomb like most great IPAs.

On tap at Societe Brewing Company in San Diego, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Type: 0.25l (8.45 oz.) draft
Glass: Snifter
From: Tiger! Tiger! In North Park (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $6.00
Purchased: Aug. 4, 2013
Consumed: Aug. 4, 2013
Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel orange color with three fingers of frothy white head when I got it. Great amount of layered lacing on the sides. Average-to-above average retention on the top.

Smelled floral hops, citrus hops, resin hops, a touch of puke, butter, orange, tangerine, apricot and grapefruit. That buttery puke note kept coming through.

First thing I noticed in the taste was how smooth it was. Still floral and citrus hops, tangerine, grapefruit and orange rind.

Light-to-medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.

The bartender recommended this beer and it was almost as good as advertised. Great beer.
