12 oz. can dated 7/23/18 and purchased at brewery 7/28/18. Poured into Belgian ale glass.

L; 1F head with some lacing and a cap and ring. Beer is a hazy bright golden-orange.

S: Ripe tropical fruit and a lot of earthiness. These hops are pretty earthy, piney, bitter as it is.

T: Malts definitely have come forward at this point - in fact we are starting to push on the (welcome) best buy date stamped on the bottom. Lots of earthiness in place of fruit, but still some citrus and melon with the pine and herbal, earthy character. Assuming the oats and honey pulls the bitterness back to neutral, but they are not terrifically evident.

F: Medium bodied, Reasonably lively carbonation. Construction and balance are strong.

O: As it stands, just doesn't have enough to distinguish it from any number of well-constructed traditional DIPAs.

Poured from a growler filled at the brewery.

Pours a hazy amber orange color with 2 fingers of fluffy off-white head. The head sticks around for a while, leaving a ton of sticky cobweb lacing as it settles into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of oranges, grapefruit, honeydew melon, and white grapes with a touch of earthy spice on the back end.

The flavor brings a ton of pineapples, oranges, melon, mangoes, and sweet cereal grains followed by a strong wave of honey and white grapes. Finishes subtly rindy and bitter.

The feel is medium bodied with moderately low carbonation. Very soft, smooth and creamy, with a dry finish.

Overall, a fantastic DIPA and definitely one of the better Society beers by HF. It's bursting with flavors from all three hops and remains exceptionally drinkable and soft. So delicious.
