Brewed in the San Diego IPA style with the over the top hop character. Nelson Sauvin hops give the beer a settle rye like spice. Strong citrus and floral notes. Beautifully balanced with a crisp clean maltyness. If you are lucky enough to find yourself in the middle of the epic San Diego beer scene, grab one of these as a classic example of the West Coast Style IPA. You will not be disappointed!

Light gold. No carbonation. No had to speak of. Mild lacing.
Dank reminded me of college and smoking a bowl.
Societe has many IPA this one stands out.
Very crisp and clean.
will drink this all day every day when it's bottled.

In love with this beer. If available in bottles my fridge would always be stocked. Guess growlers will have to do.

On tap at Societe. The belle of their lineup.

Big pungent tropical fruit and citrus nose, with a blend of pineapple, mango, ripe tangelos, juicy, tangy and fragrant, intense and pure in expression. The palate is rather devoid of malt, focusing instead on the resiny and pungency that hops can bring(yay!), intensely fruity and moderately bitter. Long, drying, resiny finish with really oily Minneola-like fruity, tangy, brightness. Most excellent.
