Pretty likeable IPA here from the folks @ Societe, yellow gold and fairly clear, nice rim of foam, the appearance sort of portends what's to come: a solid, likeable, if not necessarily outstanding, IPA. Nose is bright, citrusy, little bit of something tropical -- pineapple, maybe? -- onto a crisp palate, light malt presence, citrus bitterness that cleans up nicely in the finish. Likeable sounds like a pejorative, but it shouldn't be -- this is a good beer.

Nice clear yellow pour. Distinct scallion in the aroma, not sure what the hop/yeast combination might be to produce that. Very distinctive and nice. Great taste and nice light lingering bitterness.

Nice bright yellow pour, vibrancy, glow. Super citrus and tropical fruit with a new hop variety.

Taste is superior, dry malt, hop forward flavors. Dumps just all kinds of fruit flavors, tropical and citrus over and over, really light body. Great stuff.

On tap at SD Brewco, poured into a pint.

A Northwest-style IPA, this cloudy, orange-cream colored brew yields a floral, malty nose. Grassy notes, earthy tea and a bit of bitter pine on the palate. A little biscuity toward the close, which has a medium finish with some lingering bitter residuals. Drinkable, satisfying, but nothing earth shattering from the boys at Societe.
