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.

On Tap

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.
