Draft at Small Bar in San Diego, CA. March 2013.

Pours a hazy, pale golden yellow color with a two finger frothy, pillowy white head.  Excellent retention, only slowly settling into a thick cap and lasting ring.  Streaks and chunks of soapy lacing left behind.  

Floral grassy hop aroma with straw, dank buds and pine needle along with strong citrus/tropical fruit notes and pale malt.  Lots of grapefruit, pineapple and orange peel followed by biscuit and crackery malt.  Pretty dank/resinous.

Fuller bodied than expected with a slightly creamy texture.  Crisp hop bite with dry, sticky bitterness up front lingering over the sweet fruit notes and pale malt backbone into a dry finish.  Grassy with pine needle and dank buds countered by bread biscuit and a dry crackery character. Citrus/tropical fruit presence isn't as strong as in the nose.  Just faintly there adding subtle sweetness.  Still, this beer is light, well balanced and easy to drink.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad – 05/18/13
Standard pint glass

A: The Bachelor pours a soft dull straw gold color with some slight haze to it. Looks pretty light in body. Thin rim of paper white head tops the glass providing a protective layer from the elements for a few moments. There are some nice wavy splashes of stick down the glass.

S: Smells pretty floral with a classic mix of pine and citrus. It is rather zesty with a nice lemony herbal sprig note. There is some very weak pale malt sweetness as well that is almost bread like. Not incredible potent but hop forward none the less.

T: Taste is classical Cascade hops with a firm presence of evergreens, citrus peels of tangerine/orange and lemon, and some herbal weed stems mixed in. The beer has a very dry malt cracker like base that really showcases the hops. Overall perceived bitterness is on the lower end as with most of Societe’s hoppy beers. You get more flavor and aroma additions than bittering per say. Alcohol completely disguised. Another well balanced and drinkable IPA. Makes for a nice warm up beer that is light crisp and refreshingly hoppy but doesn’t annihilate your palate.

M: Very light and even watery thin at times but with a great drying crisp finish that snaps off at the end. Leaving a trail of light residual hop oils and malt sugars.

D: I found this very drinkable being that it is light crisp and hoppy with some classic hop flavors. I think Societe does a fine job in practicing balance with their beers and the Bachelor is no exception. Nothing very innovative or mind blowing but I would gladly have more.
