On Tap

Societe Brewing Co.
San Diego, CA

Clear golden and yellow. Moderate off-white head. Lots of sticky, irregular stick left down the glass. Gorgeous IPA.

Lots of citrus in the aroma (orange and grapefruit) along with some pine notes. Just a bit of bready biscuit, but this is certainly an expressively hoppy IPA. Fantastic, especially given the stylistically low ABV.

This is most certainly an expression of hops in the San Diego style. Fairly bitter for the style and the known ABV, along with lots of grapefruit zest and flesh, juicy citrus (orange and mango), and just a bit of a bread backbone. Well balanced the San Diego way, meaning very hoppy but remarkably drinkable!

Lower medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp, expressive flavors. Fairly disappearing.

Fantastic. If I didn't already have far too much beer to drink at home, I'd have filled up a growler of this.

This one got a bit too grapefruit juice-y for me tastes, with the ample bitterness getting overwhelming by the end of the pint. Reminds me a bit of the astringency that I can get with some VT-style hoppy brews.
