Society and Solitude #3: The series of experimental Double IPAs continues. This one is hopped with ample amounts of Columbus and is reminiscent of… an Imperial Harlan.

On tap at Pony Bar. Pours hazy golden light orange, white head. Aroma is pine, caramel malts, floral hops, citrus. Flavor is bitter pine, citrus pith, caramel, bread, herbal/floral note. More of an edge here than other societies, bitter traditional DIPA.

Art (3000) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Taste from growler at kickback share. Pours a hazy pale golden yellow orange with a slight white head. Aromas of lemon and tangerine and a bit of pine. Taste is more bitter than I was expecting but beer is pretty solid for a straight Columbus bomb. A tad on the syrupy side too. Been surpassed by the "new kids" but still good stuff.

750mL growler filled 5/27/16, drunk 6/9/16.
Large, fluffy, well-retained, white head tops a lightly-to-moderately hazy, soft-brass gold body.
Expecting a big grapefruit/pine nose, I’m shocked to find, while definitely some pine and white grapefruit, A LOT of watermelon and mango. Very juicy and with only a touch of resin. There’s a touch of sourdough-like character that I’m not sure belongs to the hops or a specialty malt, but it intrudes a little bit in to the overall enjoyment of the nose, but is fairly passing as the beer warms and breathes. Really takes on quite the dank and melon-filled character over time, leaving light biscuit and honey behind it and no alcohol or flaw.
Fantastically soft, malty, tightly carbonated mouthfeel easily balances the moderate bitterness and pinch of pine/white grapefruit. Lots of pleasant, milder tangerin/orange/mango notes add loads of juiciness and there’s a good shot of acidity on the end to give balance and clear the palate somewhat. Fantastic one, as usual....

750 mL flip too opened with ebone1988 in the hotel. The pour is a darker golden yellow with s th I’m white head that falls down to a bubbly collar leaving some awesome lacing. The aroma is juicy and bitter and lovely. There is an awesome bitter hop with a light dankness on the back end. I like it. The flavor is good. There is a juicy hop with a lot of pine resin and bitterness. It’s really good. I love the juiciness. He dank hops and line resin are just a bonus of complexity. The mouth feel is good. There is a light to medium body to it with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly bitter citrus and resin hoppiness. This is a damn good beer.

Couleur orangé et opaque comme toutes les bières de cette série. Un mélange de sucre tropical et d’amertume intense nous transportent vers une complexité étrange mais tellement intéressante. Des saveurs de pamplemouse, résine, orange, caramel et herbes fraîches se mélangent à merveilles dans ce divin nectar. Sublime, complexe et excessivement bien balancé.
