COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Lightly hazy orange color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, strong pine, herbal, some orange, and light citrus. Taste of citrus, pine, herb, light tobacco, and a grapefruit finish.

RoyalFlushing (322) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2012
On tap at Boilermaker. Poured a cloudy deep golden orange with a medium sized creamy white head. Big citrus aroma of tangerine, clementine, papaya, followed by hints of caramel malt and piney hops. Citrus is more apparent in the flavor and peachy apricot notes introduce themselves, wonderfully balanced by a pine resin mouthfeel and a smooth finish.

GMCC2181 (1495) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Draft at Jose Pistolas... Nice pour! Bright orange in color, good head. Smells great. Lots of tropical fruits. Taste just like it smells. Fruity, light grapefruit, orange, light mango. No one particular flavor stands out, well balanced. Light/medium body. JUICY! Really easy to drink. Overall I would of been happy drinking this all night long

On tap at boiler, pours glowing mimosa orange, large clear tiny bibble head, amazing lacing. Aromas of fresh hops, citrus fruits, pepper, pine. Taste is sweet citrus, tangy columbus hops, cheese, orange peel, malt, earthy grains and grass, bitter finish. Awesome

callmemickey (2252) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 @ Boilermaker. Appearance is medium orange-straw. Large white head. Spotty lacing. Grapefruit, mango, pineapple and a fair bit of resinous hops. Somewhat muted for an imperial. Flavor is a bit drowned out by an aggressive (but not crazy) bitterness which distracts a bit from the grapefruit and tropical fruits. Medium bodied. Moderate to high carbonation. Dry finish.

Tmoney99 (10068) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy golden copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy complex floral hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet herbal flavor with a medium to heavy complex bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

tap at HF ann party. easily one of my favorite beers of the day during a day of many wonderful beers. Harlan is one of my favorite HF brews, think i gave it like a 4.6 or something. imperial harlan? well i would sure love to try it. quite good. aroma explodes with huge juicy tropical fruits, grapefruit, and fresh juicy oranges. hop forward for sure, but not overly bitter. pleasant apricot and orange fruit sweetness lends nice balance. dry. ultra tasty fresh on tap from the source. real nice.
