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.

750 ML from brewery. Pours a hazy dull golden color.... with a snappy aroma of fresh hops a touch of tropical fruit and grass. The flavors are spot on crisp and direct. Great flavors of grapefruit, pine and a slight floral bouquet lead into a classic bitter hop finish. Clean easy drinker for an 8% Double IPA.

750 ml fliptop shared by Kan. Thanks, man! Pours a rich dulled golden orange hue. Firm haze with with a loose ringing offwhite head that sticks around, laces small. Aromas are dank, tons of lemon and weedy hops. Some tropical elements, grapefruit, melon. Tons of melon piles on, some bready malts, grass, and tropical fruit, oranges. Rich hoppy nose. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied preaching firm bitterness up front, dry lemons and grass, florals and tons of melon. Some tropical fruit, gentle grapefruit, more florals, bready malts. Middle shows a fruity melange, mellow sweetness, dry florals and a kick of ABV heat as we move towards the backend. Sun tan lotion and lemons, dry firmness, kicking the palate and lingering finish. Very fruit forward, dry clean finish. Surprisingly small malt element, touches of heat in the finish. Pretty nice. Could use a more lingering rich hoppy dryness. Solid. Great nose and front end.

Another outstanding offering from Mr. Hill. Being a double ipa its strong but not overpowering. Good balance of hops and citrus. Slight floral note as well. Very clean beer. (well water)

pushkinwow (2099) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2012
Growler from John, delivered fresh from HF. Translucent bright orange with a light biege head. Powerful without overwhelming citrus - peach and some pineapple seem to balance things out - also get some nice resin, and a muted doughy malt too. Moderate carbonation, fairly full body, nice balanced bitterness that grows to a great finish with amazing citrus and pine - alcohol finally appears at the end. Delicious.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - APR 21, 2012
Tasted on several occasions fresh from the tap while in Vermont. Light golden orange color with a touch of haze in the glass. Fluffy white head. Aromas begin with what seems to be the earthy dankness of the Columbus hops. Flavors full of floral, grassy, and citrus notes. Mixture of hop flavors going on here.Tangerine, lemon, and grapefruit. Super fresh clean flavors. No hint of heat or alcohol. Finish is perfectly dry and balanced. Loved it.

Growler 750 ml. Appearance: Cloudy yellow/orange. Creamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma: Peaches, citrus and hops. Very nice fruity nose. Taste: Citrus, fruits and pine. Strong bitterness and lingering pungent aftertaste. Overall: Good stuff, very nice DIPA with HF signature.

nickd717 (3569) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 18, 2012
Growler thanks to largadeer. Hazy golden orangish color with a one finger white head that fades to foam. Big grapefruit on the aroma, supremely hoppy with some honey malt notes. The flavor has very mild sweetness balanced by huge, huge grapefruit hops. Really intense and tasty. Medium-bodied with enamel-shredding bitterness. Excellent DIPA.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany!), pours a cloudy orangey yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is very piney and floral hop-heavy, with truckloads of piney hops and balanced doughy malt to back. Flavour begins exceedingly piney, with loads of resinous and floral hops as well, some citrus and grapefruity in there as well. The malt backing isn’t obvious from the flavour, but the palate is quite thick and chewy for a Double IPA. Finishes dry, with loads of piney and some herbal (a bit pot-like) hops. Absolutely beautiful.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2012
On tap at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, VT. Pours a cloudy, bright orange, gold tinted body with a finger-width, dense, foamy and frothy, pure white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a lot of lacing. Pretty gorgeous beer. Aroma is big grapefruit and citrus pine resins with some tropical fruits and a light caramel. Lots of fresh citruses on the nose here. Flavor is similar. Lots of juicy citruses up front with plenty of pine resins and big floral tropical fruits. A light bready caramel behind the fresh hops before the grapefruits come out nicely towards the end with lots of floral fruits and citruses. Finishes dry with a moderate bitterness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Very soft, medium-light body with a ultra soft, moderate, almost fluffy feeling carbonation. Overall, an excellent DIPA. Wonderful balance and such a nice feel to this. Tons of fresh citruses balanced well with florals, pines, and tropical fruits as well as just a touch of malt backing. This was pretty awesome.
