Verecund (82) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2012
750ml growler opened on September 4, 2012. Iím fearful for the day when a google search of "Society & Solitude" brings up Hill Farmstead beers instead of Emerson, but according to Greg Currie, literature canít give us insight into the mind and its workings anyways, so I drink Hill Farmstead when I could be reading Emerson.

Pours a cloudy tangerine yellow-orange. A finger of resilient, creamy white head sticks around.

Riper-than-ripe juicyfruit nose. Unbelievable tropical fruit, mango, tangerine, lemon citrus, pineapple, maybe a hint of green leafy bitterness. Bright, bitter, and brilliant.

More of the same. A citra bomb on the front of the palate, beaming citrus and pineapple, playing right into galaxyís passionfruit/tropical fruit brilliance. Mango juice. This beer sweats more juicy, fruity bitterness than other beers are made of. Resinous finish. Just enough sweetness to pull this back from the too-bitter.

Creamy; medium, medium light bodied.

At this point Iím convinced Shaun knows something other brewers donít. One of my personal favorites from his repertoire of IPAs/DIPAs, and playing right into my weaknesses, S&S #4 is a nearly perfect showcase of what citra and galaxy can do.

Rating #2400! Thanks to Corbet for this beauty. The pour is a turbid light yellow orange with a thick cap of white head that falls down to a film, leaving good lace. The aroma is awesome. The citrus are fantastic. Huge and juicy with a nice Galaxy hop presence. This is a thing of beauty. Fuck. The flavor is also juicy as fuck. Itís like a freshed squeezed bitter juice. Jeebus. The bitter dry hop is awesome. Iím trying to figure out if this is bitter juice or juicy bitter. The balance is spectacular. I canít believe I havenít had this yet. The mouth feel is a little heavy and creamy with a brighter carbonation and a lingering bitter juice for days. This is probably my favorite S&S from Hill Farmstead. Jesus.

puboflyons (3066) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 21, 2016
From the growler obtained at the brewery. Murky looking orange pale-yellow pour. Moderate white head. Fruity esters of cantaloupe. Other esters of citrus juice and a dim toasted malt presence. No booze for 8.3%. Medium to heavy body with a definite acidity. The taste is fruit and citrus forward with a potent bitter bite at the finish. Not a dry one but a juicy finish.

Tap @ CBC 16. Pours murky yellow with white head. Aroma is quite dank with slight grainy notes, citrus, lemon zest, orange and slight pine. The taste is dank, bitter, lots of citrus, orange, slight malts and peach. Good but far from the best hoppy HF.
