Pours a cloudy yellow golden color with two fingers of the sticky eggshell foam. The nose is so inviting... big fruit notes of mango, pineapple, some citrus even a touch of fuji apple mixed with some earthy straw and pith. The palate follows and is so dialed in with balance between sweet, bitter and earthy, just wow from beginning to end this beer is a DIPA perfection.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On draft at Blackback pub in Waterbury. I also drank a 750 mL of this last week.
The beer appears hazy and golden hued with a half inch of white head. The aroma offers a delectable bouquet of citrus and hops. Malt presence seems minimal - seems very promising so far. OK Iím back...just went to a different universe when I tasted this. To say this is delicious and smooth doesnít begin to do this beer justice. Light bodied without being thin. Dangerously drinkable. Will report back after I come back down from this...reviewed on 7-15-2012

From August 2012. 750ml straight from the source. Pours an extremely opaque orange caramel color. Smells absolutely fantastic, but waht would you expect with galaxy and citra? Grapefruit, mango, pinapple, you name it. Tropical floral bomb. Taste follow with the tropical fruit parade, and a nice hoppy bitterness to round it out.
This may be the best DIPA or beer in general I have ever had. Excited that they are rebrewing the series, just for this installment.

Like all of Hill Farmsteadís beers, fantastic. They were running low when we were there and could only buy Society & Solitude #4 in 750 ml bottles. The place was packed.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Farmhouse, Burlington. Served in a tulip-y like glass.
Pours a glowing golden amber/orange with a thick, frothy white head. Ample lace and excellent retention. Intense fresh hop aroma on the nose of dank citrus and tropical fruits; orange, tangerine, mango and pineapple with some subtle grass. Flavor is stupidly hoppy like and instantly relatable to any other HF IPA. Flavor starts with a Double Citra resin and pulpy hop flavor mid palate and finish with a juicy and tropical fruit Double Galaxy sweetness. Same body as other HF IIPAs, medium thick, well carbonated and chewy. Does Double Citra plus Double Galaxy sound like a good idea to you? Yea.

Hazy light orange color, tinged with peach, thin white head. Bright burst of juicy mangoes, peaches, grapefruits, and oranges. Very mild sweetness that quickly gives way to dried orange peel bitterness. Smooth, crisp, and very soft texture. Lingering bitterness in the finish and virtually no alcohol presence.

Shared growler notes from Craft Ale House. Turbid straw pour with white head. Nose was hoppy, pineapple, mango, tangerine. Vermont/Maine IA flavor with spicy and yeasty hops, pineapple, papaya, mango notes, complex finish, juicy and fresh taste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy apricot colored pour with a mountainous white frothy head. Huge citrus and stone fruits in the nose combine with earthy dankness and resinous citrus rind. Apricot, mandarin, orange, peach, and a hint of scallion come through in the flavor, finishing with sappy dankness. A great blending of two great hop profiles make this beer very interesting after trying the constitutive base beers. Easily as tasty as either of the aforementioned brews. Great body with pillowy effervescence and a dry sappy finish. Loved it!

Growler shared at Sanderís place in NYC during an evening of heavy drinking. Pours a light, hazy gold with a strong, frothy white head. Dry orange citrus nose with some tangering and grapefruit secondarily, along with pine. Medium to big sweet flavor with loads of ripe citrus, juicy pine, some sweet bread. Full bodied with average, smooth carbonation. Juicy and sweet to finish with bunches of resinous pine, some sticky grass, ripe grapefruit and orange. Utterly drinkable. Great balance. Drinks just as smoothly as the lower ABV HF IPAs. Quite a feat.
