SlovakSniper (3219) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Beau verre de soleil, d’orange, de tangerine, de pêche, de fruits japonais et d’ananas avec des herbes et des aiguilles qui piquent sur un fond céréalier qui craque à chaque inspiration. Saveurs juteuses, fruitées, vitaminées, vertes, campagnardes et épicées. Superbe présence en bouche. Quel beau travail! Arrière-goût fantastique avec une solide présence de pamplemousse et de fleurs. Aromatique, houblons ajustés à merveille, jamais agressive, excessivement facile à boire. Totalement éclatante.

Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Pours hazy orange amber with a white head. Aroma is fresh hop forward with lots of dankness, grapefruit, herbs, mandarin mango and citrus fruits. Just a stunningly good aroma. The taste has those same tropical and citrusy fruits, also a slightly mint-feel and some lemon peel. So refreshing and drinkable. Wop!

On tap at Hill Farmstead tap takeover, Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade October 10th. Pours a cloudy peach with a low white head. Aromas of citrus apricot, peach and some pine notes. Very clear and nuanced aroma profile. Taste is citrus, apricot, peach, resin and some honey notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. By far the best IPA I’ve had - blows everything else out of the water!

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Aroma is focused on citrus hops, bold mango and grapefruit jump out of the glass, some pine and resin. Nice malt in the nose as well, bread, some toast, and notes of honey. Pours hazy golden, thick white head has good retention and laces nicely. Flavor is a fantastic balance of hops and malt. Big burst of hops, lots dank grapefruit and tropical fruit, bitterness is high up front but integrates nicely as the malt flavors come in. Honey and biscuit malt meld well with the hop charge. Medium body and carbonation, smooth and drinkable. Excellent.

jenhesteer (234) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
On tap at Hill Farmstead Brewery and again out of a 750ML Growler in an HFS tulip at around 50 Degrees F. A - Bright and cloudy. Unfiltered and full of gorgeous complexity as a super intense orange color. 3 Fingers of fluffy white head that seems to never go away at least over 5 minutes. Very resilient lacing on the swish and subsequent fiddling with the glass. S - Citra hops dominate the nose. Huge grapefruit, tangerine and lime scents. It’s a citrus bomb with a hint of pine in the back of my throat. T - Huge hop bitterness strikes first. Like Abner or Society 3, the huge citrus notes fill the mouth aided by a big and generous carbonation that is 2nd only to soda in the way the bubbles tingle and fill your mouth and keep on tingling. Huge level of fresh whole oranges juiced into a glass ice cold and refreshing. There is a chewy hop bitterness of pine needles and grapefruit with pineapple. M - Medium body but a mouth drying carbonation. It’s not high carbonation but it’s how the carbonation interacts with the flavors to make the beer better. Susan on cask would simply not be the same. The small level of CO2 makes this beer so much better. Everything is accentuated. O - This is an exceptionally well balanced beer for being so bitter. Every last drop was perfect. i was the first person on RB to review Society & Solitude #5. I gave that beer a 4.8 and, having both of these beers side by side tonight, I stand by that SC5 review. This beer is NOT the same as SC5 but it’s still delicious and drinkable. I won’t give it a 4.8 but it’s damn close. Great job, Shaun!
