Not a huge fan of the Nelson hop profile, but this beer is very good. Clean and very hoppy.

Pint poured at societe brewery in Kearney Mesa. Pours hazy yellow with small white head. Smells of tropical fruit and pine. Taste is hops with citrus (seems to be common flavor in San Diego). Another great beer. Great for sipping in warm weather. Gonna miss this place.

This is a perfect beer. My only issue is that Societe doesn’t bottle or can it.

Growler shared by Michael T. Thanks man! Yellow body, almost clear, half inch of white head. Bouquet of hops in the aroma. Lovely citrus fruit hop character. Soft bitterness. Really fresh and delightful.

Homer321 (3767) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2016
First beer of my RBWG 16 trip. Tap. City beer. Strong citra nose with light grass. A light thin malt backbone, just short of watery. Minimal carbonation. Hope come across as mostly grassy in the flavor. Decent but not grate.

DuffMan (8815) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 20, 2016
On tap @ the brewery. Hazy light yellow, lasting white head. Hop profile is grassy and green with some gooseberries and guava, grapefruit too. Very bright, with slightly sweet pale malts, and a long bitter finish. Man, these guys make nice hoppy beers.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
Rating #1516 - 17.03.2015 - On tap at Amplified Ale Works. Pours a golden amber with a bubbly light head. Aroma is mild grass, mild pepper, mild doughy malt. Other reviews suggest a fruit bomb, my pour had a very faint hint of orange rind, but otherwise light sweet malt, light pepper, low-medium carbonation. Not great, I feel I got an offpour (end of keg, old keg?)

Hazy orange pour. Hoppy aroma of fruits. Taste of floral and fruity hops and malty finish. Very nice drinkable hoppy pale

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Draft at Hamilton’s Tavern in San Diego, CA. March, 2013. Pours a very hazy, pale golden straw yellow color with banana hues and a 1.5 finger frothy, pillowy white head. Nice retention, slowly settling into a thick, lasting ring. The pint is left coated with streaks of soapy lacing. Dank floral hop aroma with grassy pine and a ton of tropical/citrus fruit. Pale biscuity malt backbone with cracker, bread and light fruit. Resinous oils, dank buds and pine followed by hints of grapefruit, pineapple and lemon peel. The earthy and sweet hop notes are countered by biscuit, bread and graham cracker. Medium bodied with a crisp, spicy hop bite that lingers throughout. The mouthfeel is perfect. Light enough to pound yet a touch creamy with a complex hop profile and subtle pale malt presence. Dry, dank and bitter up front with a perfect fruit presence. Not overly tropical/citrusy like some other WCIPAs but just enough for great balance. Some pineapple and grapefruit sweetness along with subtle citrus rind. Pale malt backbone with biscuit, bread and cracker flavors that don’t interfere with the fresh hop character. This is a great IPA that very refreshing and easy to drink without giving up any complexity. I would drink this beer all of the time given the chance.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a hazy gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of straw, lemon zest, grapefruit and light dank bud. Palate was ligjt bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of straw, grapefruit and a hint of earthiness with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.
