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.

Couleur orangé et opaque comme toutes les bières de cette série. Un mélange de sucre tropical et d’amertume intense nous transportent vers une complexité étrange mais tellement intéressante. Des saveurs de pamplemouse, résine, orange, caramel et herbes fraîches se mélangent à merveilles dans ce divin nectar. Sublime, complexe et excessivement bien balancé.

Tap. Cloudy dark gold with a thick, foamy, off white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of pine, grass, grapefruit, light biscuit and caramel. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, grass, biscuit, and light caramel and apice. Medium bodied, smooth with a slightly dry bitter end.

Growler thanks to Charles. Pours a hazy orange gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is tropical fruit, mango and grapefruit, pine, resin. Medium mouth, juicy hop, dank, pine, lingering resin finish, very nice.

Points en extra pour l’originalité. Habituellement lorsque je bois des IPAs "standards" elle sont soit ultra amères ou ultra sucrées. Celle-ci combine les deux alors que l’on perçoit à une assez forte amertume, tout en ayant le côté assez sucré et exotique de la mangue et de l’ananas. C’est franchement original et rafraîchissant. On perçoit à peine les 8% d’alcool, rendant cette bière fort agréable.

Tasted on 4/13/16 from a 750mL swing top growler, big thanks to Drews for sharing. Pours clear pale orange with a thick white head that has some real staying power, leaving thick lace. The nose is earthy and floral hops, with some nice citrus, and just enough balancing bread malt. The flavor is a bit more bread malt, with some earthy hops, plenty of grapefruit peel and softer lemon citrus. The body is medium, somewhat oily, with average carbonation, and a long bitter grapefruit peel finish.

Draft. Pours burnt orange with a thin white head that lingers. String grapefruit bitterness finish with some complexity up front. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml growler bought by me, shared with only me. Pours gold. Off white head. Aroma of diesel/onion with tropical fruit. Taste is semi dry and bitter. Flavor has generous tropical hop expression. Light body, boost is hidden. This is God tier.

750 mL growler. Unknown original review date.
Light golden orange. Cloudy with a small head. Maybe due to the growler?

Smell is pine and then oodles of grapefruit. One-note Columbus hops. Grapefruit overload.

Taste is sweet and citrusy hops nearly giving it the tartness of a fresh grapefruit. I expect it to turn tart as if I was eating a grapefruit, but it turns very bitter, like the pith.

Very bitter flavor, medium-low carbonation. Lots of bitter hops make it tougher to drink that most IPAs.

Interesting. Way too grapefruity. Fascinating taste, but maybe too extreme. Another interesting experiment from HF. Had a later batch of this and really enjoyed it.
