Verecund (82) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2012
750ml growler opened on September 4, 2012. Im 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 cant 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 galaxys 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 Im convinced Shaun knows something other brewers dont. 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.

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Pours nice and thick with a beautiful bright head. Citrus hops on the nose. Flavor of the citra hops helps balance the galaxy in an awesome way!

bellco33 (805) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Poured from a growler into a tulip: Pours hazy orange with a one finger foamy white head. Aroma is a straight citrus pale ale, lots of grapefruit and orange. Taste is more of the same, so much flavor not a hint of booze. Medium body, perfect carbonation, slight sticky. Really awesome.

thepatrickman (1286) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 12, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Pungent grapefruit and sweet citrus aromas and flavors, before it all finishes quickly and dry. This is outrageously well-made and delicious.

Sudz4Dayz (135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2017
750ml growler purchased on site, drank fresh. Pours a beautiful golden orange, super hazy like a thick juice bomb. Nice foamy, slightly carbonated white head leaving thick lacing. Smells of straight citra hops, smooth citrus, grapefruit bomb and sweet floral hops. Lovely. Tastes delicious. Super well balanced hops, floral, citrus, grapefruit, small, small malts. Nice hoppy bitterness that you look for in a DIPA. The blend of citra and galaxy hops is beautiful in this one. Full mouthfeel leaving a wonderful aftertaste. Another successful SS from Hill Farmstead. Shaun Hills consistency is unparalleled.

Garrold (5073) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2016
Tap. Doc Ponds, Stowe, VT. Very hazy, orange gold. Thick, dense, super sticky, lasting, white head. Nose has freshly squeezed, pulpy, orange and lime. Some sappy pine. Vanilla sweet malts. Clean and bright. Taste is crisp, pithy, orange oil bitter. Trace of chewy sweetness. Mouthfeel is ridiculously juicy. No trace of the ABV. The juicy oiliness stays the course. Scary easy drinking.

Pours a hazy bright orange with white head. A string grapefruit, floral and hop aroma. A strong citrus hop bomb, floral and pine taste. A lingering sweet citrus and mild bitter hoo aftertaste.

Nische (2145) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2016
Backlog. CBC Green Session 2016. Hazy, juicy, bright yellow with white head. Dank aroma with grain, citrus, lemon zest and a bit of pine. Similar taste with loads of orange, pine, peach and a bit of dankness. Exceptionally well balanced. Dry, crisp, heavily bitter end.
