On tap at Draft Bar on Mission Beach. Hazy light golden amber. Nose of pine and spice. Flavor is mostly pine with light sweetness. Long dry bitter finish. onceblind (9688) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Hazy golden under a thin foamy white head. Thick bready but citrus-piney hop aroma with a wee touch of funky sweetness. Smooth body and a leafy hop flavored palate, lights biscuitiness, medium and balanced bitterness throughout, and a leafy slightly piney smooth finish with a fluffy yeast body. ryanscourt (1476) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Heard great thing about the brewery. Unable to make it out but had at the lions share. copestx (227) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2016
Tap at Fish House Encinitas. Dank, medium sweetness, soapy, tangerine, oily resinous, super well-balanced. Really, really, really good. nickd717 (4691) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Draft at Toronado SD. The Apprentice, huh? Trump reference? Will they make IPA great again after all their other good IPAs? Let’s see. Slightly hazy golden pour with a small white head but good lacing. Aroma is hoppy - who’d have thought - with orange, grapefruit, and some slight dank/herbal notes. Flavor is more balanced with a touch of sweet malt then a citrus rind and stone fruit hop punch. Medium bodied with a good resinous feel. Nice but The Pupil had a slightly better brutality to it.

Tap at City Beer. Bright straw gold with some hazy and a lacy head with legs. Dry citrus nose, straw, light malt. Nice bit of sweetness, good malt flavor, lovely fruit. Rounded, peaches, oranges, some tropical fruit. Dry finish.

On tap @ the brewery. Slightly hazy yellow body, lasting white head. Very fragrant fresh tropicl fruit hop character (noticably different profile from the session IPA), pineapple and mango, some graperfuit. Slightly sweet pale malt base, long bitter finish. The kind of IPA I could drink all night. RoccaDarcy (8) - San diego, California, USA - DEC 3, 2015 does not count
Hazy orange pour hoppy floral notes on nose. Flavor is bitter but not too harsh bitter fresh hop bitter. Light malt backbone great brew. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a hazy, pale golden yellow color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. The glass is left coated with large sheets of soapy lacing.
Floral, slightly earthy and oily resinous hop aroma with pine needle and tons of tropical fruit. Lots of grapefruit, papaya, pineapple and orange peel countered by pale biscuit malt, toffee and graham cracker.
Full bodied with a slight creamy texture and a blast of earthy, piny hops countered by a boat load of tropical/citrus fruit notes and a pale makt backbone. Grassy pine needle and earthy bitterness along with a ton of grapefruit, mango, pineapple and lemon peel. Really complex and delicious hop profile. Light pale malts underneath with biscuit and graham cracker. Really well balanced and way too easy to put down. I could drink this all day. Awesome beer! I tried several Societe beers on my last trip to SD and this was the most flavorful. Highly recommended! reggiedunlop (3725) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Pours a clear golden/orange with a creamy medium white head...heavy lacing. Aroma has notes of hoppy spice, citrus rind, herbal hops, and earthy/piney bitterness. Lots going on and great balance of hoppy flavors. Mouthfeel is medium and very slightly oily with a dry earthy/resinous finish. Really nice!
