Lightly hazy golden with a thin white cap. Lovely grassy and lightly piney nose that’s a touch peppery and pale malty. Crisp delightful flavor that’s pale malty but pops with grassy and leafy bitter hops and a bright pithy bitterness. Bready though bitter and resiny.

Had this once before and thought it was decent (3.75 on Untappd), but nothing special. Snuck over to Societe after dropping something off for work and heading to a local hospital quick to review a quick one. Hoping this would be better than I originally had it.
Poured a golden yellow, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy white head when I got it. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good spotty lacing. Above average retention. (Sight - 3.75)
Smelled nice and tropical up front, specifically guava and mango. Also floral hops, Nelson-like and Citra. First part of sell was great, but it thinned out rather quickly. (Smell - 4.25)
Taste wasn’t quite as good as the nose, but still followed it. Got dry tropical hops mango, bitter tropical rind, guava, Citra, spicy (Simcoe or Amarillo), hints of Nelson, resin and lemon zest. (Taste - 4.00)
Light-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt bitter finish. Goes down nice. (Feel - 4.25)
A very good IPA, even better than I thought it would be. (Overall - 4.00)

Tap at Societe and later at Biergarden Encinitas. Minimal head, dank and citrusy aroma, strong stonefruit and apricot flavours, mild bitterness (in comparison to other West Coast IPAs. I could drink this all day. Fantastic post-surf beer. nickd717 (4885) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Draft at Toronado SD. Hazy straw color with a lacy whIte head. Aroma is dank as F, grapefruit, lemon, herb. The flavor is tough, citrusy, brutal. Legit. Rough feel, lots of reasons, average carbonation. Strong offering. ryanhunter_4 (333) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016
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. GRM (4173) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016
