Picked up at Hill Farmstead on 4-21. Put it in the fridge. Poured into an HFS glass on 4-23.A – Poured beautifully. Half a finger cream colored head with some decent head lacing. The bubbles stuck around for a while. The beer is a beautiful orange gold color SRM of 3 with lots of clouds / haze in the glass. Really spectacular looking.
S – Shaun was right. Totally an Imperial Harlan by scent. Really nice hop profile that fills the nostrils. Ruby red grapefruit, nectarine and other great citrus scents. Hints of lemon as well with a wee bit of honey. Just the right amount of hoppiness.
T – Heavenly. Very few beers taste like they smell. Very rich grapefruit juice, tangerines and some melon. Great hop finish that covers the tongue and stays around for a while.
M – 95% carbonation on the mouth swish, medium body and very dry finish. Carbonation is almost champagne-like.
O – Society 2 was my favorite black IPA. Society 3 may be my favorite Double IPA. Another fantastic tasting beer from Shaun Hill. The only thing wrong with it is the lack of it being on tap at my house to drink every night.
