Hops at Societe

I stopped by Societe Brewing yesterday while on the way to another brewery, and so glad I did. As soon as I saw the hops growing outside their tasting room window, I knew it was going to be a nice experience. And I was right.

As soon as I walked in I was greeted with a welcoming smile and hello from the bartender. When I asked for her recommendation for a flagship beer she easily provided me with one: The Pupil IPA.

Societe categorizes their beers by “Out West,” “Old World,” and “Stygian.” The Pupil IPA falls under the “Out West” category as a West Coast style IPA, also known now as a San Diego Pale Ale. Unfortunately for me, I had only enough time for one of their beers, and here is how I rated it:

Appearance-  small head, light golden color, clear body with no particles, spare lacing with good retention.

Aroma-  light malt character from grain, citrus nose from hops, delicate yeast, average alcohol.

Palate-  medium body with slick texture, slightly fizzy carbonation, medium bitterness

Flavor-  average, balanced sweet and bitter, clean finish typical of an American IPA, West Coast style

Overall-  a very nice West Coast IPA/San Diego Pale Ale.  I would drink another in the future, but would like to try the other brews at Societe, too.
