617. Hill Farmstead Society & Solitude #6
This is my fifth beer from the Society and Solitude series of double IPAs. Looks like the only ones I have yet to try are #1 and #7. There are similarities to between the various double IPAs from Hill Farmstead, each has the signature hazy orange color and bright white head but they also have distinct flavor profiles due to the different hops used. Society and Solitude #6 uses mostly Mosaic hops.
As noted above this beer has the typical hazy orange color of Hill Farmstead’s beers with a single finger white head. Aroma has a lot of citrus fruits mixed with a nice amount of pine. Taste follows with the same mix of citrus and pine which sounds like two flavors that may compete with one another but they actually work quite well together. There is almost no bitterness in the finish which is surprising for a double IPA but this is just part of what makes Hill Farmstead beer so great.
I know I have said it many times but if you have not been to Hill Farmstead yet you are missing out. I am there about once a month, keep an eye on my Facebook Page as I usually say when I am headed out to Hill, if you see a post and have the time shoot me a message as it would be great to have company on some of these trips.
