Societe Brewing Company The Apprentice

What the brewers say

“The Apprentice is a dry, medium-bodied, exceptionally hoppy IPA leading with assertive bitterness. Flavors of pine and bitter citrus fruit come strong, accented by grapefruit citrus undertones which accent this delectable beer’s dry finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Dank, resinous hops with nice spicy undertones of Thai basil, mint, delicate onion/shallots. It’s citrus-forward with lemon, tangerine, orange, grapefruit, and a touch of lime. Tropical esters, mostly mango and mild pineapple. Just a touch of bready malt.”

Flavor: “Piney and resinous notes accompany complex citrus (it’s every citrus fruit I can name). Moderate sweetness, moderate-high bitterness. Dry. The citrus hops profile dominates the simple malt bill. The bitterness carries in the finish and is slightly astringent.”

Overall: “Pretty classic West Coast style—dank and citrusy with a bit of onion. A bit on the sweet side but still nice overall.”
