In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Societe Brewing Company The Pupil IPA

Aroma: “Sweet and juicy with grapefruit, orange, and some lemon. A touch of herbal and floral and a bit of pine. Low malt that’s bready and toasty.”

Flavor: “A nice balance between sweet and bitter. Notes of orange, grapefruit, and some lemon hit up front with a juice-like character. There’s also an herbal and floral character. Malt sweetness of biscuit and a little caramel. Pine/resin hops, some grapefruit, toasted malt backing, and then the bitterness slides in, and grows and lingers into a medium finish.”

Overall: “Nice fruity notes. The citrus and hops character came through with good balance of bitterness and complexity.”
