Share This Review

$eeing Green is an American Double IPA brewed in the New England style by Civil Society Brewing Co. For the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.

Appearance

The hazy DIPA pours an opaque yellow ochre and is topped by a tall stack of rocky off-white foam that shows excellent retention.

Aroma

The aroma is bursting with tropical fruit. You’ll smell it as soon as you pop open the can. The aromatics deliver a juicy scent of peach, pineapple, and mango.

Flavor

The palate begins with a taste of doughy bread that recedes to sweet and mellow note of pineapple. A juicy bite of grapefruit and orange followed by pine and some resin. Finishes with a taste of booze.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth and creamy with a body that’s medium-full and moderate carbonation. Dry throughout and finishes with a mild warming sensation.

Overall

The aroma doesn’t last long but even during that short time, it is amazing. The flavors are fantastic. Unfortunately, the booze isn’t as well-concealed as many of the IPAs from Civil Society and its finish is a little hot. Otherwise, $eeing Green is a juicy must.

About the American Double IPA

Also known as an Imperial IPA, the American Double IPA is a stronger and higher hopped version of the American IPA. The style originated in the 1990s when craft breweries wanted to provide a more intense offering to hopheads. The DIPA has more hop bitterness than Strong Ales and Barleywines but has less alcohol.
