Des malts épais et un peu génériques transportent les agrumes et résines diluées. L’amertume est modeste comme les aromatiques.

Somehow I’ve never rated this beer and I’ve had probably about 50 of them. Due South 2nd anniversary party draft in a plastic cup. Pours a golden brown with a one finger head. Not sure about lacing in my plastic cup LOL. Aroma is hop funk with pine, pine resin and damp basement. The taste is the same hop aroma description with the sweet malts balancing it pretty well. As a local brewery that cans I do pick up a sixer probably once per month and I enjoy these on hot Florida summer days. Medium light body, hop funk dank finish. Medium carbonation.

Got this in a trade with Fritz123 as an extra. Thanks again buddy. Pours a deep orange/amberish color. Big 1/2" white head with an earthy woody nose. Not the usual Northwest hop bomb im used to but still pretty decent. Tastes of pine, wood, and just a hint of funk. Pretty good summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very hazy copper and orange-tinted amber coloured body with a rich, thick four centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright citrus and piney hops with a lot of floral, herbal and grapefruity notes as well, with some sugars and hints of metal. Medium-bodied; Chewy malt flavours at first with a good nutty and piney hop flavour that mellows out to a grapefruit flavour and some solid caramel tastes. Aftertaste shows a bit of the nuttiness and a herbal bitterness that lasts for a while. Overall, a bit better than expected, but not an amazing beer - simply a good beer with a very nice, dry, herbal finish that shows the hops well, along with some good dry hopping. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Corner Store (Bait & Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida on 30-December-2013 for US$2.59 sampled at home in Washington on 04-April-2014.
