Pours a deep golden color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is honeyed malt and citrus with a touch of earth and pine. Palate follows with a round slightly stale malt profile with hints of grass, citrus and a lingering moderate bitterness.

12 ounce can from Secret Santa. Thanks! Opened 8/1/14. Pours a very hazy orange color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of lemon and lime peel, zest, pith, citrus, pale malt and an herbal note. The taste is dry pithy citrus, pale malt, a bit of spice. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Solid.

Citrus nose with sweetness prevailing. Flavor is a train wreck but in a good way. Sweet malts up front then a violent change to the bitterness of the hops. Medium lingering finish.

Can--cloudy, orange color beer with a thick, white head. Reminded me of Rickie Fowler’s outfit at the PGA Championship, which I was watching while drinking the beer. Citrus, pine and some grapefruit in the aroma. Taste of citrus and pine with some spiciness on the finish. Solid. Total wine.

12oz can. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a foamy off-white head. Mostly citrusy and fruity aroma. Bitter flavor, mostly citrusy but also some spiciness and hints of rye. Medium bodied with long lingering bitter finish. Harshly bitter on the palate in a way that hop heads will love. I enjoyed this.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Due South Category 3 IPA is solid and pairs with food well. Not as much aroma as one would hope from an IPA, but pleasant just the same. Amber pour with a frothy head. Taste is balanced with mostly citrus notes and a finish that doesn’t bitter away the flavor. Category 3 won’t blow you away, but is nice just the same.

12 oz. can from Fritz123- thanks again, Mason! Pours a hazy deep gold with a lot of yeast floaters and a big frothy eggshell white head. Some sticky lace prevails. Aroma of orange peel, straw, grass, florals, pale malts, and a bit of soap. Pretty clean and fresh. Flavor of tea, lemon, tangerine, pale malts, straw, grass, and florals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean, somewhat mineral mouthfeel with minor bitterness. Pretty good IPA.

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