The brewers of New South twist tradition a bit with this uncommon ale. With its pleasant bitterness, sturdy alcohol content and intense hop aromas. This unfiltered copper colored ale is everything an I PA should be. With its dense head and creamy smoothness it is quite unlike any taste you’ve ever experienced.

bubbleflubber (2069) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2012
On tap at T-Bonz Gill & Grill at Myrtle Beach. Pours amber clear into the glass, with a foamy puckered head that leaves fluffy lacing. The nose is earthy. Flavors are of hops and biscuit flour with an underbalanced nondeScript malt. The finish is hoppy, with a light and zesty carbonated mouthfeel. Goes down well for the summer, but not a top-tier offering.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Sample draft at 2012 Columbia World Beer Festival. Copper color with medium head. Hops but also some musty malt with a little kick to it. Didn’t really like the flavor combination. Mediocre.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Tap flight. Light amber color with a very dense white head that wont budge. Flowery hop nose. Taste is similar with a little bit of a bitter bite. Extremely thin, though. Almost no mid flavor or presence on the palate. Looks good but that’s about it.

jb (2635) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Light brown, hazy, towards copper. Creamy white head. Not much of a nose, hint of cooking wort. Same in palate to start, then fruity. Malty sour, a bit of hoppiness at end. Different but not great.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Draft at Liberty Taproom and Grill - Poured a pretty orange-amber in color with a medium off white head that produced some minor lacing on the glass. Aroma is of both floral and citrus hops. Flavor is medium hoppy with some maltiness in the background. Finish is lingering and medium bitter. A decent IPA...

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Pint at TBonz, on nitro. Pours copper with a nice cascade of bubbles and a tight, creamy nitro head. The aroma is grapefruit, some sawn lumber, and a touch of earthiness. The flavor is mild grapefruity hops, some honey and raisin sweetness. A woody bitterness comes across in the finish. I was a little worried about this, as I like my IPAs bubbly, but the nitro worked out better than I expected. Smooth and actually tasty.

Pint at Liberty in Mt. Pleasant. Nitrogen IPA. What a terrible idea, though New South has somehow managed to pull it off well enough, considering. It is really weird to see a beer this color come out of the nitro tap and cascade down into an evenly shaped body with a creamy head. It’s like an orange Guinness. I can still get some hops in the modest aroma with some grass and wood. This is an expectedly smooth and inoffensive beer but not as bland as I feared. A bit of bite comes out here and there. Definitely a very different idea and makes for an alright session.

Nickls (2064) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2010
(Old BA rate - nitro tap) Light orangey, clear color; poured with a generous finger of pure white frothy cap of a head. Citrus-like hop aromas; hint of minerals; lightish malts. Lightly hoppy, even for the style it’s pretty tame; citric hop nature; rather middle of the road. Creamy and with soft carbonation (courtesy of the nitro tap), lightish and pleasing enough. Really a fairly bland IPA, and I wonder if this would have done better without the nitro.
