Pours with a hazy gold color and medium white head and a slightly sweet fruity aroma. It has a sticky yet oily mouth feel. Malty sweet flavor with a little pine bitterness at the end. The hops and malt are well balanced. This is my favorite brew by Southern Star.

Tasted from can. Pours a hazy amber gold with thick white head. Aroma is fairly sweet. Caramel, toffee, biscuits and some pine. Taste is not very bitter. A little too much on the malty sweet side. Sticky mouthfeel. Flavors of pine, earthy notes, caramel, toffee, biscuit and a little tropical fruit. Overall an average double IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drjay44 (2969) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2015
12 oz. can. Pours a thick, gradually diminishing. ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, amber (SRM 13) body....nose is light pine, slight resin, hints of pineapple from the hops, cereal, hints of toffee/caramel from the malts, balance to the hops......taste is slightly sweet with floral notes, light pine, resin, hints of pineapple, tropical fruits (peach, mango) moderate cereal, finishing with a lingering moderate hop bitterness......mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds creaminess. This is a pleasant and quite typical I/DIPA. It is nicely balanced, slightly sweet, with hops mostly dominant in both aroma and flavor. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Tmoney99 (11915) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2015
Can. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer and exceeded my expectations.

12 oz. can from Dutch’s. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had resin and citrus hops, caramel malt, toasted bread, not overly bitter, as I continue drinking more tropical notes sneak in, sweeter, this could use more bittering hops IMO, decent.

DrSilverworm (8566) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2015
12oz can, from Dutch’s. Clear orange amber color, with a bigger off-white head. Some caramel malt. Some tropical fruity hop aroma. Pine. Moderate-plus sweet taste. Light to moderate bitter. Kind of resiny. Some bubblegum. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick texture. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Solid DIPA. Maltier, but enjoyable. Satisfyingly resiny and tropicaly hoppy finish.

burg326 (4668) - Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
Poured an orange color from the can with aromas of tropical fruit, hops, light pine and some malt. Flavors are big citrus and pine with some decent hops thrown in. Decent but nothing to go out of the way for.

Drake (10518) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting. Hazy orange, thin fizzy off-white head. Good retention. Aroma of syrupy, goopy tropical fruits, zesty citrus. The taste is bitter citrus, piney and tropical hops, pale malts. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness, a bit astringent.
