12oz can. Pour is orange with a fluffy head of tight white bubbles that quickly diminishes to a thin layer. Aroma is hoppy, but alcoholic. The flavor is bitter hops followed by a slightly sticky malt sweetness. The finish is almost honey-ish.

Draft. Pours golden hazy with a big white head. Looks fresh. Big piney nose which translates over to the taste. This is a very fresh and easily drank beer for 9%. Heard that they are going to put this beer on hiatus.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6197) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a dark golden-amber color with a large foamy orange-beige head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was bitter with floral, piney and tropical hops and a bit of sugar. The flavor was tangy, bitter and sweetish with pine, floral hops and a boozy presence. Long finish with a growing boozy bite. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

Ratman197 (12550) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Can poured a hazy amber with a small lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness, pine and light grapefruit zest. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, earthiness, pine and grapefruit zest with a smooth dry bitter lingering grapefruit zest finish.

cheap (5073) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Big foamy viscous pour from a can. Scary fuming head does not yield. Rude mouth coating liquid that ruins your palate. A shock in reality. So nasty it gives me the shivers. Smell is blunt volatile alky hop perfume kick in the olfactory. Simply awful to my lager loven buds. Perfectly on pine tar green grapefruit xxx rototilling rinds style. YOWZER!

lownote (456) - USA - AUG 26, 2015
On nitro so the aroma is pretty low. Hoppy. Pours copper with a nice rich thick white head. Taste is pretty bitter but not awful. Some sweetness. Not much hop flavor. Thin bodied. Just a bummer.

jsmanigold (127) - Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2015
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.

RRistow12 (585) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2015
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
