Very good double IPA from Souther Star. Aromas of wet hay, piney hops, must. Sweet smell as well. Mouth feel is smooth and just bubbly enough. Tastes of molasses, and fresh hops. Very bitter, but balanced. Finish is clean, with lingering bitter. Really good.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear orange with a nice white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is grapefruit, pine, grass, and some caramel malt. A hop bomb for sure.

12 oz can into a pint glass. Thanks for this one gtermi! A - Pours a dark and hazy amber color with floating bits of hops and yeast. Two finger creamy white head with soapy and sticky lacing and retention. I’m a sucker for unfiltered IPA’s! S - Caramel malts, piney hops, bitter grapefruit, and some dank resin. T - Nice blend of caramel malts and dank hops. Light grapefruit and pine. Bitterness is low but pleasant. A bit malt forward but rather tasty. Mouth feel is creamy and slick. I’m actually a bit surprised by the 10% abv, its not even noticeable. O - Seeing as the first review is from mid-August I’d say this one has a bit of age on it. Even in its current state its drinking really well. Plenty of caramel malt and grapefruit/dank hops. Alcohol extremely in check. Really nice.

Have only had... maybe 28 of these, so not sure that that 5.25 gallons is a good enough serving sample. Best or favorite IIPA? Not exactly, but damn decent. Perhaps a tad abrasive, but maybe just aggressive and I sure will be sad when these disappear and notice that I buy at least one 4pk if not more every time I see one whether my fridge is crammed with beer or not.

3sheets2wind (78) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 Pliny-esque. This iipa is resinous with a piney hop presence. Not much citrus but a nice mouthfeel, nice orange brown color, thick lacing and clean aftertaste. Strong beer from an up-and-coming brewer

Mora2000 (5853) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2012
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has some big double IPA notes, with a lot of resinous pine and orange citrus notes. I also get a hint of biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same. The caramel malt keeps the bitterness from being too high, but what really comes through are some dank, resinous pine and orange citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Good strong IPA. Not sure of the alcohol, but since there was none of the burn, whatever was there was hidden. I love double IPAs and had two of these.

(12oz can)Received from Hopper thanks man. First from Southern Star and very impressed. Orange body with dense head that last. Aroma spruce, pine. Taste resinous pine, grapefruit that has a slight caramel note. Bitterness sits on palate awaiting another revisit. Fine IIPA.

(12oz can) Pours a clear orange body with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, dank, and pine resin. Flavor of earth, grass, dank, citrus, and caramel with a dry, bitter finish.
