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.

On tap at Hay Merchant. Pours amber. Nose is full of pine and spruce. One sip is all it takes. This is a surprisingly excellent offering from Southern Star. Full of pine, grapefruit, resin, and some caramel malt, but not too much. Clean and pure all the way to the long bitter finish. Nothing crazy or weird going on here -- just a solid, complete, pure IIPA that in fact reminds me of the West Coast standard, Pliny the Elder. Yep, itís that good, and itís made in Texas.

A nice bright orange pour with a bit of haze and a big white head. Strong citrus and tropical fruit hop aroma up front. A bit of caramel and sugar sweetness to it. Light pine and bread, too. The flavor has a bit of an herbal hop note along with the citrus and tropical fruit notes. Some sweet caramel, a bit of toasted bread, and a light pine bitterness on the finish. Maybe a hint of alcohol as it warms.

Extra from Errl-thanks, Chris! Huge floral hop nose...just smells amazing. Thick head that fades to a nice ring with heavy lacing. Pretty amber color, medium body. Full on hop bomb. Bitter finish. Could use more malt to balance. Good for what it is.

Nice orange amber in the glass. Very soft soapy floral "Irish Spring" type aroma. Bitter citrus and medicine up front that mellows into a sweet citrusy flavor profile. Overall, very tasty. Thanks to BarZigKin for the hook up!
