look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

This beer blew me away. I have had hits n misses from Southern Star which is only 20 minutes from me. The aroma is combo of piney, grapefruit reminiscent of west coast dipas.

Malt backbone is good and mouthfeel has some stickiness to it, now i am thinking poor man's pliny. color is a deep copper w/a nice bit of head retention and lacing down my duvel glass. finishes well not too sweet and pretty dangerous drinkability for a 10%.

i am proud to say a texas craft beer has a dipa in a can that rivals a bunch of stuff from CO & CA. Well done Southern Star!

Serving type: can

4.48/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color capped by a nicely formed head; very nice retention and several shards of lace are left behind

Smell: Floral, piney and citrusy - the epitome of a great DIPA aroma

Taste: This is a DIPA with a maximum dose of hops and just the right amount of malt balance as it starts out laying a hint of caramel and then dashing forward into the realm of the hops; the hops present as piney and citrusy and build from there; loads of grapefruit, along with some pineapple

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; slightly boozy

Overall: This is a great DIPA to my way of thinking (or tasting) - love that the malts are way in the background and the vast majority of the flavor comes from the hops; not sticky at all like many other DIPAs - glad I was in Texas when it hit the shelves

Serving type: can
