Southern Star Valkyrie has a very thick, beige head, a murky, gold-orange appearance, noticeable gray floaties, and significant lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of fruity, rather floral, hop-oily bread, and the flavor is of sweet, bready barley malt and super-bitter hop oil. This really does live up to its billing of 100 IBUs. However, as it warms, and one drinks it down, it does mellow out and becomes a very chill drinking experience. The mouthfeel is heavy and syrupy, and Southern Star Valkyrie finishes dry, rich, quite sweet, and decently sip-able. The alcohol really does not show itself with this one. Check it out- it’s outstanding!

I've now had the bottles and currently a growler from Whole Foods Market.
L - Amber orange color - a bit hazy with pale off white (yellow shifted) foam. The bottled beer looked clearer. I might be getting an early tap after some settling.
S - Big hoppy citrus all the way. Mouth watering aroma
T - Incredible grapefruit hops. Even pithy. Very bitter with some astringency but not in a bad way. This is the most grapefruit hops flavor I have had. This is why I'm rating it. Excellent. Superlatives all around.
M - Mouthfeel is quite light. It is a nice departure from some of the huge IIPAs I have had lately. This beer feels like a single IPA, Refreshing.
O - Excellent beer. I will drink all I can while fresh. I have heard that some have had infected or oxidized Valkyrie. I highly suggest they sample around. This is a great beer.

Apparently, this was released yesterday. 32 ounce growler from Growler's.
Dark coppery amber color, clear, beige finger of head plenty lace. Aroma is citrusy, but equally malty with caramel and sweet bread. Taste has a high bitterness, juicy citrus and tropical fruits, subtle sweet malts, pine resin finish, hidden ABV. Creamy feel, full bodied, slick. Overall, quite delicious!
