Due South Category 3 IPA has a thick, foamy, off-white head, an opaque, brilliant orange appearance, with lots of visible beige chunks roiling about, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is your typical sweet, white bread and citrus hop resins, but with an odd, yet pleasant, waxy smell present, too. Taste is of sweet, white bread, the full 65 IBU, in the grapefruit manner, and yeast. Maybe even mango, here? Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Due South Category 3 IPA finishes puckering, semi-dry, and quite drinkable.

Poured from the can, pretty decent IPA. Hazy color and even smelled a bit hoppy and citrusy. Good hop character but not overwhelming or heavy and quite drinkable. A decent 6.1% ABV also helps this beer in taste and body. Overall this was a good beer but a bit avarage in comparison to all the other IPAs. Still enjoyed it and would probably pick up another six pack in the future.

From tap to taster at Due South tasting room on 6/2/12
*From notes

A: Clean 24k amber. A 1.25 finger head, minimal lacing and a small collar top the glass.

S: Pine, a touch of fresh juice, sticky resin and a bit of charred malt.

T: Dry, with plenty of biting, bitter hops. As it moves back, I get some juiciness and fruit. Really pleasant.

M: Dense. It's a bit thicker and rich then I originally expected for a south Florida beer.

O: Pretty well done, Due South. I'd like to see a bit more tropical, juiciness to this, as it was 98 degrees (see what I did there?) outside when I quaffed this. And when it's that hot, gimme fruit, not pine and resin. But it's a minor squabble, as this IPA is tasty none the less. Can't wait to tick their Category 4 DIPA.
