2.85/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

On tap at the brewery. Served in a taster.

Appearance - Clear orange body. Nice white head. Good retention. Nice lacing.

Smell - Mild citrus and pine hop. Diacetyl? Might be.

Taste - Still some diacetyl here, but less. Mild citrus hop. Grainy malt smoothed out by the buttery flavor. Eh.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Diacetyl kills this. Maybe it's a bad batch.

Serving type: on-tap

First had: on tap at Coffee District, Delray Beach, FL

Slightly hazy, amber pour with a small white head that receded to a wispy layer, leaving a few spots of lacing on the glass. Smell was a bit funky, and not in a saison way, like something was off here; thin and malty, soapy, distant leafy hops. This translated into the taste, unfortunately. It wasn't completely undrinkable, but this was not a very well-done IPA overall. Sweet thinned-out malts, light fruits, dishwater, leafy hops that really didn't provide a freshness or crispness that, in my opinion, makes a good IPA. Light-medium body, and just not very drinkable. Fortunately, this was a taster, because, hmm...

I had this on-tap while we were in Key West. Served in a standard pint glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy amber color with a finger of off white head that fades to a layer on top of the pour and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: Some sweet malt with a citrus peel/soapy hop note. I'm getting some warmth from the alcohol as well.

Taste: Soapy hops dominate the flavor with a citrus peel bitterness. Mild fruity notes with a touch of sweet malt and a bunch of hop bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with very foamy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: It didn't feel like there was much artistry going on in this beer. The bitterness was super aggressive, but nothing was subtle. The alcohol stuck out a bit too much as well.

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.

On draft at Due South for their Grand Opening. Nice hoppy presence, both in the aroma and flavor. Slight malt on the back end with a nice biter finish. Was impressed with this one. Good balance between the hops and malts. Very sessionable and easy to drink on a hot Florida day.

Bought a six pack of cans at the brewery.

citrus notes with good golden color

IBU is probably around 60

light mouthfeel

if you want to try your first IPA this would be a good starting point

IPA lovers: this is a very basic IPA. good to try once but you probably don't need more than one

Serving type: can

Category 3 IPA pours a golden color with a white head from a brown one gallon growler. The aroma is quite hoppy, mostly citrus and pine notes. The flavor is the same, pine resin and grapefruit dominate. Decent, but just about the standard issue IPA with nothing to make it stand out above the crowd.

Serving type: growler
