Notes/Commercial Description:
The most powerful IPA in the Due South Category series, the Cat 5 is big on hops and big on flavor. Clocking in at 8.5% ABV and 96 IBU’s, the first bands of malts will make way for the surge of hops on the palate. Designed for the true hophead, this is not a beer for the faint of heart.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Leftovers. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Deep orange. Hazy. Nice white head and great lacing. Retains very well.

Smell - Pine and pithy grapefruit hop aroma. Musty with some caramel sweetness.

Taste - Brighter citrus just for a moment. Orange becomes grapefruit which becomes piney and grassy. Builds into a musty bitterness, eventually overpowering a slightly sweet malt backbone.

Mouthfeel - Quite bitter. Medium heavy body. Weird malt flavor at the very end.

Overall - Pretty good hop flavor, but a rough finish.
