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.

Appearance is a cloudy orange color with a one finger head
Aroma is resin, pine and alcohol.
Taste is a nice balance of malt and hop bitterness. Some pine.
Mouthfeel is pushing full. That's what I love about this beer.
It leaves a beautiful bitter flavor that coats the mouth.
I really like this beer

12 oz can poured into snifter. Pours a hazy darker gold with generous and creamy white head and great retention. Heavy lacing left behind. The smell pretty heavy on malts with caramel evident among grassy and earthy hop profile. The hops have moderate strength. The taste is a bit sweet with heavy malt presence again. The hops have smooth and mild bitterness. The finish is a touch on the sweet side. Mouthfeel is heavy for style and moderately carbonated. Overall, not my favorite IPA. The hops and malts don't strike a great balance and this is just too sweet for the style.
