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.

Got two 12oz cans in a trade. Pours a hazy golden color. Lots of sediment. Smell is loads of citrus. A little herbal. Some pineapple too. Taste is a lot of orange and grapefruit. A good malt backbone to balance things out too. I get some pineapple and mango in the finish. Bitterness isn't too harsh. Mouthfeel seems about right, maybe a little sticky. Overall this is a great DIPA. I'm surprised this has flown under the radar for so long. This is the second offering I've had from Due South and enjoyed them both. I suppose they don't get as much recognition because of Cigar City. I'd like to see this brewery grow and distribute more widely.
