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.

12 oz can was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy copper color with decent clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Awesome lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, herbal, grassy, caramel, toasted,

Taste:

Mouthfeel: Smooth, quite the sipper, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, and light tingly bitterness.

Overall: Ugh, this was my last Due South can of beer. A road trip back to FL might be in the near future.

Deep golden hued brew, tan head, great lacing. Loads of citrus notes in aromas. Hefty malt base leads into herbal dry hoppy finish.
