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
