I tried this beer off the tapper at the Old Key Lime House in Lake Worth, FLO-RIDA. It poured a clear copper color with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had bitter and floral hop notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bitter citrus hop presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body and had good carbonation. Overall it is a solid beer.

A lighter IPA than some. Not for the hophead but refreshing and good for a hot day.

On-tap at Marriott Delray Beach, Delray Beach, FL

A: The beer is clear orange amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Light aromas of piney hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of piney hops along with notes of caramel malts. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The taste of this beer has a nice mixture of malts and hops. It starts tasting a little like a cream ale once it starts warming up.

Serving type: on-tap

Presentation: 12 oz. can, served in a pint glass.

Look: It develops a strong, one and a half finger head. It's a crisp, clear gold color and leaves some good bubbly lacing.

Smell: Strong pine resin hop scent up front with beautiful citrus notes in the background. Very aromatic but not overwhelmingly so.

Taste: It has a strong fruity, citrus character reminiscent of the nose but without the strong pine in it. It has a very peculiar sweet character and not that much bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and refreshing, it goes down smooth. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: A very characteristic sweet and fruity taste sets this one apart from you typical bitter IPA. The fact that it looks great and is easy to drink just rounds out the package nicely. A very nice beer by Due South.

Hazy golden color with a long lasting rich foamy head. Strong citrus smell with malt background. Both citrus and some pine hop notes with a pronounced malt finish. Excellent carbonation level with a very smooth mouthfeel. Overall a very good IPA worth giving a try.

Thanks to awoek305 for sending this one as an extra in our trade! Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 12 oz. can into an El Catador teku glass.

A: Mildly hazy gold, lots of lively visible carbonation, and a two finger white head with good retention. This is pretty for sure.

S: Resin and citrus hops, and light biscuit malts. More subtle notes of melon and flowery hops. Not a big aroma, and fairly simplistic – though remains appealing.

T: Resinous pine, and sweet biscuit malts that contribute a fair amount of sweetness without resorting to caramel or toffee flavors. There's also substantial melon hop flavors – more so than the nose suggested. Bitter grapefruit rind with some spicy and tropical fruits as well. Moderately bitter in the hang – grapefruit and melon.

M: Medium body, low alcohol presence. The carbonation sensation is a little on the low side of average.

O: This grew on me after the first few sips. It’s a pretty solid shelf IPA. Nothing I’d seek out or trade for specifically, but it was an awesome extra and certainly you could do worse if you were at a bar and this was on. There are IPAs/APAs sitting on the shelf around here that I’d prefer personally. But this is not bad at all.

12 ounce cans bought in Orlando, FL. Nice piney aroma and taste. This is my kind of IPA. Nicely balanced. I really enjoyed this and would buy again.

Light unfiltered copper look. Smell is very light. Probably too light. Citrus primarily. Mouthfeel is a malt cream. Hard to pin down but bitter hops all the way to the end in the taste. Good but not exceptional.

Light copper color with an inch of creamy tan. Moderate lacing. Citrus aroma dominates, but seems subdued. The taste is very citrus upfront with orange peel and grapefruit. The hop flavor lingers in the aftertaste. Not much malt is detectable. There's a gentle hop burn in the otherwise dry and lightly sticky mouth.

Can dated 3/30/16 poured nearly opaque into a pint glass with tons of bubble streams and pieces of floating yeast throughout. Thick off white marshmallow head that didn't recede but strangely left no lacing. Smells very malty and earthy. Maybe it's turned already being nearly three months in the can. Taste is earthy grassy and slightly bitter which leads me to believe it's age is affecting it. Mouthfeel is light and a little too watery. Not something I would purchase again.
