I tasted this side to side with jai alai and I voted it over jai alai. Great Ester flavor with awesome citrus notes.

Having tried this beer several times while vacationing, my thoughts on it were average at best. Had the opportunity to try this one again after quick weekend trip but not sure too what happened because this beer has had an overhaul the likes of you see in South Beach. Ridiculously good! Currently residing in a beer mecca and comparing to what is available in Western Mass, this beer hangs right in there with many of the more common of beers one can find. Pours super hazy, opaqueness similar to an unfiltered Hefe, cloudy, wispy with a solid head and nice lacing throughout. Very nice mouthfeel and nose- super fruity orange, melon, and tart citrus from front to back. Do not let the ratings fool you on this one. Find a fresh draw and dig in. Very solid offering.

Due South Category 3 IPA has a thick, foamy, off-white head, an opaque, brilliant orange appearance, with lots of visible beige chunks roiling about, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is your typical sweet, white bread and citrus hop resins, but with an odd, yet pleasant, waxy smell present, too. Taste is of sweet, white bread, the full 65 IBU, in the grapefruit manner, and yeast. Maybe even mango, here? Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Due South Category 3 IPA finishes puckering, semi-dry, and quite drinkable.

Poured from the can, pretty decent IPA. Hazy color and even smelled a bit hoppy and citrusy. Good hop character but not overwhelming or heavy and quite drinkable. A decent 6.1% ABV also helps this beer in taste and body. Overall this was a good but average IPA.
