South of Eleven pours a hazy golden color with a great full, 2-finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. The smell is juicy with ripe citrus, dank pine as well as hint of melon sweetness and a floral component. Another user here on Beer Advocate likened it to drinking Juicy Fruit gum. Pretty spot on! It’s got a good mouthfeel, smooth on the palette finishing a bit hoppy but dry. It’s a combination of pineapple, orange marmalade, mango and melon. Doesn’t drink as a beer north of 10% ABV.

16oz can dated 11/28/18.

Pours cloudy gold with an inch of white fluff. Decent retention and lacing. Melons with peach and banana in the nose. Medium bodied with a creamy, fluffy mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Pithy, resinous citrus on the palate. Melon -forward with grapefruit and zero malt. Finishes dry with lingering citrus and a firm bitterness.

Thanks to Bpfahl for this 16 oz. can, which arrived as an extra yesterday. I need hops. I drink this.

The pour is what passes for an IPA to kids nowadays; I wonder what some would do if handed an old-school West Coast IPA (besides pour it out, I mean). Opaque mango juice with a big tropical nose, without any particular fruit standing out.

South of Eleven = liquefied Juicy Fruit gum. Matching the aroma, I get mostly mango, with a side salad of orange, lemon, citrus, & way too much candied orange sweetness. A hard knock of bitterness on the finish saves the day. Heavy; that might be the ABV, which is otherwise hidden under the layers of fruit. Certainly easy to chomp.

A solid representation of the style, but ultimately it doesn’t rise beyond many other of its brethren. Good beer.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Yellow Session. Really hazy golden color. Aroma is juicy and floral with ripe fruits, melon and chamomile notes. Taste is bitter and fruity with orchard fruit notes. A good amount of bitterness on the finish.
