Southern Prohibition Brewing - Cicada Series IPA (2014), poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a thick hazy slight ruby amber with a sizable foamy head that retains well and leaves an abundance of lacing.

Smell - Bready malt and wet hop citrus hop aroma behind it, somewhat subdued.

Taste - Malt body isn't sweet but definitely bready here. The hops have some pine but there are off flavors here that I can't figure out.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with low-medium carbonation. Rests a weird bready with a dash of pine. Meh drinkability. Not feeling this.

Overall - Can't really wrap my head around this one but I don't get it, not my jam whatsoever.

Southern Prohibition 2014 IPA has a medium-to-thick, cream-colored head, a hazy, orange-gold appearance, and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of piney hop resin and a little metallic. Taste is of sweet, bready malt, noticeable piney bitterness, and a background metal. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Southern Prohibition 2014 IPA finishes semi-dry, slightly boozy, and decently refreshing (at 7:50 am). Overall, it is worth checking out, but it is not so terrific.

Orange-ish lovely color. Ready to be drank. Aroma gives that big hop head in your face. Swirl and smell. It smells like an IPA should. And it tastes like one too. Very nice balance with a tiny slam of hops in your face. It's tasty and it feels the mouth with hop flavor but not over the top. This is a very good IPA.

Poured into a snifter

A: A rusty copper color with tan head that rose to about a finger and slowly thinned out. Foamy lacing.

S: Grapefruit pops in with other subtle fruits. Piney hops. A touch of bready malts.

T: A terrific hop/malt balance that keeps the bitterness in check. More bitter on the finish. Fruity, featuring grapefruit and mango. Smooth, sweet, sessionable.

M: Medium with medium, frothy carbonation.

O: I had been hesitant to try this one because I feared a hop override. But the balance is really terrific . A fresh, smooth offering from SouPro; one I'll have again on tap. A great summer beer. The tallboy is great for sharing.

On tap at Keg & Barrel

Pours a silky golden color with nice head

Smells fresh. Hops and fruits.

Taste really hits the spot. Aggressive with hops and caramel malty sticky fruits to provide a perfect mouthfeel for an IPA.

I believe this to be the best beer MS has produced to date.
Not sure if they will change it up annually or not. But this one will hit the spot when I'm craving a local IPA down South!

SoPro did real good on this one!

On-tap at Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Served in a nonic pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a two finger whitish head that fades to nice touches of lace.

S: Piney hops, grapefruit and other citrus fruit, orange and some grass. Not overpowering but pleasant aroma.

T: Citrus sweetness with orange, grapefruit and lemon to start. Earthy tones mesh well bringing pine and grass to the palate and a solid overall balance.

M: Medium bodied with mild bitterness and moderate carbonation. Drinks very easily with a nice creamy finish.

O: A real solid offering from Mississippi and I will definitely pick up a four pack of these tall boy cans. A very easy drinking and enjoyable American IPA.
