Just cracked a can of this open and got hit in the face with tropical fruit, so I simply could not pass up the opportunity to review this. This IPA is delicious with guava, papaya, mango tropical fruits and a perfect balance of bitterness and malt sweetness. This is the best beer from Souther prohibition I have had yet, and I will be buying lots of this while its still fresh. Highly Reccomended!

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!

A-hazy light amber color with a white head that leaves lacing
S-hops and orange peel with a grassy aroma
T-cirtus on the first taste that gives you a hop balance, that goes to a strong hop aftertaste that last til the end
M-very high carbonation that gives you a creamy feel and makes the body seem lighter
O-This beer is a nice blend of hops that gives you a hop kick in the aftertaste, and a creamy light feel. Hope this beer comes to Alabama soon.

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.

Updating review, in anticipation of re-release of this "Cicada Series" beer one day. First had on draft in Feb. 2014 at the excellent Mahogany Bar, Hattiesburg, and later that same day at the brewery tour. Stretched supply until early fall. Gone but not forgotten.

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.

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.
