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.

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.

Cicada Series IPA (2014), poured into a shaker pint and a second poured into a chimay chalice to try to get my head around some of the under the hop flavor.

A: Almost red. sticky head that hugs the glass all the way down. Slightly hazy.

S: Hops of the citrus and lemony variety. Citra? Malt is present but faint. Grapefruit.

T: What happened?!?! SPRUCE AND GRAPEFRUIT. Did not expect the spruce at all. This would be fantastic if you added more crystal and some chocolate to make a sprucy chocolate porter. I expected this refreshing, albeit thick, IPA and instead got pine sap. Bready pine sap. Low marks... but could be a great starting point for developing an IIPA. Honestly think someone messed up the hop schedule or something... cannot fully grasp the spruce.

M: Thick. Medium to full bodied. Filling as hell. I think a pine forest is being chopped down in my stomach.

O: I love a good IPA or IIPA. This is not the best version I have had... but most certainly isn't the worst. It is better than what I make in my apartment...but that isn''t really saying much. This is not a must try unless you are a beaver. Otherwise... get it in a "make your own sixer."

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.
