Crowd Control is a dry-hopped Imperial IPA showcasing Mosaic hops. A solid malt backbone accompanied with a fruity and sticky hop overlay contain one another for a great balance of aroma and flavor. Drink fresh and don't resist.

On tap at Brickhaus Brewtique in Meridian MS in an aluminum cup.
Bready toasty maltiness with lots of citrus and topical fruits along with bits of earthy herbal. Medium to full body residual sweetness hints of alcohol. Nice sipper.

I know one is an East Coast and one is a West Coast, but to me, this and Lagunitas Super Cluster taste very similar. That is not a bad thing! Crowd Control holds a slight edge, however.

Wow. Surprisingly tasty Imperial IPA from…. Hattiesburg Mississippi! Drunk from a can at The Neon Pig in Tupelo.

Appearance: Pours a relatively clear golden color with a two finger head; strong retention and some clumpy lacing

Smell: Bread and honey malt elements with tropical fruit tones - papaya, mango and blueberry

Taste: Sweeter malt tones, up front, with a honey character; the hops are muted but blueberry is the predominate tone; some papaya, mango and a bit of pithy bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: An older can so I bumped the scores up .25; maybe another time I will get a fresh can but this has lost the hop pop at this stage

Very Smooth for an Imperial. Almost has a sweet ice cycle taste to it at first, then the hops hit you towards the end. Good to drink right after a Devils Harvest from SP.

L-The appliance is pretty typical. Straw colored with a nice healthy head that isn't large but stays for a while.
S-The aroma is fruity and tropical in nature. There's a bit of booze but it isn't very strong. Some nice sweet bready notes in there as well. Not too bad.
T-Fruity and light. I get some strawberry and maybe some apple as well. Overall sweet with a bitter bite at the end. There's a bit of a sour flavor at the end that I don't particularly like.
F-This beer has a creamy and velvety mouthfeel, which follows the flavor well.
O-A very solid NE IPA. I believe it's an imperial IPA so it does have some strong malty sweetness that ties this beer up very well in the end. I'd try it again. I don't believe this is the best thing I've had from Southern Prohibition, but there were some yeast floaters at the bottom so it could have been a bit old. Still very tasty.
