Appears a slightly hazed orange hue with a beige light khaki head, sticks around for quite awhile leaves behind some appetizing looking lacing (is that three –ing endings in a row, whoops).

Aroma dank, earthy pelletized hops citrus rind and some other kick ass hops’pitality in a glass. Really dank borderling cat pee and crushed aspirin I know there were some Amarillo hops hurt in the making of this beer

Flavor citrus bitterness rushes the palate, lingering dank Mary Jane notes work just fine with some earthy herbaceous bitterness all day. Minimal biscuit malts just barely shine their light through the aggressive hops, if any complaints are noted it’s the fact that this lacks cohesion between the malt and hops. Yet those folks down South have been craving those hops for quite some time, let’s give the people what they want.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied oily slick hops lubricate the palate quite nicely, I can’t complain great carbonation this beer was brewed by some people with some know how…I’ve been searching for some Lazy Magnolia brews for quite some time.

Overall, quite enjoyable to prove that hoppy beers don’t have to be drank within minutes after bottling try this beer…bottled on 2/17/14 showing absolutely no signs of stale hops whatsoever…if I would have noticed the date on the neck I wouldn’t have grabbed it at a whopping $1.50 per single bottle to go!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 02/11/14

Pours an effervescent honey/amber with 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Nice head retention & pretty good lacing

S: Grassy, bready, oranges

T: Grassyness, orange peel, grapefruit & a bit of pine up front, just a touch of aspirin too. Orange peel, a whisper of caramel & breadyness as this warms, along with slight aspirin bitterness. Crisp finish, dry with grapefruit & orange peel bitterness

MF: Light/medium bodied, lively carbonation, alright balance

Fairly drinkable, not a great IPA, but fairly serviceable. Would buy it again if A-list options weren't on hand...

Pours to a one inch frothy head that fall sto a 3/8 inch permanent head that erratically laces the glass. Color is a slightly hazy golden amber. Aroma delivers on the promise of grapefruit, tropical fruits and piney notes coming from the hops in their hops-forward brew. Flavor is a blast of luscious hop flavors and restrained bitterness with a very basic malt backdrop. Mouthfeel is light but a bit astringent. Overall this is a very good quaff and a good surprise.

The coppery tone of this IPA was a bit murky with loads of carbonation teeming through. The head was a thick froth of marangue like foam.

The aroma is earthy, herbal, very spicy with a leafy natural tone. Not a lot of citrus but maybe a touch of lemon can be discerned.

The flavor is simply too herbal for me. I get a onion, chive, oregano and thyme out of the hops with some malt but very little. This herbal hop prominence is not my style.

This is a touch bitter and astringent but nothing detracting and it drinks like water.

I must admit that there was a lot of hop flavor but those hop flavors were not the style I like or what my palate accepts.
