very hoppy but balanced with alcohol.floral taste and aroma. Strong smell of ruby red grapefruit and carmely after tones.clean finish and fine lacing. very well balanced. This beer is definitely worth a try and should be poured into a glass to get the flavour profile.

I’ve had this on tap and from the bottle. Both were incredibly fresh offerings (the draft was on July 1st, 2012 - the first day it was legal).

From the bottle there is a huge head that’s retained for some time. Nice coppery color. Citrus notes in the aroma and flavor. It has a very full feel in the mouth and is nice and spicy.

The alcohol is completely masked in this beer which can be problematic because it is very easy to drink. Easily one of the best IPAs I've had and a great first "high gravity" brew for Lazy Mag and the state of Mississippi.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours slightly hazy copper with a tall, off-white head. There are plentiful visible tiny bubbles in the beer. There is some lacing left on the side of the glass during consumption. There are bright citrus and pine hop aromas as well as some of the rye spiciness. The alcohol isn't present in the aroma at all. The hops come through in the front while the rye is there in the back end, making a nice marriage of rye spiciness and hop bitterness. The citrus and pine hops are balanced by the bready malts in this beer. The alcohol is well-hidden in the flavor. The body is medium with a smooth mouthfeel. It doesn't come across like a big beer at all in the taste or feel, so approach this highly drinkable DIPA with caution and enjoy. This is an excellent beer.

4.61/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Pours a super hazy dark orange color with almost zero transparency. 1 finger, creamy head that quickly dissipates into nothing. Good lacing while the head is there.

Smell: Big sweet grapefruit, pineapple and sour rye. Lemon rind, pine resin and a touch of alcohol. Huge aromas. Very inviting.

Taste: Sweet grapefruit immediately followed by big pine resin. Excellent balance between the two huge flavors. Just a touch of alcohol in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Creamy with crisp carbonation. Nice oily finish with pine bitterness and citrus sweetness lingering.

Overall: This was a great IPA! Big aromas and flavors. Its not as complex as some I've had, but it is very well balanced and has HUGE flavor and aromas. The 9% ABV is almost completely hidden. I would definitely have this again.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass

A: Poured a dark amber with two fingers of light fluffy head that hung around awhile

S: Definite pine and resin aromas

T: This is like Fall in my mouth. I love that the Rye spice sneaks up on you. The hops are there, but aren't over powering. A great balanced beer.

MF: A little over carbonated, but this doesn't take away from the beer

O: Love this Double RyePA, very underrated in my opinion

Awesome beer. Great citrus smell. Flavor is fresh citrus, caramel, pine, and light rye. One of the better ipas I have had in a while. Will look to pick this one up again.
