look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours to a thick buff head and consistent lacing all the way down. Color is hazy light amber. Aroma is pine sol and biscuit malt. Flavor is a rich blend of malt and hops yet it has a soapy, funky note that detracts a bit. Good bracing bitterness. Mouthfeel medium. Overall not bad but a bit rough in some spots.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: light copper color with little transparency. Good lacing and carbonation with little head.
S: it has some inherent sweetness and yeast scent similar to what you find in Belgium beers
T: something I have found with most south eastern breweries is the impact of the water to the flavor profile. Their IPAs leave you with a muddled hop flavor instead of the piney profiles offered by Stone. Nice balance of light malt and a predominant hop/floral profile
M: medium-heavy mouth with a good amount of carbonation. Leaves an OK after taste that I do not prefer.
O: the label advertising a DIPA with Rye pulled me in to purchase this beer. In the edit doesn't deliver a good hop hit nor rye flavor but rather what I have come to expect from east coast "IPAs": a muddle shadow of their cousins west. The saving grace to this is the healthy balance of sweetness they managed to add to the norm muddled hop profile

3.35/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

A. Copper, amber, gold. Light haze. Fluffy white head, keeps decently well, laces thick silk screen all the way down.

S. Spicy rye, bold malt, slightly grassy and citrusy. Hops don't dominate, but the rye is big,

T. Dominant spicy rye, with a spicy hop bitterness. Hints of grass and citrus, and maybe a bit earthy. Equally as strong (which I wouldnt call intense, but the flavors are fairly big) is the malt backbone - a solid balancing malt quality that hints at munich malts.

M. Crisp carbonation combined with a fairly big bitterness make this a sharp and refreshing 9%er. Medium body is balancing and just slick enough to keep that bitterness lingering nicely.

O. Underwhelming except for the rye and the bitterness. Not complex, itll get the job done, especially if you like balanced IIPAs and rye.

12 oz bottle sent along by Bulbman in the Secret Santa BIF. It was poured into my Duvel tulip.

Timber Beast pours a hazy burnt orange. The slightly off white foam shoots past four fingers in height, actually managing to spill out of this large glass. Head retention is good, but lacing is very spotty aside from a good bit left at the top of the glass. The nose probably has more rye than hops, as the spiciness is immediately noticeable, but it takes a few moments for the grassy citrus aromas to make themselves known. The flavor profile leads off with a light helping of caramel before a potent spicy rye character comes in. The bitterness that follows is attention grabbing, but the grapefruit centric hop close is a little bit wimpy. The mouthfeel is alright, though I'd say it's slightly fulll bodied and under carbonated. Lazy Magnolia's Timber Beast is an enjoyable beer, but it didn't exactly blow me away either.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy brownish orange with a 1.5 finger thick white head. Amazing head retention and really good lacing. Really thick all the way around.

Lots of rye spiciness comes through on the aroma. Kind of reminds me of bread dough. Earth, caramel, and overripe citrus also comes through. Lots of orange and tangerine.

Dark caramel and rye on the flavor. The rye hangs around for a long time and really adds a nice element to this brew. Tons of ripe orange from the hops that approaches a slightly unpleasant acrid bitterness on the back of the tongue. Tons of hope bitterness that really comes close to being too much. This extremely strong bitterness combined with a very sweet and sticky mouthfeel severely limits drinkability.

Overall, a good effort by Lazy Magnolia on their first foray into high gravity brewing. This beer comes close but just seems to miss the mark. Toning down the bitterness and cleaning up the mouthfeel a little would do wonders.
