Southern Hops’pitalitySouthern Hops’pitality
Notes: Southern Hops’pitality is Lazy Magnolia’s offering of delicious cheer to all of our fans. We pride ourselves on our porch-sippin’ and backyard grillin’ with our beloved kinfolk, and this traditional IPA offers the perfect libation to add to the Southern hospitality and charm that we hold so dear. Our session IPA has a bold citrus burst on the front end with hints of tropical fruits, such as grapefruit, orange, and mango in the finish. Lazy Magnolia’s brewers use a unique hop blend for an exciting dry-hopped aroma, and with a light straw color and crisp, smooth finish on the palate, this 6% ABV, 60 IBU IPA will help you extend some “Southern Hops’pitality” to your loved ones. From our porch to yours, Cheers Y’all!

From the bottle, it pours a hazy light amber with a large, thick head. In the nose, it has some light citrus. In the mouth, it is a lightly bitter in the mouth - almost a pale ale bitterness.

Juicy, hoppy, floral, slight bitter on the finish. But super suddsy. Almost soap like. Takes away from the beer overall.

Wouldn't revisit this one again.

This IPA is just not that good. It lags way behind excellent IPA's like Stone and Sculpin selections. I left behind most of a six pack at my in-laws.

Pours a hazy golden color. One inch head of a white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of floral hops, citrus hops, slight citrus, slight sweet malt, hint of piney hops, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with a high carbonation level. There is a pleasant lack of bitterness. Tastes of floral hops, citrus hops, slight citrus, slight sweet malt, hint of piney hops, slight grass, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, too carbonated, but bitterness if well blended, and good complexity.

Bright, light amber body; huge sculpted head of foam; some rings of speckled foam layer the inside of the glass. Zesty, peppery aroma; some heavy malt sweetness. Little malt flavor at first sip, but a fruity and spicy hop presence develops fairly rapidly; good hop bitterness build up. Medium body; rather slick and watery at first yet there is some fiery qualities from the hops.

A decent IPA that, at first, tastes a bit flat and watery, yet the hops rise to the occasion to save this beer. They bring a mildly spicy quality to the beer, some bite and punch although the flatness of the beer diminishes these qualities a tad. Quite drinkable...

Beyond IPA burn out these days for me but this one is not bad, but that simply puts it right up there with a boat load of others.

This beer pours a bright amber red color with a two finger, fluffy bright white head. Retention is moderate for they style and there are some whispy spots of lacing left on the glass.

Smell is pine, earthiness and citrus hops along with some sweet caramel and bready malts. When the beer is agitated the fruity flavors of grapefruit pith, tangerine and mango really come to forefront.

Taste is the same, but the malts are a bit more present. The only hint of the fruity flavors comes right at the beginning because first the sweet malts come in and then there is a solid bitterness that comes through mid sip and really wipes out all the other flavors.

Feel is light and smooth, but lacking carbonation. There is a bit of stickiness on the finish from the hops.

Overall this beer is decent. A solid example of the West Coast IPA, but it is a bit too malty for my liking, especially for such a low abv beer.

Nice amber color with quickly dissipating head. Smell is a nice blend of citrus and hops. Has a nice flavor to start but finishes with a piney bite that lingers a bit too long....OK, but I prefer others like Dogfish...

Three finger head start which leaves three rings of lace and spots thereafter. The liquid is amber with the lightest of hazes.

The smell is a nice combination of caramel malts and floral hops. There's also a touch of molasses sweetness to the nose.

The flavor is only slightly drier than the smell. The hop is more pronounced as well with a black pepper bite. The body is neutral as is the carbonation. The overall effect is uncomplicated and nondescript. Yet, there are no issues or problems to note.

Pours a mildly hazy reddish amber color with a generous, persistent head.
Smell is a nice blend of citrus and pineapple. Not too aggressive.
Medium hop flavor. Citrus and pine with a hint of orange.
Not overly hopped.

Attractive color of lighter hazy gold with white cap.

Scent of primarily citrus (grapefruit) hops with supporting notes of tropical (mango) fruits. The hops are strong enough to override any malt presence.

Taste is a hop circus with several acts going on at the same time. That's to say I'm getting distinct rather than integrated hop flavors. The tastes are actually pretty decent but it's like three horses trying to pull the wagon in different directions.

Medium texture with balanced carbonation.

Overall I can see where they were going with this but the game plan is flawed. They ran the ball all over the field without scoring.
