3.78/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Clear, light pale yellow in color. Forms a smallish fluffy white head. Little retention. Light lacing.

S: Aroma is clean, crisp hops. Mostly grapefruit and citrus zest with lesser notes of ginger, pine, and orange. Some pale malts in the mix.

T: Taste is similar. Clean and crisp. Pale malts. Mild sweetness. Grapefruit and grapefruit pith are the dominant hop flavors, though there is a light bit of pine in there as well. Quick finish.

M: On the lighter side. Crisp. Mild bitterness. Good carbonation.

O: I had a growler filled at the same place I picked up this bottle. Unfortunately, I was too lazy to tick the growler because I would have never recognized this as the same beer. The growler was fresh and lively with a wonderful hop aroma whereas the bottle was much more subdued and lackluster. Now, the bottle isn't a bad beer - it'd make a good everyday IPA (depending on the price) - but it also isn't an overly exciting beer either. A well-made middle-of-the-road beer.

Bottled 2/17/14

Meh. Wheeere's the hops!? Apparently, not so much in here. This is an English IPA at best. Mild hop influence with an earthy and grassy thing mostly going on. Kind of boring, really. And by "kind of", I mean really boring. Moving on.

3.59/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip

L: Pours a clear medium golden/amber color. Two fingers of white head... falls rapidly and sticky lacing. Looks good...

S: Citrus and pine. Good hop presence.

T/F: Biscuity malt backbone... has some presence to it. The hop profile is a bit disappointing... not overly bitter or strong. Some citrus notes... pine and mildly resinous. Somewhat tart. Finish is dry and clean.

O: Looks good, smells decent... flavor lets down a bit. A drinkable IPA... nothing offensive, but nothing to bring me back either.

Solid, slightly above average slightly bitter IPA. Taste is grapefruit, tangerine, husk, and light toasted malt. A decent brew, but I have others I prefer.

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!
