Nice imperial. Not the best I've had (Green Flash maybe), and far from the worst (no names). It is certainly a beast of a beer. It might not be atop the imperial food chain, but it is a legit contender.

Smells buttery with a bit of spice and mango. Flavor is dry with diacetyl and citrus rind hops. Okay but needs some work.

This was the first beer That convinced me that I love hops.
Look: golden murky honey, beautiful foamy head that leaves decent lacing. The appearance of this beer is where it really shines.

Aroma: Spicy rye bread, a bit of citrus and maybe a tad of pineapple.

Taste: Like your driest wine up front, leading into that spicy bread that I smelled earlier. Hops and rye kind of fight it out on my tongue and I'm really not sure who wins the fight.

mouthfeel: back to the wine bit, like a very dry medium bodied wine.

I fell in love with this beer the first time I tried it. It was what brought me to love craft beer. While it's not quite as magical as the first time I tried it, it's still a beer I really enjoy.

Nice double IPA with a earthy/oaky taste and a great hoppy after taste.

Caramel and malts jump out and do not mix with other flavors. Won't be getting this again

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Opaque honey body with a really thick frothy cream colored head. The head holds up well and leaves massive thick sheets of lacing.

Aroma: Spicy, woody (cedar), and slightly tropical. The typical dry rye aroma is present as well.

Taste: Really dry and woody up front with spicy rye notes. There's some nice tropical fruit in this that offers a nice distraction from all of the wood and dry bitterness. Spicy in the finish. A sharp cheddar cheese bitterness in the aftertaste. It doesn't taste like cheese it has the same bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy in body, dry.

Overall: Great flavor all around, one of the best Lazy Magnolia brews I've tried.

This beer presents a nice hops taste. The lacing was disappointing but I suspect the bartender just didn't know how to pour it correctly. He had never heard of Beer Advocate, so my guess is he doesn't know much about beer.

Aroma is strongly hoppy, resin and woody notes with a hint of malt. Pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick pale golden-wheat head. Taste fills the mouth with hoppy resin and woody notes and strong but not ferocious bitterness, and just a hint of sour orange. Bold, if not complex; definitely for only the stout-hearted. Er, IPA-hearted. ;) Smooth, firm, lively texture leaves a strongly hoppy finish that hangs around for a bit. Can you tame this beast?
