Honey aroma to this guy. Syrupy. Some ripe fruits. A little sour. Pours orange and clear from draft. Had at bad apple

Malty and citruscy to start. Not very impressive. Smells like vanilla and finishes bitter. Pours gold in color with a white head had at bad apple ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours orangey copper with a white head. Aroma has old beer cellar, some pine and some citrus. Maybe grape and a touch of caramel, eventually. Taste is of sweet malts, tangy pine, some citrus and some earth, with old socks. Medium bodied. Some alcohol involved. Shrug? Nothing "seductive" about this one. Blah. 11.9

Ratman197 (10820) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness and light citrus. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, honey and light fruitiness with a smooth dry finish.

BOSSbrewer (2505) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours copper with two fingers of off white head. Aroma is malty and spicy and sweet. Flavor is malty but also metallic and tinny. Light bodied than I would have expected. Slight bitterness. Finishes with some floral. Interesting, but metallic flavor overwhelms what otherwise might have been a decent beer.

jefcon (1467) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Ambitious and a little sticky from pine and honey flavors, but really rustic and the roughness of the palate is at odds with those sweeter flavors.

obguthr (4419) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Orange peel and caramel nose, rich but muddled. Clear deep amber, thick yellow head. Doughy sweet malt with a grapefruit accent. Medium body, oily, and smooth. Not a lot of complexity, but super tasty. Wonderful balance. Sort of what I would envision IPAs should be.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run, opened 10/31/14. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a medium sized frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, mild stone fruits. The taste is caramel malt, toffee, stone fruits, mild bits of citrus. Medium bodied, decent balance.

I think this beer is a little underrated. I was impressed with this beer from lazy magnolia. It is a very interesting representation of this style. This does not drink like an 8% beer. Hay, brown sugar, and pineapple on the nose. Crisp body with some caramel, green apple, and apricot. Reveals more as I drink it. I would recommend this beer.
