2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
