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

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.

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.
