3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Hazy orange pour, with a medium, beige head. The aroma is heavy resin and floral hops, with some butterscotch and wet hay. The flavor is very bitter, with little to no malt backbone. Heavy body, sticky, and very astringent. Low carbonation. Overall, this is a strong and hoppy, but fairly unpleasant beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber color with beige head. Aroma has woody hop notes, sweet orange, red grapefruit and some underlying caramel malt. Taste starts with the sweet citrus fruits backed up by the malt, continues with earthy hops and finishes with medium grapefruit bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall it’s really easy drinking DIPA with the alcohol hidden very well and very balanced taste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2016 Draft from Half Time. The pour is a nice orange color. This is a juicy, grassy, dry IIPA. The aroma is first rate, with lots of sweet floral scent. There is a bit of caramel, lime, green herbs - really good! A fine intro to this Missiissippi brewery.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle
If you are heavily into rye IPAs then this beer could be up your alley. To me it goes all in on the wrong things and falls short in most of them. It won’t keep me away from Lazy Magnolia in the future yet I have slightly lower expectations going forwards.
Aroma / Appearance - The semitransparent amber body settles below soft white snowy head. Rye, mulched leafs, and a slightly harsh bitterness push things too hard too quickly to be enjoyable.
Flavor / Palate - Rye toast, almond butter, and warmth permeate every sip. The rye aspects mostly overwhelm any IPA aspects leaving behind a trail of bitterness that falls just short of the finish line. I don’t regret the purchase but it could have been much better.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden/apricot with a small light tan head. Nose is grapefruit and floral hops, a bit of pepper, some rye bite at the end. Both sweet and bitter on the tongue at once, really well balanced, alcohol is well hidden. Rounded mouthfeel, oily at first and dry and chalky at the end. Interesting beer. I like the rye bite.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a hazy copper color with a white head of foam. Good retention. The aroma has strong pine and resinous qualities. Some lemony zest is going on, too. Much sweeter than expected. Sort of reminds me of a Tom Collins. There is a strong gin character here. Bigger body. Subtle carbonation and softly spritzy mouthfeel. Decent, and fairly enjoyable.
