I’ve never heard of or have had Lazy Magnolia. This was the first. Draft in South Florida. I really enjoyed this beer. It poured a pretty off-orange-light brown almost like a Blue Moon. I was thinking it would be too sweet or too citrus flavored based on the smell. Instead it surprised with a robust hops, rye overtones, citrus flavors and light malt flavors. It was smooth but with robust flavors all around. The citrus was primarily orange and maybe passion fruit.

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.

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.

jgentgesdo (692) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 10, 2016
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.

JStax (4990) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2016
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.

rondphoto (3840) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 21, 2016
bottle @ Double Shoppe / Ocean Springs MS --- Aroma of full-bodied caramel malt and rye. Cloudy medium amber with a two-finger beige head, cobwebs of lace. Taste is caramel malt infused with solid bitter rye that adds medium fizz in the swallow before sweeping to a finish that adds only a little hop bittering. A big, balanced brew, but never heavy. Recommended.
