3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is strongly hoppy, resin and woody notes with a hint of malt. Pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick pale golden-wheat head. Taste fills the mouth with hoppy resin and woody notes and strong but not ferocious bitterness, and just a hint of sour orange. Bold, if not complex; definitely for only the stout-hearted. Er, IPA-hearted. ;) Smooth, firm, lively texture leaves a strongly hoppy finish that hangs around for a bit. Can you tame this beast?

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
