12 oz bottle thanks to deepsouth. Glad to have Lazy Mag's first big beer made after MS lifted the cap, so I couldn't be more in Jason's debt. Served up in a shaped pint.
A: Pours up a light copper colored body. Held to the light, a little more golden hues come through but it remains copper. Besides the chill haze, this beer is clear with a steady carbonation activity in it. The pour got me a finger of chunky, foamy white head. Falls to a thin but complete top cap. Lacing is spotty and minimal, but still has stick to it.
S: First thing that springs out of the glass to me is just perfect tangerine aroma. It is spot on. Incredibly refreshing citrus aroma. Light sweetness (maybe a touch of caramel) coming off the malts. The rye brings a light spicy and earthy note to round everything out. There may not seem to be much here, but everything that is plays a big role and borders on perfect levels.
T: Starts off with some hop punch. Brings a citrus burst of tangerine and orange and all of that is swallowed up by hefty dose of pine resiny goodness. The malts attempt to balance with some lightly sweet caramel and bready notes, but the hops prevail. The rye lingers in the background of each sip along with some floral and earthy notes.
M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Hop stickiness on the palate but the beer dries out like a good IPA should to create a pretty clean palate after each sip. ABV plays zero role and is not noticeable at all. Aftertaste is all rye and earthy goodness.
OA: Just fantastic. This is by far Lazy Magnolia's best beer to date. Huge flavor, big on the hops but a great amount of balance in almost all arenas. They knocked this one out of the park. Thanks again, Jason. This beer needs to see regular rotation.
