Full of fresh flavor on both malt and hop sides. Beautiful color, head, carbonation, and feeling.

great beer overall.

initial taste is very smooth with piney hops and a citrus grapefruit aftertaste.

with it's high alcohol content, it is a very unsuspecting beer.

12 dollars will buy you a 4 pack of 16oz cans. at first I was very skeptical, but after my first taste I could immediately detect high quality ingredients as well as a lot of hard work put into a very well thought out beer. I will definitely be drinking this beer more often.

A: Beer pours a nice red body with a half inch thick white head

S: A delicious smell of fresh hops hits me in the face. There is also a nice sweetness to it.

T: Tons of bitter hops and it tastes delicious in this style. It's almost more like and imperial IPA IMO.

M: Strong bit of carbonation on the back of the throat.

O: It's nice to finally have a nice beer from Fort Worth that's actually worth something... Take note Rahr.

16 oz can poured into oversized tulip glass.

A - Pours a murky copper/brown with orange around the edges when held up to light. The head is massive and creamy off white.

S - Earthy piney hops and caramel sweetness.

T - Sweet and malty up front with caramel, followed closely by bitter piney hops. A bit too bitter for the style I think. Grapefruit hop bitterness lingers.

M - Super smooth and creamy. The head is very fine, and the silky mouthfeel is great on this one. Moderate body, moderate to low carb, silky smooth.

O - My first Martin House brew, and better than I was expecting. A good take on the style with a great mouthfeel. A bit one dimensional but still tasty.
