Notes: An American Style IPA. Smooth Malt taste has a touch of toasted malt flavor which accents the hops. Strong citrus flavors and aromas come from the triple dry hopping.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of pine, citrus and roasted malt. Very malty and sweet with caramel and a piney bitterness.

Hard pour, tons of head. Full-on west coast IPA. Hoppy and bitter. Can from KC had two weeks later at home.

Appearance: After a moderately hard pour the head settles in at two fingers capping the slightly hazy golden liquid; splashy lacing

Smell: Pine forest aromatics

Taste: Brash, piney flavors from the get-go with just a hint of biscuity malt underneath; almost sappy, through the middle, as the bitterness builds with the pine tones lingering into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: In a world of citrus and tropical fruit, Martin City swerves in the direction of the pine; a nice change of pace and a bit of the old school

Gold in color with a fingernail of brilliant white. Light lacing. Piney hop and light malt aroma. Piney hop flavor with a nice resinous hop burn to the tongue. There’s also a light stickiness.
