Pours a chill-hazed gold with one finger of cream colored head, Nice head retention & lacing, some floaties late

S: Bready, grassy, some citrus notes once warm

T: Cakey, grassy with some tangerine up front, plus dryness , Orange and tangerine mixes in with grassyness & faint bready dry notes as this beer warms up, plus a kiss of pineapple. Finishes a little dry with tangerine, lime & faint pineapple

MF: Medium body, restrained carbonation, good balance

Solid IPA, drinks easy, but this won't make the rotation

Second beer from the Father’s Day pick six pack.

Poured from a can into a tall tulip glass. Mostly clear yellow color with good initial head and good lacing. Fairly subdued citrus smell and taste. Pineapple and a bit of tangerine. Decent feel. Decent IPA but other something to seek out.

From a can produced 3/7/22. Clear orange color with a generous amount of white foamy head. Smells of grapefruit and floral hops. Light feel. Light malt flavors with some grapefruit and resin-like hops. Good, definitely on the lighter side for IPAs.

A good basic IPA by Martin House. Hoppy with some great aromas.

Poured from a can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave some bubbly lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is very heavy of a ruby red grapefruit aroma mixed with some lighter notes of cracker malt. Along with these smells comes a little bit of a light fruit smell of peach and apricot as well as a bit of grass and hay.

Taste – The taste begins as one may have anticipated from the nose, with a cracker malt background and a decent showing of grapefruit hop. As the taste advances the grapefruit gets more and more intense with it becoming more bitter and rind like in nature. There is a little bit of fruity sweetness of orange and peach upfront, which fades as the grapefruit gets stronger. At the same time some other lighter hop flavors of an herbal and pine nature develop toward the end, and with the cracker malt and grapefruit, it leaves on with a bitter and more dry grapefruit citrus taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is light and crisp with a carbonation level that is medium. For the dry and bitter nature of the brew the light body is nice and makes for an easy crisp sipper.

Overall – A rather nice crisp, and bitter grapefruit heavy, more moderate abv. IPA. I could see this being refreshing on a warmer summer day.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Hazy golden amber glass holds a quarter finger of bright white foam that lasts and laces.

Aroma: Orange peel, earth/dust, crystal malt sweetness.

Taste: Orange peel, hint of mint, earthy/dusty hop note I normally associate with Fuggles (which I don't care for), all on a clean, candy malt. Little orange juice acid, very citric.

Mouthfeel: Gritty, medium low carbonation, medium body, slightly dry, mostly clean finish.

Overall: The hop choices aren't to my personal tastes, but this is well made, no off notes, very citric, pretty easy drinking. Glad I tried it, but so many IPAs out there, I don't see going back too many times.

"Made in Texas by Texans". Well...bless their cotton socks.
A beer that is not good. In any way.

Poured out of can down side of a glass with 2+ inches of creamy, foamy head with strong retention and lacing. It is dark golden color with small pieces of suspension. Smell is orange and lemon peels, with an essence of clover. Taste is largely citrusy, predominantly orange. It is an enjoyable IPA.

Nice honey color. Looks unfiltered, but I can’t tell for sure.
Smells fruity and hoppy. Web site says “ brewed with a hefty amount of Mosaic, Chinook, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops.” Well Mosaic is my favorite. The taste is great.
Mouth feel is OK. Overall very nice.
