A finger's worth of light khaki froth... decent retention... Color is a still translucent copper with no carbonation... Subtle nose with earthy hops and biscuits base... Palate is earthy but the hops are a bit understated... Medium bodied and a bit chalky... Decent but slightly uninspired though I do love the name...

16 ounce can in a pint glass.

Copper colored west coast looking IPA with a firm 1f white cap. Retains well and leaves lots of lacing.

Earthy, floral, caramel malt, mild grapefruit citrus, a bit of pine and a little dank.

Flavor is malt forward. Some pine, orange, and grapefruit . Hop flavors are mild.

Medium bodied, good carbonation. Malt stands out yet finishes dry. No hop bitterness.

Not bad but I expected some bitterness from a brew named “Mother in Law”. Oh, well.

Sampling a cold 16 oz can poured into my snifter. Canned on 6/25/2020. Thanks to my Bro Curt for picking this one up for me!
Pours a slightly cloudy copper to gold color, definitely not a haze bomb as I can see through my glass. THere are multiple active streams of carbonation rising to the surface after the pour.
A creamy sponge like eggshell white head foams up 3 cm and fades slowly after my pour. The foam eventually settles as a dense surface layer and leaves tight lattice work completely around my glass. My nice head retention and lacing! The beer looks great!
Aroma is more olde school IPA or I guess west coast than I expected. I get pine sap, some floral notes and a good bit of citrus, but more grapefruity than orange or sweeter fruit. I dont get much malt balance on the nose.
First sip reveals a medium body with slick and smooth feel. The carbonation is fine and tingly and the beer drinks very easy.
Flavor is briefly caramel malts and then rolls to some floral hop notes and finishes very dry and pithy. A lot of grapefruit rind on the finish that lingers with some bitter bite. No hint of the ABV here and again the finish is much more west coast IPA style.
The beer looks great in my glass but the flavor was a little bit of a letdown, not flawed, but was a little less robust and complex than I thought it may be. Still worth a shot, but I wouldnt chase the beer.

16 ounce can, canned on 04/23/20. Thanks to my friend Denis for this brew! Served in a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy amber color with about an inch and a half frothy off-white head that stuck around a while. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is very light, the brew smells like floral/herbal hops, grapefruit and some caramel malt. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some grassiness and bready malt. There's also an herbal bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a little coating and has a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was OK overall. Not bad by any means, but it just didn't do anything for me. But if you can get a single can somewhere you might as well try it.

Pours a clear golden color in the classic pale ale mode. The carbonation is visible while the moderate head dissapates fast.

The nose is hops forward with semi pungent notes of leafy green grass and zesty citrus fruit. The herbal aromas dominate as they are redolent of a pine forest, while the secondary aromas evoke grapefruit and orange.

In contrast, the taste highlights more of the citrusy flavors, with pithy and zesty notes of grapefruit rind and orange. The malt backbone begins dry and cracker like, however, some bready and caramel sweetness does open up as the drink warms. Moderate pine and grass flavors add spice and a clean hops bitterness develops for balance. Medium bodied, semi crisp and moderately carbonated. The finish is dry with piney and grassy spices.

Decent IPA that is mostly in the classic West Coast style. I would have liked the bitterness to have a little more bite, however, it’s refreshing and easy to drink
