COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper in color with ruby highlights, this Texas IPA has a strong citrus aroma with hints of earthiness and spice from the added European hops. Light berry fruits are perceived before giving way to citrusy hop character. Dry and quenching, this IPA is dry-hopped for added aromatic intensity.

Pours dark amber with three fingers of white frothy head. This beer has citrus notes in the aroma and taste. The hop bitterness is just right. This is a super solid IPA. Obviously we dont get this in Georgia. My brother brought it up as a Christmas present from our home town of Houston. Keep up the good work Karbach!

Tap. Clear copper with a nice beige head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, bread and grass. Taste is malty and a little fruity with a mild bitterness. Medium body. Pretty smooth. Not a great ipa but definitely average or better and enjoyable.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Location: Draft at BRC Gastropub, 12/4/13

Aroma: The nose is full of resiny hop goodness, pine, citrus, and some caramel malts too
Appearance: It pours a hazed dark orange color with a thick, frothy off-white head
Flavor: Tastes plenty of hoopy as well, not super bitter, but nice bitterness, with mild sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth, clean feel, soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was excellent. I’m a fan of the base beer, but the double dry hopping may have made it even better, particularly in the nose. The aroma is very hoppy and really just wonderful. Nothing bad to say here.
Earlier Rating: 7/22/2013 Total Score: 3.8
Location: Draft a couple of times around Houston, June/July 2013

Aroma: The nose is citrus and pine, some grass, caramel, and resin as well
Appearance: It pours an amber-orange color with a frothy head and decent lace
Flavor: Tastes much like the nose, some medium-plus bitterness and some sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it is a little sticky, with a solid mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty solid IPA. It seems to be the go to IPA on draft at quite a few local restaurants, and I am just fine with that.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Worth every bit of $9.75 at Reliant Stadium. Hazy amber with a golden tint and a nice white head. Floral, hoppy bitter aroma. Strong, piny floral taste that subdues the malt. Very good IPA.

12oz can thanks to Onebigtymer11. Thanks Nick! Pours a hazy deep copper color with 2 fingers of foamy off white head. Aroma of fresh citrus and tropical fruits, and caramel malt. Taste of toasted bread, citrus zest, grapefruit, and pine.
