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.

Mildly effective brew. Neither good nor bad. Hoppy notes. Tall head. Tangy, bitter flavor. Bitter wash down. Simplistic. My major issue is that it goes stale fast. You canít let it sit too long or it loses it appeal. Drinkable but not worth going out of your way for one. Basic fare.

Pours an orangey copper color with a frothy white head. Nose is floral hops and a hint of citrus. Flavor is nicely balanced bitter hop and sweet maltiness. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Lightly grassy finish. Good brew. I'll likely have another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2013
On tap at the Hay Merchant. Itís a lightly hazy dark golden beer with a dense, finger thick off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma is very tropical and flowery, some pineapple, peaches and pine cones. Some malty sweetness too. Thereís sweetness in the flavor too, balanced by a pleasant bitterness. Pine cones, peaches and some pineapple. Medium body, very soft on the carbonation. Bitter, fruity finish. Not the most exiting IPA Iíve had, but it doesnít taste bad and itís going down easily. 130825

Karbach Hopadillo IPA has a very thick, creamy, cream-colored head, a cloudy, golden-orange appearance, with some streaming bubbles and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of slightly piney, oily hops and sweet white bread. The flavor is of sugary, white bread, fairly bitter, piney, and faintly citrusy hops, and a touch of bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Karbach Hopadillo IPA finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and quite drinkable. The bitterness seems to be considerably lower than a 70 IBU. Overall, I score this at the lower end of excellent. RJT
