4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brand-new brew from Karbach was had on tap and benefited hugely by being fresh, fresh, fresh. The color is a wonderful, clear copper with a characteristic American IPA nose: citrusy and spicy. The combination of malts and hops delivers a malty spice taste that went down very well (several pints’ worth, in fact). Even though fairly bold, it’s a good session beer – the brewer concentrated on taste without jamming on the alcohol.

On tap at Houston Hobby. Pours clear orange with a dense white head and good lacing. Light aroma cracker and citric hops. Thick bodied, malty, tasty but not very hoppy.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice color pour that is cloudy and bright copper. Aromas of watermelon, cucumber and pine. Lacks hop character and malt is good but over abundant compared to the relatively weak hops. Some nice resin and pine in the background. Wish it was more in tune to an IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep golden amber with an off-white head. Citrus and pine on the nose. Taste is mostly piney hops but well balanced by malty backbone. A real nice drinkable IPA without being too bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Have I had too many IPAs? Is there a way to tell? How can one ever be certain? I do know I went through two six packs of this and went back and forth between liking it and not caring much for it. Certainly does have some hops in it, no doubting that.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy amber with a 2 finger egg shell head that lingers. Nice lacing. Smells of piney hops, malt and some sweetness. Tastes of piney and citrus hops with some sweetness and a nice malt backbone. This IPA has good hop character w/o being a massive bitter hop bomb on the palate. Nice IPA!
