Surprisingly excellent brew! Frothy head. Hoppy. Caramel hue. Smooth wash down. No cloying or tin aftertaste. Simple but extremely flavorful. Iím beginning to like Karbachís entries. Well rounded brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a deep orange to almost brown. Clear. White head. Aroma is slightly bitter grapefruit and some malty notes. Taste is not overly malty but the malt is more present than Iíd like in this style. Some more grapefruit and orange peel in the taste. A little past prime it seems.

Clear dark amber beer. Smooth palate with mild carbonation. Smooth malt, trace of toffee. Rich marmalade hops with lesser red berry fruits, pine and grass. Finishes slightly gum numbing. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Central Market, 6/18/13
Aroma: The nose is resiny and floral, with some musky notes, citrus, and caramel/toffee
Appearance: It pours a dark orange-reddish color with a small off-white head and some sticky lace
Flavor: Tastes medium sweet and medium-plus bitter, but as it finishes, the bitterness takes over
Palate: The body is medium, it has an almost flat carbonation, and a long, rather dry finish
I thought this was a solid DIPA, though not a top of style offering. Still, it works well. Sorry it isnít another St. Arnold beer, Dave, I heard you like their name.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Received in a trade with MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a fairly murky copper color with a decent sized milky white head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. The aroma is grapefruit, pineapple, caramel and brown sugar mostly with hints of pine resin and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with sugary caramel malts and a solid shot of ethanol. Light bitter citrusy resinous hop flavor with a firm hop bitterness. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Decent enough IPA, but a bit sweet and a little too alcohol harsh for my tastes.

Can. The look is amber reddish in color, beige decent head, and slightly hazy. The smell is peachy, caramel, slight cheese, sweet, fruits, pine, candy, and alcohol. Smell is better with a little warmer temp on the beer. The taste is sweet, hops, candy, fruits, alcohol and ok bitterness. Slightly chewy and thick.
