Pours clear mahogany with a large, fluffy white head. Smells very malty and sweet with a solid earthy hop note underneath. Taste is very bitter, floral, with some caramel and bready notes underneath; the flip side of the nose. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Karbach Rodeo Clown Double IPA finishes with a lasting bitterness.

Pretty clean amber pour with medium cream head. Some lacing. Aroma of caramel malt sweetness and earthy citrusy hops. Thick mouthfeel. Caramel malt. Spicy hop character. Hint of pine. Bitter sweet finish. As good as 120 minute.

One of the first cans to make it out of Texas. Slight aroma of earth, maybe a slight bit of sour apples. A bit of earthiness, grapefruit... a bit weaker than I would expect out of a Double but this is very good, very smooth and extra drinkable. Delicious.

Tap at Flying Saucer, Sugar Land.
Pours a glassy and sappy amber with a nose of upfront-grapefruit and pine. Flavor is bitter and abrasive (in a good way) strawberry grapefruit. Slick on the tongue. Giddy up.

This is a solid double IPA. Very strong, rich malt backbone. Very powerful aroma and taste. Resinous, woody pine, and citrus. If youíre a fan of subtlety, this isnít for you.

Slightly hazy orange with a thin rocky white head. Blissful aroma of sweet caramel, orange zest, and resinous hoppy bitterness. Flavor was much the same. While quite bitter and slightly boozy, there was a ton of caramel sweetness, and a tone of orange zest, with a lot of sweetness much like orange candy. But bitter and hoppy. Quite large but exceptionally balanced and quite caramel-sweet for a DIPA.

Dry hopped cask at Petrol Stations anniversary party. Pours a cloudy amber with a small frothy off white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is floral hops and grapefruit. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet hop and resin. Hides the alcohol well making it easy to drink, a very good IIPA from Rodeo Clown.

I had this beer when I used to live in Houston, TX. This I believed was the best that the brewery had at the time. It's too bad that it doesn't come all the way up to Washington state.

Deep, clear, reddish copper with a big off-white head and lacing everywhere. Aroma of pine, resin, caramel malt and bread. Taste is heavy hops, but still nicely balanced. Medium-full bodied, pretty smooth and a touch boozy. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Really damn good double ipa from Karbach. I say this after trying Pliny the elder two days ago. Very malty, yet obviously hoppy beer. Nice and syrupy/resiny in a good way. Good bitter/smooth mouth feel. To me, the taste is like a weak barley wine. And by weak I mean look at the abv compared to a BW.
