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.

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.

Drank from can at Club Quarter hotel in Houston. Nose under ripe citrus, weedy, dank. Taste moderate bitter up front, then dank, lightly spicy, slight vegetal, and some grapefruit. An overriding hint of bubblegum throughout Late mild grainy malt. Light bitter finish.

[2015 Backlog] Can shared at Pauls for the FF tasting. Pours a orange body with thick white head and lacing. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of pineapple, light citrus fruits, soft malt character and herbal profile.

Dark copper pour with big off white head. Nice citrus nose with with a touch of sweet malt. Flavor of orange, touch of bread and a hint of roasted malt. Nice bitter hoppy finish.

Had at Texas Rangers game in plastic souvenirs cup. As a result, can't really tell appearance or aroma. Taste was of a decent IPA - some citrus, then bitter hops - taste of alcohol was present which I didn't love. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Bryan! Can, pours a big rocky head on a darker than pale clear beer. Medium clean hop perfume aroma. Taste is imperial IPA, over the top and terribly on style. Pucker, bitter back of throat. Does have some co2 but that doesn’t hide the in yer face attitude of this brew. Towards the middle of the session it begins to get volatile, I think I’m getting a little dizzy. Lots of hops with what feels to be more than 7% abv. Viscous mouth coating soapy finish, chewing & sucking on green grapefruit rind soaked in clear pine tar. . Whew. What torture.

Got it at Hopdoddys, served in a goblet that made the foam last a short time. Aroma is nice, obviously piney and tastes resiny. First real beer in a couple of weeks, so it tasted like an IPA explosion in my mouth. Got a second one, it’s a pretty straightforward beer. No high alcohol content is perceivable, drinks easily.

Citrus and spice. Pine. Pours copper orange with a bright white head. Well balanced leaning toward grapefruit and pine. Clean finish. Very crisp and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
