Hopadillo IPA pours to a clear copper color with a nice head of white- colored foam that leaves some decent lacing as you consume. The beer eminates a nose that combines floral, citrus, biscuit, and pine with the scent of grapefruit and peppery hop spice coming through each time you inhale.

The taste of this beer is about what one would expect, based on the nose. The taste includes flavors such as caramel malt, bread, grapefruit, spicy/peppery hops, pine, and citrus. The beer starts off hoppy, then briefly switches to the flavor of caramel malt, before returning to the taste of citrus/peppery hops in the finish. The maltiness is subdued, but it still makes itself known before the hops take over and finish the task.

Hopadillo IPA is a hoppy brew, as an IPA is expected to be. I like that it does have some maltiness, but one cannot deny the quick transition back to the flavor of hops. The sticky, somewhat oily hops are the flavor you remember best and I like that the beer manages to look and finish clean.

Hopadillo is available only in the Houston area right now, but this may change in the future. In the meantime, Houstonians are reveling in the great taste of Karbach beer. It is nice to have such an excellent carft brewing operation in our backyard and we look forward to more great products in the near future.
