APPEARANCE: A thick, creamy foam sprung out of the can as soon as I cracked the beer. That strong foam continued on into the glass and created about three fingers worth in my snifter. The heavy, foamy nature of it kept the head from falling and ten minutes later there was still a finger strong. It also provided some very nice, layered lacing. The beer underneath it was copper in color with a very slight haze.

SMELL: Some very pretty, floral hop aromas greet the nose with lemon zest and apricot notes. A subtle, brown sugary, malt smell lingers underneath as well.

TASTE: The hop flavor is very different from the hop aroma. The citrus turns into more grapefruit and they are intensely grassy. The malt is similar to the nose in the sense that it is a brown sugar/molasses-like taste and it provides a nice balance.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium to big bodied with a fair amount of sweetness. The beer goes down smooth and velvety with a drying finish.

OVERALL: Strong effort from Karbach here. It is a much bigger beer than I expected from an IPA, even if it is a “Texas IPA”. If they ever bring this up to Colorado it’ll make a great late-fall/early winter beer for those first few cold days of the year.
