Copper in color with a clear body, this double IPA has a nice appearance that emphasizes a substantial off- white head of foam with generous lacing. The nose on this beer is one of dark fruits, candy- like malt sweetness, a touch of pine, and some earthy hops.

With the taste, this beer offers plenty to like. The flavors of caramel, pine, grapefruit, and caramel are the standouts, along with some herbal notes, earthy, sticky hops, and alcohol. Different flavors vie for your attention and the overall taste, while certainly leaning toward the hoppy side, still attempts to balance itself with other flavors.

This is a tasty double IPA from Karbach and a complex brew. The complexities are somewhat lost if you drink the beer too cold. They become more noticeable as the beer warms slightly and they continue to reward with each passing sip. I must say that I like the draft version of this beer best, but the canned version is still very tasty and it is definitely a beer worth seeking out.
