4.38/5 rDev +6.6%
Appearance: Dark maple in color, like a solid DIPA should be
Smell: Slightly sweet, with a hint of the red wine
Taste: Amazing. Slight hop bite but overall, incredible smooth from the barrel aging. Finishes with a sweet, merlot-like end.
Mouthfeel: Not too syrupy nor too carbonated. Pretty ideal, honestly.
This beer is exactly what you expect when you hear "DIPA aged in red wine barrels". Incredibly smooth, definitive notes of the red wine, the slightest of hop bites offset by the aging but still present.
I live in Houston and I have an extensive array of local brews; I think Karbach is hands down the best coming out of Texas and I hope they start widening their distribution beyond Houston and SE Texas.

Big thanks goes out to beeruser for sharing this one at a past Random Sunday Tasting! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured red-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, orange peel, pineapple, tropical fruit, tropical fruit hop, and wood. The flavor was of sweet malt, orange, citrus, citrus hop, wood, tropical fruit, pineapple, and tropical fruit hop. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. Unfortunately I did not get very much of the barrel on this brew with all of the fruit flavors and aromas going on. But what I did pick up on I really quite enjoyed. There was a ton of tropical fruit here that made it quite easy to drink throughout the glass. This was definitely a really well done brew that unless the base beer brought all of this fruit along could have done without the barrel treatment and still be quite good.
