Notes/Commercial Description:
You are in a state of full Hop Delusion, but you knew what you signed up for when you popped this bottle. You knew that it had over 100 IBUs of hop bitterness and that it was dry hopped with insane amounts of Simcoe and Mosaic hops, but you chose to drink it anyway. It's difficult to say if you will ever snap out of it, for you have been smitten with the disorder that many can never overcome.

Always a solid beer. Not too malty for an IPA, great balance. This could be my favorite double coming out of Texas honestly, although Valkyrie is a good shout.

Fantastic DIPA, and IMO easily the best thing Karbach does excluding their fun series brews. Loaded with mosaic hops which is apparent in the nose and taste. I LOVE mosaic hops. Nothing compares to that tropical mango like flavor. They did an excellent job balancing out that super sticky dank hop mess with some sweet malts. If you haven't tried it do it.

The beer is mostly clear and golden with a lasting white head. Aromas of hops, pine, alcohol, biscuit, a touch of spice. Boozy with a light sweetness. Warming alcohol in the finish. A tad syrupy, coating the palate. A big, thick, malty DIPA. This was ok, but if I want a big, malty, high abv beer I'll seek other styles.
