22 oz. bomber poured into big tulip

L: caramel-orange with twinge of amber when held up to the light; nice fluffy head, full inch to 1 1/4-inch of off-white that sticks at the top.

S: lots of hops, but there's a little something different in it ... can't place it exactly; sweet; it's like a sweet malt smell muted heavily by a wheat smell that remains very subtle. as it warms up, I'm getting a slight sweet biscuit note, but the hops never die

T: fantastic hop bite that is balanced by a little passion/tropical fruit and some malt backbone; sweet; tons of hops and in Karbach lingo, it's a mix of Hopadillo (straight piney, citrus hops) and Rodeo Clown (loads of sweet malty, sweet Citra hops flavor).

F: loads of carbonation for a good crisp, clean quaff; solid midweight beer

O: love it. i couldn't begin to suggest what makes this a "Belgian" style brew ... it tastes much more like an American IPA with sweeter malt/Citra hops flavors that drag it away from the orange/grapefruit/pine styles and place it more in a balanced zone. it doesn't stand out as necessarily unique, but it *is* just a bit different from Karbach's other offerings. definitely worth a try.

22 oz. bottle poured into a large snifter.

A: Pours a deep burnt orange color. Nice head. About 1-2 fingers worth. Fades slowly to a ring around the glass and a bit thin layer over the top. Decent lacing.

S: grapefruit, citrus, pine. very nice.

T: similar to the nose. grapefruit, pine, citrus, orange peel. I get a bit of bready-ness on the back end. At 7.5% alcohol this is no abv bomb, but the alcohol is masked well, none-the-less. Hop flavor lingers in the mouth

M: good mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Coats the mouth well, but not in the way that a stout would.

O: good beer. Decently priced for a bomber at 4.99 in specs. Look forward to drinking this again at the brewery.

This ale pours out a nice dirty golden color, think of a dark golden wheat color, the body is hazy and topped off with a nice tan head roughly a finger and a half thick. Citrus fruits like grapefruit and lemons first hit your nose; orange zest coriander and mild pineapple also come through mixed in with some spiciness. Its light and crisp on the tongue; the spices and hop are upfront but not overpowering. The citrus fruits follow and then the mild bitterness kicks in. Over all this is a very smooth tasting Belgian IPA and the flavor is well done. I’ll certainly be buying a few more of these!

Roshambo Belgian IPA pours to a gold/tan color with a floral and citrus nose. The foam on this beer looks nice and it does leave some good lacing on your glass as you consume.

Roshambo is a complex beer with floral, fruity, and Belgian yeast notes. The presence of American hops is obvious and they impart a certain spiciness that is more than evident, but countered in an interesting way by the Belgian yeast.

Karbach describes this brew as a unique beer with a little kick to it- a simple yet accurate description. Combining IPA and Belgian beer into one, it features several complementary taste sensations. The beer is a little stronger than average, but it manages to maintain a smoothness and drinkability that keeps you intrigued to the end.

Roshambo is certainly a beer worth trying and will be available year- round in bomber bottles. If you find yourself uncertain what beer to try on your next beer store visit, play a round of roshambo and settle the decision, once and for all. You will be glad you did.
