look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

we dont see enough canned big ipas, so this beer fills a necessary role in my opinion, but the beer itself isnt as well done as some other karbach stuff. its new penny copper in color, clear, with a frothy and airy tan head with sticky retention. the nose on it is a little too balanced. i get some sweeter amber like malt, with just bitterness showing from the hops. the flavor too is similarly balanced by sweeter grain, and the hop profile doesnt offer nearly as much excitement as the black ipa they do. its all bitterness with only a touch of vegetal leafyness and a little residual sugar. well carbonated and foamy in the mouth, but the finish is a little metallic and the bitterness exacerbates that. the alcohol is also a bit exposed here. despite its shortcomings, we need more big ipa in cans, so i am grateful for this even though its a step below the other stuff ive had from karbach in terms of overall quality.

12 fl oz aluminum can with stylistically colored label art acquired as part of a 4-pack for $15.00 at the Growler Room here in Austin yesterday and served into an Independence Brewing pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average; I really enjoyed Karbach's hefeweizen/witbier hybrid beer. Reviewed as an Imperial IPA because it clearly identifies as a Double IPA on the label. No ABV is listed on the label, so I can't confirm that.

Served cold - straight from me fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as I pour.

Pours a nice head of even thickness. It's light khaki in colour and two fingers wide. Nice creaminess and frothiness. Some light lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Head retention is quite good - seemingly 8ish minutes - which is pretty solid for 9.5% ABV. Complexion could be softer and more welcoming, but it's not unappealing by any means. A pretty good head for an Imperial IPA overall.

Body colour is a clear copper with faint amber hues. Transparent and translucent. Average vibrance. No yeast particles are visible. Appears adequately carbonated judging by the carbonation bubbles.

Overall, it's pretty standard fare for the style, but the head retention does stand out. I'm looking forward to trying it, but the appearance isn't unique or special.

Sm: Some light grapefruit zest is present; often grapefruit is overbearing and biting but doesn't seem to be here based on the aroma. It's nicely balanced by a caramalt and bready malt sweetness. Well integrated pine hop character. Estery. Hints of tropical fruit hops - mango, maybe passionfruit. Not getting any pineapple (thankfully). Plenty of white sugars here. I'm also getting a strange fruityish note - maybe coconut? It's quite vague. A bit on the resinous end for the style. I do get a hint of orange, and I'm hoping the taste won't have that awful stale orange juice note that plagues so many beers in this style.

No yeast character or alcohol is detectable. A pleasant aroma of average strength. No off-notes. Not a unique or special aroma, but it's inoffensive and within the bounds of the style.

T: Certainly more malty than most fans of the style will be anticipating - and that's fine, in my book. It's got a sweetness from the biscuit malt, bready malt, pale malts, and caramalt. The onset of the hop notes is delayed until the second act, whereupon a timid grapefruit zest hop character emerges accompanying by generic floral notes as well as some well integrated tropical fruit notes - definitely coconut, maybe mango or tangerine, but thankfully no pineapple. Pine is very well incorporated, and dances about the second act. Not getting much in terms of a hop bite or bitterness; the hops emerge for the middle and then are covered up again in the third act, preventing any lingering bitterness from assaulting the palate. I for one like that approach, but I do think the sweetness is a bit overdone; I can tell the maltiness will make this a beer that quickly goes downhill with age. The bitterness is quite tame as a result; this might make a good Imperial IPA for introducing newcomers to the style. It's decently balanced, but far from ideal. By no means a paragon of the style, but a pretty nicely executed one.

Like most beers I review, it could use more complexity and subtlety. But it does have a fair amount going on and integrates its notes relatively well. I do like it.

Average depth and duration of flavour. Below average intensity of flavour for the style.

No yeast character or off-notes come through - other than a backgrounded alcohol presence. It's by no means boozy or hot, but it's a bit more annoying than a pleasant warmth.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Nice thickness and body. Pretty good presence on the palate. A biteen overcarbonated. What I love is that it's soft and welcoming rather than aggressive and biting; that's a lesson other imperial IPAs could learn from this one. Not too acidic. It facilitates delivery of the flavour profile nicely; it's by no means reticent. Complements the flavour profile pretty well.

Not gushed, boozy, harsh, or oily.

Dr: A drinkable approachable imperial IPA from Karbach. It's too bad the price point is so terrible (at least here in Austin). While I wouldn't get this again personally because it's not in league with the best beers in the style - even those that I'm used to being readily available - it's by no means a bad imperial IPA. In fact, it's above average. It'll scratch your hop itch. I'll enjoy killing the other three in my 4-pack, but I wouldn't recommend this to friends or trade partners. Decent, but unimpressive.

The pine (especially the evergreen pine on the finish) was a highlight for me.

Highish C+

yay IPAs in cans. Thanks to AdamR46 (reddit) for this one.

Can forces a big head pour of about 1.5 fingers, creamy semi thick head that fades at a med to slower pace, nice lacing too, super hazy murky darkish mahogany chestnut color.

Nose brings plenty of hops, citrus, orange peel, little earthy and spicy, some generic fruit, hint tangerine like, and into sweet malts, lots of candy sweet malts, caramel, etc, and mild candied orange peel.

Taste starts with more sweet candy malts, toffee, caramel, chewy malts with reddish candy and little syrupy. Then hops, some pine and little resin, earthy spicy and chewy, with a little citrus and orange peel, more generic fruit as well, hint herbal hops with a touch of mint and peppery notes. Mild warming booze too. Finish is drier but still sticky and mild syrupy, more warming slight tingly booze, and mild citrus, more earthy spicy hops, chewy like hops and a little herbal pine lingering.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, some warming booze, little syrupy, decent carb,

Overall not bad, but nothing too crazy, typical DIPA with some citrus earthy spicy mild piney resinous like hops, big sweet malts, pretty good but nothing too special.

Poured from a 12oz van into my Southern Tier tulip. It poured a caramel in color with a thick, foamy head to it. Nice lacing to it as I drank it and nice looking beer overall.

The aroma shows a lot of candied fruit flavors to it with a bit of caramel mixing in. I get some grapefruit and citrus rind flavors coming in it as well. It's got a lot of sweetness to it, almost to the point of being sugary.

The taste is pretty malty up front with a lot of sweeter caramel and candied fruit flavors coming out. The finish is where it starts to show more of a grapefruit, citrus rind bitterness to it. It's very sweet and almost sugary as well with the candied flavors showing up nearly throughout. I get a little bit of a metallic presence in the finish as well.

The mouthfeel is on the heavier side of the style with carbonation being moderate. Overall, it was a decent beer but it didn't really stand out in the style for me. It felt a little too sweet with the sugary, candied fruit flavors dominating a little too much for me.

Pours copper colored with 2 fingers of cream colored head Good lacing & above average head retention

S: Grassy, leafy & herbal hops

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation , alright balance

Drinks easy enough, just not quite put together the way I like my DIPAs

This is the last of the lot (for the time being) from the wondrous JenRay whose CANtinued CANtributions to The CANQuest (TM) keep the madness humming along. Many thanks and I hope that Lunch lived up to expectations.

From the CAN: "Brewed in Texas"; "Get Down with the Clown!"; "It's a job! And a hazardous one at that. Benefits, you ask? I hardly think so. But the show must go on. So, it's with bravado that the Rodeo Clown takes his place in the arena lights. Whether or not he's insane is not important right now. It's with grit and intensity that the Clown steps in the path of almost certain destruction."

No Clowning around on the Crack 'n' Glug, either! Me and this good old boy got right down to business. I had a finger of dense, tawny head with great retention by the time that I was done. Color was a deep, reddish amber with just a gentle haze to throw off its clarity. Nose smelled of minty hops and I was ready. Send in the Clown! Mouthfeel was medium but the hops hit the ground of my tongue running and scrubbed away any loose taste buds that might have been hanging around unnecessarily. Finish presented a pleasant caramel maltiness that briefly offset the onslaught of hops, but the extreme finish lingered with a minty hoppiness that almost made me want to gargle with it. Not a bad addition to The CANQuest (TM).

Received in a trade with MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a fairly murky copper color with a decent sized milky white head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. The aroma is grapefruit, pineapple, caramel and brown sugar mostly with hints of pine resin and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with sugary caramel malts and a solid shot of ethanol. Light bitter citrusy resinous hop flavor with a firm hop bitterness. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Decent enough IPA, but a bit sweet and a little too alcohol harsh for my tastes.

Served in a Darkness tulip. Thanks to Chris for picking one of these up for me in Texas. Bottom of the can cryptically displays 052K-3 02902.

A – Pours with a finger of creamy yellow-tinged foam, eventually settling to a thick collar, wisps, and splotches of lace. Hazy dark amber-red body, with a few stray bubbles adhering to the sides of the glass.

S – Citrus hops, light pine and earthiness, grapefruit zest, a bit of tropical fruit. Fairly heft malt backdrop, with some red fruits and treacle, as well as a bit of bread and burnt sugars. A tad odd for the style, but fairly pleasant.

T – Taste is a bit more malt-heavy, with moderate, lingering hop bitterness. Tropical fruits integrate with a caramel and tangerine hop flavors, but there’s enough zest to balance the sweetness. The ABV wasn’t listed on the can, but I assumed this was a bigger East Coast DIPA (and was proved right, but the listed 9.5%).

M – Medium-full body, with a syrupy and somewhat heavy feel to it. Lower carbonation, and thankfully dry in the finish, with lingering hop oils. Well-hidden alcohol. One of the rare occasions where I thought a beer needed more spritz.

D – Not really my kind of DIPA, but there’s no major flaws or issues either. I had no problem with the 12oz can, but it’s not really a beer of which I’d order multiples. Solid, but will be forgotten by tomorrow.

Another beer from a big box provided by the legendary woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a mahogany color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of piney hops. Taste is hops, alcohol well pronounced, bitter, pines. Feels medium bodied and very dry in the mouth and overall I found this to be a mediocre beer.

Poured from a 1L growler filled at the Whole Foods on Montrose.

The beer pours a dark orange-amber color with a large off-white head. The aroma is very powerful, with a nice mix of resinous hops, orange notes and some biscuit malt. There is also a little bit of alcohol in the aroma, not letting you forget the beer is nearly 10 percent.

The flavor is heavy on the hops. I get quite a bit of bitterness, as well as some nice orange and resin notes from the West Coast hops. Once again, there is some biscuit malt and a little bit of alcohol in the flavor, which gets more prominent as the beer warms. The beer is extremely to drink and quite enjoyable.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Received as an extra in a trade from LadyofMuchBeer. So awesome.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a crystal clear hazelnut hue with a very thin quarter inch head that fades to leave a light halo and a little cloud. Not much going on.

S - Smell is surprisingly not all that malty for a DIPA. Sure, the carmel and malt is still there but there are some nice light pine and citrus. While I'd love more pine/citrus I have to respect that this doesnt smell like a malt bomb.

T - Taste though on the other hand..lots of malts here. Assault of sweet carmel malts and some light earthyness. Fades to a solid bitterness that isnt too too distinguishable. Just bitter.

M - Mouthfeel is top notch here. ABV not that noticeable, not too heavy, not syrupy at all. Lightly carbonated just enough to be pleasant.

O - Overall this is a enjoyable beer out of Texas. Really liked some aspects of it. Its just tough for me, I hear IPA and I want pine and citrus, but more often than not I get a mouthfull of malts. Glad to try this brew though!

A - Pours medium to dark orange red, amber in color. The head is quite silky and thick looking and carbonation is mild.

S - Earthy caramel malt with mild pine and citrus. More malt forward in the aroma and the hops don't have much aroma.

T - Caramel malt base up front and past the midway mark the tongue gets slammed with a healthy dose of piney and grapefruit bitterness followed by boozy effervesence and some warming on the way down. Nothing complex, just straightfoward and surprisingly very bitter. The hops are barely detectable in the nose but makes up for it on the tongue, almost agressively bitter.

M - Medium body and slight carbonation pricklies on the tongue.

O - Not setting the world on fire, this is a Double IPA that's straightforward with nice hoppy bite. This is a big beer I could keep in the fridge as a regular "go to" and not be afraid to pair with any type of food - I'm one who prefers to focus on what's in my glass at the time and this is a beer where it refreshingly doesn't matter. It doesn't require your undivided attention (in a good way).

A: Pourd a burnt orange color wit good carbonation leaving a nice white cap, light bubbles and lacing present

S: A little booze stings the nostrils with some pine needles, caramel and dash of citrus

T: Initial caramel base with orange peel, grapefruit, light pine which transitions into a orange peel meets IBU's blend midway. The finish has a light boozey, nitter orange rind, hop bite which lingers on...

M: Medium bodied, balanced and chewy. A good amount of IBUs here.

O: A pretty good IIPA that I would not kick out of bed

A little darker than expected, but otherwise an average looking double ipa, light auburn and brown colors, 1/3" white head. Aroma was seriously lacking anything in terms of dry hopping. For shame.

Taste, bitter, crystal malts, long boil C hops. Definitely less than average for style. The mouthfeel is almost all alcohol and bitterness. Lacks hop flavor. A tough beer to finish.

On tap at the Petrol Station in Houston, TX

A: Pours a dark orange/red color. A two finger beige head forms with good retention. Light lace is left.
S: Floral hops with pine resin. Big fruity grapefruit and pineapple aromas. Burnt sugars, caramel malts. Simple, but very nice.
T: At first fairly herbal and tea like, though that fades. Resinous with some grapefruit and pineapple again. Caramel malts, toast, very malty in the middle and end. Finishes with some light honey sweetness. I like it.
M/D: A full body with good carbonation. Crisp, and effervescent. Though smooth at the same time. The alcohol is not noticeable. Easy to put back a few.

This is fairly simple, but very nice. Plenty of hops that are not over barring with enough sweetness and malts for balance. Though really more of an American Barleywine with the malt character. Still well done and recommended

Thanks to kspongeworthy for this one...

A: Pours a perfect amber shade with about one full finger of pure white head. The foam settles quickly and leaves a rocky halo along the edges of the glass.

S: The nose is sweet malt, pine, and booze. That's about it.

T: The initial blast is sweet and malty, but it transforms into bitters and spices in the middle. I get a punch of pine and grapefruit mixed with coriander. The finish is booze, yeasty, and stinging.

M: Medium bodied beer. I feel like I need to chew this beer a bit. The flavors are all over the place and it finishes biting and dry. The booze comes on strong in the finish with a slight touch of ripened bananas.

O: This beer is alright, but it's nothing special. I don't think I;d seek it out again.

Very fresh straight from the brewery tap.
Hazy amber color with a thick head with short retention.
Relative light aroma with sweet toasted malt, pine, passion fruit and orange marmalade.
Flavor with lots of honey and tropical fruits. Notes of spices, lots of tangerines, caramels, pineapple juice, pine and resin. Very dry and bitter aftertaste.
Full body with mild carbonation. Somewhat sticky. Amazing alcohol of 9.5% abv is superbly well hidden.
Nice DIPA, a bit quite sweet as some DIPA regularly are, but still has a nice flavor and balance that keeps it pleasant to sip through out the degustation.

12 oz can pours a mostly clear, dark copper color with a massive cap of tan head. Very sticky lacing is the most impressive part of how this beer looks.

Citrus, tropical and maybe a little herbal. Malts dont roll over and play dead...they show plenty of caramel and bread. Smells pretty good, but wont rival the best, dankest DIPAs on the sniff test.

Tastes juicier than it smells, there is loads of hop flavor on here...mostly tropical and the alcohol supports that flavor well. More sweet than dry, and malts are smooth but somewhat assertive...toast and caramel. ABV well integrated and the mouthfeel is full, creamy and lush. Its a pretty good beer, not top tier DIPA, but a great price point at less than 10 bucks a 4-pack. I can see myself buying more of this and it is a much needed addition to the slow-growing, Texas-brewed DIPA posse.

22oz bottle poured into a teku glass

A- pours a clear deep amber color with a small foamy white head that retains nicely, before leaving some nice lacing behind

S- aroma is loaded with tropical hops; picking up mango, passionfruit, guava & citrus. Underlying sweet malt

T- taste follows the aroma with loads of tropical hop flavors; mango, guava, passionfruit & pineapple. Malty undertones adds a bit of caramel malt and slightly sweet finish

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that finishes slightly creamy

O- a bit maltier than I prefer in a DIPA, but really liked the tropical hop flavors

Received in a beer trade from Dolph1979. Thanks, again, Tim...

Dark gold body and off-white, sticky, creamy head. Hop aroma comes across with lots of pine. Taste is malt-forward. Sweet and velvety. Excellent IPA bitterness brings up the finish while the malt sweetness lingers on.

A good IIPA. No overly "alcohol-y". Good aroma and taste, hits the style.

Pours a dark caramel color, with a beige head that laces a bit.

Aroma is initially piney, with some resinous, slight citrus and a bit of sweeter, bready malts.

Taste is a bit sweeter, with some caramel notes, bread, citrus, resins, and notes of pine. It has a low bitterness level.

It's got an upper medium body, slick and creamy.

Definitely a solid DIPA. Thanks Will!

Dangerously chuggable. O- a bit on the maltose side of the IPA spectrum but it works nicely. Just enough hops to balance. I enjoyed this brew.

12oz can from Monkeypuker (thanks man!). Canned 12/18/13. Served in a Clown Shoes snifter.

Hazy chestnut with two fluffy fingers of manilla head. A thick layer of foam lingers, leaving big clumps of lace.

Straightforward, lackluster nose with pine, citrus zest and biscuit.

This one is a bitter bomb. Flavors of pine, earthy, floral, citrus peel, cracker, biscuit, pepper and alot of booze.

Slick medium full body with moderate carbonation. Bitter earthy hops and alcohol finish.

Ultimately this is just ok. Not much flavor to balance the heavy handed booze and bitterness. I didn't have a problem drinking the can but I won't be seeking out any more.

A: Slightly hazy amber orange color. Full finger and a half of fluffy of white head. Like a pillow on top. Leaving sticky lacing already. Head sticks around.

S: Earthy hop aromas. Herbal notes. Some pine. Sweet malts. Might be drifting towards the dark side here.

T: Up front, you get some herbal bitterness. Definitely more on the earthy hop side. Some orange marmalade behind that. Flavor grows on you as you drink it. There is a big sweet malt backbone here. Have to match the hop bitterness. Finish is sweet with some dryness.

M: Medium bodied. Rich mouthfeel.

bitter citrus flavor up front, heavy earth notes, not as much hop flavor as in the smell.. very boozy.
medium to full body, moderate carbonation, sticky, creamy.

a great dipa, but i wish it came through better in the flavor department.
