Really sweet and malty for a DIPA...enough to really overpower the hops. Drinkable and different, but not something I'd add to my list of preferred beers.

Way too malty, zero hop presence

Love the smell - very malty and toasted for an IPA. This continues in the taste but with some hops and tropical fruit. Really heavy, strong beer. Most double IPAs taste pretty similar to me, but I like how this one is maltier. And it's from Texas so that's always a plus.

Too sweet and too malty for my tastes in a DIPA.

Didn't care for the flavor or feel. Wasn't very hoppy for a double IPA.

For the high content of alcohol not enough flavor.

I bit strong for by personal taste. Karbach has much better. Alcohol over powers the flavor.

A- Deep amber color with foamy head. S- malt sweetness, piney hops. T- sweet malt, candied sugar(?), bitter on the back end but not out of balanced. M- heavier side of medium, creaminess. 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.

Full of spicy hop flavor with a solid, sweet malt backbone.
