The Brü Revü – Karbach Roshambo
According to the Urban Dictionary, Roshambo is a game; to kick each other in the balls over an object, last one standing wins. Rough. For Karbach, Roshambo is their version of a Belgian Style IPA. This is one of two new year round IPA offerings from Karbach (the other a Black IPA) available in 22 oz. bombers. The Roshambo poured an opaque copper with a substantial off white head. The aroma held Belgian yeast mixed with citrus and floral hops. The taste had Belgian yeast and slight clove notes on the front that faded quickly into the bitter hops which were slightly fruity citrus and floral. The Roshambo was a great full flavored brew with a good hop bitterness that coated my palate and a made me happy. Definitely a well done IPA from a stand-out Houston brewery.
