look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Side pour into a tulip. 1 Finger head that quickly receded. Bubble size from foam up to a cluster of large bubbles up to 1/4 of an inch. Very little lacing and what is there is oily. Hazy golden amber with a slight reddish tint. Light on the carbonation for a DIPA.
S: Not too much smell. What I am getting is hops and a little bit of breadiness. That's about all I get. I would have hoped for some fruity citrus but its not there. I am getting some malt in the background but it does not blend as well as would be desired.
T: No too much complexity here. Again hops hops and hops with some mild bread. Bitterness on the backend. The ABV is well hidden.
M: A little too creamy for a DIPA and not enough crispness. Bite from the hops.
O: Not a bad DIPA but not a great one either. Its drinkable and certainly enjoyable.

A great Imperial IPA from Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company in Houston, TX. One of my favorites. If you like IPA's, you will enjoy this one. Only available on draft at this time, so I fill up my growler when I can find it. I have a fever and the only prescription is MORE COWBELL!!

16 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange body. Big white head. Nice lacing in the glass.

Smell - Musty piney hop aroma. Some grapefruit. Caramel and toasty malt.

Taste - Grapefruit. Lots of caramel malt. Some bready malt too. Intense hop bitterness. Grassy bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Incredibly bitter. Medium heavy.

Overall - Way out of balance. Aggressively bitter.
