4.14/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

16 oz. can poured into tulip

L: orange/peach ... light passes through but it's murky/opaque -- still, a very "clean" murk, no debris or wispy clouds in it; clearing up a bit on the bottom; gave it a hard pour, so the head was huge, too big, over 2 inches, BUT the way it bubbled and boiled, I bet a soft pour of this one would give you a nice thick head ... pretty sticky and lacing

S: hops and hops, but with a ton of sweetness; floral ... sweet flowers, some grassiness, hint of grain ... nice; as it warms you drink it, gets some caramel in there

T: bitter ... big big hop bite ... 118.36 IBUs means who knows? BUT this sucker is loaded with a ton of hops, and the website says lots of Noble hops, so it's not typical American DIPA citrusy or caramely -- more like massive bitter grass and flowers; as it warms, caramel shows through (probably my palette adjusting to the bitter); grain taste that might be some real light malt, which is offering a little balance to that bitterness

F: easy drinking and almost light for so much alcohol and taste ... good carbonation despite the big pour

O: strong contender for finding its way back into my fridge -- and i'm not a huge DIPA fan. it's super bitter but has a great grain/sweet grassy taste that is a good reward for chewing through the hop bite. love the idea of making a big pale ale with Noble hops, just for something a bit different.

bravo for Buffalo Bayou ... they keep moving up my favorite Texas brewery leaderboard
