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

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!!
