3/5 rDev -18.5%
The beer is mostly clear and golden with a frothy white head. Aromas of yeast, bread, hops, resin, grass, a touch of alcohol. Decent flavor. Bready and what I commonly refer to as a "balanced" IPA or DIPA. Resinous hops and pine notes with a warming alcohol finish. This is ok.

poured from the bomber into a tulip.
A - right off the bat something is missing. pretty much no head on the pour what-so-ever. zero retention on what is there, lacing of the glass barely exists. The liquid is a pretty dark, honey colored yellow, but that's about the only thing it's got going for it.
S - the only smell i get off this is bittering hops. no individual notes associated with different hops that may or may not have been used... just a mess of "bitter". Certainly not what I would expect for a DIPA.
T - The bittering hops are there and again are a mess, but the malts dominate. Again, not what I would expect for a DIPA. I get some caramels, and a sticky-sweetness as my dominate notes.
M - Undercarbonated, sticky, not quite cloying, but almost there.
O - This is kind of a messy effort. I think the beer would probably actually benefit from some cellaring, this would give it time to carbonate, the stickiness could dissipate, and the bittering hops would balance a little betters - however this would probably cause the little nose that's there to disappear. Rassoul and the guys are great and i will continue to try all their unique products, but this one was a miss.

A: A hazy lifesavers orange color with bright white head that falls quickly. The teku didn't show much lacing except on the initial couple sips.
S: Mango, pine and stone fruit hop aroma right off the bat. A hint of alcohol comes out and in a munich bready vibe.
T: Wow.. A sharp, jagged pine bitterness (definatly in the 90+ IBU range) crushing the taste buds for a few sips. After the luplin shift adjusts a sweet toasty malt profile comes through in the middle and a finishing flavor that resembles the stone fruit from the aroma.
M: A super dry finish that might be emphasised by the sharp bitterness. Low/moderate carbonation and a lingering drying mouth sensation from the hop oils... probably
O: The bitterness in this beer had a very jagged characteristic that made it less than easy to drink. Not sure if it was the water used or gypsum.. but if it wasn't for that I think it would have been a good DIPA..

3.34/5 rDev -9.2%
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.

On tap at Liberty Station in Houston.
A: Pours a clear, but dull golden/orange color. A one finger white head head forms, and recedes to a ring. Light lace.
S: Bitter hops. Pine, citrus, lightly resinous. Some caramel malt for balance. Then lingering bitterness again.
T: Follows the nose and fairly simple. Bitter pine notes, some citrus hops. Caramel malt in the background. Finishes with long bitterness.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Lightly resinous, and just a little watery. The alcohol is very noticeable. A slow sipper, and I am really not that interested to come back to this.
Slightly above average. Just like everything else I have had from Buffalo Bayou, it is not bad just not something I would come back to to often.
