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.

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.

Clear amber color with a sort of thick off-white head with good retention and leaving laces.
Nice but not really intense aroma of sweet flowers, pineapples, passion fruit and minerals.
Bitter and bold flavor of herbal and floral hops, pine, spices, toasted malts, some mango, resiny and oily hops and peaches. Hints of caramel and toasted malts that are swiftly overcome by its bitter hop power. Quite dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness that made me sneezes a few times.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 9% abv is well hidden, especially considering its relatively lower body.
Surprisingly balanced DIPA considering its 118 IBUs (but for sure leaned towards the bitter end as hop heads love it), and gladly not overly sweet as well. Not that complex and not my preferred choice of hop profile, though. Great option if you dig noble hops as opposed to predominant citrusy DIPAs.
