Time to update this review!
I picked up a can from Spec's in Houston on Westheimer near Voss about 24 hours after canning so you know this stuff is fresh. I figured it is time to give it a fresh review since it has been almost a year since I last had it. Keep in mind I have not had this since the original review below.
I am drinking this directly from the can while sitting at my desk writing this.
A - It's in a can. I cannot see much other than some hazy straw colored action.
S - Much improved! Smells like a fresh DIPA! Floral nose along with some grassiness.
T - Again, much improved over my first experience. Great hop flavor that follows the nose. This is right out of the fridge and at first I noticed some unpleasant bitterness on the finish but this cleared up as the beer warmed up.
M - Good, medium body.
O - I picked this up wanting to give it (and Buff Brew for that matter) another shot. I am glad I did. The price point is just right and this is very drinkable straight from the can.
Original score was 2.8
Was excited to pick this one up at Growlers Montrose. Brought it home and chilled it overnight in the fridge. Poured in to a tulip glass with little fanfare from the carbonation, barely a thin head was produced. The initial aroma is citrus and reminds me of a barleywine. The first taste backs it up. This tastes unfinished and more like a barelywine than a DIPA. If you have ever had an old Rodeo Clown you would have a good idea of what this resembles.
Very disappointed in this one.

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!!

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.

I am really not sure why this got such a low rating. This is one of the smoothest DIPAs I have ever had. Excellent smooth taste. If it wasn't for the large bottle and high alcohol content, I could drink this all day. Even the smell is smooth but strong.
