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.

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..
