BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co
Texas, United States | website

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Surprisingly balanced and drinkable given its stats. While most American Double IPAs use West Coast citrus hops, we went with old world noble hops to give it a floral, grassy bouquet and then punish you with Warrior hops.

DO NOT ASK FOR WHOM THE COWBELL TOLLS. THE COWBELL TOLLS FOR THEE.

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.

A- Pours a golden orange with a thick off white head that doesn't dissipate.

S- Sweet citrus, nice hop aroma. Some pineapple.

T- Mmmmm. More citrus. Maybe some blood orange? Hop bitterness on the back of the pallet.

M- Dry, and slightly astringent. Light carbonation.

D- A decent IPA from a solid brewery.

The Buffalo Bayou More Cowbell is a true DIPA. Trying it at Mojos Sports Bar and Grill in Hobble, TX. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving a lace. The scent is dominated by sweet malt and pine resin. The taste is alcohol and pine mixes with sweet malt. The Mouthfeel is fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's a big beer. One is enough for me.

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!!
