BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co
Texas, United States
buffbrew.com

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.

Pours hazy golden color with thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are excellent. Nice piney hoppy aroma with hints of citrus. There is a slight booziness to the aroma. The taste is very smooth and what I expect from many DIPAs. Caramel based malt with a very smooth transition to a piney hop. There is a moderate bitter aftertaste that is somewhat piney as well. Very good beer. I do indeed like this. Very smooth. While you can taste the alcohol content, it is not overwhelming.

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!!
