Buffalo Sunset is a black IPA that mixes two of my favorite drinks, IPAs and coffee. The coffee comes from the Houston based coffee company, Amaya Roasting CO. The name, Buffalo Sunset, comes from the old Sunset Coffee building that was built on the Buffalo Bayou in 1910. Buffalo Bayou described this series as "aggressive and boundary pushing" and it...

Fresh Nugs has a cleeeeean flavor - man it's so good. The flavor starts off bright and crisp. Since the news of the Karbach sellout, this beer is going to be a bit harder to find. Many local bars that specialize in local beers are saddened by the news and have all but dumped their Karbach kegs. Despite all the bad press, I wrote about these beers before they sold out, and people that don't know much about craft, might not know if we don't tell them....

One thing about Yellow Rose is, although average in looks, its overpowering smell arrived before the beer touched my lips. It was a full blitz of citrus and fruity blended aromas. My first taste was absolutely pure bliss. Its perfect blend of citrus flavors with just the right amount of hops made this the smoothest IPA I have ever...

Baa Baa Brewhouse is quickly becoming a force in the local beer scene. They have a solid line up, and I think this Father Goose IPA is the headliner! No disrespect to the other beers they brew - they're legit, Father Goose is just that much better to me. Man, hold up, this might just be Beer Chronicle history in the making! I don't think I've ever...

I believed that because it was an APA, the consistency would not rival most other international IPA and wow was I dead wrong. It’s ominous and intimidating design should have warned me that this was the ale you could not mess with. The after taste of hops still lingered strong after one gulp, and...

Karbach Quintuple IPA is is more complex than an angry woman. It's brewed with 5 different hop varieties, 5 different types of grains, and 5 different fermentables. It's a beer they brewed to honor their fifth anniversary, and it's completely ridiculous. The flavor changes drastically as it warms up, and everything intensifies. As you take a sip, it starts off somewhat boozy, then it gets...

Saint Arnold Oktoberfest is a freaking fantastic fall beer!! It starts off crisp and it develops a sort of sweet, malty flavor as it goes down. It's bolder and more full-bodied than the Karbach Oktoberfest, and it feels a bit heavier, too. Saint Arnold Oktoberfest has more flavor than...

BB15 is definitely a winter beer. Since it's special and only comes in limited releases, some folks are even stealing it out of the back of the store. I cracked one open, so I could write this review while it was still fresh, and I wish I woulda waited a bit. BB15 starts off mild, all things considered. The second it hit my tongue...

Brew of H Red IPA is a high quality beer, although the pints I tried weren’t exactly that red hue that I had expected. This beer had a good head and lace in the glass. Initially, This beer has a punch of hops and smooths out with malty sweetness in every sip. Brew of H has a good mouth feel. Starts off like a West Coast IPA then finishes closer to a bock....

Karbachtoberfest reminds me of a stronger version of Shiner's Oktoberfest. They share some of the same malty sweetness. Albeit a bit mild, Shiner's is milder. I'd recommend this to someone wanting to try something with a little more flavor than the macro brewed stuff, but not yet ready for an...
