COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Buffalo Billís Alimony Ale was originally brewed for a customer going through a divorce. It has gained a reputation as one of the most eccentric brews, from reports in the Wall Street Journal and Newsweek. No longer one of the bitterest beers in America, just one of the best.

tectactoe (3116) - Michigan, USA - NOV 22, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle: thanks, Kevin! Hazy amber with orange highlights; thick & chunky beige layer of foam sits on top. Aroma is quite malty; caramel, bread, sweet graham cracker notes. Hops cascade softly on top with light citrus, grapefruit, orange peel. Not really a stand-out anywhere, but not bad, either. Taste follows right along with lightly citric & rind-y hops, grapefruit peel, caramel & graham cracker malt sweetness. Some leafy, pine-y hops in the finish, with a sticky malt mouth coating. Again, not bad, just kind of bland. I typically donít like my IPAs this malty-sweet, either.

I remember picking up a six pack of this for Sunday football. I dont remember the beer itself much. Nothing special.

DuffMan (7995) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle. Hazy medium amber with golden highlights, ginormous foamy head that stays put, slowly caving in on itself. Aroma is pretty soapy, oddly enough. Caramel with intrusive plastic notes flood the palate, with only moderate bitterness. Just not very pleasant flavour country. Pass.

Mora2000 (5930) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2013
Amber pour with a white head. Aroma is full of bread, perfume, grass and toffee. Flavor is similar with a lot of flower and perfume notes from the hops, as well as some sweet toffee and a little bit of pine. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Came in with the notion that this would suck ass. Recieved a bottle as a gift and it has no aroma, but hte flavor i a weak, but serviceable ipa.

BelvidereIPA (140) - Belvidere, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Love e label and the name, but the brew is very average. Not a bad beer, but nothing about it stands out and there are some major flaws.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Pours murky brownish amber with some bold and brawny foam that wonít fall down. I had to wait to taste it. Citrus hops nose with carmel malt, some floral some apple in the back and medicinal alcohol. The nose is not real big. Taste is both sweet and bitter. Alcohol on the palate and a rubbery taste that I couldnít quite get into. I kept wondering what went wrong? Went down dry but tasted like pencil erasers and didnít fade well. I would pass on this next time.
