Oskar Blues White Buffalo West Coast IPA

RATINGS: 27   MEAN: 3.52/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.44/5   SEASONAL: Special   EST. CALORIES: 180   ABV: 6%
Jake Smith, A.K.A, The White Buffalo, took a break from promoting his new album, Shadows, Greys & Evil Ways, to stop by the original Oskar Blues brewery in Lyons, CO to brew up a batch of The White Buffalo West Coast IPAa sessionable, easy-drinking collaboration brew concocted after the California-based musicians favorite style of beer.

I love to drink, said Smith, who together with a team of Oskar Blues brewers created a light-bodied, heavily-hopped West Coast-style White IPA featuring Centennial, Simcoe, and Galaxy hops. I mostly drink IPAs, thats why I wanted to create something light and drinkable. As a beer drinker, thats what Im drawn to.
