Buffalo Bill's Brewery Alimony Ale India Pale Ale

Buffalo Bill's is out of Hayward, California, but according to the bottle is brewed and bottled by Independent Brewers United of Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon, or Berkely, California. 

"It's Irreconcilably Different."

This beer pours dark copper/amber in color.  The aroma is hoppy yet on a decidedly malty base.  The aroma is very fruity, but hard to pinpoint to any particular fruits.  The taste is fruity, followed by a strong sweet bread base, with a bitter finish.  Just like the Madhouse Iowa Grown IPA I recently reviewed, this is a really good beer, but a poor American style IPA.  It is just not hop forward enough for that.
