#6 ALIMONY ALE - BUFFALO BILL'S BREWERY

Reviewed favorably but not often on BA. No reviews in over a year and not enough to even garner an overall score. Usually that's a sign of a retired or obscure beer but it seems to be a prominent active seasonal roster selection on Buffalo Bill's website.

The astonishing thing is that when this beer came out in 1987 you heard little talk about India pale ales, although Bert Grant introduced his in 1983.

Instead it got attention because it was called the "bitterest beer in America." Some have stated it was 100 IBUs, but there's no record of it being measured and were it then it seems unlikely it would have reached anywhere near that number.

A lot certainly has changed.

It sure has. Seeing as the IPAs are the main staples of many breweries now.
