Bottle is dated February 2014. Just hit the stores locally about 3 days ago and the brewery is less than an hour away. So probably pretty damn fresh. In fact I appear to be the first person to review the bottled version.
A: Pours a slightly hazy amber/red. Tall, frothy offwhite head. Top notch head retention and moderate splotchy lacing.
S: Quite the gamut of hop aromas. It's kinda hard to pick them all out. I get lots of citrus, grapefruit mainly. Loads of tropical fruits with pineapple, apricot and mango maybe? Spicy pine is in there too. Layers of hops, none really stand out prominently. Overall a very fruity aroma.
T: Yup, more hops and more variety. It's all over the map. Up front it's mainly the fruitiness with the grapefruit and tropical fruit. The spicy pine and resin follows shortly after into the middle. Loads of very bitter grapefruit peel in the finish, this must be the adjunct as well as the hop flavor combining. Quite bitter in the finish in general really. Long lingering bitter, bitter grapefruit skin flavor hangs around forever. Pretty dry in general, no real sign of malt.
M: Medium bodied, smooth but quite dry and bitter.
O: A beast of an IPA for sure. It's not so much the extreme boldness and sharpness of hop flavors that you get in some IPAs, in this one it's the overall strength PLUS the variety. Every sip highlights new hop flavors. The grapefruit peel addition only makes it more bitter, this is QUITE a bitter and dry brew with no malt in sight. Surprisingly drinkable due to a smooth mouthfeel however. I've never had Buddha's Hand so I can't comment on that aspect but I assume it to be some sort of fruity flavor as this beer is chock full of fruitiness.
