This was a perfect beer for me. I've tried a few other grapefruit infused Ipa's/IIPA's and they didn't hold up to this. Unreal hop and grapefruit aroma/flavor and the perfect malt backbone to hold up to the bitterness. I really can't say enough about this beer. Get it, pour it, Enjoy.

Goes down smooth for a dipa. Good grapefruit taste as well.

Great DIPA. Malts and hops move in tandem, great grapefruit with a hint of pineapple on the finish. 120 ibus, but not a abhorrent piney resin bomb.

Wormtowns newest double ipa, this was brewed with ten plus hops including Amarillo, Centennial, Kohatu, Summit, and Simcoe. Near the end of the boil Buddha's hand and grapefruit peel was added. 120+ IBUs.

A - Poured into a standard snifter a nice hazy dark orange hue with a wonderful one finger thick and creamy white head that fades slowly to leave tons of side lacing and a thick sudsy blanket. Just excellent. Great appearance for a Wormtown.

S - Aromas of big tropical juice here with lots of light pineapple, subtle papaya, and mango. Great bitter grapefruit. Buddha's hand fruit comes out in the aroma as well, its own pithy tropical fruit aroma I've come to love in Chinese candies.

T - Taste is is a wash of hops all of which play very nicely together. Bitter pine, tropics, and faint malts are balanced nicely. I really like what each hop brings to the table. Deliciously bitter with Buddha hand peel coming out nicely in an almost chewy way. Very nicely integrated throughout the brew with the grapefruit peel really lingering on that and finish making a naturally bitter finish even more so. Again, excellent.

M - Mouthfeel is wonderful. Crisply carbonated keeps the alcohol from weighing this one down. That said its still a somewhat sipper as that 9.6% definitely hits good and hard.

O - Overall I really enjoyed this Wormtown offering. Hands down this is my second favourite new release they've had over the past 8+ months (Norm wins that category). A very delicious DIPA one of the best they've done. Definitely worth getting if one is in the area. Excellent.

Bottle. Buddha's Hand brewed Imperial IPA. I had to Googlewhat a Buddha's hand was. It's the creepiest fruit ever. The beer pours a turbid, burnt orange. The head is a thick, dense crown that generously leaves remnants of its existence along the glass. The aroma is flat out unique. It's gott be the Buddha's Hand, because I have never sniffed such as I quie aroma from an IPA or an Imperial IPA. I get whiffs of ginger, mint, eucalyptus, and aloe. It's such a strange initial scent. After that I get tropical fruit hops, some pepper (thanks Buddha) and dried citrus peel. The flavor isn't necessarily as unique as the nose but it remains a beautiful outlier in a style that is quickly losing originality. Smoked pineapple, bark and wood hops, peach and apricot and tangerine hops. Finishes with a neutral maltiness. I am one of the biggest Wormtown fans out there. So happy to see that they have grown with a new facility and such. I missed this beer the first time around and was bummed. Finally got a bomber of this and am damn impressed. This beer deserves more attention. Fantastic.
