Much better beer than some of the ratings. Not nearly as hoppy as a hop head might hope but nonetheless a nice beer. Cloudy, unpasteurized body with a nice frothy head. Mild fruit on the nose. Hop presence but not overwhelming- all a matter of taste. Give it a shot.

Notes from 7/2012

Pours a clear iced-tea color with a very creamy head that absolutely covers the glass in lacing. Has a nice balance of malt and hops. Initially, it seems very malty, but the hops really come on strong midway through and last through the finish. A lot of citrus, but some pine on the finish. Some slight caramel and biscuit malt. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Pretty nice over all, but a bit too much malt for me.

Served on tap in a shaker pint glass

A - Copper clear amber with a 2 finger white head white great retention and moderate bubbly lacing.

S - grassy, pine, citrus, a touch of herbal hops

T - Pretty nice variety of hops notes, predominately citrus, with grapefruit, orange rind, a touch of grass and moderately bitter finish.

M - medium body, moderate carbonation. chewy, wet.

O - Pretty decent IPA, but nothing particularly stellar and fairly vanilla and seemingly boring compared to Buddha fairly unique style. Drinkable, but many better ipas out there.

A- Decently filtered golden liquid. Lots of lacing
S- Not getting a ton of aromatics off this... bit of pine
T- Hop forward...Pine and orange/grapefruit peel.
F- Medium - good carb
O- pretty good IPA. Well balanced, but will not be memorable. That being said, I would love this for an everyday IPA

Poured from tap at Funky Buddha into a Cigar City Snifter.

Color: A murky brownish-orange with an off white head.

Smell: Piney hops and grapefruit up front. Followed by mango and oranges.

Taste: Same as the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation and smppth with a light dryness on the palate.

Overall: There is a very nice sweetness in the middle. Well balanced with a medium body. A classic IPA nothing too crazy. Cheers.
