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.

Every year when this comes out, I am sure to grab as many growlers as humanly possible before it goes away. The Hands of Buddha fruit are very tough to get, and thus it's only released mid to late winter each year. This stuff is amazing. From the smell, to the first taste to the finish, a solid-solid brew. Make sure to grab some if you have a chance to try some.

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.

a limited yearly release...this one is unique in both it's nose and taste...brewed with Buddah's Hand and Grapefruit rind...very zesty and bright but not bitter which was unexpected...dangerously drinkable for it's 9.5% ABV...

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.

The smell of citrus fruit and pulp is pleasant and distinct. The Buddha's hand fruit is definitely unique and is such an odd looking fruit. I've never seen one in person before today when I checked out one that was on the bar while waiting for my growler to be filled. This beer is great tasting and very dangerous as the high ABV is nicely hidden; the malt balances the hops well leading to a surprisingly well balanced IIPA. This is a juicy, sweet beer and has a sticky mouth feel that may be off-putting for some people. Overall, this is one fine beer and one that I'll seek out again. The problem is that this area has a lot of competition in the juicy IIPA category and I had to drive past one of if not the best brewers of east coast IIPA's to get this fresh (TH). First world problems though!

12 oz. bottle dated 01/12/17

Pours hazy amber orange with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like candied grapefruit, papaya, orange citrus, melon, berry, buddha's hand, some caramel malts, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like candied grapefruit peel, papaya, orange citrus, melon, berry, buddha's hand, some caramel malts, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a really nice DIPA with grapefruit peel and buddha's hand.
