An exceptional IIPA. The buddha's hand fruit gives this beer a unique citrus aroma and flavor. Dark orange in color and very hoppy. One of my favorites.

Hard beer to find, pumped to have the Buddha. Nice beer alittle to piney sweet for me, but nice citron blast to finish not at all bitter.

From a 12oz. bottle, dated 01/26/16, served in an oversized tulip.

Pours a deep, dark orange with about a finger and a half of soda-like foam. The head subsides quickly, leaving a ring of suds and very little lacing.

Smells of pineapple, lemon peel and fresh straw, vanilla, spice and lime.

There's a good, strong bready malt presence right up front, followed promptly by the pineapple juice, grapefruit and pine. The juiciness of what I'm tasting as pineapple, presumably the Buddhas hand, nearly verges on being overpowering but is rescued in the nick of time by a nice, sharp, resinous bitterness that lingers on the palate.

Medium bodied and well-carbonated.

I typically dislike, if only on principal, beer that has had fruit added to it. I bought a single bottle of Buddha's Juice (for ticking purposes, you understand) and now I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy them all. I can see myself happily drinking myself insensible with a pile of empty bottles clanking around my ankles.

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...

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.

On-tap 1/17/2016 at Natty Greene’s Tavern in North Attleboro, MA, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a dark amber color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains earthy hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with an earthy hops bitterness that is quickly followed by some sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. The malt character is hearty and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, good kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid beer but there are several other 2IPA’s that I would choose first.

Overall, lots of husky malt and leafy, resinous hops. Orangish with a little head. It is roundly malty and medicinally bitter. Medium body. A little boozy, but not terrible. Pretty decent, I'd love to try it really fresh.
