Crusher IPACrusher IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Funky Buddha Brewery
Florida, United States
funkybuddhabrewery.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We heart session beers. There's nothing quite like whiling away an afternoon with a six pack of something crisp, clean, and light enough to walk away from when the job is done. But we also demand flavor -- hops at that, and the more the better. Meet the Crusher: this poundable session IPA is brewed with 2-row barley and a touch of caramel malt for depth, accented with loads and loads of late-addition hops. Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops provide an IPA-sized dose of intensely fruity, citrusy hop aroma without an overly bitter finish. This is the IPA bar stools were invented for.

Pours a straw color with some white head that faded quickly into a thin collar. Good lacing though. Aroma is watery caramel, floral and earthy hops. Taste is about the same. Definitely thinner than most session IPAs. Low-medium carbonation and very light body.

Fairly forgettable. Nothing special about it, and in the blend of better local IPA's this one get's left behind. I'll definitely pick it if it's the only local/craft option, but definitely won't go out of my way to get it.

On tap at the Buddha. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy orange body. Nice white head and pretty stick lacing.

Smell - Grapefruit and orange. Grainy malt. Nice.

Taste - Grapefruit more prominent. Musty pine hop flavor. Slight graininess and a resiny bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Light. Crisp. Bitter, but sessionable.

Overall - Simple beer, tasty but simple.
