Good solid AIPA. Pours a very hazy dull honey gold color with a good size white head. Head retention is good and there is plenty of lacing on the glass. Aroma and taste include strong citrus hops (mostly grapefruit) and both bready and caramel malt. The hops dominate but the malt provide some balance. The level of bitterness is very good. This is a hop-heads beer. Mouthfeel is rich for an IPA, based on the malt balance with good hoppiness/bitterness. Funky Buddah is right up there with Cigar City as far as IPAs go!!.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Clear amber/orange with a thick off white head.

Smell: A little faint, some honey and citrus.

Taste: A light citrus flavor, sour like grapefruit. Finish with a little sweet honey.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation.

Overall: Good IPA, nothing too crazy, but easy to drink.

Like this brewer - about the only craft at Miami beach hotels.
a) Medium totally hazed, honey-amber with off-white head that's modest in retention and lace.
s) Too faint compared with the flavor bomb that is this beer. The flavor of honey and toasted grain overlain with dank, grassy, pot-like hops.
t) The taste opens with the caramels intertwined with the dank hops and the peppery Germanic hops. Very fruitful and scrubbing with a sharp bitter finale. Leaves you in a good place.
f) Medium IPA body, the malty balance with the peppery and dank hops is a winner. Good heft and finish.
o) As good a popular Miami craft as you might want.

Look: dark amber color, looks like a dark lager. Pours a thick head that sticks around
Smell: very hop forward smell with honey and citrus notes as well
Taste: the first thing you notice is that it has a strong honet sweet taste that is very pleasent, it has almost no hop bite.
Feel:soft mouth feel, right amount of carbonation
Overall: this is a good ipa, coming from new England this is a crisp and refreshing ipa
