Cloudy golden pour with a thick foamy white head. Beautiful lacing. Love this beer, the nose is it's only fault- a smidge flat. I definitely smell heavy apricot when pouring the beer, but I get little else. Taste and mouthfeel are perfect. Nice carbonation, not too sharp. Incredibly refreshing taste- too easy to drink for a 7%er.

Thanks Kelly! This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt yet transparent glossy orange color. One finger white foamy head dissipates immediately. Messy sticky lacing. The smell takes on sweet apricot, mango, honeydew and melon sliding over top of a light sweet to bitter grassy hoppiness. Light caramel malt underneath. The taste was mainly sweet with bitter grassy hoppiness coming in nicely. Quick bitter grassy aftertaste but a sweet citrus/apricot finish. On the palate, sits about a light to medium on the body. Sweet smooth feel on my tongue, different for an AIPA, but I like it. Overall, damn nice AIPA, I’d definitely have this again.

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.
