4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at brewery. Nose is straight up danky. String citra and beyond type of hop. Refreshingly light palate, minimal sweetness. This is a great pale ale. Probably two to three times as much hops as a pale ale from a year ago. Definitely over the top and double yummy.

Draft at Churchkey during DC Craft Beer Week. Thanks to solidfunk. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma was some light citrus notes, touch of pine, armpit? Flavor was light pine, armpit sweat, not my favorite, but easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Moderate malt aromas of roasted and caramel, harsh hops of pine and turpentine, moderate soap for the yeast, with slovent, medicine and faint dried fruit in the background. Head is small, creamy, white with good slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear medium amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a tart finish. This Session IPA is just a little hampered by the harsh hop profile.

Funky Buddha Crusher has the fresh delicious goodness of Citra hops. Aromatic nose of tropical fruit coming from an amber pour with just the right head. More tropical fruit flavors in the taste with a hint of pine and only a mild bitter finish. Crusher goes down easy and lingers on the palate. Give it a try; its great!

On tap at the brewery in February. Pours golden yellow with a slight haze and an off-white head. The smell is fruity hops, mild malt. The taste is mild hops though fruity with a slight bitterness. Light body and nicely carbonated. Not a great session IPA, a bit muted but OK.
