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 Citra hops. The hops provide an IPA-sized dose of intensely fruity hop aroma without an overly bitter finish.

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!

4 oz sample draft at the brewery in Oakland Park, Florida. The pour is a hazed gold yellow with great lace left behind on the taster glass. The aroma is a fresh, great dank resin. All about the hops. The taste is the dank resin hops throughout, balanced a bit with cracker malt backbone. Really fresh taste. The palate is light bodied, though the unfiltered mouthfeel gives a nice heft that these low alcohol IPA’s rarely have. Super easy to drink. Really nice, one of the best I have had of this style.

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. ---Rated via intercellular device

Golden in color with good head retention. Noise is citrus and sweet. Citra hops linger on the back of the tongue.

Des massives notes de pêches et de fruits très mûr avec une amertume dissipée qui laisse les sucres bien en place. Pas très complexe mais se boit comme un jus.

Sampled at Funky Buddha. Got a little sample just to see how this bad boy turned out. Nice hoppy floral aroma mixed with a tad bit of grapefruit. The flavor and body however were surprising light. This would have to be one of the easiest drinking sessionable IPA’s I’ve tried in a long time. A good showing here.

Une IPA légèrement orangée qui présente une mousse pleine de ténacité. Au nez, elle exhibe de longs parfums houblonnés de citronnelle, de fleurs et de marijuana. La base maltée est construite par des grains toastés bien croustillants. En bouche, les houblons sont en très grande forme. L’intensité des fleurs et du pamplemousse fait le grand bonheur de mes papilles. Les céréales légèrement grillés ont un impact court mais nécessaire. Au palais, le corps laisse une impression de légèreté. Les bulles sont petites et explosives. La texture ne souffre pas du faible pourcentage d’alcool. La finale est extra sèche, un peu rugueuse mais totalement sur le style. Une bière très facilement aimable et surtout très facile à boire

I love how light and fluffy this beer Os. The hops really shine but not in a stomach churning overly bitter way. Like a hopped blonde. Quite desirable and sessionable.

Draft. Gold pour, small white head. Little retention/lace. Aroma of citrus, orange peel, lemon, cracker. Taste is moderately bitter, tropical/lemon hop, cracker. Palate is soft, light, refreshing, light bitter finish. Very good.
