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.

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.

Growler from the brewery. Pours clear amber color with white head. Citrus hop and caramel aromas. Grapefruit and pine flavors with a hint of grass and maltiness. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent.

glennmastrange (2255) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2014
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.

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

On tap at the Buddha. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Citrusy hop aromas. Light and crisp with citrus and grapefruit hop notes. Good body with nice malt backbone. Good mouthfeel and body. Nice.

sloshgator (426) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2014
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!

ThirstyBird (1564) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2014
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.
