3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden DIPA with a thin white head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with pungent floral piney hops, light treacle, pleasant. In mouth, a rather sweet cloying caramel malt with fruity esters, tropical fruit, pink grapefruit, floral hops, ... Unfortunately, the initial sweetness is jarring. On tap at Brew Hub Lakeland.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at First Magnitude. Murky orange gold pour. Stale dead hops and some biscuity malts on the nose. Flavor follows that closely, with a dry bitterness. This was awfully disappointing, and I hope the keg has just been sitting around a while or something. Otherwise, poor effort by FB.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Dixie. Copper pour with a white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. All kinds of tangy grapefruit hop notes. A bit unbalanced but by far the best IPA by the Buddha. Good mouthfeel, with a good body, and balance.

Just sorta there as DIPAs with this hop profile go, the tropical fruitiness, grapefruit pith, these things show up but aren’t nearly as prevalent as in Crusher, a lighter and more drinkable beer. I dunno. Definitely "good" but not nearly great.
