Picked this up in Totowa last week, having never had this before. Most of their beers were quite good but something was amiss with this one. Even though it was fresh and good until July of this year, It felt a bit too weak and watery without being notable when it came to the taste or mouthfeel.

This had a dark pour to this - much more so than I would has expected, as the ruddy reddish-brown hue was not quite clear. Not a thick head to this and the carbonation was more present in the taste than to the eye. Some tropical fruits in the nose with a lot of rye and caramel malt behind it in the taste. Both of those didn't linger long as the mouthfeel felt quite watered-down and the hops only came out a bit in the aftertaste. Was this skunked? Probably not but it almost tasted that way and the IPA just seemed to be missing from all of this once I finished it and let it sink in.

There's a slight alcohol presence here but nothing that blew me away in terms of taste or strength. While not a bad beer, this was underwhelming and with so many IPA's out there, the only distinctive aspect to this beer was the rye. While not grainy, there could have been more "bite" to this and had there been, I would have enjoyed it much more so. It's fine to try once but certainly not the best of what Terrapin currently brews.

This was a pretty good brew, but it was past it's "best by" date, and I am beginning to see that IPAs are better when they are as fresh as possible. It wasn't bad, just wasn't living up to all it could be, IMHO.

I'd like to try a fresh one for comparo some day.
