A: Deep reddish brown in color, with a light tan head.

S: Lovely hop aroma. Tropical fruits, orange peel, and grapefruit.

T: Hoppy goodness with a wonderfully deep bread flavor. Hops come out in tropical flavors, with tangerine notes, and perhaps a touch of onion. Slight spice note in the finish

M: Medium in body, with moderate carbonation. A good bit of lingering bite in the finish.

O: Overall a damn tasty beer. Fine work.

12 oz can into a chilled pint glass. Light amber brown color. Picturesque. Aromas of hops, citrus and rye. Mild on all counts. Pleasant. Almost tea like. Extremely smooth and clean. No nasty pine bite back. Mild upfront a little hoppy on the back end. Again, tea like. Lemon and hops. Could drink several and that is saying a hell of a lot for me as I usually dislike ipas. Well done.

3/10/15 (Draft - The Laughing Man) - Nice dark brown pour, tan head and mild carbonation. Pleasant hops, grass and citrus aroma. Strong taste and feel, the hops are very good, the taste a unique blend of grass, rye, with a strong lemon and slight citrus taste. Smooth going down. A very good beer!

A: Light brown with reddish hue to it, 1 inch off whit head, good lacing

S: Good amount of floral hop smell with the sweet rye malt in the background

T: Very tame fruity to floral hop bitterness up front balanced by sweet malty taste next, slight astringent aftertaste

M: Medium with good carbonation

O: One of my new favorites, but I tend to like an IPA with plenty of malt sweetness and this one has plenty of that. Terrapin continues to impress.

Pretty disappointing. The worst offering I've had from Terrapin.

Unfortunately, this is another disappointment from Terrapin. I was hoping for a beer to show case the mosaic hops, but all I taste is muddled rye/malt. The date on the box is illegible but their website shows a limited spring release, so how old could it possibly be?
