3.73/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a 7venth Sun snifter.

A: Deep copper and nearly clear, with a half-finger's worth of off-white head and moderate visible carbonation.

S: Caramel and bready malts, sweetness in moderation, a touch of toffee and some booze heat. Less resinous sticky hops, some grass and hints of caraway.

T: Malt sweetness (biscuity and caramel), rye spiciness, resin sappy hops, grassy hops, and finishes with lingering malt sweetness and tingly hop bitterness.

M: Medium body for style, average carbonation sensation. The alcohol heat is noticeable, but doesn't rise to the level of being a distraction.

O: Not a bad "Triple IPA" as these things go, but not a favorite of mine. The rye character isn't as prominent as I'd expect, and the hops actually play second fiddle to the huge malt bill. A recipe with promise, but one that I'd prefer to be tweaked.

3.2/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Undated bottle 2014 vintage at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma malted grain, no hops
Head large (5 cm), off white, creamy with rocks, very slowly diminishing to irregular layer at least 4 mm thick which blends with the lacing
Lacing very good; thick, wide rings with mostly small bubbles
Body medium orange, clear
Flavor very malty, moderately sweet; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl, no rye spicyness
Palate medium to full, oily, soft carbonation

An odd brew. This is supposed to be an IPA with a heavy rye backbone but hops are absent in both the aroma and taste. Since the bottled is undated, age could certainly be a factor.

3.94/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (Vintage 2014, 6/10/2015 best by date I assume. 14172-[1A]?)

A: Crystal clear ruby amber body with almost no lacing, a wisp of bubbles constituting the leftovers of a head.

S: Lots of sweet malt with that noticeable tang of rye on the side. I don't get a lot of hops outside a resinous sweetness.

T: Rye for the most part with a sweetness throughout it. Delicious but the rye is really paired with the malt, having only the rye beat it out by a bit. It is quite sweet which may put some off, but I find it to be pretty great. The alcohol in here is blended in right with the rye and sweetness of it. A bit of a resinous aftertaste, but it isn't too sticky, not lingering long.

M: Smooth with a bit of a sharp bite to it.

O: This is quite delicious and a big beer. Good stuff from Terrapin again. Love me some rye beers, especially Rye IPAs.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured out of my bottle into a belgian glass to see this beer's copper color and nice lacing;

The nose is resinous and woodsy;

Taste is malty sweetness with a touch of spice and a lasting finish. Can't necessary pick up the high gravity aspect in the taste, but the sweetness indicates that it's likely.

Tasty beer overall.
