Sent to me in a trade (Thanks Kevin!)
Pours a very very dark red. Almost brown/copper color. Very thin white head that goes away fast.
Smells of raisins and other dark fruits with some sweet malt/caramel. Very little hop profile in the nose as malts dominate.
Taste is very malt forward. For something called Big Hoppy Monster the hops are nowhere near the malts on this. More raisins and sweet caramel in the taste. Almost a profile of more of a slightly hoppier Belgian than an American red.
Mouthfeel is a little bit low considering the sweetness of the brew. Carbonation levels are med-low.
Really kind of disappointed in this. It's not bad, but I'd expect something with this name to be considerably hoppier than it is and not a fan of the dark fruit profile. I've got some other Terrapin brews that I hope I'll like better.
