12oz bottle traded to me by G311. thanks again Vince! drank from my samuel adams perfect pint glass.
A- this one pours out a hazy orange colored body with some serious copper highlights. the head on top is a solid finger and is beige colored. moderate retention and sticky rings get left on the sides of my glass.
S- very heavy on the malted rye. nice and spicy. honey and biscuit malts. citric (grapefruit, orange, and lemon), floral, and spicy hops at the end.
T- the taste starts out with with biscuit and bread like malts. a little bit of caramel malts come through and add in a little sweetness. the spicy rye malts come through strong. decently malty upfront, but dont be fooled. this is a DIPA at heart. very strong on the hops. grapefruit, orange zest, lemon peel, floral, and spicy notes. way more complex than the original rye pale ale.
M- this is a syrupy full bodied ale. the carbonation is moderate. nicely bitter without being overpowering. the alcohol is well hidden.
O- a very enjoyable and pretty large rye IPA. this is something id drink more of if it were available here. terrapin is a solid brewery that needs more attention.
