This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

"The Terrapin Hop Karma IPA (formerly known as the India Style Brown Ale) is a head on collision between a hoppy, west coast IPA and a complex, malty brown ale. Brewed with 5 varieties of hops and 7 different malts, this hybrid style represents the best of both worlds." 65 IBU

Judging by others who reviewed this beer, my guess is that mine is old.
I didn't get any hop aroma or taste.
In the aroma i did pick up hints of chocalate. In the taste it was alittle more complex with chocolate and anise and molasses.
The bottle had a notch that said good to at least April 14, I don't know.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Acquired in a trade.

A- Pours a light muddy brown body with a small off-white head that reduces quickly. Leaves little lacing.

S- Caramel, nutty, toffee, some pine and resin.

T- Starts off pretty malty with bread, caramel, brown sugar notes. The finish is a muted hoppiness - some pine. Rather dull.

M- Medium-light body, not much carbonation.

Meh, it was alright. Maybe it sat in my fridge a little too long, but the flavor and character was just lacking here.
