12 oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. Best before month 5 notched.

Pours a hazy orange- light copper color with a skim, yet retentive off white head, big bubbles. Spotty lacing.

Not the big hop aroma I was hoping for. Grapefruit citrus and pine resin. A bready, light caramel malt is right there.

A better taste than the aroma. Dry, slightly sharp grapefruit citrus, pine resins. A big bready, slightly caramalized malt balances things out. Finishes with a sharp lingering hop bitterness.

Slightly heavier side of medium bodied. Adequate carbonation.

Fell a little below my expectations. Maybe better fresh. Hops tasted and smelled quite faded overall.

12 oz. bottle into Terrapin Pint

A: Poured with a nice head that stays for a bit but fizzles to a film with a large section of bubbles. The lacing is quite nice too. It is a slightly cloudy golden amber color.

S: Quite citrusy with a bit of pine intermingled. It is a pretty nice smell, but it kind of reminds me of a stout smell for some reason.

T: Not the best tasting out there. There is a mild citrus note that is overpowered by the pine in it. I remember it being more citrus-y on tap.

M: Pretty crisp all the way through but it is still quite mild.

O: I feel like there is either something wrong with these beers or with my palate today. I had this at a Terrapin event but it was just a sample. I remember it tasting better. Luckily, a friend gave this to me. Their Hopzilla is much better. Still not a bad IPA, but it is one of the lesser IPAs I have had.
