4.58/5  rDev +19.6%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a chalice, orange amber colored with a tight white head that dissipates leaving some lacing, cloudy, few bubbles

S: piney oils, grapefruit, orange, bready malt, big on hops

T: citrus fruit up front, big grapefruit, hop flavor lingers, sweeter finish than expected, pine trees, good hops to malt balance

M: good carbonation with a medium to full body, not at all oily, 7.3% ABV well hidden

O: this is a great IPA from my home state, one of the only things I like coming out of Athens, my only advice on improving this beer would be to move the brewery to Atlanta to get it away from U(sic)GA, THWG

Ba Review #237
Served On: 11/16/2012
Glassware: Duvel Glass
Labeled ABV: 7.3%
Date/ Code: Week 3

This was from a case I found at Self Serve Beverage in York.

Look: Color was a super clear clemontine orange color. Carbonation bubbles were fairly steady. The head a white cap of tight white foam with nice lacing.

Smell: Super sweet aroma of mango and pine with some fresh-sliced orange mixed in.

Taste: The taste started off with a very sweet and resiny hop profile of tropical fruits and a nice floral freshness. The middle of the palate was sort of cleansed with the rush of a sweet alcohol note. The finish was a nice bitterness to add some balance. The aftertaste was of lingering fruits and fresh cut cucumber.

This was a very solid IPA with the hop profile of an Imperial. It had nice balance and was very enjoyable brew.

This pours a very hazy amber with almost no head, and minimal lacing. The nose is just about all fruit. I pick up apples, raisins, oranges, lemon, and some pine. Taste is a sweetness upfront kind of orange flavored, but the finish delivers a powerful hop bomb. Mouthfeel is nice with not much of an aftertaste. There are better IPAs, but this one is not bad. Taste is the strong suit and that's what matters most.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle I to a dfh snifter.... No bottle on date, but it says drink by the third week of January so I am assuming it must be closer to fresh then old. Although I have no idea how long of a code terrapin puts in these things.

A: pours a nice hazy orange amber with about half a finger if white head... Head dissapates quickly, leavs some lacing.

S: uh oh, the nose is very malty, there are some citrusy notes, but I'm not getting much hops here, I'm getting more caramel and bready malt aromas...

T: sadly not much different then the aroma, there is some citrus and light bitterness, but I am getting mainly bready and caramel malt flavors.

M: doesn't seem bad, medium body, with low medium carbonation, and what seems like it was meant to be a dry bitter finish.

O: I'm dissapointed, after all the good things I heard about terrapin, not that this is supposed to be their greatest release, but still. I feel as though this beer is past it's prime... And gas deffinatly lost mostly all it's hops.... Which leads me to two things.
1) terrapin puts much too long of a enjoy by code on their beer, with this supposedly having a good three months left of shelf life,
2) if this is a reasonable representation of the beers intended form then terrapin should deffinatly reformulate this one...
Either way it's too bad and I am dissapointed.
