Well now that I've reviewed one of the big local IPAs (and trashed it), here is another one.

Slightly hazy copper, some head and lacing, but dissipates quickly. There is, however, something intriguing about the small amount of foam on top of the beer and the little web it forms, though; it's making me lick my lips even though the head and lacing are nothing special.

Smell: Hmm, this is wound very tightly for some reason; practically have to dip my nose into it to get much of anything. What's there is a combination fruity (orange?) and grassy that I like.

OK I like this quite a bit. The beer is disappearing fast. Something ragingly drinkable about this one. They've done a great job of blending everything together into a whole that's greater than the sum of its parts. Hard to tell the individual elements, but that's a good thing. It's very much a West Coast style, but not aggressive. Great fruity-hoppy-malty composite. Very professional work from Terrapin!

Bottle from codysjb. Thanks for the beers man!

From a bottle into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, looser looking, off-white head with good retention. Clear safety orange in color with lower levels of carbonation evident. Head fades to a full wisp and ring. A ring remains and leaves touches of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Caramel and pale malts, toffee and some honeydew melon. A milder nose that reminds me of an ESB to some degree. Not quite as hop forward as expected.

TASTE: Pale malts, caramel notes, with floral flavors and grainy hops at the swallow. Pine and bitterness with caramel and grassy hops linger in the bold aftertaste. Quite piney and bitter after the swallow, with lots of floral and grassy hops as well. Decent stuff, though doesn't really match the nose.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy enough on the palate, goes down smooth with a bit of a scratch and finishes slightly dry on the palate. Enough weight on this as well.

OVERALL: Not quite my style. Very hoppy for sure, but it's definitely on the grassy/piney side of the hop spectrum. The nose doesn't quite match what was to follow either. Still, this is a quality beer that I'd gladly drink again. Thanks again codysjb!
