I absolutely love this beer. It is one of the best that Terrapin makes and I've tried many of their beers. This is an approachable IPA - not too much of a hop-blast to turn off those new to IPAs, but enough to keep me happy. Their other beer, kind of like DFH, are variations of hop-heavy brews, but this one is a pure, unadulterated, clean, drinkable IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured from bottle to pint glass with a one finger white head, beer is a nice amber color with a slight orange tint.

S: Smell is very citrusy with a light sweet note.

T: Light caramel malt front with a large citrus and pine hop back

M: Medium bodied with nice carbonation, very dry finish.

O: A nice beer to pick up on the fly but not something I would personally go out of my way to seek out.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: pours golden brown that elicits just a bit of transparency. the head is cream white color and also creamy in its appearance. and the lacing is quite nice.

S: really not getting much on the aroma here and I am really having to pull for this. lemons, malt, and pine. ???

T: glad to see that there is something to this brew because the smell wasn't there. subtle citrus notes, some malt, piney hops, there is a unique sugar candy sweetness here too. at 7.3%, the alcohol is extremely well hidden

M: medium bodied, leaves a nice bitterness with a slight citrus profile on the palate.

O: the bottle description couldn't be more wrong in my opinion. as this one is very plain and doesn't give me that "hophead" feeling. i will say that the 7.3% is extremely well hidden and i find this one pretty drinkable. overall though, i want a beer to at least resemble its description, and i feel cheated on this one.
