Poured vigorously into a 20-oz. snifter. Looks great- clear penny copper with a sticky printer paper-white head that lines the top evenly and nicely, less than 1/2". Nice effervescence all around the glass- constant and quick bubbles.

Smells orangey, lemony, sweet. Reminds me of the scent of Terrapin Monk's Revenge- I wonder if the hop blend is similar? More tropical and citrus than pine or earthy.

Taste is very similar to the smell, but with a great frothy mouthfeel to spread that citrusy, orangey hop all around. A very pleasant IPA, impeccably balanced. The flavors seem sweet, but the finish is nice and dry. It's not especially rich or sweet to drink, and the dryness lets the hops leave a nice bitter lining on your tongue.

I'm happy I grabbed a few Terrapins in Florida-- tough to find in MI, and impressive all around so far- loved the pale, Monk's, and this, and VERY excited to crack my Wake N' Bake!

Had this on 2012-03-16 in Lancaster, PA at Quips Pub

A - Clear, golden-orange with a 3/4-finger white head and moderate lacing.

S - Fresh oranges, yeast, hop floral, pale malt, light pine and light pineapple. Not overpowering but pleasant.

T - Orange flesh and rind, pale malt, moderately bitter. Aftertaste is sweet orange flesh, touch of pine and bitterness. The beer tasted better as it warmed.

M - Light body and bubbly and medium-high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing.

O - Very drinkable. Doesn't knock your socks off but it continues to please in a balanced way.

Purchased from Whole Foods Tampa for $1.99

App- A big dark orange with spotty brown caramel highlights. A small 1/2 finger head with some good sticky cling.

Smell- A ton of caramel, orange juice, hops and a bit of an olive oil note.

Taste- Big hops on this one but not overly bitter. Smooth and rich with touches of creamy caramel. Balanced out with rich and good piney citrus.

Mouth- A full medium body with a medium lush carbonation. A ton of orange and piney residual flavors.

Drink- A very good beer with big flavors and a good layering without being overly bitter as well.
