Clear copper colored with surprisingly small head. Not a lot of lacing. Smell has citrus, pine, and some grassy notes...but not a very strong smell at all. Again, surprised by that. (Maybe this bottle isn't very fresh?) Taste is bitter forward hops with piney-citrus notes. Finishes very clean. I like this beer a lot and would not turn it down, but somehow it was a little bit "less" than what I expected. To me, it seems very balanced (more of a pale ale), and not what I would consider a "hophead" beer. But, hey...pale ale's are my favorite style, so that's okay with me. A true "hophead" may want a bit more though.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of citrus and hops. Taste is good, big hops up front, lots of citrus, a good malt balance, considerable bitterness. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a beer worth seeking out.

Served up at Marlowe's in Atlanta.
Apeears to be a typical IPA on the way with thick white head but a little less than expected thickness for something this hoppy.
Kind of light compared to the taste. Light citrus, hop and a little grainy.
Tastes like an IPA with not as much of a weedy and hempy character. Very citrusy, orange, lemon, tangerine. More of the malt comes through as well.
Crisp, refreshing, and drinkable due to the fruitiness of the taste vs a more striking, dry, piney hop of the Pac NW.
Good overall.

A: A dark golden hue, a nice bit of head at the top that leaves just a bit of lacing around the glass.

S: Floral and piney up front, lots of hops, the name says it all, a slight hint of hops at the tail end.

T: just like the nose, lots of hops all over, earthy, grapefruits and malts with slight hint of brown sugar as well.

M: Mid carbonation and medium bodied.

O: A nice IPA from Terrapin, nothing to crazy, a good balance for an IPA.

Ale pours a deep gold color with barely an inch of head. Some lacing down the pint glass. Pleasant aroma of tropical fruits, taste has a burst of hops balanced with malt. Finishes pleasantly bitter with smooth aftertaste with slight alcohol burn. Very smooth and drinkable at 7.3 ABV. Watch out it catches up with you!

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!
