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

The beer pours a nice golden with a decent but small white head. The aroma is of sharp with Rye, and a bit of floral hops. The taste starts with a full rye malt taste with a bit of dark fruits coming out in the sweetness of the middle, followed quickly by a nicely bitter hops finish. The feel is robust and wet, giving it a liquid bread quality that I like in a malty rye beer. This is a very nice example of a rye ale with a lot of malt, and nice use of the hops to compliment those qualities.

Terrapin Rye Pale Ale has a thin, white head, a semi-opaque, golden appearance, with lazy bubble streams and some light lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of white bread, sweetness, and some hop oils. Taste is of white bread crust, relatively low hop bitterness, and some light rye pepperiness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Terrapin Rye Pale Ale finishes semi-dry and easy drinking.
