3.75/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Found these in four packs at our local whole foods store. Enjoying as I type this served up in the classic red solo cup. chilled into the 50 degree mark in the fridge.

A: Pours nicely even into plastic. The monster level alcohol negates a lot of the frothy cream head. Head retention is practically nil as it settles into a white dust of bubbles around the periphery of the cup. The beer body is bright orange/brown hued and crystal clear.

S: Smells of over-ripe melon mixed with soy sauce and orange rind. Aroma does battle with the boozey alcohol with balance, not dominance.

T: I'm biased as i'm a fan of big gravity beers. Hopzilla has noticeable citrus hops up front and is only slightly bitter. For fellow IPA lovers, you won't notice the bitter in this one and it's perhaps a good beer for bridging your non-IPA friends over to something a little stronger. Lots of liquid malt and slight sting of astringent from the alcohol leaves for a clean earthy aftertaste.

M: Drinks well although you will feel the burn of the alcohol level. Modestly carbonated to go down easier. Probably would've preferred this one a little colder temperature-wise.

O: Great effort by Terrapin to bring a big IPA to the local Atlanta market. Not for everyone, the alcohol content could be off-putting to lightweights.
