[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a murky medium golden orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that steadily receded down to a few small puddles of residue and a medium collar with good sheets of lacing.
The aroma was somewhat subdued, with a mild grain malt, floral and citrus hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange).
The taste started lightly sweet with a hint of caramel, but quickly became moderately hoppy with a bitter citrus peel presence and a decent alcohol tinge towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration proceeding the swallow with a bitter citrus alcohol taste left to linger on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just past half way between light and medium in body with a dry and slightly syrupy texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall I found this Double IPA to be rather tasty without having any overpowering aspects. The light malty sweetness along with a moderate bitterness did a superb job of concealing the high ABV, and left this brew with an exceptional drinkability...

Appearance - a nice darker orange color with not a big head. Wish it were a little bigger but oh well.
Smell - man the smell of this beer was phenomenal, I actually said wow when I smelled it. Citrus and hops off the bat. Very good
Taste - this tasted almost as good as it smelled. Very easy to drink, smooth with noticeable carbonation. This is a pretty hoppy beer, I find it much more enjoyable than terrapin's hopsecutioner. I wish this had a little more bitterness tho
Mouthfeel - smooth. Very easy to drink
Overall - very good beer. Exactly what you'd want on a summer night, super refreshing and tasty. Well done terrapin.
Serving type: on-tap
