32oz growler from Moondog Growlers (Marietta, GA). Served in a Southern Tier tulip snifter.
Pours a deep murky amber with 2 fingers near white gead. Little lacing.
Nice mixture of piney and grapefruit hops in the nose. Mangos, oranges, grapefruit and spice pine. Quite inviting.
Big bold bitter hops! Grapefruit, pine, peppery spice, mango and ample booze bite. The alcohol burn is there start to finish but doesn't distract from the great hop flavors.
Medium thick with moderate carbonation. Nice oily feel with a long bitter dry aftertaste.
Overall another well done beer from Terrapin. It has the nice body from malts but without that almost signature biscuity taste I've come to expect from DIPAs. It drinks a bit hotter than most but you can't be too surprised given over 10% abv. It's not the best but it's worth a try. I certainly plan to drink more.
Serving type: growler
