4/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Serving Type - Bottle
Appearance - Pineapple orange, light tan. Creamy 1 inch head and some nice sticky lacing.
Smell - Hops, hop oil, orange, pine, lemon, grapefruit, spices. Not as strong hop strong as i remember the side project 22oz version.
Taste - Major hop bite at first sip. Very grapefruity, orange/tangerine. Big caramel backbone comes in near the finish. Spices add some flavors, im sure theres some corriander and lemon peel added in. Alcohol is present, and adds some warmth.
Mouthfeel - Soon as hopzilla hits mouth, it wrecks it, that simple. Huge hops, big malts and plenty of booze hit tounge, and palette and work it all over. Aftertaste is hoppy, alcohol warmed, and malty.
Overall - What a monster. I had a whole case of this when it was a side project in 22 oz bottles and loved it. Very good still, but i think Its not quite as citric hoppy and a little more malty now. Still very good, but its overpriced. Hop fans will enjoy this, its one of the better dipa's out there, just not as good as it once was.

4.48/5 rDev +11.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
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
