Pour: A thick hazy, amber and by thick i mean even floating particulates. head forms and breaks down but lacing remains steady throughout.
Nose: malt comes off as creamy and leads right into orangey, grapefruit, lemon grass, spice and mineral notes are strong. very, enticing. like a siren beckoning lesser mariners to their doom!
Mouth: the malt in this monster is actually a bit softer than a another comparable double(maharaja). med-heavy body, thick mouth feel with a bit of sweetness from the malt at the beginning that gives way to the plethora of hops. the soapy character pops up in the middle and doesn't provide the 'undesirable' finish that many who aren't cut out for real IPAs like this one would complain about. fruity and hoppy throughout with a lightly creamy finish with hints of spice and mineral notes. almost no grassy lingering notes.
FRICKIN' awesome. if your in it's vicinity .... get it! i don't believe you'll be disappointed, this is one of the tastiest offering from terrapin to date, the real question is why most of what they brew isn't of as an exceptional quality as this delicious monster

This is an exquisite DIPA with hops that are almost tropical in nature. The malt is slightly sweet and backs up the mammoth hops nicely. I like this best in a pinot noir glass to get the full benefit of the aromatic hops. Though it has a high alcohol content, it is well hidden in the taste profile. My hopes are that terrapin will make this a regular offering. It is one of their best side projects to date.

Comes out of the tap a beautiful hazy golden amber with a fairly thick, fine-bubbled white head. Epic aroma is hoppy in the extreme - it is like smelling a freshly cut pine tree. Flavor is as hoppy as a bullfrog on angel dust, and has hints of grapefruit and orange. Double IPA, hell - this is more like a quadruple IPA! Edgy, ragged texture is quite fizzy and leaves a hoppy and citrus finish. If you like hoppy beers, this one is for you!
