Dark orange brew. Hazy. Dense-looking. Quarter of an inch of white head. Held there in check.

Grapefruit and pine hops, drier than standard imperial red fare. Toffee, booze, and lots of sappy dank hops. Great nose. A little sweet.

Semi-sweet and sappy dank pine hops, notes of cooked grapefruit, caramel, toffee, blood orange, and alcohol. Even sweeter as it warms. Almost raisin-y, in the way that the dark fruits offer more sweetness. Toasty and hoppy, but not off-the-chain.

Softly carbonated. Thick syrupy body. Filled-out. Still a lot of booze in the mouth.

Good DIPA. Not outstanding, just good.

Terrapin : Hopzilla

Eye: Clear copper color, white filmy head. Leaves some spotty lace.
Nose: Pine and citrus hops with some candied orange and fusel alcohol especially as it warms slightly. Bright hops and alcohol.
Tongue: Citrusy hops, firm maltyness and a good presence of alcohol. Faint caramel, biscuit and pine flavor are intertwined.
Mouth: Medium to full bodied on the palate with a stinging carbonation and hop bite drying the beer out slightly.
Mind: Good beer, when cold it is sublime, as it warms it gets a little pushy. Still a top notch double IPA. Any lupulin fans will enjoy this.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- A hazy amber copper color with almost no head.

S- Grapefruit, tropical fruits, some resin and pine.

T- Again tropical fruits and grapefruit, pine, biscuity malts, some earthy spices, some alcohol, not very bitter.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- A solid sweeter DIPA. Would probably pick this up again, but doesn't stand out too much.
