3.98/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottle into Sam Smith Imperial pint.

Pours deep copper, clear with nice reddish-amber highlights. Head is small, thin, soapy, though persistent in what it is. Bit of nice lacing. My usual notch bump due to overvaluation of appearance.

Nose is nice combination of floral, pungent hops, a bit piny, big fruitiness, firm caramel body underneath offers a balancing sweetness. Esthery alcohol brings out the fruitiness even more.

Taste follows step for step - whoa-big fruitiness meshes up with what citrus there is in the hops, bit candied, along with the piny bitterness and mild pungency, with the caramel coming through with (again) a firm sweetness underneath. Finish starts out sweet, lightly pungent, floral, more lingering fruitiness. Alcohol more prominent than usual for the style, really brings that fruitiy quality to the front. A really interesting beer - not at all true to the American IPA style, and not the usual fare for most American-style Harvest Ales also. This, to me, is much closer to an English-style IPA (or even ESB) with a smattering of American ingredients. Still, quite pleasant, if miscategorized.

Mouthfeel is medium-light in body,mid carbonation with very little bite; again works well for what I would consider an English-style ale, and a tasty one at that. Just a bit sticky.

Drinkability is, for me, excellent. Beautiful balance, well put-together for what it is. I found this one to match up to my own personal tastes fairly well, but I also know how poorly this has fared when being rated as an America IPA. Either way, nice take on the style that's just outside-the-box enough to be quite interesting.

2.36/5  rDev -35.9%
look: 4 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

I feel like I am being overly generous with my review of this obviously apparent heavy malt backbone "ipa" seeing that it is only slightly hoppier than most british IPA's. The smell is extremely lacking in an IPA that I would suggest nor imbibe religiously while the taste is like that of a false nutty caramel. Overall, very disappointed with this 'ipa' from what I have come to expect from Terrapin Brewing.
