Bomber bottle with more great Pinkerton artwork, but no sign of the old turtle. Just hops workers wearing lots of bling. No freshness dating noticed, served in a DFH glass.
A - Beautiful amber in color, brilliantly clear, lots of active carbonation rises from the bottom. Small white head fades quickly leaving little in the way of lace.
S - Pineapple, lemon, and citrus hops slap in the face. Just a hint of bubblegum sweetness in the finish. Very enjoyable.
T - Initial hops bitterness gets your attention without being harsh. Little in the way of malt, only enough to showcase the loads and loads of fresh hops goodness in this one. There are notes of pine sap, citrus, and earth in the hops flavor. So much flavor from the hops you'd expect 8+ percent abv, but this one packs them in with a much lower and drinkable 6.6... A bomb of a hop bill squeezed into an American IPA malt body.
M - Medium bodied, good palate scrub from the carbonation with a clean finish. You will belch pine for 30 minutes, but it's great!!
D - This one, for what it is, is exceptionally high. A bomber of this doesn't wreck your palate or your senses with booze. I may come off as a Terrapin employee with my reviews, but these guys and girls have this beer thing figured out in Athens, GA.

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.
