one and a half finger of off white head sits atop a clear copper colored body. as it slowly recedes some lacing is left behind and a thin spotty cap on top is all that is left. smell and taste are both the same. they are filled with citrus and pine hops, with a bready malt body. mouthfeel is a little oily with decent carbonation and a medium body feel. a long dry finish leaves you wanting more of this easy drinking ipa. overall this is very drinkable, ingredients are subtle and blended well. nothing is overpowering in this beer.

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.

On-tap at the Brick Store.

Pours a clear light copper color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of pale malts with large amounts of herbal hops and lighter amounts of earthy and light citrus notes.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Moderately dry pale malt flavors kick things off and quickly give way to equal amounts of herbal and earthy hop flavors. Midway through the sip slight amounts of light citrus and leafy notes join in, carrying through to a solidly bitter and somewhat dry ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall this wasn't a spectacular beer but I thought it was well-balanced and did a nice job of showcasing earthy and herbal hop aromas and flavors. Worth a shot.

Poured from 22oz bottle. I think this one came from Bmoyer0301. I've traded so much as of recent I can't remember!

A- Pours a copperish color with some light orange highlights. One and a half finger white head shows light retention overall. Lacing on the sides of the glass was light and spotty.

S- Light piney hops in the front quickly get overcome by a caramel malt base. Alcohol is noticable in the ending along with earthy tones (mostly grassy). Plain and simple although I expected a lot more from a fresh hop beer.

T- Front of this beer is a one two combo of piney bitter hop bite with a follow through of grapefruit citrus hops. Nice upfront to this beer. The middle dies down exposing the caramel malt backbone to the beer. This in itself tastes more toasted than anything else which I found a little odd for this beer...expected more of a bready taste. Alcohol sneeks up for a split second on the ending which in turn gets covered by a light bitter hop bite.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the beer itself. Piney hops with a hint of caramel malt gets left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly alcohol and bitter hops that fade leaving it more of a warming alcohol. Medium drying on the palate from the alcohol. Flavors were well balanced for a fresh hop beer. No off flavors that I could spot in this one!

D- This beer was good. Nothing over the top which might have been its only downfall at times. Still a nice drinking lower ABV beer. Would love to try on a crisp fall day..now I bet that would be good!

Poured into a pint glass

A - Pours a dark orange-amber with a creamy off-white head. Nice retention and lacing.
S - Obviously there's a good amount of hops, but it's a bit more subdued then I would have guessed for a fresh-hopped beer. Spicy pine and grapefruit hops dominate with a slightly sweet caramel malt background.
T - More pine resin and grapefruit with a bit of tangerine and pineapple for good measure. Sweet caramel malt balances the bitterness a bit, but this is nicely hop-forward without being a hop-bomb.
M - Medium-bodied, slightly creamy. Nice, medium carbonation level, just right for this style.
D - Quite drinkable, this is a nice example of a fresh-hop beer. One of the best Terrapin offerings I've had lately, kudos guys!

a massive quantity of beer which was consumed at barleys tonight, this one started the whole night off. this one was consumed on 11/06/2010.

pour is a nice medium amber color with a very good clarity to it that allows a ton of carbonation to be visible from the very start. the result is a nice inch of white head that sticks to the sides of the glass very nicely,

aroma is nice fresh hops. sticky pine is the most dominant with a good bit of fresh resin filled grass notes bouncing around inside as well. really nicely balanced for a fresh hop ale. nice clean flavor as well, not overdone in any direction. clean fresh hops, sticky resin and a smooth and even biscuit flavor mid palate. nice lightly dry finish leaves a nice taste of pine on the tongue.

overall very drinkable and a very solid ipa.

Interesting story behind this one, my friend got it from a friend who works at Terrapin, and she doesn't like IPAs, so it fell into my possession. No complaints here.

Pours a reddish brown color with a decent white head that sits atop the beer for a minute before falling back down to earth. Decent lacing, too.

Fresh, piney-citrus hop aroma, maybe a little bit of maltiness thrown in there as well, but hops are the main character in this play.

Pretty well-balanced on the tongue... as in the nose, it starts out with the same pine-citrus conglomeration and eventually leads to a nice buttery biscuit malt flavor. Maybe I'd want it a little more hop forward, but it's not bad.

A body that's nearing medium with a moderate amount of carbonation leads to a smooth drinking beer with a fairly dry finish.

Overall, this was a pretty tasty beer from Terrapin and I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it. Good drinkability on this one, give it a try if you see it around.
