look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

Pours a clean orange-ish to yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, fresh, sweet, and pine like hops. In the taste, a sweet fresh hop, pine like and almost minty, with a dry end. A hop bite and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry,, fresh hop aftertaste. Nice big fresh hop, almost too fresh with minty burn, quite nice though.

Good fresh hop IPA!!! Pours a clear copper color with a nice sized white head, good retention and good spotty lacing.

Smell of floral hops

Tastes very good. Floral and piney hops with just enough malt to keep it from being a totally unbalanced hop bomb.

Mouthfeel is rich and crisp, The fresh hop oiliness is very evident.

Drinkability is very good. I could drink a lot more of this

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: Smelled of floral hops and some citrus.

T: Tasted of hops, citrus, and a bit of malt in the finish. A solid flavor, but hardly groundbreaking.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a slick, oily finish. Medium-bodied.

D: A decently drinkable IPA.
