bomber poured into a pint glass

A - super clear, medium golden, well-carbonated producing a nice head, solid lacing

S - citrusy hops, but not nearly as overpowering as I was expecting; smells a touch sweet, too

T - hops are definitely there, but balanced out by a malt backbone; this beer tastes better than I remember it when I first had it a month ago, but it wasn't ultra-hoppy then, either; fairly sweet

M - fairly high level of carbonation, not much aftertaste

D - easy to drink, but not super-memorable or noteworthy; think hoppy pale ale, but not too hoppy

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

Pour: deep burnt orange. Well constructed tan head breaks down slowly. Light effervescence.

Nose: light malt clean citrus notes as nuance. Little cream.

Mouth: the hops are softer more feminine and impart a 'planty' earthiness that's nice but still a little light for my liking. The hops play well with fruity esters.

Very nice. Terrapin is always trying to step their game up & that's awesome.

Terrapin so fresh and so green green ipa

The look is a very clear orange color, no haze what so ever and a bit of white head at the top. The smell is faint. A mix of bitter and sweet hops with a solid malt base. Not too much in the nose or mine isn't working right now. Maybe a bit of booze actually. But it's faint. 

Glug glug glug 

The flavor is hop rich but I'm afraid I've had this a bit too late. All my hop favorites are there, orange grapefruit bitter rind and even herbal notes. The malt is sweet and grainy and balances the whole thing nicely. Very drinkable and I can only imagine how nice it was fresh.

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

Appearance: pours a clear orange color with a 1" head that falls to a spotty surface foam. Big bubbles stick to the side of the glass.

Smell: floral hops, some earthiness, and orange citrus creates a nice aroma.

Taste: big caramel, orange, ripe pears, floral bitterness, and a hint of earthiness are most notable.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and a touch of dryness late.

Drinkability: easy to drink beer. Definitely floral and full of citrus. A decent IPA worth looking into trying.

22oz bottle.

Pours a deep, clear amber with a creamy beige head that recedes to a soapy collar and leaves some spotty lacing. it's definitely a little darker than I was expecting.

The aroma is nice, with some fresh herbal hops, pine resin and some grassy notes. There's almost a minty character to the nose with some sweet malts thrown in.

The taste also has an herbal, minty character with some green resinous hops. Sweet caramel malts and light lemon zest. Finish is sweet by dry and not all that bitter.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and sticky with hops and a light, soft carbonation.

This is a nice beer from Terrapin, maybe a little bit of a let down after Hopzilla, but that's a pretty steep comparison. Drinkable stuff overall though.

Pours a cloudy gold with a one-finger head that sticks around forever and leaves a lace ring. A wet, floral and spicy hop aroma along with some bread and caramel malt in the nose. Maybe a little thin or overcarbonated from the tap, but I found this beer to have a great hoppy bite as it is close to medium-bodied with a bready, cracker like dryness balanced w/ caramel and possibly honey sweetness and a great hop punch of citrus, spice and even a touch of grape. A great balance and while maybe not for all hopheads as the hops are simple and this beer is a tad sweet for a real hoppy IPA, I found it quite enjoyable.
