I've pretty much loved every Terrapin side project I've ever encountered, and after hearing about this one's release, went to several different stores to track down a bomber. Can't wait to dive into it, so here we go... 22oz bottle into traditional Hefe glassware.

Pours a golden orange hue with a slight haziness about it. Just a tad bit of head appears, which quickly dissipates leaving absolutely barely any lacing to speak of. Its as if an IPA and Hefe were mixed together, which I suppose is the entire point. Would have loved to have more head though.

Nose start off as a typical Hefe; lots of banana, clove and wheat. Then proceeds to nodes of grass, pine and lemon/orange citrus hops. I feel the latter's presence overpowers the former a bit too much. Balance isn't quite right, but still a interesting and nice aroma.

Tastes just as I expected, except in opposite order. Banana and wheat characteristics sit in the back and are more complementary rather than central flavors to the citrus and floral hops that kick it off. It finishes off rather nice and crisp with a slight bitterness that contrasts rather well against the sweet wheat and yeast. Pretty tasty stuff, but again, could use a bit more balance in the Hefe's favor.

Medium bodied and pretty drinkable. If it weren't so limited and hard to find, I'd go buy a few more. Carbonation could be better, buts that's my only real complaint in this department.

Overall, a solid offering. Although it didn't blow me out of the water as some of their other side projects have (Hopzilla, Wake N' Bake), but its safe to say that this collaboration of my two of my favorite styles worked out pretty well and is definitely worth a try.

Bottle (2012)

Thanks for opening this with me, VaTechHopHead!

A murky, dark honey-orange with a small off-white cap. Leaves the glass messy with irregular lines and sheets of sticky lace.

Strong aroma of citrus, some wheat, and alcohol heat. There's also a definite melon character to the aroma from the choice of hops used.

The flavor is largely bitter, even for the style, along with complementary citrus and melon notes (cantaloupe?). There's some sweet malt character as well, but the overwhelming bitterness hides some of that.

Medium to full-bodied for the style with moderate carbonation.

I suppose this is my favorite German-style wheat IPA...whatever the hell that means.

Appearance: pours a cloudy orange color with a one inch head that breaks apart quickly.

Smell: citrus, banana, and a decent earthy bitterenss rise from the glass.

Taste: caramel, wheat, banana, grapefruit citrus, and some earthy hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Starts out crisp and ends less crisp with a dry finish. Long lasting aftertaste.

Overall: different style beer that was enjoyable, but one pint glass was enough in a session.
