PIcked up a bomber at Tasty Beverage Co. in Raleigh, NC.

Pours a nice amber with deep orange hues. About a finger of tan/off-white head that receded quickly to a patchy film on the top of the beer.

The smell was extremely fresh. Overwhelming flowery and citrus hop notes. Wow, I love the nose of this beer! A slight breadiness comes through as the beer warms.

An acidic hop bite right off the bat. It gives way to a strong malty backbone. A slightly resinous lingering bitterness at the back end of the sip. The end of the sip is a nice citrusy citra flavor.

Medium bodied with a toned down carbonation build from the wet hopping. Very slightly oily, but not nearly as much as I was expecting.

To me this beer is worth the purchase just to sit there and smell it.

22oz brown bomber

Hazed amber, good frothing. Obvious smell of Citra hops, a bit catty with loads of freshly smashed citrus fruit, hint of alcohol and a bit biscuity. Grainy maltiness, crisp and a little slick. A whole lot of hop oil and mild resin flavor. Juicy with a slight catty flavor, bitterness is not strong but the flavor is. Hint of alcohol, wild flower and faint of tropical fruit. Finish very hoppy.

Fresh and extremely hoppy, a great example if you are looking to see what Citra hops taste like. Fun to quaff back.

Pours dark amber with a fluffy off-white head that settles to a nice cap. Great aromas of fresh CItra hops, lots of typical mango, papaya, grapefruit, and peach with a moderately sweet caramel malt profile. Taste is obviously Citra-forward, more tropical hop notes, with a mild bitterness in the finish and nicely balanced malt backbone. Mouthfeel is nice and crisp, with a medium body and ample carbonation. Overall a solid addition to the Terrapin line-up, and probably the best of the 3 So Fresh and So Green, Green versions.

Found some notes from 11/2012...

@ Tasty Beverage

Slightly hazed deep orange color under some creamy froth. Aromas of spruce, graham crackers, and stone fruit. Deeply fruity hop taste, bold tropical flavors, green stickiness, grapefruit, and peaches. Slightly prickly carbonation, not super bitter, medium bodied, and a bit dry. Hoppy goodness.

A; The beer is hazy amber orange in color. It poured with a short off white head. That died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Moderate to string aromas of fresh hops stand out-citrusy hops seem to stand out in particular.
T: There are flavors of citrus hops along with some hints of pine resin and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is detectable.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and packs in lots of fresh hop flavors.

Pours a deep golden color with a slight head. Slight lacing, resiny looking.
Smell is a little muted for the style. That citrus presence is there but not as assertive as i'd like.
Taste is a bit sweet up front, followed by a bit of a nice citrusy finish that lingers for a while. Basically the back end tastes like citra.
Mouthfeel is nice, slick and pretty smooth, carbonation seems right for style.
Overall this is a pleasant enough beer, and if you are looking for a citra fix (which I was) then this will work. Ultimately though it feels like a less intense version of Zombie Dust (not that that has to be a bad thing).
