I don't review very often, buy after trying this one I thought I would try and rectify it's mediocre scores.
From a big 22 oz bottle into a snifter.
Appearance- honestly not an ocular spectacle but still has a reddish orange color associated with the style.
Aroma- spectacular, reminiscent of Zombie Dust. Almost like a hop perfume or cologne certainly orange zesty and lemony. Kind of has the pleasant "gym socks" sort of thing going on.
Taste- Just Great! Very little malt influence at all WHICH IS DESIRABLE in this style. Bitterness is subtle and complements the hop flavor very well. The only way to describe it is as an Orange Sour Patch Kid made of cotton candy.
Mouthfeel- Smooth liquid and creamy head throughout the duration.
OVERALL- Very underrated, perhaps because it is Terrapin and people don't want to admit they like it but this is a top notch beer. After the first sip, my thought was "I need to get some more of this tomorrow. I know Terrapin does a good job with hops, this exceeded my expectations, and I will be buying/drinking this again in this year or the next.

So Fresh and So Green Green with Citrus Hops pours out a slightly hazy amber color with a small head. The aroma is fantastic, boatloads of ultra-fresh Citra hops hitting the nose, with the faintest whiff of caramel malts backing it up. The taste is excellent, it's basically just a smooth Citra hop run from top to bottom, letting the citrus and light pine notes of one of the most desired hop varietals shine through. The mouthfeel is lighter and slightly sticky, and the drinkability is fantastic. Overall, this is a really good fresh hop beer with a great hop varietal. It's just a very flavorful easy drinker.

22 ounce bomber poured into a snifter.
A: Pours a hazy copper color with a 1 finger head and nice lacing.
S: Wow!! What a smell! Strong, fresh citrus and floral hops along with some grass and peach aromas. Some pine mixed in there too. So Fresh & So Green is right!
T: Much more balanced than the nose, there is a good bit of malt flavor along with the fresh hops. Nice bitterness as well as some breadiness.
M: Medium bodied with good carbonation.
O: What a wonderful smelling, well balanced, smooth, easy to drink IPA. Well done Terrapin!!
