A: A cloudy yellow in color, with a nice finger of off white head at the top that left a little lacing around the glass as you drank it.

S: Lots of citrus and hops on the nose with some biscuit notes to as well, the malt came through on the tail end.

T:Almost exactly like the nose with lots of citrus and bready notes throughout, some good hops gave off the bitterness as well.

M: Light bodied and medium carbonation.

O: Not a terrible beer, but not one of Terrapin's better beers, easy drinking for sure.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: Nice, mostly clear golden pour. Frothy, thick head. Looked heavily carbonated with a good amount of bubbles.

S: Not particularly aromatic. Heavy hop scent, with a a bit of citrus. There's something else in it though on which I can't quite put my finger. Bear with me on this one, I'm still developing my smell descriptions.

T: Hoppy up front, but the hoppiness quickly dissipates. Not particularly malty. After the initial taste it becomes quite mild, but that doesn't detract from quality.

M: Very carbonated. The beer is a little on the thin side.

Notes: I am quite happy to have tried this beer. It's quite light for the level of hops. It is definitely more versatile than I thought that it would be on first try. A good summer beer for those looking for a hoppier ale.
