Beer review from BA Mag Nov 2007.

While Terrapin Beer Co. gets a good amount of exposure from their extreme beers they do have your middle-of-the-road 5.0% ABV American Pale Ale in their lineup. No beer should go unnoticed.

Clear and bright golden-yellow color, we are happy enough with the head and retention since some lace did stay on the glass. Mild citric, soft herbal and a little floral in the aroma from the hops, light biscuit and cracker malt in the nose, too. Solid crispness with sufficient smoothness to get by for this moderately bodied brew. Hop bitterness is present but never reaches the point of being sharp, the flavor drops a thin blanket of herbal flavor middle to end. Grainy with dried grass and feed grain flavors from the malt. Finishes towards dry with a nearly clean after taste.

Very drinkable with a very approachable character, carbonation is perfect which leaves a very refreshing crispness behind. The beer geeks will certainly say that it is middle of the road or pedestrian, sure, but we need beers like this out there because not everyone is going to want to drink a beer with 120 IBUs, 13% ABV and aged in an oak barrel for six months. Odd, we know, but true.
