Another stop on the great Georgia Beer Tour. $10 or $12 for a pint glass and a wristband for 8 4oz pours. Glasses were either Maggie's Peach, Liquid Bliss, and Rye Beer. Again, Georgia's BS brewery laws strike again.

Atmosphere: Good, I wish they had an indoor tasting room, and that's my only gripe. Gift shop had a clearance sale going on, and my girlfriend and I each picked up a T-shirt for $9 each. Back to the seating area. They basically have a big open field with picnic tables and other seating available. The beer is served from a hut on the side of the building. Also, be prepared to use the Port O Potties. Tour was good, first time I had ever been in a working brewery, most times I have been it has been after hours, or a during a slow period. Terrapin is loud and you actually get to see the brewers work. Also, WEAR CLOSED TOED SHOES, or they will make you wear big goofy work boots, and people like me will laugh at you.

Quality: Terrapin makes a good lineup of some pretty good beers. Had the Liquid Bliss Peanut Butter Porter(awesome), Hi-5 IPA(very good), Tangerine Dreamsicle IPA (awesome) Golden Ale (okay), Guano Loco (Awesome), Recreationale Session IPA (good), and Hopzilla (awesome). Wish I had gone Thursday, as that seems to be cask night.

Service: Wasn't busy, so it was very easy to get a beer. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would probably expect long lines on UGA home game weekends, as there is only one bar for beer.

Overall, Terrapin is a good brewery, and well worth checking out if you're in Athens or want to make the 85 minute trip from Atlanta.

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a clear glass tulip. VIN 2014 14172-174 on bottle neck. 4-pack purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Medium-amber with 1.5 fingers of beige frothy head with good retention and a few scrappy dashes of lacing. (3.75)

S: Very caramelly aroma with some orange and grassy herbal notes (3.5)

T: For a DIPA, this is very caramelly, with medium caramel-toffee sweetness finished with orange and pine citrus. Rye is very prominent and carries the herbal, grassy note throughout the beer. Alcohol is moderately strong and bitterness is medium. (3.75)

M: Mouthfeel is hefty but fairly dry with low-medium carbonation. (3.5)

O: Not a bad beer but a little rough around the edges with the heavy caramel sweetness having a tough time tempering the herbal, rustic grassiness the rye pushes through.
