Unfortunately, this is another disappointment from Terrapin. I was hoping for a beer to show case the mosaic hops, but all I taste is muddled rye/malt. The date on the box is illegible but their website shows a limited spring release, so how old could it possibly be?

Was not a fan. Rye does not play well with mosaic in my opinion

Has a best by date of late 07/14

Appearance - Pours a semi-clear, deep red copper with a near 2-finger khaki colored head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of surface suds. Leaves rings of lacing down the glass, with great stick.

Smell - Hmm, smell is a bit odd. Earth and a light tart tropical fruit; kinda like a pineapple slice that's been rolled around in some dirt. Not a good combo.

Taste - Flavor is a bit hollow; touches on citrus and pineapple hops with a sturdy caramel backbone, but the bulk of the flavor is lost almost as quickly as it hits, leaving behind only faint traces of said character and an almost too-easy-to-miss peppery rye aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Nothing too notable, but a decently smooth drinker.

Overall - Yeah, not feeling it. Seems to lack cohesive flavor, and what is there is quite fleeting. Probably not the best use of mosaic hops, which seemed overwhelmed by the malts... but then those seemed a bit subdued as well. Hmm.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a copper color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: An average aroma of rye, malt, and hops. Not very surprising.

T: Tasted of grassy hops, malt, rye, and a little caramel as well. The combination of the grassy hops and an overall thinness make for a less than interesting flavor.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a watery finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Not the greatest example of a rye-infused IPA. Could have been better than it was.

Can with a date of 6.10.15. A light tan Lacey head atop amber/orange slightly hazy brew. Aroma is toasted rye, caramel, toffee with a peppery spice. Some muted blueberry notes from the mosaic there too. Taste is big time rye with the characteristic touch of astringency that often comes with rye. The hops are more prominent in the taste than in the nose. Mouthfeel is a bit astringent with a bit of bitter linger.
Overall not sure if the rye melds well with the mosaic. A decent drink but not worth seeking out.

On tap at Bonds Tavern. I was not truly impressed by this brew. The mix between hops and malts seemed a bit too unbalanced for me to really appreciate what was trying to be done here. Grainy and earthy flavor with a bitterness on the tongue. Not a huge fan.

Pretty disappointing. The worst offering I've had from Terrapin.
