Pours a rich deep bronze with a billowing off white full one finger head that leaves two rings of broken lace as it settles into a frothy mass.Nutty malts some spicy rye and sweet caramel and alcohol in the nose.The palate is pretty sweet with sweet alcohol and brown sugar flavors,there is some sharp rye and leafy hops but the sweetness is just as big.It's big and brash and the sweetness can be a bit much but the rye and hops play a big role.Good but not great in my opinion.

Terrapin Rye Cubed has a thin, cream-colored head, a semi-clear, rust-orange appearance, tight bubble streams at the edges, and some lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sharp, sweet, strong, bready, fruity, and brandy like. Taste is of very sweet, syrupy, brown bread, brandy, fruit (fig?), and peppery rye. Mouthfeel is heavy, and there is a bit of chalk in the under-taste. Terrapin Rye Cubed finishes dense, a little strong, and semi-wet. Notice I didn’t mention bitterness. For 125 IBU, I was expecting some. Overall, I like this, even though it seems like an out-of-whack style.

A: brown with a little bit of an orange glow. and a somewhat subdued tan head.

S: Very sweet with notes of molasses and caramel, followed by tropical fruit.

T: Nice.. citrus hops start, but are immediately followed by a huge tropical fruit flavor. Tons of caramel, and a touch of booze, a hint of spice in the finish, and a long follow of bread, hop bitterness, and the flavor you get from reduction by boiling.

M: Medium thick with lively carbonation.

O: Overall a pretty tasty beer, even as I just noticed that it is the 2014 edition.

Mmmmmm. Had this at the Cigar City Brewery (during a tap takeover). Pretty great imperial IPA! I wish I could have had more.
