4/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: looks more of an IPA than a belgian, carbonated with light amber hue, slightly cloudy

Smell: could pick up good aromas typical of both an IPA and Belgians, nice combination

Taste: I'd say the taste was something like 60/40 IPA to Belgian, it had good flavor and exhibited the two different styles well

Mouthfeel: indicative of an IPA, seemingly more water based and more carbonated

Drinkability: very drinkable, alcohol wasn't overbearing and the beer had good mouthfeel and flavor

I'd recommend this, which is now available in four packs

A - Slightly hazy copper body beneath a 1-finger white head of tight bubbles. Head subsides in about a minute but leaves a nice swirled lacing on top and nice lacing on the glass.

S - An interesting mix of Belgian yeast and citrus hops. Not as aromatic as expected - I really had to get my nose in this. Pear and dried apricot with some spicy alcohol notes.

T&M - The mix of moderate carbonation and slick alcohol make for a smooth mouthfeel that is neither slick and oily or dry. A nice feel with a bit of creaminess. Great citrus hop flavors up front that are bold and bitter but not overdone. Very nice balance from the Belgian yeast comes in next and adds a sweet fruitiness of pear and dried apricot. The yeast becomes more predominant as the beer warms and the alcohol becomes a bit spicier.

D - Despite the high alcohol content, I really enjoyed sipping this beer. Very well balanced in flavor and body and you get the best of all worlds of bold citrus hops and fruity Belgian yeast and spicy alcohol.

On tap at the coffee district / Poured into tulip glass

A: Upfront belgian and saison, light citrus hop aroma. Characteristically belgian in aroma, not necessarily IPA / IIPA.

A: Pours copper/bronze, slight chill haze, thin creamy head and a slight ring of lacing.

F: Upfront belgian/saison presence, I get notes of hops in the aftertaste but nothing major. Fruity and melon, and I got a little note of canteloupe in the body.

M: Medium to full bodied, creamy w/ the carbonation. (The best feature of this beer).

O: I think that this is a good belgian beer. Very drinkable and I love the creamy texture, but I believe it to be lacking in the IPA part to consider it a Belgian IPA. My only suggestion would be to add to the hop aroma and flavor to bump it up. If these areas were improved, I would bump my rating up to the 4 range.

12 oz bottle poured in to a goblet.

Pours a hazy orange with a thinning almost white head.

Smell is a battle between yeasty belgian and citrusy american hops.

Taste is a fruity yeast, then a hoppy, bright then slightly bitter, finishing with some alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel is a good thick, creamy feel.

Drinkability is a little hot, but a very nice drinking beer.

A really good beer.

Bottle courtesy of Freethyhops. Thanks Riley!

A hazy orange gold colour with about an inch of foam with pretty good lacing.

The smell is yeasty with notes of citrus lemon, fruity, kind of musty.

The taste is big hop bitterness with lemon rinds and pine, yeasty, a touch of medicinal flavours, slightly tart, and some warming alcohol. A bit of earthy malt shines through between the bitter notes. An unsual taste but I like it.

Medium bodied with brisk carbonation. An ok mouthfeel.

Drinkability? The abv is not hidden all that well but it's drinkable enough for a 12oz serving. This is a pretty good effort.

An interesting meld of hoppy goodness and Belgian yeast. Pours a cloudy orange/amber color. More cloudy when you swirl the bottle before pouring. Decent size antique white head with slightly better than average retention and spotty clumps of lacing. First sniff is awesome...get full Belgian yerasts and spices as well as citrus hops. Later smell is slightly more hoppy.

This beer tastes good. Belgian yeast kinda beats out the hoppiness, both both are present and the mix is very pleasant.

Drinkability is good. Richness from the Belgian flavors and crispness from the hops. I did not notice too much alcohol and would be surprised if I didn't read the octane level before drinking.

Drinkability is good although the high alcohol content adds some limits. Wouldn't be my first choice to quell hop head cravings but the mix of flavors really works well and makes this a very enjoyable drink.

Thanks to chefmikeanderson for the extra. 12oz bottle dated 2010 Vintage.

Pours a cloudy amber with a thin off-white head. Served cold as the bottle suggests.

Smell is a lot more Belgian than IPA ... fruity esters, green grapes, pear, and banana with a slight sweetness. Light toffee malts.

Taste is fruity esters similar to the smell and maybe some floral hops. Slightly tart finish.

Medium bodied and creamy. More carbonation comes through than the appearance suggests.

Drinks more like a Belgian Tripel than an IPA. No major American IPA flavors are detectable. Overall a good beer though and the rating would be higher if this wasn't marketed as an IPA.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Sam Adams pint glass. Poured a copper/orange color with a thin bright white head barely covering the top of the beer. The head faded after a minute or so, but left some decent lacing on the glass.

The first thing that hits you in the nose is the Belgian yeast, fruit and spice flavors. It has some floral hoppiness but not as much as I expected it would. The Belgian flavors are definitely more present then the IPA flavors in the nose. It has a very appealing nose, just not as hoppy as I expected.

The taste has more of a melding of the Belgian and hoppy flavors. The Belgian yeast comes through with some apple, pear and banana fruitiness as well as some clove like spiciness to it. The hops some through with some floral and citrus flavors and also lend a moderate bitterness up front. It has a malty sweetness that comes through in the finish and really helps balance it out.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, I really enjoyed the melding of the flavors. They did a very nice job of really integrating and balancing all the flavors. I would say the flavors lean more towards the Belgian side but the hoppy flavors came through nicely in the taste as well.

Got this one in the bottle as well. Terrapin is one of my all time favorite brewerys and they continue to amaze here. I am a recent convert to IPA style brews, and have been a long time Belgian lover. So one can imagine me initial excitement over this. The color is a deep rich golden brown. Almost like a good quality honey. The smell is lacking a bit, but that may be because it is only hop...NOTHING else. However, as soon as you taste 'er the smell will seem like nothing. I good hop flavor like a common IPA, but the after taste is the winner. This one gives you that sweet Belgian pop there at the end. There is a little heat to it, but that's just how you know its good.

Terrapin Monk's Revenge. 12oz. brown bottle 9.6% alcohol stated on bottle slightly different that the side project 22oz bomber. Claims Belgian style IPA. Not DIPA.

A- Heavy handed pour results in a deep orange fluid that produces a quarter inch head that falls to a froth and ring leaving sticky lacing on the rim of my dogfish goblet.

S- Scent of floral hops and sweet sugary yeast upfront with mild alcohol esters following.

T-M- Taste is good with orange and citrus hoppy goodness upfront and a Belgian like yeasty flavor dominating. Slightly sweet but the bitterness makes a bittersweet mixture of an all round good brew. Mouthfeel is lightly astringent in feel and watery on finish.

D- I'd say this one is one hell of a drinker with IPA flavors but a smooth Belgian influence. Have a few you will too, be under the influence as well. Cheers!!!

Bottle into Sam Adams tasting glass. Been drinking most of my beers from red plastic cups while we wait for the water restrictions to lift, so this is a nice change.

Pours lightly hazy golden-copper, with a thin light-khaki head on top that settles into some light, sudsy bubbles. Some delicate lacing.

Nose is very nice - beautiful melding of floral and herbal notes from both the yeast strain and the hops; bits of citrus floating around as well, though not dominant by any means. Noticeable alcohol doesn't really get in the way, even if it is a bit solvent-y.

Taste is nice as well. Hop profile is again herbal, almost floral, and ridiculously smooth. There's a lightly pungent caramel sweetness wrapped up within that big hop character underneath, along with a bit of alcohol. Teases of breadiness and even peach cobbler come and go on a whim. Bitterness is held well in check, and takes on a lightly piney character. Finish carries more of the herbal, floral notes that define this excellent beer.

Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, with a softer carbonation than expected and a body that is just a bit slick.

Drinkability is close to perfect for such a big beer. Not overly coarse or aggressive, rather smooth and refined, while still carrying loads of flavor.

Overall, this isn't a palate wrecker by any means, but rather a beautifully integrated beer that really goes beyond both "genres", avoiding the cliches that happen with many of this style. One of the best Belgian IPA's I've had.

Pours a mostly clear medium orange with thin offwhite head, spotty lace. Smell: I'm getting a whole lot of sweet pale malt with a little must and some subdued melon and herbal hop. I'd like a more 'crisp' hop presence. Taste: hops make more impact here: herbal, with a lemony edge. A hint of cantaloupe, sweet pale malt, and again a little mustiness. Some kick from the abv. Dry, sweet finish. I think it's reasonably true to the idea of a tripel + ipa combo, for an American craft take at least, but it's not particularly exciting.

Thanks to gford217 for this extra!

A: Opaque golden, three finger off white head

S: Piny hops coupled with zesty yeast. Twang of sugar and bright fruit.

T: Wonderful combination of piny hops, malt, and spicy, fruity Belgian yeast. Candi sugar is found mid palate. Alcohol is not present, cant believe this is almost 10%. The hop profile is somewhat muted by the sweet malt and spicy yeast.

M/D: Medium bodied, medium carb. Easily quaffable, an enjoyable brew solo or with a meal.

Poured into my DFH Signature glass. Pours a nice looking red-orange, with a large white head that quickly shrinks, but does not disappear, leaving behind plenty of lacing. The smell is a wonderfull combination of belgian spice/sweetness and piney hops. Taste mirrors the nose, but is a bit heavy on the hop bitterness. The beer is nicely carbonated, and has a nice fullness to it. I enjoyed this batch of Monk's Revenge, but enjoyed the original batch with a few months of age on it even more.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: It pours a clear deep golden color with billowy four finger off-white head. The foam is slowly receding to leave some lacing along the side of the glass.

S: The predominate smell is of some piney/grassy hops. There is a definite classic sweet malt Belgian smell amidst the hops. It is a very interesting aroma in a good way.

T: The hops are a little less apparent in the taste, but they are definitely there. The Belgian side stands out more in the taste. The front of the sip shows the hops, but it quickly converts to a sweet malt presence. This is a nice balance between an American style and a Belgian style. The mouthfeel is balanced perfectly for this hybrid style.

Thanks to Blazer06 for sending this my way.

Pours a golden cloudy amber with a creamy colored head.

Smell is of Belgian yeast and hops. Light malt aromas as well.

Taste is very interesting, a strange but terrific marriage between a Belgian Tripel and a American double IPA. Awesome beer, I am a fan. Nice bitter hop finish with a crisp Belgian Triple taste in the front.

Mouthfeel is terrific, very clean and crisp. Medium carbonation with a full body, can't get any better here.

So drinkable, so delicious, Terrapin is really cranking out some great beers.

Cask at the Porter.

Pours an opaque golden-orange color with a half-finger white head. The head quickly recedes into a thin ring around the glass leaving almost no lacing.

Smells of bright and light citrus - oranges mostly with hints of grapefruit peel. Also present are hints of indistinct spices and lighter fruits - pears mostly.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Pale malt flavors serve as a backbone, albeit a mildly weak one, soon giving way to robust orange flavors with a hint of alcohol burn. Also present are very light amounts of herbal hop flavors that are joined by lighter fruit flavors near the end of the sip. The ending is mildly bitter.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with very soft carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall I'm not sure this flavor profile would have worked as well in any other medium than a cask. Definitely different than the SP profile, I'll be interested to see how the bottles/taps of this version turn out.

Picked up a 4-pack from Capitol City Package.

A: Golden-orange, slightly cloudy. A vigorous pour yielded a massive frothy white head that subsided fairly rapidly, leaving a very pleasant lace and some webbing around the edge of the glass.

S: Strong on citrus hops, almost orange or tangerine. Smells a little sweet, but it was a nice balance between the sweet orange smell and the hoppy bitterness. Behind the orange is a really nice floral note, like fresh roses.

T: Superb Belgian IPA. Strong citrus elements with some really pleasant hop. Everything from the smell is present with no major surprises. It's a tad bit too sweet, but only a tad.

M: Moderately carbonated so that it dances, and of moderate body. Coats the inside of your mouth very well and leaves a good residual flavor.

D: Highly drinkable. Easy to sip, not too filling, and leaves you wanting more.

Overall, one of my favorite brews from Terrepin so far.

Another of the side projects I never got around to trying. I had two left to finish off the series and decided to open both of them this evening. Served chilled and poured into a 10 oz tasting glass, this one was consumed on 05/02/2010.

The pour was very nice with a deep golden, straw color coming forward right away. Nice two fingers of white foam quickly come up and over the top of the glass settling down with a nice amount of lacing that quickly takes over the glass. Very cloudy, even through the final pours. First thing I notice is the aroma of honey, lots of grains, bready malts and a noticeable amount of honey, whether intentional or not it is there. Grape skins start to come forward now as does a light touch of grass, nothing really bowling me over though. First sip is very smooth, rich and well carbonated the flavor is allowed to explore the palate quite nicely and really makes for a very full feel. Light grains, pears, peaches, apples, all seem to be well represented, but something seems to be missing with the depth here. Just not as full as I would have liked. Warming really brings out some nice buttery notes, hints of light flavors that really come across well. The ABV is nicely hidden and I was able to sip through the bottle without much trouble.

Overall not my favorite version of the style I have ever had, but I think it works. I would have no issue with trying this one again, especially with a little bit of age put on it. Might bring it into the great category.

Pours a solid copper/ reddish tint with a very light ring of beige head.
Smell is well hopped- flowery hops and a light spices aroma.
Taste is complex and well put together. A hopped flavor starts it off and it finishes lightly malty and a nice spice on the end.
Finish is half-dry with a light spiced after-taste.
Drinks very well- a light malt caramel keeps the hops smooth- and no bite.

Poured from a new 12oz into my oft-used Tripel Karmeliet goblet. Thanks to kkipple for picking this one up!

A. A low thickish off white head tops this light clear marmalade looking brew. Spotty lace. Okay.

S. Quite nice, a fruity, tropical, floral rush blended with sweet sugar and what have to be American hops. I'm getting tangerine, pineapple, rosewater, some pepper, and grapefruit-citrus pungency. There's sweetness in the back and a sharp, hot alcohol note. Very nice, but the booze is a mite distracting. Surely one of Terrapin's better smelling beers.

T. Not *quite* up to par with the nose; this is still a very solid Belgian with hop character to spare. Monk's Revenge is golden and sweet, checked by lots of fermentation character (the previously mentioned fruits are all here) and the bitter, sticky hops make themselves known. Wonderful hop bill. Quite easy to put away, leans towards the bitter side of things ultimately, and finishes estery and hop-bitter, dancing around a bit of fruit-sour notes. The sweetness is welcome and reserved - the whole beer works well, I think, as an American take on the Belgian IPA style.

M / D. A bit messy on the tongue, but there is a lot going on. Carbonation is medium-low, mouthfeel avoids being too thick and is just right. At the end, there's a rush of leafy hop bitterness which is out of place for the general synergy of this brew, but take another sip and things set themselves right.

Monk's Revenge is one of Terrapin's best beers to date and surely one of the best Belgian IPAs I've had. Recommended.

This was sent to me by the benevolent and congenial Mr JohnQVegas-- AKA Dustin in Nashville. I'm not sure if this was part of the trade, or if this was an extra, but more and more, I'm leaning towards the idea that any transaction with Dustin is a nice bonus. Thank you sir!

Pouring this in to my Duvel tulip... now. This beauty pours a hazy orangey copper with a nearly white head standing nearly 2 fingers. The lace hangs like curtains... before a show. After a few seconds, they part. The head has all but died... leaving a splattering of bubbles across the top. Still-- very nice looking brew.

I smell a ton of pleasant scents coming out of this one... It's hard to pinpoint them-- but here goes: bananas, orange peels, cloves, fresh baked bread/biscuits, citrusy hops... wow. All those scents meld together to form a very nice aroma. I can't wait to take a sip.

Wow. Bubblegum. First and foremost. I get original, old school bubble gum. Followed by a taste that reminds me of banana flavored laffy taffy. Remember the bad jokes? (What goes "Tick-Tock, woof woof?" -- A Watchdog!)
Then comes some malts and hops. Nicely balanced. The sweet malts and the citrus hops meld with the yeast flavor to create a very interesting blend of deliciousness. Is this the best Belgian IPA? No... but it is far from the worst. It is certainly worth trying if you can get it!

Nice medium body is thick but not quite chewy... almost though. The small amount of head is not indicatve of the carbonation level... this thing is creamy smooth with loads of fine bubbles. Very nice and easily drinkable. Although this is a beer where I honestly would say "One is enough." There is a lot going on in this one, and the ABV is over 9%... So maybe one of these... followed by a nice sessionable >4% brew... Or, in tonight's case, one of these, followed by bedtime.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a cloudy golden amber color with minimal head.

Has a fruity smell with a bit of citrus. Some grassy hops in the smell.

Tastes like grassy hops, a slight hint of dark fruit, and a stronger taste of alcohol than I was expecting. Taste starts off slightly sweet and finishes slightly bitter. Some belgian yeast and spices in the taste as well.

Mouthfeel is lighter bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

Drinkability is low overall, decent for the style. The alcohol taste is too strong IMO. Definitely would not session these.

A-Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a one finger white head that faded quickly but left decent lacing.

S-Faint nose, but Belgian yeast is noticeable along with sweet malt, floral & citrus hops. Its a nice nose, but understated.

T-The Belgian influence is noticeable. Malt, caramel, a bit of spice and sweet fruit.

M-On the heavier side of medium body. A bit slick and coating. Perfect carb level for my tastes.

D-Easily drinkable, especially if you are partial to the style.

Overall, a solid brew. Not world class, but certainly worth a try.

I've been excited to start trying some Terrapin beers. Here goes. Got this one thanks to kkipple.

A: A nice 1.5 finger head rises up and slowly fades in my Chouffe tulip glass. It's a very clear orange maple color.

N: Oooh, a really nice Belgian ale aroma to start. Some very light Belgian yeast, slight Belgian malts, touch of sweetness and very slight booze aroma. With that is some lighter fare hops. Low alpha hops with a nice grassy aroma, some citrus, and slight floral aroma. I really like how it keeps the hops lighter and doesn't overwhelm and become an American IPA with some Belgian malts.

T: Similar to the nose. Starts with some Belgian malts, little sweetness and candi sugar. With that is a slight booze taste with a touch of warming alcohol. It starts to get a dubble or tripel like taste with the booze and candi sugar. With that comes a little fruit too, and touch of Belgian yeast. Then comes a slight hop flavor. Some grassy and low alpha hop flavors, little spicy hop, and it maintains light but maybe too light. The alcohol stings a bit too.

M: Medium body with a little stinging alcohol and heat from the booze, good carbonation.

F: Dries a bit but still leaves a slight sticky sweetness. Some lingering citrus and orange peel, as well as other fruits. Some tangering and grapefruit on the finish, seem more to be from the yeast than hops, but could be some nice hop flavor. Either way it tastes nice. The alcohol is still warming and spicy on the finish, and it gets slightly bitter but not much. Some nice fresh dry hops linger on the finish, a Cascade like taste. It comes on really late and adds a really nice touch that redeems the beer.

Overall it started very nice, beautiful aroma, and the taste was pretty good. They kept the hops lower and really nice on the nose. However, the sweetness and boozy taste is way to high. Just for a Belgian Pale its more like a tripel with some light hops, and as the nose was perfect with hops the taste was a little lacking. The really late finishing dry hops add a really nice touch. If only the booze wasn't so high.
