Nicely done IPA but a little disappointing as I expected more based on the great reputation of this brewery. Nice yellow-amber color with some fluffy head and a little spotty lacing. Smells of fruity and floral hops. Tastes of more fruity, citrus hops than floral or herbal hops. Nice caramel, grain, biscuit and a malt backbone. Smooth mild finish and mouthfeel, decent carbonation.

Another critically acclaimed brewery made their way to Michigan. Honestly I have no idea what to expect so let's just dig right in.

Look - From the twelve ounce can, pours a deep golden with a finger of dense head that sits atop like a pillow. The carbonation appears low.

Smell - Mildly catty and juicy with an apparent pine nature.

Taste - Catty aspect is the initial suspect no doubt coming from the chinook and simcoe hops. Immediately following is a big juicy burst which is rounded off by a pine factor. Now by pine, I don't mean the typical pine, I mean like a half way mixture between forest pine and juniper berries. Somewhat peppery as well.

Feel - Pretty thick feel with a low to medium carbonation. Swallows moderately bitter.

Overall - A rather unique IPA offering. Some people may find this flavor profile to be absolutely irresistible. Personally I do like this beer quite a bit but I feel that some of the hops didn't really show to their full potential. In the end this is a very welcome beer in an over saturated market of boring canned IPA's. Look forward to trying more from these guys and gals at Terrapin.

Hop madness! Six hops attack the senses, not in waves, but with a strong sustained approach. Deep golden color, not overly aromatic. Very satisfying choice for the hopheads among us.
