This used to be one of my favorites, but since the terrapin buyout I have noticed a swift decline in quality. What used to be a complex hop profile with a powerful malty backbone has evolved into a boozy astringent mess. Tastes like they just dump in sugar to boost the abv. Save your money and make a batch of toilet wine for the same experience .

Not the prettiest looking IPA, but it has such a great feel, and lots of good hops tastes, although it's a more dull taste than I'm accustomed to from IPA'S. I have no complaints. It's actually super smooth. It's great with food too, imo.

It pours a golden yellowish with a nice head that leaves good lacking on glass. The smell is piney with a mild citrus to it. Taste is well balanced between the bitterness from the hops and malts. ( I thought it would have more of a bite to it.) The mouthful is medium and overall a pleasant surprise for someone still getting use to drinking IPAd.

Lots of hops here - as mentioned - six varieties! Another goodie from Terrapin. Golden color - citrus aroma - heavy side of mouthfeel - and a great taste if you like lots of hops! I do - so this is one I get from time to time.

Nice blend of hops ..

Bready slightly yeasty, some floral/pine hops flavor going on..

Had better , had worse.. Its drinkable but just kind of a middle of the road beer imo..

P- Poured from a 12 oz can,into a large Funky Buddha snifter.Best by 7/23/17.

L- Fluffy white colored head that stands 1 finger tall,with good retention and sticky lacing.Hazy golden colored body with an amber hue,medium clarity and distorted light showing through the glass.Heavy amount of carbonation.

S- On the nose I get bright citrus and tropical fruit hops,with some sweet bready malt notes.

T- On the palate I get bitter grapefruit and pine hops up front,with sweet malt and citrus hops on the back end.Bitter hop backbone and after taste,pretty well balanced.

F- The mouth feel is medium / thin with a silky texture on the sip,and slightly chalky after.High amount of oxidation on the tongue,with a dry finish.

O- This is a pretty solid IPA for down south.Good balance of malt and hops,in my opinion.I would drink this one again.Some IPA purists may not like it,but I suggest you try it for yourself.
