12 oz. bottle into Terrapin Pint

A: Poured with a nice head that stays for a bit but fizzles to a film with a large section of bubbles. The lacing is quite nice too. It is a slightly cloudy golden amber color.

S: Quite citrusy with a bit of pine intermingled. It is a pretty nice smell, but it kind of reminds me of a stout smell for some reason.

T: Not the best tasting out there. There is a mild citrus note that is overpowered by the pine in it. I remember it being more citrus-y on tap.

M: Pretty crisp all the way through but it is still quite mild.

O: I feel like there is either something wrong with these beers or with my palate today. I had this at a Terrapin event but it was just a sample. I remember it tasting better. Luckily, a friend gave this to me. Their Hopzilla is much better. Still not a bad IPA, but it is one of the lesser IPAs I have had.

On draft at Front Page News in Atlanta.

This is the kind of IPA that I like: Well-hopped, but just as important, it's exceptionally well balanced by its malt backbone. The malt is not just sweet but has a complexity that stands up to the hops. With an ABV of 7.3%, this is a somewhat high OG beer which is what gives the hops-malt balance that I like.

Noticed an enjoy by 5/13 bottle and decided to give it a try.

Pours a very clear orange amber color, with a foamy fluffy white head. It's got some decent retention and lacing is chunky.

Smell overall is a bit muted. Light pine hops and citrus zest, with a tartness to it.

Flavors consist of light pine resin, lemon zest and a now blend of hops.

Not too bitter, very smooth and tart.

Overall glad I tried it fresh. It's crisp and tart, which is unique, but smell and flavor are not entirely there for me. Cheers.
