A: Dark black body with a coffee and cream head.

S: Dark malt and coffee, With a nice earth and pine hop aroma. Definitely picking up a good amount of the malt in this one.

T: Good hit of bitterness up front. Pine and grapefruit with a hint at earthy that blends easily into coffee and fresh baked bread. There is something a little odd in the aftertaste, but I can't put my finger on it.

M: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. A bit of a creamy mouthfeel to it.

O: Overall fairly tasty, but it seems a little more in the realm of hoppy stout, which I totally don't mind.

Liked this beer but hard to call it an IPA the malt and sweetness really took over. Nice dark brown look, big boozy smell. Booziness noticeable at start but faded quickly. Mouthfeel was very carbonated almost fizzy. I liked the taste a lot just wished for more hop in flavor, smell and bite. Well worth a try.

This was my third attempt at a black ale and it was definitely the best, but I'm still not in love with the style. Totally drinkable but wouldn't go out of my way.

A: Black, opaque, 1 inch khaki head that leaves good lacing

S: Floral, piney, citrus hops, a little malt in the distant background

T: Pine, floral, lemony hops up front, then a sweet coffee, caramely malt flavor next that really balances the hop punch that you get up front

M: Medium to full, coats the mouth and lingers for a bit after the sip is gone

O: A really nice beer. This style is right up my alley and Terrapin does a good job executing it.

Love almost all of Terrapin's brews, but this one just doesn't do much for me.

12oz bottle into a teku glass.

A- Jet black color, near opaque. Mocha tan colored 2f head, fades to a film leaving lots of sticky lacing. Quite bubbly.

S- Clean citrus and floral hop aromas. Dark bready roasted malts with caramel sweets.

T- Dark roast, just shy of burnt, malts. Chocolate, caramel. Enough citrus hop to tame the malts.

M- Well carbonated, drinkable. Strong malts, some hop bite. Dry finish.

O- Not bad, but not what I'd call an IPA. A hoppy dry stout/porter, perhaps.
