Terrapin uses rye to brew this pale ale, a grain seldom found in other micro brewed beers. Which is how it acquires its signature taste. It's also made with five varieties of hops and a generous amount of specialty malts.

This beer pours a slightly cloudy light orange color. There was not much head. The smell is citrus like. A very sweet smell. The taste is a bitter hoppy taste that is not too strong. The mouthfeel is relativly smooh. There is a bit of lasting bitterness. I could drink these again. Too bad I have to drive a hour each way up a mountain to get Terrapin. It has to go up the mountain to get to the store. So why not drop some off at the bottom of the mountain Skyland Distributing?
