Delicious! Not the most hoppy but smooth, easy drinking.

Pour: A thick hazy, amber and by thick i mean even floating particulates. head forms and breaks down but lacing remains steady throughout.

Nose: malt comes off as creamy and leads right into orangey, grapefruit, lemon grass, spice and mineral notes are strong. very, enticing. like a siren beckoning lesser mariners to their doom!

Mouth: the malt in this monster is actually a bit softer than a another comparable double(maharaja). med-heavy body, thick mouth feel with a bit of sweetness from the malt at the beginning that gives way to the plethora of hops. the soapy character pops up in the middle and doesn't provide the 'undesirable' finish that many who aren't cut out for real IPAs like this one would complain about. fruity and hoppy throughout with a lightly creamy finish with hints of spice and mineral notes. almost no grassy lingering notes.

FRICKIN' awesome. if your in it's vicinity .... get it! i don't believe you'll be disappointed, this is one of the tastiest offering from terrapin to date, the real question is why most of what they brew isn't of as an exceptional quality as this delicious monster
