I don't review very often, buy after trying this one I thought I would try and rectify it's mediocre scores.
From a big 22 oz bottle into a snifter.
Appearance- honestly not an ocular spectacle but still has a reddish orange color associated with the style.
Aroma- spectacular, reminiscent of Zombie Dust. Almost like a hop perfume or cologne certainly orange zesty and lemony. Kind of has the pleasant "gym socks" sort of thing going on.
Taste- Just Great! Very little malt influence at all WHICH IS DESIRABLE in this style. Bitterness is subtle and complements the hop flavor very well. The only way to describe it is as an Orange Sour Patch Kid made of cotton candy.
Mouthfeel- Smooth liquid and creamy head throughout the duration.

OVERALL- Very underrated, perhaps because it is Terrapin and people don't want to admit they like it but this is a top notch beer. After the first sip, my thought was "I need to get some more of this tomorrow. I know Terrapin does a good job with hops, this exceeded my expectations, and I will be buying/drinking this again in this year or the next.

22oz brown bomber

Hazed amber, good frothing. Obvious smell of Citra hops, a bit catty with loads of freshly smashed citrus fruit, hint of alcohol and a bit biscuity. Grainy maltiness, crisp and a little slick. A whole lot of hop oil and mild resin flavor. Juicy with a slight catty flavor, bitterness is not strong but the flavor is. Hint of alcohol, wild flower and faint of tropical fruit. Finish very hoppy.

Fresh and extremely hoppy, a great example if you are looking to see what Citra hops taste like. Fun to quaff back.

Pours dark amber with a fluffy off-white head that settles to a nice cap. Great aromas of fresh CItra hops, lots of typical mango, papaya, grapefruit, and peach with a moderately sweet caramel malt profile. Taste is obviously Citra-forward, more tropical hop notes, with a mild bitterness in the finish and nicely balanced malt backbone. Mouthfeel is nice and crisp, with a medium body and ample carbonation. Overall a solid addition to the Terrapin line-up, and probably the best of the 3 So Fresh and So Green, Green versions.

Found some notes from 11/2012...

@ Tasty Beverage

Slightly hazed deep orange color under some creamy froth. Aromas of spruce, graham crackers, and stone fruit. Deeply fruity hop taste, bold tropical flavors, green stickiness, grapefruit, and peaches. Slightly prickly carbonation, not super bitter, medium bodied, and a bit dry. Hoppy goodness.

A; The beer is hazy amber orange in color. It poured with a short off white head. That died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Moderate to string aromas of fresh hops stand out-citrusy hops seem to stand out in particular.
T: There are flavors of citrus hops along with some hints of pine resin and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is detectable.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and packs in lots of fresh hop flavors.
