3.96/5  rDev +3.7%

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into a snifter
Aroma of pine and spice
Head average (4 cm), white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 4 mm ring and 1 mm layer
Lacing poor – half dozen various size islands of tiny to medium bubbles
Body light yellow, cloudy
Flavor begins with a blast of pepper and hops, slowly fades to yeast phenolics; no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, aggressive carbonation

Appearance 3, Aroma 4, Flavor 4.5, Palate 2.75, Overall 3.5625. Final weighted score: 3.9625.
This is a very good entry in the Terrapin Side Project series with the only real flaw for me being the over-aggressive carbonation – kind of like chewing an Alka-Seltzer tablet. The flavors of pine and white pepper balance the yeast phenolics nicely producing a pretty good drink once the carbonation dies. This is one I’d like to see become permanent.

Bottle: Poured a yellow color ale with some hazy white hue and a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coriander and wheat malt with some light citrusy hops is quite pleasant. Taste is also a well balanced mix between some coriander and other spices with light fruity ester with some light dry citrus hops and light sweet rustic malt which may contain some wheat. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. This beer is not necessarily earth shattering but well enjoyable with good drinkability.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker, the beer is a bright, slightly hazy, orange-straw coloring, with a ton of carbonation bubbling throughout, and a tall, frothy, dense, white head. This one's a gusher on opening and pour. Aromas of tart citrus, all-spice, coriander, nutmeg, subtle sour notes, woody notes, toasted grains, and hints of resinous hops. Flavors are tangy and tart citrus forward, sour notes, white grape/white wine characteristics, woody highlights and spice, coriander spice, nutmeg, and piney hops characteristics. This carries a lot of wine characteristics. The body is light, effervesced, and transitions into a fairly dry, crisp finish. The aftertaste is a solid blend of tart and sour notes, with a heavy linger of spices.

The color appeared to be a light golden pear that set under a bright frothy, thick and sudsy head.

Quite complex in the nose I get honey, banana, spicy black pepper, honeysuckle flower, a herbal hop and a bit of perfume.

The flavor is very strong on the honeysuckle flower, with a caramel and toffee malt backbone. The hops are herbal but sweet and it finishes with the perfume like flavor.

The feel is light, fizzy and prickly but not so bad as to be abrasive.

An enjoyable beer with good variance and a light countenance.

"Straight from the Orient and into the brewing ingredient R&D field comes the next incarnation of the most beloved IPA brewer on the planet, Dr. Krunkles. The Dr. is in with a new White Farmhouse IPA that has ordinary brewmasters bending over and singing "Moon River" in his honor. Dr. Krunkles White Farmhouse IPA reaches new heights in complexity and flavor by combining the malt and spices of a Belgian Witbier, the yeast of a Farmhouse Ale and the hoppy goodness of an American IPA. Dr. Krunkle's twisted touch is a dash of white peppercorn and then wood aging on white ash." Brewed in the style of a White IPA, this is Terrapin's 20th Side Project release, available in 22 oz. bottles and on limited draft.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 58º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) A vigorous pour yields a pastel white head of a crisp foamy consistency over a golden amber body. Clarity is very high despite some very fine sediment and carbonation is plentiful and vivacious. Retention is above average and lacing is thin and spotty. 4

(Smell) The aroma is very indicative of a Farmhouse Ale (Saison) up front, with the other notes trailing. Anticipate sweet wheat malts and some toasted caramel with a generous dose of bitter orange peel, drops of lemon, apricot and pear plus a peppery nose of coriander and white pepper for a spritely aroma. Hop notes of grapefruit, mango and pineapple trail the yeast profile but generate a pleasant twist on the aroma and a mild-moderate bitterness. Any hints of white ash aging are subtle at best. Potency is medium. 3.5

(Taste) Up front expect a generous dose of coriander spice bolstering a milder wheat body, finishing with a dry, bitter citrus and white pepper finish. The saison yeast strain is unmistakeable in the flavor of this beer, and the muted sweetness helps give way to the impact of the white ash on the flavor. While the reservation of sweetness and light body makes for a very sessionable ale, I found the dryness made notes like the white peppercorns and coriander explode into the foreground for an unusual spicy, peppery bitterness. The hoppy IPA angle is the least impressive part of the flavor, with some grassy and lemony notes and a very mild bitterness as well, neither cut through the saison yeast nor the peppery spice to make a significant contribution to the flavor. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, oily and resinous. Carbonation adds a moderate froth and smooth crispness for a texture appropriate for a saison. Balance is dry over peppery bitterness over sweet. Body is light+ for the style, light/medium overall. Alcohol presence is light. 3.75

(Overall) Dr. Krunkles White Farmhouse IPA is a bit more Farmhouse than white and more white than IPA. As before mentioned, I like the white ash addition in this body despite the caveat of a less sweet and less robust malt body it produces. It manages to focus more on the spiciness and earthy peppery notes of the white pepper and coriander, which are not in the least bit hindered by the white ash and produce an IPA-level of bitterness through an unexpected source. The hop-IPA character, however doesn't rise above the farmhouse yeast notes enough to tell it apart from the bitter, dried citrus of the Belgian white body. A fairly busybody brew with so much going on that it's going to be hard to tell if you like it or not. 3.5

22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber color. A nice, durable white head leaves beautiful lacing behind.

S: Fruity, with citrus, pineapple, peach and apricot notes. There is also an obvious Belgian yeast component and a moderate, most peppery, spiciness.

T: Quite spicy at first, with contributions from the yeast and hops, but this fades nicely into a fruity-yeasty-bready mix. Sweet, tart and bitter in roughly equal measure.

Feel: Medium-high carbonation is moderately soft. Medium body; dry finish.

O: A successful and nteresting combination of styles. Well-balanced in that a farmhouse ale and an IPA vie for prominence but neither wins out. French farmhouse, Belgian wit and IPA in nearly equal degree. A tasty brew that changes a bit with warming.

The bottle has a store label of Nov 12, 2013, so I assume it was bottled sometime around then.

The beer is opaque and orange in colour. Looks rather like marmalade. A very large white head on top, quite thick. Good retention and lace.

In keeping with the marmalade colour, the beer has a strong fruit flavour, consisting of orange, peach and banana. A powdery yeast scent is present as well. The smell seems quite heavy, if you forgive the synaesthesia.

Woah - the nose did not quite reveal what was going to happen when I sipped it. The strong fruit flavours are still there - peach the most prominent, along with grapefruit - but there is a powdery bitterness that clashes and is not pleasant. Some Belgian yeast flavours.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.

Overall, OK, but not very good. A real flavour clash.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger foamy and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon zest, pear, apple, tangerine, pineapple, orange peel, coriander, clove, peppercorn, wheat, straw, herbal, grass, light oak, light bubblegum, and yeast funk/earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop, spice, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, tangerine, pineapple, orange peel, pear, apple, wheat, coriander, clove, peppercorn, straw, herbal, grass, light oak, light bubblegum, and yeast funk/earthiness. Light wheat tartness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, tangerine, pineapple, pear, apple, coriander, clove, wheat, peppercorn, straw, herbal, grass, light oak, light bubblegum, and yeast funk/earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of hop, spice, and yeast ester flavors; with a crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice white IPA. All around good balance and complexity of hop, spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Bomber bottle, w/o freshness info that I can find.

Pours lighly hazed dull tangarine, under an oversized off white head thats loose and lasting. Leaving a large and high collar/sheeting and tongues of thicker lace.

Grapefruit all over the nose.

Tart and biting grapefruit on the palate carrying the freight here. Seems more then slightly over carbonated, which had me almost drain pouring it, thinking it had gone bad/infected. After letting it calm down a bit in the bottle, later pours were more agreable.

Citric, hoppy, abrasive, but ultimatly astrigent and at least fairly drinkable and mostly pretty good in a strange over the top sort of way....This will not be for everybody, but if ya like a close to over carbonated and biting grapefruit bomb of a beer, this one is for you...

22 ounce bomber poured into snifter

A - This offering from Terrapin pours up a beautiful clear medium gold with a generous two finger off white head, great retention, and great lacing.

S - oranges and lemon dominate the nose. The smell is actually pretty strong and sort of invades your nose as you take a sniff.

T - This is a nice blending of a regular IPA and a Belgian. A very lemony, grapefruity flavor greets the palate. The finish is more like a Belgian. It is dry with some yeast character but also has some orange peel and coriander notes coming along almost like a hefe.

M - medium thick. Great carbonation.

O - Sometimes blending styles just results in a mess. This one works on just about every level. The IPA and Belgian notes do not compete with one another. Rather they complement each other resulting in a beer that is interesting and nicely balanced.

A: This poured a hazy gold with fluffy off white head.
S: It smelled like fresh grapefruit and grassy hops, with some unripe apricot and spicy Belgian yeast.
T: It tasted like fresh grapefruit and grassy hops, with some spicy Belgian yeast and white peppercorn. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a great experimental fusion IPA. I really enjoyed the scent and taste, but the body was only ok. The finish was smooth and the alcohol was well hidden, so it was easy to drink. Yum.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into an Upland pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy light gold, medium visible carbonation, with just over a finger's worth of white head.

S: Yeasty, peppery, citrus and grassy hops, and a woody dryness.

T: Hop bitter (citrus and pineapple), black pepper, Belgian yeast, cracker malt, with some vanilla oakiness, grass from the farm with a touch of funk. The combination of flavors remind me of coconut on some sips. Juicy fruity bitterness in the hang.

M: Light bubbly body with lots of carbonation sensation. Minimal alcohol presence.

O: I really enjoyed this one, thought it was quite good. There's a lot going on here, so I don't think it would be for everybody. But a pleasant surprise - I went it with tempered expectations.

On tap at Coffee District. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Pale orange. Huge white head. Thick collar. Wispy surface.

Smell - Some citrus hops. Phenolic yeast notes. Lots of pale malt.

Taste - Citrus hops. Quickly overpowered by pale malt sweetness. Very phenolic in the back end. Mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Gets heavy. A little too sweet. Highly carbonated.

Overall - The phenols keep it mildly interesting. Otherwise too sweet and not hoppy enough.

Poured from a 22 oz brown bomber. No freshness date. Purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Very clear golden with a short 1-finger cap of frothy white head that dissipates fairly quickly but leaves some scraps of lace.

S: Peppery with bubblegum and orange/lemon citrus, grassiness/herbal character, phenols

T: A really tangy complex beer. The bubblegum and pineapple and citrus flavors lead things off but are quickly followed behind by slightly medicinal phenols and finshed with a dry, spicy pepper and sage note. Maltiness is lightly crackery but not much else. There is an oaky note in the aftertaste.

M: Lush mouthfeel with slightly heavier than needed carbonation. Body is medium, maybe a little lighter from the hefty carbonation.

O: An interesting beer, maybe a bit too phenolic for me without any malt character to help it along. The bubblegum/pineapple combination is very unique and works well with the hint of oak and pepper that are there. Not a big fan of the sage, herbal quality but it's not off-putting. A nice one to try.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a semi-hazy light amber color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Non-resilient bubbly lacing slides quickly down the glass leaving a thick ring behind.

S- Floral hop aroma with a nice amount of funky yeast that's almost saison-like. Sweet wheat smell with some fruity esters.

T- More rich Belgian yeast flavor plus some spice. Not as much hop presence as expected but what's there is a nice touch. Some sweetness from the wheat rounds things out nicely.

M- Slightly creamy and slick with medium carbonation providing a nice bubbly sensation on the tongue. The body leans toward the lighter side.

O- Though it drinks more like a saison or Belgian pale ale rather than a Belgian IPA, it is very good. Highly drinkable and one of the more impressive Krunkles editions I've had.

Remarkably dry and drinkable, this inquisitive ale blends the worlds of American IPA and yeast-forward Saison for highly "belgo-bitter" tast.

Somewhat of sparkling white wine, the beer erupts with a turbulent pour. As the ale settles a bit, its body is light golden-orange with slight haze. Its frothy and airy white head billows to the top, fueled by the racing carbonation beneath. Semi-stern retention lasts most of the session and intermittently laces the glass.

Its bright grapefruit sings the praises of Pacific Northwest hops in its sharp and acidic scent. And those hops are backed by the light ale fruitiness of lemon, apple, pear and orange. All that fruit is met with equal intensity of yeast spices in white pepper, black pepper, light coriander, alligator pepper and a kiss of earthy cumin. The fruit and spice balance is supported by a thin springboard of dry honey and water cracker maltiness.

Lightly sweet on the tongue, the ale's dry sweetness is of dry bread and cracker with hints of hay and straw. Its middle palate introduces the fruit and spice blend that's pleasantly acidic with citrus and orchard varieties. Its earthy spiciness becomes peppery and grassy as the hoppy finish takes hold. That allows for a dry and dominant citrus pith-type bitterness that lingers in the throat. A light detergent-like character joins in with light distraction to its aftertaste.

Medium-light in body, the beer's zesty effervescence springs from the tongue and pushes the beer into a fleeting finish. Playfully acidic, its nearly wine-like vinous texture invites a grass-derived astringency to accompany its sharp pang of bitterness to close the session.

Dr. Krunkles really jam packs a lot of variance into such a dry and earthy taste. But it gets a bit muddled as the citrus should be "plumper" and its grassy taste should be softly more herbal, but its dry spiciness its his saving grace.

Pours into a large tulip glass an orange tinge lighter golden with a large blooming white head that leaves one full ring of lace as it settles oh so slowly into a frothy mass.Citrusy hops really jump out at ya in the nose then some funk and spice follows.Citric and leafy hops on the palate followed by some medicinal and spiced notes,there is a sourness in the finish that really lingers.I love the hops but don't love the phenols and sour-funk that comes into play,just not my style,it's a quality beer.

Unusual beer. Lot going on here. Poured into a pint glass - looks dull gold when held to the light, more like a hazy light orange on the table. Good sized white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma definitely features the wood. Citrus hops and a little funk are also present.

Flavor still features the wood. There are Saison and IPA elements as well, all nicely blended. The Saison part includes some funky / musty yeast flavor. There is some grassy/citrus IPA bitterness and some pepper spicing.

Mouthfeel is rich with hops bitterness, pepper, and the woody aspect all playing on the tongue.

Enjoyed this one, drank the whole bottle as a slow sipper. Nice!

Pale golden appearance was appreciated, and the head was a bit small for an IPA or a Saison, but was quite durable. The aroma was heavily on the Belgian side of the mix, and was full of hay, horse blanket, and other farmhouse funk. The taste had a nice bubble gum start, followed by a floral flourish, and an earthy finish. Touch of tartness in the aftertaste. Not quite as funky as a true Saison, but close. Unfortunately the IPA side of the equation felt neglected, as hops were far from aggressive. The medium thick feel was just right for an IPA or a Saison, and the alcohol was hidden under complexity. Nice brew, but I just kept wishing for more hops.

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 7.99. No date but this was a late August or early September release. Served in a Terrapin snifter.

Pours a hazy straw golden yellow with two and a half fingers of fluffy white head. Decent retention and a good bit of lace.

Smells like a hopped saison or farmhouse. Some funky yeast, lemon zest, wheat and citrusy hops. Interesting.

No real surprise flavors after the nose. Lemons, oranges, hay, moist wheat, yeast, a little funk and mildly savory spice.

Medium body with a moderate yet tingly carbonation. Slightly resinous but maintains a little dry crispness. Funky, semi tart and bitter citrus peel aftertaste.

An interesting brew. Not a favorite style for me but this is well made and had enough tasty complexity to keep me interested. I enjoyed the bomber but not enough for a repeat performance.

A- Pours a deep orange, golden color that is impermeable. Looks exactly like what the name suggests: like an IPA crossed with a witbier. A nice, creamy white head forms pretty thick and retains well. Leaves big chunks of lacing behind.

S-Oranges, fruity hops, spice, funky yeast notes, dank cheese. Hops make up the majority of the nose, but they do not phase out the pleasant belgian notes of yeast, spice, and sweet fruits

T-A little spicy at first. Spiced hops hit the front of the palate, as it fades nicely into a sweet fruited body at the middle of the palate and finishes with a nice balance between yeast, fruits, and hops. Pleasantly surprised.

MF-A bit overcarbonated. Medium bodied with a dry finish.

O-Usually, when brewers try to combine different styles, one phases out the other and it ends up too one-dimensional, but Terrapin hit the nail on the head here. You get everything the names suggests; hops, sweet fruit, spice, and yeast. All make their presence known. This is definitely one you should drink at a warm temp, as the nuances are more pronounced. Damn tasty brew.

22 ounce bottle - $7.69 at Barrel and Barley in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a ever-so-slightly hazed, bright orange-gold body with a few fingers of white suds. Effervescent.

Smell: Agreeably citrusy, though scantly soapy with a varied range of spiciness, cut wood, and pepper. The malts underneath are understated, at best, with only present mild, subtle crustless bread notes.

Taste: Pale, wheat malts with a slight breadiness, light graininess. Very little sweetness. The addition of the white peppercorns is boosted by the earthy coriander, robust hopping, white ash aging, the orange peels, AND the alcohol. So, the spiciness hits and wraps around the tongue like an old slap bracelet. Lemony hops, also some tangy mango hints, and a slight grassiness. Medium-high bitterness. Drying, citric, bitter, and still fairly spicy on the finish, with a lingering spiciness and bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation, sudsy mouthfeel overall.

Overall: Goes beyond complex and does become a bit jumbled.
