"Sometime around midnight in a city nobody can agree on, the idea for Left Hand and Terrapin to brew a collaboration beer was born. Oxymoron is the third in the series of one-time releases between out two breweries. A combination of contradictions embodied in liquid form. Oxymoron is an American-style IPA brewed with three German malts, six German hops varieties, and a lager yeast strain. Obnoxious yet reserved elevated yet modest, it’s the embodiment of blending two brewing philosophies together in order to achieve singularity. Consider it an expression of cruel kindness".

Strawberry copper hue with very thin lacing. Round mouth feel and immediate citrus bitter American-style hoppy punch. Smoothes over with a bright Kolsch light maltiness and then transforms into a sweet light caramel malted finish. The hops still stick around in the finish along with the caramel notes. Very interesting beer. Good work boys.

Bomber picked up from Tower in Buckhead. Poured a clearish amber with a decent white head, faded quickly but left a collar of white foam around the glass. Aroma was super grassy, lots of earthy hops and a bit of caramel malt. This stuff actually smells like it came straight out of the ground, big earthiness all around. Flavors were super clean and crisp. Earthy hops dominate from the get go, fade to a light malty sweetness and end with a big lingering bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel was actually somewhat creamy, medium bodied with lively carbonation. A good yet interesting brew, very drinkable.
