COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Terminal Gravity IPA is a copper to honey colored ale with a rich malt character and a clean bitter hop finish. This full bodied beer uses malts from Scotland, Belgium and the Pacific Northwest to achieve a slightly nutty lightly toasted taste. Yeast esters provide hints of stone fruits like apricot and peach, while hops from Yakima and Eastern Europe provide grapefruit and spicy notes.

Appearance has a hazy orange color supporting a fair dissipating head leaving fair lace. Smell has a nice balance with the citric hops and sweet malt. Taste having a bold upfront flavor of an IPA with the piney, grapefruit flavor with the sweet caramel malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

mrmartin (707) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Clear copper pour with medium off white head. Nose is resiny hops and bready malts.. The hoppy front gives in to malty middle for a well-rounded IPA. Body is a little sticky with a bitter finish. Nice hybrid of British and American IPA characteristics.

Tmoney99 (11066) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop and English malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Draught. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose was decently hoppy and a little bitter, but without much of the specific aromas of the hop varietals. Taste was bitter, but without much character. OK drink, but nothing special.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light fruity and malty nose. Mellow, some caramel, sweetness, light fruity hops, cardboard. Decent. I might be detecting some signs of infection, slight for sure in this bottle. Low hop character.

Light copper, clear, off-white head. Aroma of grainy malt with a little caramel, a slight buttery note, fairly subdued hop aroma. Flavor is malt-balanced with some caramel sweetness. Hop character is subdued for an IPA. Wide range of ratings for this beer, this may not be the best batch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
