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.

A very commanding hoppy presence. Typical IPA flavor. Kind of cool that they imported hops from Britain.

reebtogi (5071) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
355ml bottle pours a golden amber color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and cereal grains with hints of caramel and some floral notes. Taste is a grapefruity hop bitterness with a light caramel and grainy malt backbone. Hops are definitely dominant and pleasant. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, this is probably one of my favorite IPA’s and hope to pick up some more in the near future.

BMMillsy (1787) - Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Pours hazy orange with light frothy head. Smells og straight pine. I can tell this is going to highlight bitter hops. Flavor is an explosion of pine cones and some grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel, with a strong bite on the finish. Good IPA for those who like hop-forward brews. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Tap at Wilf’s Bar & Restaurant (by Amtrak), Portland 08/11/12. Mid amber with a thin off white head. Nose comprises light caramel malt tones, hops, some vegetal notes, a little citrus. Tastes of bitter tropical fruits, caramel malt, touch of grapefruit, more maltiness, mineral tones. Medium bodied with soft carbonation with a bitter hoppy finish. Drinkable but not my kind of IPA - too malty.

jstraw (1946) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Muddy orange-amber with good, creamy, white head / Rich, malty, musty nose of citrus, caramel, and pine / Medium to full body, chewy and malty, moderate sweet and biting, nicely mellow though although drinking late November, with good bitter finish / Rich, thick flavors of orange, grapefruit, soap, chocolate, pine, and caramel, / Has the character, although not the abv, of a double, and especially enjoyed its mellow nature which I don’t know if has always been there or is because I am drinking in late November.
