COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“It is absolutly paradoxical; we cannot understand it, and we don’t know what it means. But we have proved it, and therefore we know it must be the truth.” -Benjamin Peirce That’s a little how we feel about the last 10 years and the phenominal growth we’ve enjoyed here at Terrapin. Join us in celebrating ten years of Terrapin with an Ale brewed with a Belgian yeast strain, Coriander, two kinds of orange peel and Chamomile. We chose to express this beautiful beer with what has been described as a beautiful equation… sip the beer while you ponder the math and our beautiful universe full of so much possibility! ABV: 10% IBU: 30 OG: 21 FG: 3.1 HOPS: Nelson Sauvin MALT: Pilsner, Malted Rye, Malted Dextrose ADJUNCTS: Coriander, two kinds of orange peel, chamomile

The aroma is sweet and honey like with spices and yeast. The appearance is golden with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a disappointing special beer that seems so ordinary.

Pours an orange amber color. Aroma is very zesty with a heavy Belgian yeast aroma. Very zesty taste with a complex blend of fruit flavors. A nice finish with taste of green apples. One of my favorites. Would definitely drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle. Poured a clear yellow-orange color with a wispy, white head. Aroma had plenty of vanilla notes, some camomile notes there too. Sweet light orange citrus notes, some oak-wood in there. Caramel notes are sweet, some toffee character to it. Taste is moderately sweet here - and quite smooth. Alcohol is pretty well masked.

Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Bomber. Poured very clear, very bright golden with a short, looser-bubbled white head. The aroma picked up warm banana, cane sugar, darker fruits, and a pinch of honey with very prominent floral accents.. coconut and pineapple showed up on the back of the nose.. syrupy sweet on my initial impression, but it really rounded out well.. very interesting stuff. The flavor found bready notes and pineapple meat at the core, with floral notes, white pepper, tart pineapple juice, and alcohol warmth around.. finished with grainy pineapple sugars, orange zest, and floral notes.. it always kept balance between sweet, tart, and boozy characteristics. Medium-plus bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. felt good the whole way, and I don’t recall drinking anything like it.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours a clear bright golden with stringy-lacing white head. Has a fresh biscuity malty nose with light fruity yeasty esters and some cinnamon. Starts with good fullness and light sweetness with a mild bitterness before a semi-sweet biscuity finish.

Bottle. Hazy yellow color, small white head. Aroma of lightly spiced straw. The spice and citrus and much more evident in the taste, and I think they clas a bit.
