Excellent nose on this one. Very drinkable. It's easy on the ABV, too! Great brew out of Athens. Poured from a keg at Pour House, Tampa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

Had this on tap. Decent amount of head, smells somewhat hoppy but not really pronounced. Earthy hop taste.

SPDickerman (975) - Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Pours light gold with a large white head. Smells hoppy, citrus and flowers, and of mild caramel. Taste is bitter and floral with hints of sweetness. Light-to-medium bodied with a prickly texture and fair mouth-carbonation, Terrapin Easy Rider finishes with floral bitterness.

Cybercat (3370) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 Aroma is quite hoppy with a fruity undertone, a mixture of apple and sour orange - more like an IPA than an amber ale. It pours a beautiful clear amber with a thick and fine-bubbled off-white head that leaves generous lacing. Malty flavor has a strong hoppy overtone, just a little bitterness, and hints of sour orange, grass and yeast. Texture has average body but plenty of fizz, leaving a nice tingly and hoppy finish that has a touch of yeast. Yes, definitely an enjoyable one. Better on-tap than from a bottle!

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Top notch. Caramel and bready tones blend with grapefuit hop aromas. Yellowish gold with a white head. Bitter with a balance of biscuit sweetness. Medium bodied with a nice hop crispness and a bitter finish.

On tap at Porter Beer Bar. Pours a clear gold with a light amber hue with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces nicely. Aroma has a good amount of grapefruit with a hint of dankness that is backed by a good amount of sweet grains and light hay note. Flavor begins with a nice grassy and light grapefruit hoppy note that mellows slightly to allow a bit of a grain finish to come through. Works quite nicely and is very drinkable.

very clear pour with a medium amber color. nice head. hoppy aroma in the bottle. Taste is good, but could have more malt flavor. it’s ok but not a top notch beer.

changeup45 (1717) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Had a few pints of this at my local. Good beer, really nice and refreshing stuff to just kick back to. Light-bodied with nice subtle flavors of citrus, mineral, grass, straw. Crisp on the palate with a dry hoppy bitter finish. Perfect for chilling out on a hot Saturday afternoon.

rajendra82 (954) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2012
The attractive amber colored body looked clear, with visible streamers of gentle carbonation feeding a one finger thick head. The smell was very hoppy for the style, with lots of grapefruit and orange peel on the nose. The taste followed the trend set by the smell, with a mineralized hoppy taste. There was not much of a malt presence here, which made the mouthfeel quite dry. Not much of an aftertaste either. Typical APA for the most part, and easy to drink like the rest of them.

Smell is nice dank earthy hops, head retention is pretty laughable. Color is maybe a shade or two darker than a gold color. Reasonable carbonation. I really don’t understand the Amber Ale category... Mouthfeel is medium. Palate is mostly hops, malt is pilsner(ish). Head is completely white. At 4.5% it’s tough for the palate to come all the way though. My only real issue is the branding... how cheesy! Enjoyability 3.5/5
