The Terrapin Hop Karma Brown IPA is a head on collision between a hoppy west coast India Pale Ale and a malty, complex brown ale. Brewed with 5 varieties of hops and 7 different malts, this hybrid style represents the best of both worlds. PEACE, LOVE and HOPPINESS

Pours dark mahogany with tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is much different. Still has some roasted malts, but it is loaded with bitterness...piney and delicious. A bold and tasty version of a brown IPA.

12 ounce from four pack bought at Asheville Whole Foods. Big brown pour. Kind of a sweet sherry taste. Some say citrus but more sherry and brown with slightly hoppy style. Different.

Draft at Crispy’s. Amber body with tan head. Moderately hoppy but not overwhelming. Good but not all that memorable.

deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Deep brown with reddish tint; khaki head and that disapates fairly quickly, but leaves some splotchy lacing. Aroma is bready, toasted malt, and a bit hoppy (orange). Taste is moderately sweet with a long bitter finish that is somewhat dry. The body is lighter than i was expecting - just south of moderate. Overall, goes down smooth, but there is active carbonation that makes this beer slightly fizzy. A decent beer.

Bottle from trade with jrob21. Marked best by week 3 of July. Pours dark brown with a small head that quickly fades, leaves a little webbing. Smells nice, like liquid candy. Sweet caramel, nuts, light fruit, lightly burnt sugar, grassy hops. Taste has a nice sweet caramel and nutty taste up front with a strong hoppy bitter finish. Some fruitiness comes through too, raisins and red fruit. Thin to medium body. Mouthfeel is a little fizzy, a little overcarbonated I think. Overall, really nice flavors and aroma but the below average mouthfeel keeps it from being great. Still very enjoyable.

Pours brown with tan head. Aroma is dark and rich malts laced with bitter hops. The flavor has both of the malt and hops but I would say it puts more of an emphasis on the malt. Their definitely is a hop presence, but I would say the sweet smoky malt character is really what carries this beer.

I like black ipa’s and this is very close to those. Nice malty taste with just enough hop. Very enjoyable.

It pours dark brown with a tan head that leaves a perfect ring of lacing. The aroma is primarily the malt with just a hint of hop undertone. The taste is quite similar. It’s like a rich brown. Pretty full in body and rather complex. I think this "hybrid" works! It’s different, tasty, and pleasant on the palate. Surprisingly well balanced and well done!
