COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Disappearing thin beige head. Aroma is strong toasted toffee & biscuit, some malt. Flavor is again toasted biscuit & some caramel. Finish is slightly dry with some bitterness. Interesting combo with IPA & Brown ale, but seems to work. ---Rated via @jxray76 on Twitter

This would be my 2nd fav IPA with the turtles. This is just behind hopzilla and in front of hopsecutioner. The brown ale meshes well.

totaaly bitter and a little far from brown ales. Nice brewed indeed but these gfuys are very into hops.

I like it. could be my favourite offering from my not-so-favourite-think-it-is-somewhat-overrated-no microbrewery. Pours a see through brown with a thin white head. the weight/ mouthfeel darkness is reminiscent of holy city porter. good aroma- lots of hops. taste is hoppy and sweet all at once- well balanced. Much better than the much less interesting brown all from bells brewery. definitely get the piney/ citrusy west coast hops on the palate balanced with a nice sweetness from the dark malt. Little bit of pepper on the palate. Overall a good offering. 12 oz bottle from zillies.

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Appearance: Pours brown, letting minimal light through. Not much of a head on this beer, a mere thin cap of white swirls.

Aroma: Sweet brown sugar-like malts, lemon zest and just a nice citrusy hop nose.

Taste: Caramel or honey covered toast, citrusy hops. Cereal, light amounts of chocolate.Finishes with peppery hop spice.

Mouthfeel: Active carbonation, medium bodied. A little peppery roughness.

Overall: A very easy to drink hop forward beer.

gripweed57 (592) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Clear deep mahogany brown color topped by a big rocky beige head. Fragrant toasted malt aroma with notes of brown sugar and plums. Rich toasted malt flavor with a spicy, peppery hop backdrop. Slightly tangy with a chewy dried fruit resonance. Reminiscent of toasted nuts and raisins. Overall, a very tasty and unique combination of complex malts and hops.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Mahogany brown pour with a thin head of spotty lacing. Aroma is very malty, with plenty of nuttiness and some nice fresh west coast hops hiding in the background. Flavor is rich brown ale with a hop punch that comes from behind. Had I not known to expect the strong hop presence it would have surprised me. This was all brown all with a pleasant addition of well-executed hop accents.

Bottle. Pours clear ruby brown with a medium tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is pine, caramel, roasted malts. Flavor is the same, touch of coffee. Light sweet, light bitter. Medium body. Not bad.
