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

bottle pours dark amber with big head. Aroma roasted malt and grassy hops. Taste is bitter roast, easy drinking, pretty good, like a hoppy porter

Bottle courtesy of Biggsbowler. Pours a nice rich brown with a decent off white head that fades quickly. Aromas are citrus and floral hops, then a nice caramel dose and finally some bread. Flavors are mellow citrus hops, then a big dose of caramel malts, followed by some burnt sugar sweetness and a finish that is grassy and bitter. Palate is a little thin and undercarbonated. Overall, this is an excellent beer if taken by itself, but the style is an oxymoron in and of itself; let’s call it and India Brown Ale which makes more sense than any other moniker these beers go by. Still nice to drink.

Very dark brown with a frothy light beige head. Decent lacing. Aroma of spice, chocolate, roast, and biscuits. The taste is roasted and a little chocolaty bitter and a little off. Medium bodied; a little creamy and a little dry. Ok.

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.

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.

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.
