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

Hoppy aroma. Itís a gorgeous brown with a thick, offwhite head. Roasty flavour with strong hop flavour but very little bitterness. Not overly carbonated, but almost creamy on the palate. Good beer but the lack of bitterness with such strong hop flavour is offputting.

Event: DarkLord Day 2007
Location: Three Floyds Brewing Co. Parking Lot
Serving: Sampled from a growler shared by kp. Thank you!

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Obviously dry-hopped since it smells mostly like hop pellets and grass.
Appearance: Transparent amber/bronze color with a lasting foamy beige head that leaves foamy lacing effects on the inside of the glass. Mild level of visible carbonation.
Flavor: Light caramel, toffee, and honey malts. Orange and pine hop flavors. Subtle nutty quality. Mild bitterness.
Palate: Mild, mellow, and smooth.
Overall: This is somewhat of interesting brew. It would probably be just fine without the dry-hopping. Terrapin might want to work on this one a little bit before they decide to release it to the masses in bottles!

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Pours a dark reddish maroon, with a very small white head. Smells somewhat sweet with a big malty background. The taste is very sweet, kind of bitter, with some molasses and raisins. Big dark fruit as well. The finish however was kind of bitter. Just a wierd beer. The mouthfeel was kind of medium and the aftertaste was lightly fruity. Decent.

Shag (2607) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2007
On tap at KPís. A brown color with a generous head. Some alcohol can be picked up in the nose along with caramel and nutmeg. Some yeast is presence in the flavor and also some nutmeg, caramel, and toffee. The finish is rather sweet. This must be an imperial brown. Good one!

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2007
On draught at the speakeasy. Pour was hazlenut with a small off white head. Nose was very piney and hoppy. Flavor is way off, Finish is terrible. I am having trouble drinking this. Not going to finish the pint. Tasted like dirt mixed with metal and plastic and little rusty particles on top. Otherwise, it was top notch.

Growler shared at DLD. Nutty aroma hoppy with pine, and chocolate ... interesting combo. Light brown in color with a beige head. Bakers chocolate, carmel, nutty, and some piney bitterness. Interesting beer.

Growler shared at Flossmoor: Brown with a light tan head. Aroma, earthy notes, some caramel, and a hint of citrus. Flavor, caramel, piny earthy hops, a bit nutty, and on the sweet side. Pretty solid.
