Copper pour. Good citrus floral wisp off the top. Carmel reisiny body, rather smoothed out and subdued but with a lingering hidden strength. Easy drinking. Solid character overall

Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear amber, brief head. Rich mango aroma. Mid-sweet with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Slick crysta malt covered in generous amounts of tropcial fruit-like hops. Powerful bitterness. A tasty hop driven beer, albeit with somewhat shallow malt profile.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quick review, as Iím being rushed. It has a clean orange colorw/ no carbonation to speak of, but has a frothy off-white, nearly light brown head. It has an awesome hop nose, a little malty and alot hoppy but honestly the flavor is a little lacking. Not a bad thing, just a little bit of a let down. I wouldnít peg this as anywhere near 78 IBU. Still, a lovely beer with a sweet malt palate and a musky finish.

On Tap. Aroma of grapefruit and pine. Hazy golden body with medium frothy head. Flavor is dominant of grapefruit and pine, hints of citrus with a nice balance of hops... slight bitter aftertaste. Overall, a well rounded IPA

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a mostly translucent deeper golden amber with a medium creamy/bubbly off white head that laced. Aroma of a handful of fresh American hops. Grapefruit, pine, floral notes and other excellent citrus hop character. Some caramel and bready malt poking through. Flavor is another heavy does of hops. Fresh and resiny, pine, grapefruit and orange. There is some cereal grains and caramel malt there to help balance. Hop bitterness is perfectly aggressive for the style. Very well done

On tap at Redlight. This beer has a nice hop aroma, mostly clear amber appearance with minimal white head. Taste unfortunately doesnít quite deliver enough of the nice hop flavor from the nose. Iíve tried this in the bottle and this was even more evident. The taste is there and I like it, but itís just not quite assertive enough to light up my taste buds the right way. I like how the beer feels in my mouth, though: medium body and clean texture with no stickiness. Quite drinkable. Iím a big fan of Terrapin and have eagerly awaited this release. Even though itís not the "PlinytheElder of the East coast" I was hoping for, Iíd gladly drink more of this in the future.

2009 Bottle - Thanks Beerlando! - Pours clear orange amber with a large off white head...aroma immediately brings me back to harvesting Cascades from my backyard last year, tons of grapefruit pith and resin, fresh and floral, caramel malt playing in the background...flavour is not quite up to the task, light citrus fruit, burnt grain and some toffee...lingering bitterness, but nowhere near the bite I expected...the nose overpromised IMO...pretty good, maybe it had fallen off a bit...

Nice copper color. Earthy, citrus, light malty aroma. A light spicy bite. Flavor has enough hops to keep me interested but not extreme. Some sweet malts and herbals hops, too. A good IPA.
