I?ve been saying for years that Terrapin ought to expand their distribution area into Maryland, and here they are. The nickname of the University of Maryland football and men?s basketball teams (and all their other sports for that matter) is the Terrapins, which makes this a natural for tailgating, watching games on television in home or bar settings, and to plain old show some Maryland pride (With a beer from Georgia... Don?t think about it too closely, especially when we?re playing Georgia Tech ;) ).Anyhow, the name, label, and logos are strong, and the beer itself is a very reasonable bitter IPA with a malt taste that is stronger than in some IPAs but not to where the hops don?t take control and I?m forced to use the word all hopheads dread- "balanced". ;) Okay, I just used the word, but its in quotes so it doesn?t count. ;) Nothing spectacular, but a decent example of the style. Aroma is a little mild, which puts it just a hair beneath a Torpedo or something like that. EDIT: I appreciate that they took the opportunity to include not only the month, but week its freshest by on the label, but its not that useful without the YEAR. Is like to say there’s no chance a liquor store would leave a beer out so long that year becomes relevant, but we’ve all seen it happen. If its a question of label space, just give us a month and a year rather than a month and a week. They’re being really specific in one sense at the expense of the most important piece of information.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Alaranjado âmbar de leve turbidez, espuma laranja de boa formação e persistência. Aroma tende para o resinal, lupulado, abacaxi maduro, caramelo. Paladar de médio dulçor e amargor. Corpo e carbonatação médios. No final o malte fica mais aparente, mantém o resinal, média persistênci, mas merecia mais potência no paladar.

Piney dank hop aroma with some tropical hops. Taste is the same with descent malt balance. Not too thick, just enough malt to still be easy drinking. Dank almost earthy finish with some additional tropical hops. Mostly dank earthy. Solid ipa, but average for the most part.

12 oz can..from a six pack..bought in a small convenience store in Tyrone GA
Poured into clear plastic cup in hotel.
Pours a nice dark orange with a nice thick off white head..great lace.
Sweet malt and fruity, citrus hop aromas.
Taste the same as aromas..balanced..bitter orange and toffee..nice but not what I am used to.
Mouthfeel is OK..well carbonated and medium body...getting too much raw alcohol in there also
A average IPA...far from Oregon.
