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.

12 oz. bottle to sampling glass. Lovely dankness from the start with a faint citrus note. Pours fairly clear to a yellowish / orange color, very thin white head with minimal lacing. Nice medium bitterness loads of hops and hints of malt that stays on the palate for awhile. Super drinkable with a nice flavor that lasts!

Good DIPA. 10oz pour into tulip. Pours an amber color with a thick white head that sticks around and plenty of carbonation running to the rim. Nose of fresh flowers, hay, and faint pineapple. Bitter on the tongue with a dry finish and medium carbonation.

Poured from a bottle with a medium amount of head and a golden orange color. It has a strong hoppy and slightly bitter aftertaste.

bkurtz (866) - PERU - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle - Pours a slightly hazy amber/orange with a big, creamy head that also had large bubbles. Aromas of orange, mango, and pine. Aromas meld well in the taste with some bitterness. Good balance, clean finish, nice IPA.

Draft at Broadway Brewhouse. Served in a snifter and a bright vibrant orange. The aroma is sweet juicy hops, but not overpowering. The taste is a nice mix of hops, but almost lacking the pronounced hop profile. Good ipa though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
