CharmCityCrab (203) - Maryland, USA - APR 10, 2013
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.

Bottle. No detailed notes - plenty of folks have covered it. A little sweeter than you might expect, and not as OMG HOPS as you might like given the name, but a really good IPA nonetheless.

yngwie (15190) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a small, off-white head. Quite malty aroma, with bread notes, some spent grains and a decent amount of citrusy, piney hops. It’s full-bodied, with a nice carbonation level, Some sweetness in the flavor, but the hops dominates. Resins, pine cones and a nice bitterness. Lasting bitter and quite malty finish. Overall, too malty for my liking, but it’s a fine brew indeed. Could easily drink more of it. 150622

Meilby (9451) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle 355ml @ Hotel room, The Latham Hotel, Philadelphia, PA
Pours hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, pine and floral. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long malty, caramel, citrus and grape finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

bartlebier (2536) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2015
From notes, sampled on draught and bottled in Athens/GA, IX/2012ish. Restrained floral hops on a clear, honeyed crystal malt base make this an easy, intermediate IPA. Not bursting with C-hop expressivity in aroma, even going on a near-European earthy bitterness in its mid, with some quenching resins to seal the clean, well-mannered deal. Not entirely worth its abv investment.

beeratarian (160) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Pours copper to hazy orange. Aroma is very light hops and some malt. Flavor is medium body with a little toasted malt and some hops. Smooth drinking beer but not a hop head dream.

falco242 (324) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Solid IPA...nice fruity notes with grapefruit in there a bunch. A malt backbone is present and doesn’t present a ton of bitterness or pine but I’m a fan of that.

Draft at flying saucer Nashville from notes. Very juicy, loads of grapefruit and orange citrus dominate.
