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.

A truly amazing IPA experience. Rich and flavorful, nice and citrusy, not bitter, and with a sweet nose. Really a treat! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lovely citrusy aroma and a nice pour with a foamy white head... Sweet and malty with a nice mouth feel--seems like the name of the brew is lying until you get the aftertaste of almost overwhelming hops that linger a little longer than expected (clearly the guys that came up with the name of the brew know this). Probably works better with very spicy foods or a decent Colorado smoke. I’ll review again once I have the chance to pair it with some Zaxby’s wings drenched in Insane sauce.

Petite bière achetée en Floride. Bière orangée avec une belle mousse et un nez puissant tout en agrumes et en houblons. En bouche, c’est très fort, très houblonnée, donc il faut aimer le style. Léger manque de subtilité, mais c’est là une excellente IPA. Cheers!

Can sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Ariel. Clear amber with a white head. Old hops, mango, ripe citrus aroma, old and stale bitterness, some cucumber taste. Medium body, light bitter and metallic finish.

The best bang for my buck at the grocery store. When my local beverage shop closes before I get off work, I can swing by the local grocer and pick up a 6 pack for a decent price. Probably the best beer out of their poor selection. But, I end up drinking it quite often and enjoy it. Will purchase again, many more times. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft - fruity and citrus nose. Sip adds grapefruit. Bitter indeed. Not in the mood to comment.

12 oz. bottle with a expiration date of 10/18/15. Thanks going to weihenweizen for this opportunity. Dark copper in color with some lasting head in my snifter. Aroma has a mild sweetness with some pine, floral hints and weak citrus.

The flavor shows a mild herbal character with the bitterness coming in the form of moderate resin. The bitterness is firm and lasting after the swallow however, as it warms the malt bill really balances it and almost overpowers the hops. Very approachable and easy enough to drink. Pretty much what I expect from a standard IPA.

Aroma is citrus fruit and tea. The flavor is citrus, fruit, tea and a mix of slight ly dank hops and tart in the finish.

Can sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Ariel. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of stale hops with citric notes and cardboard. Flavor of stale citric hops and nice bitterness. Medium-bodied. 2 months before BBD but already too old.

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.
