CharmCityCrab (148) - 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.

Nothing too fancy going on here, just a clean and smooth taste. Higher abv is very sneaky, could see this as an amazing session beer.

Hartung32 (207) - Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Good IPA, and very well balanced. The malt backbone plays better with the hops than most IPAs with a more pronounced malt profile. The main problem is probably the name. I assumed a hop bomb going in and it isn't. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle: Nearly clear, amber-orange with a short beige head. Slightly bready, orange-peel/pine scent. Taste is caramel malt, grapefruit/orange and piney hops. Very lively.

Frothmeister (544) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
12fl oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with sediment floaters and a huge creamy light beige head. Vegetal resinous nose with some booziness, and light caramel. Taste wise, it’s toffee notes with alcohol, spice, resinous hops (the malt profile really makes me think Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA) that kind of falls apart into hopbomb territory (metallic notes, citrus) then a finish of citrus pith. The good parts of this beer I love, and make ignoring the weaker parts very easy. Closer to DIPA than IPA. Recommended.

closey22 (782) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Hazy orange amber wits sting foamy lacy beige head; aroma is rich like Buttery popcorn or a touch of fruit like cantelope(?); Flava is malty soft and tangy sweet notes of cantelope blended with ignt floral hop notes; feels medium to thick with moderate fizz; finishes dry and hoppy bitter;

12 oz Bottle. Tasted on 6/18/14. Beer from Total Wine @ Naples, FL. The beer has a aroma of pine, resin & a lite citrus. Taste was good & similar to the aroma . The was a medium bitter finish that was more dry than sweet. Overall not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance is a dark copper. Aroma of malt and some grassy hops. Taste is well balanced going down but the bitterness lingers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
