COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We Consider this an extreme version of an American Pale Ale. It has a very up front floral and citrus aroma from a late cascade addition and dry hopping with Amarillo. This beer also has a big malt background to balance the bitterness of the hops. The rye malt cleans up your palette after you swallow so the hop flavor does not stick in your mouth too long.
Now available in bottles.

Draft. Nose is moderate citrus hops. Full of tangerine and grapefruit, very zest like. Pours a fairly clear reddish orange. Flavor is a moderately bitter taste with a very grapefruit hop presence. Some earthiness. Really e notable. A slightly drying finish due to hop bitterness. Would drink a lot if I got it this fresh often and regularly.

Terrapin Rye Pale Ale has a thin, white head, a semi-opaque, golden appearance, with lazy bubble streams and some light lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of white bread, sweetness, and some hop oils. Taste is of white bread crust, relatively low hop bitterness, and some light rye pepperiness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Terrapin Rye Pale Ale finishes semi-dry and easy drinking. RJT

Bottle. Deep burnt orange, murky with a fluffy off white head. Pine and rye aroma. The taste adds earthy malt, biscuit, and caramel. The rye spice is perfectly balanced. Sweet rich mouthfeel with medium carb. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocJitsu (904) - Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Pours mildly murky, orange-golden color with an ample, fairly well-retaining eggshell colored head. Pleasant sweet citrus nose with some depth set off by the rye. Powdery texture becoming increasingly astringent. Flavor falls a little flat. Particularly, for a rye. Biscuit and some mild citrus. The citrus becomes bitter at the finish.

jdb288 (512) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2014
Draft. Pours clear gold/orange with slight head. Aroma is pineapple, fresh cut grass, orange. Taste is definitely malt-centric...rye comes in aggressively. Not enough sweetness to balance the strong rye presence. Lots of earthy/grassy flavors at play with nothing to balance.

Lightrider (307) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pour is a haze orange. Aroma is of citrus and grass. Taste is a crisp malt with a front end hoppy wash. Finish is clean.

gripweed57 (639) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Slightly hazy yellow gold color with a small rocky white head. Aroma is sweet grainy malt with hints of rye. Flavor is more grainy rye malt with notes of citrus and bitter hops. Smooth and well balanced. Very nicely done. Very drinkable.

4/18/14. Draft at Bull McCabes. Pours golden amber with thin head. Nice hoppy nose. They've done a great job using the rye the build out the mouth on an otherwise sessiony ale. Nice hop and malt balance. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
