4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottler poured into a shaker. Strong notes of rye bread and citrus as well as some caramel and pine. A big, puffy, off-white head leaves behind a messy webbing of lace. A big poofy island lingers for a long time, but eventually reduces to a thin soapy ring sitting on top of a clear, caramel-orange colored beer. The taste is a medium-high bitter, but balanced nicely with a smooth, medium sweetness. The medium body, oily textured beer has a creamy carbonation. It finishes with a caramel and rye, juicy/syrupy quality with some bread and fruit. The aftertaste is a light, mellow, dry and clean rye grain.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rcvd in trade. Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice somewhat light transparent to somewhat hazy pale brown color leading to light tinges of orange coloring along the sides of the glass. There was a decent light lacing sliding right on into the beer.
The smell had a faded sort of rye note to it along with a light floral yet somewhat spiciness.
The taste was a combination of the previously mentioned flavors.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body and had a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed fairly good for the style and for me as it was harsh but not overly done.
Overall, in my opinion, this was a good Rye Beer I’d have again.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark golden color with minimal off-white head. Aroma is floral with a bit of citrus. Flavor is balanced- somewhat sweet and also hoppy and bitter in the finish. Light-to-medium bodied. Tasty and drinkable. Not too shabby.

On draft in augusta. Not usually a pale ale fan but this one is good. Hoppy aroma and initial taste but finishes smooth.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
