The aroma is hoppy with pine, grass, toasted malt, and a small amount of coffee. The appearance is dark brown with a nice head. The taste is like the aroma and quite hoppy. The palate is smooth. Overall a good but not great beer.

Terrapin doesnít do it again. Draft at trappeze. Iím sure this is their India brown ale recipe. Nondescript. Tastes like all their other brews. Weak.

Thanks blazer06 for the share. Pours brown with an off-white head. Nose is smoke, malt, citrus, and pine. Flavor is similar with blunt bitterness into the finish. Unique, but not the best beer Terrapin has done.

Acquired in a trade. Enjoyed in a Hill Farmstead Glass.
A - Gorgeous hazy wheat appearance with a golden light appearance. No head whatsoever.
S - Gigantic Bavarian wheat scent. Fresh wheat and light apricot scent. Very mellow hop scent. Loads of pineapple and lemon zest. Very nice and harmonious. Great balance really.
T - Yeah. Hard to tell a big difference between the hops and the wheat. Itís basically 50/50 with a big dry german yeast. Pretty well balanced but a very dry wheat taste on the finish.
M - 100% carbonation. Very borderline medium / light body. Big wheat and lemony finish.
O - Nice beer. Itís not a great wheat IPA but itís decent.. 81/100.

22oz bottle, courtesy of Mario. Thanks, dude! Pours a dark, cola-brown color; high clarity; small-bubbled, very light tan head, nicely creamy, with solid retention and lacing that sticks; attractive pour. Kind of a muted aroma, showing piney and mineral-like bitterness, and a watery roasted / ashy malt presence; very nondescript, slightly burnt, barely there. Medium to M-F body; moderately high carbonation for what weíre working with here; hints of warming, vinous / red-fruit alcohol presence; slightly rough around the edges; overcarbonated, almost fizzy presence in the mouth; medium amounts of burnt / roasted malts, moderate, non-resiny piney and mineral bitterness, but just very little here in terms of nuance or well-presented hop character; the malt core is simply blah. Lasting, basic mineral bitterness, touches of charred malts.
