COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Legend had is Captín Krunkles is the most feared pirate on the high seas. No one has seen him, his ship, or the great beer his band of pirates drinks has lived to tell about it. Until now. Made with a bombardment of hops to defeat your tastebuds in battle and all the black malt you can stand before walking the plank, this Black I.P.A. will make it worth going down with the ship.

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.

Pours dark brown with khaki head. Toasted malt and pine hop aroma. Flavor is more roasty than other balck ipaís Iíve had. Moderate hop bitterness. Decent, but I wouldnít seek this out again. Medium body with moderate carbonation. This one is somewhat of a letdown; I was hoping for more.

Not quite black but more deep brown with off white head and thinned lacing on the side. Thinned bittering hops step off the top with some light roastiness coming through on the side of the smell, although the aromas feel a little flat. The taste itself is lightly bittering with a laser directed cedar/pine floral kick which is nice but lacks rounded mouthfeel. A decent brew overall and unique approach.

So elusive and rare! I played a losing game of hide and seek with this guy for awhile. Then I picked one up at my local store, sadly in non-growler format; although, I did consider buying a few and pouring them into a growler just to taste the totally awesome rarity effect that sitting inside 64 ounces of glass apparently has on this beer. I was too dazzled at the tasting opportunity to review at the time. From notes. Pours near black with a bit of head. Nose is some citrus hops and a good deal of roast. Taste is slightly bitter and dry with roast. Hints of coffee. Nice citrus and a bit of pine. Medium body. Pretty good. Itíd take on the good captain again.

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.
