4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy yellow, white head. Interesting mix of citrusy hops, grassy hops, herbal notes from the pepper and just a dash of woodsy flavors. Good body and a good drinking beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
A: Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber color. A nice, durable white head leaves beautiful lacing behind.
S: Fruity, with citrus, peach and apricot notes. There is also an obvious Belgian yeast component and a moderate, most peppery, spiciness.
T: Quite spicy at first, with contributions from the yeast and hops, but this fades nicely into a fruity-yeasty-bready mix. Sweet, tart and bitter in roughly equal measure.
Feel: Medium-high carbonation is, perhaps, a tad too high. Medium body; dry finish.
O: A successful, interesting and well-balanced combination of styles. Farmhouse ale and IPA vie for prominence but neither wins out.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Aroma includes brett mixed with hops and hints of spice and citrus. Hazy, murky orange with a frothy white head and nice lace. Dry initial mouthfeel with a fully evervescent mouthfeel and a Belgian aspect. Hops are there but this is anything but an American IPA. Points for uniqueness. Unique and enjoyable; could be a little sweeter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another solid "Krunkles" Side Project offering from Terrapin. Orange-like with a booming off-white head. Lots of scattered lacing sticks to the sides of the glass like cobwebs. The aroma shows a lot of herbal character to it. There’s orange blossom, tropical fruit, cotton candy, grassy, and yeast all present as well. The flavors are a bit sweet upfront with cotton candy and tropical fruit notes before drying out mid palate and into the finish. Spices and orange rind provide a contrast to the sweeter character with some firm hoppy bitterness in the finish. Grassy notes mix in with an overall very mild yeasty funk to it. It certainly comes across as a Belgian IPA and a beer that I found plenty enjoyable, but not outstanding.
