COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Terrapin Side Project 12 is none other than the fearless Hopzilla Double IPA. This hoptastic creature clocks in at 110 IBUs and has all the hop explosions of a B-rate monster movie.
Made with 100% Maris Otter malt to back up the barrage of hop bitterness, flavor and aroma, this beast knows no boundaries. With all of this hoppy goodness packed into one beer, we wouldn’t have called it by any other name.

Drake (8546) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Bomber from Whole Foods Market, Glen Allen, VA, opened 9/23/10. Pours a very hazy orange yellow color with a medium creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus, earthy and tropical hops, with coconut and a hint of caramel. The taste is big hops, practically pineapple juice, along with citrus and tropical notes. Pale malts and a bit of a coconut vibe, again. Lingering bitterness. Medium-full bodied. Nice beer.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Draft at Flying Saucer Fall Beer Festival. Pours amber orange with a white head. Great wet hop aroma- floral, fruity, and sweet. Medium bodied with a nice steady carbonation. I really like the Maris Otter malt here, as it provides a great backdrop to the bold, but not aggressive juicy hop bitterness. Semi dry finish. A well constructed Double IPA with nice transititions

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Bottle:   Hazy straw, a little on the dark side, huge sudsy white head, clingy lacing.   Bright pithy nose, learned that from scrizzz.   Citrus peel, white bits, and a bit of alcohol heat on the nose.   Seems to have a mild sweetness.   Hops are minor.   Semi-sweet hoppy/citrusy on the tongue.   Pretty damn tasty.   Has as bit more alcohol burn than I care for, but a little bit of time would fix that.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Very warming, not as heavy as I would have thought.   As I often say, seems like 1˝ IPA.   Moderate body and mouthfeel, decent malt base but not real heavy.   Lingering bright citrusy notes, hoppy without being bitter.   Has character, hoppy, citrusy, with some alcohol flair.   Thanks to jtclockwork for the bottle!

TheEpeeist (3351) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2010
22 oz bottle. Foggy yellow brown with a white head. Nose is orange, caramel, pineapple and grapefruit. Medium body with a buzz. Taste is orange, vodka and juniper. Malts a bit under-represented.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Nose of strong grapefruit, lemon, grassy hops. Flavor is a bit rough and boozy. Bitterness, a heavy does of melon-y and sugary sweetness, and more bitterness and slightly astringent in the finish. Solid, but not my favorite. Definitely more hop heavy than most of their ’hoppy’ beers.

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Draft at Redlight Redlight, Orlando. Likely my favorite IPA that Terrapin has done and maybe the best I’ve had from the southeast region. Super wet and juicy hop aroma. Fresh fruit, citrus and fruit juice sugar flavors. Not too sweet, but fresh as can be. Very nice. Juicy is the best way to describe it. I love it.

HonusWagner (1380) - Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2010
UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 Unpleasant lingering bitterness, bland malt flavor, moderately grassy hop aromas, boozy, and flavors that elicit thoughts of lawnmowers. Ummmm. Didn’t care for this at all... After a nearly 3.5 year break I’ve given this beer another shot. It still sucks. In fact it sucks worse than I remember. It’s all sweet oranges, malty as hell but boozy and astringent. This is kinda disgusting.

Solid all the way, smells of herbs and even hemp. mouth feel is full slightly oily and perfectly carbonated. taste is malt with a taste of grassy, piny hops. very strong. Drink it slowly and enjoy

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle shared by alexdsdad06. Poured cloudy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittesweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a standout beer.
