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.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep, transparent copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, a lot of caramel and pale malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. Could be hoppier and less malty.

EricTeusink (657) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Another of the "Huh? I haven’t rated this yet?" variety. Pours a slightly red for style amber. Scent is citrus, champagne, and earth. Big bop bite is half hop half carbonation. Back end malt is atypical of usual sweetness found in IIPA’s. Lively on the tongue. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

Poured from a tap. Clear golden color, medium white frothy head. Nice floral hops and pine aroma. Light sweet hops character with a mild sweet bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrunkSanta410 (215) - Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pour is clear and golden. Fast dissipation of head. Aroma is tropical fruit and pine. Taste is very tropical fruit, pineapple sweetness. Pine notes follow with solid hop bitterness. Very good. Palate is lightly carbonated. Good.

Gooball201 (38) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 Has to be good. Terrapin is a decent brewery. Glass been using is killing everything so giving it benefit. Will come back and amend when #2 goes down if no improvement. Amended upward!

Ed5388 (1970) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2014
12oz bottle shared with JohnGonk. Pours a clear golden orange color with a thin foamy off white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, some pineapple, and caramel malt. Taste has lots of caramel maltiness, with notes of older citrus fruit, citrus zest, and pine.

jcnielsen (1952) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours an orange color with white head. Citrus, tangerine, hoppy, orange aromas. Citrus, orange, resiny, hoppy flavors. A bit goopy. Nice hop flavors but a bit thick and high in alcohol for my taste.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass. Delicious and hoppy - one of Terrapin’s better beers

TreborWhip (392) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle pours a hazy amber with light tan head. Aroma of citrus. Flavors of ruby red grapefruit, a hint of orange peel, and pine with a great tongue-tingling hop bitterness.
