4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a 12oz Bottle
Appears to be very light, must have been brewed with two row or light grains though has a very robust flavor. Nose is sweet, floral, citrus and hoppy! Not much head on pour, very clear hay yellow color, which is suprising for such a big beer. Slight malt tones with grass hop flavor not much of a citrus note but a little citrus after taste on the tongue. Not as malty as you would think for a big ipa, but does have a nice sweetness. Overall another success from the guys at terrapin!!

Bottle 2014 vintage. I’m not sure of the bottling date but, this has to be over 6 months old at least. Iced tea burnt orange. Malt forward with tea and pine on the aroma. The taste adds bitterness, honey, and sweet caramel malt. The mouthfeel is rich and sticky. This one is such a big iipa that some age has treated it well. Very different from when it was fresh but, still very good. -- Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a tap at the brewery. The pour is a unfiltered orange sweet and malty double IPA . Stricky medium body.

Bottle, yup I drank it straight out of the bottle -- A very malty IPA, a strong base that just has a super thick resinous mouthfeel from all the hops used in it. Very pleasant, definitely a good sipper.

Sweetish, fruity, caramel aroma. Very foggy, orange tan brew with a thinnish ivory head. Drier than it smells, not over bitter, starchy malt flavor, some off vegetal notes. Moderately sweet, fairly acidic. Sturdy mouthfeel. On tap, Whole Foods, Tallahassee.

All the numbers on this one seem off. I'm surprised it's 10.8%, I'm surprised it's 110 IBUs, and I'm surprised it's only rated 3.7. Higher in my book.

This was awesome. Hoppy and boozy, with a punchy citrus hippy presence. Really lovely and a beer that I would love to have more often.

bottle. Just did not like this imperial IPA. Could have been a bad batch, but major alcohol present - not refined at all. Disappointing

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty disapointing DIPA. VERY VERY malty. The malt is definity more powerful than the hop. Not what you woudl expect for somethign called hopzilla. Not very bitter at all. Was this an old bottle? I dont think so. Thin fading head. Somewhat thick on tongue... not bad in these terms. Palate is mild... but honestly some of the other IPA from Terrapin is more of a hopzilla.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper and bronzed coloured body with an orange glow and a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of rich dank hops with a lot of honey, malt, earth and even some perfume at the end. Full-bodied; Strong alcohol and gin notes at first with a kick of resin and pine and a lot of rich malt noticeable as well. Aftertaste has a bit of an alcohol bite at the beginning with some resin, pine, pineapple and floral hoppy notes, all with a very mild sweetness at the finish. Overall, a decent Imperial IPA that shows more alcohol notes than I expected with less sweetness, but the balance is a bit off compared to others that are better for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia on 07-April-2014 for US$3,99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-August-2014.
