3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy orange body with a bubbly white head leaving behind little lacing. It smeels sweet of citrus and wheat at the same time. It tastes like banana with a bit of a bitter bite to it. It is an easy drinking beer, especially for 7.3% abv. I would drink this beer again but it is one I have to be in the mood for.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A tale of two beers, really - the first pour (from a bomber) was more like a traditional IPA - not very cloudy,lots of crisp citrusy hops, and a dry-ish finish. Not a whole lot of wheat character evident. The second pour, however was really cloudy (yeah, I know, should’ve swirled it before the first pour. so sue me...) and not much head. Not surprisingly, then there is a lot of yeasty sweetness in the glass, with a lot of banana and pineapple mixed with the citrusy, woody hops. All in all, a pretty enjoyable experience.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex hop, malt and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would share this with a freind.

Bomber. Poured fairly clear medium orange with a short-lived whitish head.. nice color to it. The aroma picked up fresh orange meat, bananas, and red wheat.. vibrant, and the hefty hop bill worked well with the rest of the brew.. I wasn’t expecting to like this, but I did. The flavor found tangy orange zest, wheat, and a bit of black pepper over meatier orange and bready notes.. tangy and spicy on the long, warm finish. Medium-bodied, scratchy, and well-carbonated on the palate.. spicy and engaging, but not the greatest flow.. I’d gladly drink it again.

Pretty great for a wheat ale. This is no gumballhead but it is quite tasty. The hops add a nice balance to the wheat which imparts its creamy mouthfeel. Good bitterness at the end but is still an easy drinker.

Pours super hazy orange with a large, fluffy, sudsy white head. Smells strongly of hops and wheat. Tastes like grapefruit and wheat, lots of bitterness! Full-bodied with an almost oily, slick texture and decent mouth-carbonation, Terrapin Side Project Indiana Krunkles finishes with a decent bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz poured into a tulip glass. Color is a cloudy light amber with cream colored head. Aromas are floral and citrus, smells good. Tastes are fruity, citrus, tangerine, and bitter piney hops. The fruitiness of the wheat makes this really interesting. A really nice mix of styles. I am not a huge wheat beer fan, but this makes all the right things happen. Probably the best Terrapin brew I have had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Hazy straw gold pour with a big cracklin’ head and decent lacing. Nose of strong, at times too bitter, citrus and raw yeast. Mouthfeel is pleasantly lively, with a little bit of a spicey bite in the finish. Taste is a bit odd, though, in many ways coming across far more like a cider crossed with a fruity wheat at the expense of any IPA dimension I can detect.
