COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Volume 5: This new age beer style is a fusion of two great brewing traditions that are worlds apart - a hoppy American Double IPA and a classic Belgian Tripel. Beware the Gnome in the funny green hat!

From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a thin foamy white head. Tastes smooth, light, crisp. Like creamy hops, molasses, hints of citrus. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells fermented, with hints of grapefruit, hops, toffee.

mojoman (158) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle. Autumn leave amber in color. Nose of cloves and tropical fruit. Matches the taste. Not much lace. More sweet fruit than I would have expected. Above average brew IMO. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is definitely a Belgian IPA, and Terrapin does an excellent job of letting the IPA-like aspects shine through. Sometimes these beers just taste like a slightly bitter Belgian Ale. Pours a deep orange amber with white head. Scent is all booze and malts. Starts and finishes with a solid mix of bitter and sweet. Light medium body with good carbonation. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

I’m tasting much more Belgian trippel then double IPA. That doesn’t make this a bad beer by any means, but will be a disappointment for anyone expecting anything resembling a typical DIPA. Theres a nice bitterness, and as you get halfway thru and the beer warms, that IPA comes out of hiding a bit. Glad I bought the 4-pack but not my favorite of the monster beer series.

12oz bottle into a goblet. Pours a clear medium copper with a thin white head. Some splotchy head retention along with a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Aroma is quite Belgian-like with clove and banana along with bread. There is some tropical fruit mixed in with that but it is on the light side. Some floral and perfume notes. Clove and perfume on the taste along with lots of flowers. There is a muted tropical fruit character along with some ethanol. Bread and toast is buried underneath along with a moderate bitterness helping to balance out the sweetness. Overall, a decent Belgian IPA but it all fees a bit muddy. I would like a little more hop character and less alcohol taste. Nonetheless one to pick up should you come across it.

Pours a subtle hazy amber with a thin lace of off-white head. Aroma is banana and cloves with also some pungent citrus and pineapple esters. The flavor is good but the bitter IPA tendencies seem to clash with the sweetness of the belgian triple. This opposition does tend to wear down a bit after the beer has been allowed to breathe and mellow out a bit.

Fruit, herbs, and hops in the nose blended with a subtle yeast smell. Golden with a white fluff. Bitter with balance. Medium bodied with a bitter herbal finish.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 pours a dark copper. floral up front spicy in the back. Not bad, but not the best terrapin side project. On tap at Terrapin Tap Takeover @ Argosy, ATL.
