3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great beer. I like how it starts like a Belgian and finishes like a IPA. This dry bitterness of the finish is great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: The body is crystal clear with a light amber hue, great color, but the head is very short on the pour and has poor retention.
Aroma: The aroma has fruity medicinal esters, reminding me of cherry syrup, with sweet malts and citrus hops.
Taste: This is an odd marriage of oranges and grapefruit, providing slight bitterness, with medicinal esters and sweet malts. Very odd, but enjoyable.
Palate: Medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: I like this beer more than the ratings indicate, but thatís only because Iím a sucker for the medicinal esters. This is an average beer at best and could easily be solved through some minor changes. Heck just a better head would have given this a higher rating!

Cloudy orange-copper with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and Belgian yeast. Taste is malty and yeasty with alcohol, some nice citrus flavor and mild bitterness. Medium-full bodied. Decent stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle, courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours clear amber/orange with a 1/2" off white head. Not much retention and no lace. Aroma is a marriage of Belgian yeast and juicy citrus hops. Sweet flavor with lots of candied fruit balanced with a hint of funk. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Quite nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very malty fruity aroma. Very light pretty non cloudy appearance. Very floral upfront with spice. A very spicy hoppy Lasting finish. Maybe too much going on but very unique

12oz 2010 vintage
I got to try this recently thanks to a friend and it was interesting. Not quite spicy or funky but definitely belgian. It was orange and had a smell of hops but also something I could not lay my finger on. The taste was the same way. It was neither belgian, belgian-style, IPA, or DIPA, it was weird. It was however good as I find most Terrapin beers to be solid.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, vintage 2012. Dusty caramel in the nose with a lot of grapefruit and citrus, touch of astringency/rubber and nice tripel notes around the side, lightly floral and yeasty in the golden finish. Pours dark golden with lots of carbonation and a soapy beige head that reminds of root beer floats. Taste is sweet with big tripel up front, yeasty-malty (pils) with strong booze that kicks with a boot and warms the chest, hops are somewhat subordinate. Not oily but there are some punishing alcohol fumes, thinner light-medium body. Appreciate all forms of Frankensteinsche Monsters; this one just doesnít work. Think Iíd like the underlying tripel, though, and not the double IPA.
