4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Side Project 17:: 22oz bottle, foil wrapped. Pours golden amber color, white head. Malt aroma, hints of pressed ginger as it warms. Flavors of sweet rice pudding and loads of sencha, with a mild hop bitterness. The bitterness of the sencha tea mellows out the sweetness of the beer over the bitterness of any hops. Finishes with a bit of ginger bite tingle and a far away flavor of tobacco (more from the green tea.) I really think there should be more beer with tea as a flavor component. This beer is a perfect example. (3418)

Bomber to taster at Natifest. Looks fine. Smells and taste sweet, gingery, and hoppy with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

On draft at Tryst. Was excited to try this since I generally like most Terrapin beers. This was overall very hoppy and earthy. It was like most IPA’s I’ve had recently. Good but not great.

Love the experimentation from Terraping, but this was was not a homerun like Indiana Krunkles was for me. Poured an amber with nice fluffy white head. Smell is floral, light citrus and touches of sweet honey. Taste was light and effervesant, but certainly a strange mix. Mild citrus hops, ginger, green tea, some earthiness, hints of soap, jasmine. The green tea lingering and I believe the ginger sting and the Sorachi Ace poking thru are the highlights. Overall, worth the try for something completely different and in the end pretty refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
22oz bottle ---> snifter. Pours a pretty, deep orange with very little head. Smell is bubblegum with a tiny bit of florals. Heavy green tea taste with very mild hop on the back end. Palate is pretty watery with a tongue burn which I suspect is the ginger. One thing I will say is that you could probably pound these things, they are that mild. Another swing and miss by Terrapin.

Subtle flavors and aromas. Clear golden color. Some honey and floral aromas. Flavor has a lot of honey and a decent sweetness. Herbal floral hop flavors with a bit of spice on the finish. Not a typical ipa but an entertaining drink nonetheless

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled poured into snifter. Nice aroma that improved as it warmed. Hints of honey, floral hops, jasmine, and a nice, late note of jasmine laced green tea. Great looking beer, appealing golden color with an ample, constant head. Taste was hoppy with a nice sticky finish highlighted by jasmine again. Don’t really detect the green tea in the taste. Good, refreshing warm weather beer. Unique.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Malty aroma has a firm hoppy overtone plus hints of ginger and - must be jasmine. Pours a bubble, coppery amber with a fairly thick and fluffy ivory white head that hangs around. Flavor is rather hoppy, woody rather than evergreen, only slightly bitter, with hints of malt, ginger, jasmine and green tea. Distinctive and most enjoyable! Firm-bodied texture has good fizz and life, leaving a woody finish that has a hint of ginger. Say - ginger and green tea are supposed to be good for you, ergo, this is Health Beer! ;)

Strong tea aroma (of course). Little to no head. Tea compliments hop flavor. Could use a little more bubby.

bottle. yet another one in the weird ’krunkles’ saga. this guy pours a clear orange. pleasant nose of flowers and tropical melons. flavors of rice pudding, floral jasmine, vanilla, dove soap. medium body and lighly syrupy. i think this beer came out pretty good. i get a little kick of ginger in the finish sometimes.
