3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Maggieís Attic. Well, this is interesting. Itís not massively hopped but the herbal spice seems to mimmick the hops to give it a sharp bitter edge. Itís very drinkable though with plenty of tropical fruit and coconut flavors. Grassy and herbal notes are consistant throughout. Thereís a dry bitter finish. Well done and really solid stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
8 oz. pour at The Pit. The aroma is sweet and malty with a fair hoppiness and some kind of spice, Iím guessing jasmine and looking at the description after the fact, was apparently correct. This is full bodied in a very good way. The hops are interesting. They give it a constant sting and a dry finish but donít quite come to life. Grassy notes are everywhere with hints at cheese and a woody flavor that is almost cedar-like. I like this one despite the relatively timid hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin off-white head of fine bubbles with decent carbonation. Nice hoppy aroma with some roasted malts, floral hops and a bit of toasted coconut upon deep inhale. Color is a medium orange with a slight haze to it. Wow, flavor is lively with jasmine, ginger, dry floral hops and some other spices and herbal flavors. Maybe even a bit of wheat texture and flavor in there. Strong hops presence and bitterness with a light alcohol presence. Finishes bitter and floral. This is a very well balanced and flavorful brew. Very good!

Yum! Poured from a bottle from Hop City. The aroma is refreshing and pleasant- the jasmine really comes through here. Pours a golden amber. The taste is perfect for summer-- the jasmine is light in taste and the ginger lingers on your palate. The best side project I've ever had!

I really like this one. Itís definitely hoppy, on the bitter side, especially.since the rice seems to have thinned out the body. I canít really tell where the tea begins and the ginger and hops end. Iíd say thatís a good thing. Most interesting new Terrapin release in a while.

The pour is hazy dark yellow with a fluffy white head.
The aroma is subdued, lemony citrus, but very faint.
Light bitterness, the sweetness is there but well out of the way.
i donít taste all of that extra stuff at all.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle via trade with smith4498 - Pours a hazy amber color with a 1/3 finger thick off white head. Faint tiny spotted lacing. Aroma is toasted malt and light spice. Flavor is lightly sweetened toasted malt, esters, light spice, and what I think jasmine might taste like. Finishes a little dry. Medium body. A pleasant beer. Thanks Jason.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with a moderate head. Not a lot of smell off this one, but I get hints of hops and some sweetness. Taste is orangey and floral and not very hoppy. An odd IPA

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Total Wine, Fairfax 650ml ($8): Golden with white head. Aroma is light hops, tea, and tropical fruits and stuff. Taste is mostly fruity, dry, and soapy. The hops are very mild, especially for an American IPA. The ginger is definitely there, but in small doses. The finish is very tea-like. Overall, this is a weird, but good IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted on 9/16/12 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours clear orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average lace, leaving lacy residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is pretty strange with the jasmine rice and plenty of tea coming through with just a touch of ginger and a touch of caramel malt. The flavor is really dominated by the green tea, but there are hints of more traditional malt and hops as well, with just a tinge of ginger peaking through. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long jasmine tea finish.
