Draft at the Nook. Amber in the glass with a creamy off-white head that had some lasting and left thick lace. Aroma of resin hop, grass, and light malt. The flavor found light citrus resin and caramel. Light to medium body with a light hop aftertaste.

Bomber from Roy’s in Fort Pierce. Pours unclear orangey orange with some head, and some retention. Aroma has sweet hops and citrusy fruit, somewhat piney but quite syrupy sweet. Taste brings tangerine, sweet caramel, resin - very smooth. Finishes medium and mostly sweet. Quite hop-forward, without as much follow through as hoped, but some hop freshness certainly.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Draft. Pours a golden amber with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy -- grassy, resinous, a bit earthy. Flavor is quite mild -- some nice musty, grassy, resinous hops well balanced against the mild maltiness. Medium mouthfeel. Dry, slightly bitter finish. Certainly less hoppy and pungent than I expected, but still quite tasty. Would definitely drink again.

Bottle pours amber with creme colored head. Aromas are faint for a fresh hop, but some floral and citrus come through. Taste is malty with some grassiness and mildly bitter more like a APA than an IPA. Not bad, but not that interesting. There are many other Fresh Hops that I would reach for before this one. Not too hoppy at all, very mild in fact.

Clear yellow with a hint of amber, big white head, retention, lacing... more malt than hops especially notable in the flavor, a toasty sweetness, lightly dry finish, medium to medium thin body.. hops are very tea like, hey i least i learned something

Pours a clear gold with a thick white head...great lacing. aroma has a pils malt flavor with a light sweetness...leafy, tea notes. Flavor is malty and sweet with a light grassiness...bit of hoppy spice. Mouthfeel is light and finish is slightly sweet. Shoudlve used many more boxes of hops...12 wasn’t enough...at all.

Maybe my expectations were just a little too high. After all, Terrapin knows plenty about making a great IPA, so a Fresh Hop Terrapin IPA should be fantastic. This one was good, but not a good as I expected it to be. Nose is mostly pine and resin but seems way too faint for the style. Taste is similar - slightly bitter, pine, resin, citrus, but lots of caramel malts come through also. It’s good, but just seems too balanced and weaker than I expected.

IPAsavedMYlife (344) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2011
On tap at Mac’s Speed Shop. Typical IPA type scents in here, and some decent carbonation. Head was just about completely white. Taste was very smooth, but not as much hop character that I would have hoped. Not much aftertaste. A nice IPA but not very complex and missing some of the "fresh" element they were going for.
