Tap. Golden with foamy white head. Light toast aroma plus fresh pear. Light flavor- not too sweet, not too dry. Funny grainy end.

Gachupines (796) - USA - NOV 8, 2011
Amber appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is fresh hops, somewhat piney. Flavor is very hoppy, a little resinous. Could have a little more malt to balance it out, finish is a bit thin. Overall, solid beer, especially with some spicy food. Would pick it out again.

dbarnold (1125) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Has almost no nose but what develops is a refershing, moderately hoopy beer. Tastes extremely fresh and clean and leaves the palate quicly, which I like in an IPA. It’s not a dominator like most terrapin beers, but it is satisfying and pretty tasty. A good strong nose on this one would make it a true winner.

AR (997) - Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Strong aroma of pine/fir, sort of like being in an evergreen forest. The strong malt flavor with caramel base were predominate over a distinctly high hop presence. Very nicely blended.

Draft. Pour is hazy amber/brown with a decent biege head, some lacing. Aroma is fresh hops: citrus/floral notes, with caramel and biscuit malt. Taste is very malt forward, biscuity, with citrus hops, and a weird vegetal/earthy note. light-medium body, average carbonation, oily texture, bitter finish.

12 oz draft pours and orange/amber color with a nice white head. Aromas of oily hops, grapefruit and resin. Oily mouthfeel with a nice bitter finish

22 ounce thanks to Debi. Slightly malty and a bit on the sweet side. Some citrus hops balance it out. Not a big Harvest fresh hop beer, but decent.

wedgie9 (1792) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Tasted on 10/20/11 from a 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours a beautifully bright, very clear amber with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to thick, uneven lace. The nose is quite hop forward, as expected, with a ton of floral and citrus notes. There are also aromas of bread malt, and a nice bit of earthiness as well. The flavor is more of the same, with very floral and citrus hops, the malts a little sweeter than I expected, a hint of soapiness, and the earthy note from the nose. The body is medium with average carbonation, a sticky texture, and a long, citrus and floral hops, with a bit of an earthy finish.
