bottle, clear amber orange colored with soapy looking foam, aroma and flavor are more malt and caramel than anything else with some thin piney notes, disappointing

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2010
10/15/10. Bomber. Amber/red pour with a nice off-white head that lasts as a ring but doesn’t lace much. Deep sweet citrusy fruit aroma with definite orange and grapefruit combined with some earthy hoppiness and definite toffee/caramel. Rich malty caramel and toffee background that lingers with orange and grapefruit and a hint of cream. Actually quite nice.

mcberko (5941) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
22 oz. bottle, courtesy of and split with Glouglouburp (thanks Dany). Pours a mostly clear coppery orange with a huge white foamy head. Aroma is quite dusty and earth, with sweaty clothes, floral and earthy hops, apple cider and dust – doesn’t smell so fresh, really. Flavour is very doughy, fresh dough to be exact, light floral hops and a bit of subtle apple cider. Tastes more like a semi-fresh doughy pale ale – not very hoppy at all, but easy drinking dough bomb. Solid, but flawed.

douglas88 (5798) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Bomber thanks to David. Pours a clear dark caramel color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet earthy hops, syrupy Amarillo. The flavor is nice; sweet candy and fruity Amarillo hops, dry, light toasted malts. Smooth. Not aggressive but nice.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Light citrusy nose, a touch eathy and leafy, a little iced tea. Pours golden amber with a creamy lasting head and nice thick sheets of lace. The flavor has notes of caramel, iced tea, light floral hops, a little citrus here and there. Light fresh resiny leafiness lingers in the finish. Easy to drink.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Very hoppy with citrus and grapefruit and almost tropical like punch notes aromatically. Fresh hop tones that die out a bit in terms of taste, the punch tones dissipate and the flavor is more grassy, hints of bread, and honey tones. A bit prickly in terms of bitterness and carbonation. Still very good overall.

thirdeye11 (5481) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2011
(22oz bomber thanks to blutt59) clear amber with soapy tan bubbles. Nose of candied citrus, cream, and fresh citrus with the leaves and all. Some caramel in the nose also. Taste of caramel, biscuity, bready, nice linger.

PorterPounder (5344) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2010
DeLand, Fl - Abbey, on tap. Pours a deep dark copper, sticky khaki colored head that leaves nice, thick lacing. Strong, fresh sprucy aroma with some fresh floral notes. The flavor has a nice bitter edge to it with requisite grapefruit bitterness and some nuttiness thrown in for good measure and just a hint of minty goodness. Very fresh. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Another solid entry from Terrapin.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, lightly floral, citrus, and a bit of pine. Taste of citrus, grapefruit, pine, citrus, toffee, with a lightly resin finish.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber pour with a very small, foamy white head. Aroma is strong, wet Amarillo hops. Soft spicy notes and caramel as well. Taste is fresh Amarillo hops, soft caramel, sweet malt and spicy notes. Body is medium with a creamy carbonation and a resinous feel. Ends with more fresh hops, spicy hops, caramel, sweet malt and fruit notes. Nice!
