Red, with a loose white head. Smells like fresh, grassy hops. Tastes is fresh hops, as well. Not a whole lot of extra dimensions to this, but I really like it. Tap, Flying Saucer, Nashville.

22oz bottle. Poured a amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma was hoppy, grapefruit, caramel, oranges. Flavor was citrus, good caramel balance - heavy on the hops in the finish. Not bad!

On tap at Galaxy Hut. Pours an amber copper with a bit of a white head and some rig lacing. Nose is really sling hops and a good dose of Harpoon yeast. Side note: I need to find out what that is. Taste has slight hops with some pale malts. Light body with low carbonation. Drinks well but is not as advertised. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-26-2010

22oz. Bottle: Pungent hop aroma with notes of pine, evergreen, grass, hop leafs, resin, light grapefruit, and some plasticy glue. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium bitter and lightly sweet. Tastes of fresh hops, malt, light caramel, pine, water, light grass, and resin. Medium body. Lightly tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Hops, malt, caramel, and slight resin finish is lightly dry.

jgb9348 (4946) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Crisp copper coloured body with a ruby glow and a thinnish, relatively fast-dying tan head. Aroma of plain and simple, fresh piney hops with a very noticeable resiny scent and a touch of caramel. Effervescent medium-bodied; Strong biting piney hops up front fades very quickly to a mild malty backbone and a touch of nuts and bitter caramel. Aftertaste is light, especially for the style only showing a minor sweetness and maybe a touch of hops, but not enough to be bittering. Overall, a pretty big let-down considering the style and the great [retro] named beer. Even those who like IPAs should probably pass this one up due to its lack of hops and its high price. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Bon Vivant Market in Smithfield, Virginia on 14-October-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 17-October-2010 (3 days after they said they got it in store to mouth) for US$10.20!!!

Tap at TJs. Pours a mostly translucent golden orange with a medium creamy off white lacing head. Aroma of grassy and orange hops, tea/nutty maltiness. Flavor of grapefruit, orange and floral hops, tea, nutty and bready malt.

Thanks to the Atlanta crew for sharing this one. Pours yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is nice malt backbone and a ton of floral, citrus, and pine hops. Fresh hops are all around, and very good. Flavor has similar qualities with a huge hop, grass, pine, citrus, and floral presence. A very enjoyable beer, one of my favorites from Terrapin.

22 oz bomber from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Poured a nice super deep burnt orange/amber with ana verage sized frothy super light khaki colored head. Aroma of super fresh hops, juicy fresh oranges, toast and lemon zest. The body is medium with only a slight hop bite and the carbonation is just a tad to stingy for my taste. Flavor of hop cones, grapefruit rind, yellow grapefruit pulp, bread crusts. Nicely done but I found the aroma a bit more pleasing then the aroma.

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.

ben4321 (4385) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 11/7/10

Aroma: The nose is mostly grass and pine, with some vegetation, toast, and a drop of spice
Appearance: It pours a clear, pale orange color with a small, bubbly white head
Flavor: Taste has some bitter hops and resin, some toasty flavors, just misses the mark a bit
Palate: The body is medium, it has moderate (plus) carbonation, and a dry, slightly rough finish
Overall Impression: Unfortunately, this one doesn’t quite hit the mark. I was expecting a little more from this one, as I’m a big fan of fresh hop IPAs and I generally like Terrapin’s stuff as well, but this one just wasn’t that exciting. The flavor is a bit unexciting, I was expecting more of that fresh resin/pine flavor, but it’s pretty dull in this one. Too bad, because I do like the name, and I thought this was going to be really good.
