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.

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 (4714) - 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!!!

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!

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.

nick76 (4213) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2010
The aroma is very hoppy and simple but very good. It’s got grass and a touch of citrus and pine but nothing else besides malt. The appearance is light amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma and wonderfully understated its just what I want with an IPA. The palate is thin and the only real weak point. Overall a great beer!

22oz bottle. Copper color. Aroma of pine resin, citrus zest. Nice caramel and biscuit. Bread and hop bitterness finish. Very simple, full flavor.

Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting (thanks to Beerlando for sending a bottle our way)... Poured golden/orange with a white head. Grassy, pine, sweet with honey and malts. Ginger, earthy leafiness like salad.
