The Terrapin Hop Karma Brown IPA is a head on collision between a hoppy west coast India Pale Ale and a malty, complex brown ale. Brewed with 5 varieties of hops and 7 different malts, this hybrid style represents the best of both worlds. PEACE, LOVE and HOPPINESS

PhillyCraft (6778) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Tap at capones, pours brown with medium off white head along with impressive lacing. Aromas and flavor of nutty malt, milk cocoa, pine, toffee, and light rust. I remember this being better a couple years ago, fresher and hoppier when that batch hit. Lighter body. Pretty solid.

jhp40219 (449) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 11, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a large tan head that retains pretty well and leaves a lot of lacing. Clear with some nice amber hues. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts, caramel, chocolate, hints of coffee and vanilla. Taste is bready malts, mild citrusy hops, chocolate hints. Dry with a slight bitterness. Long finish of malts and caramel with hop resin. Medium bodied, creamy and oily texture, average carbonation. Excellent beer! Very well done Black IPA.

BrewMoose (83) - Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours with a small tan head. Roast and chocolate aromas. Very little hop aroma. Chocolate roasty and some hop bitterness in the flavor. Not much hop aroma and flavor for an IPA. definitely not a black IPA much more of an American Brown Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

merc7186 (3054) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2013
This beer pours really well, has a great deep reddish brown color with a nice thick creamy off white head and great lacing, well carbontated too. The smell is amazing with a great blend of several malts and hops blended well and a mild nutty smell lingering. The taste is good with a great blend of several malts and a decent hoppiness,citrus flaovr that follows but is not overpowering. The mouthfell is mellow with a mild citrusy flavor and a malty carmel taste lingering. Overall, a great beer that I am upset that they dont distribute in my area. A great blend of two different styles that blended well together. My second beer from this brewer and they both were amazing, highly recommend.

Pours an opaque brown with a slight tan head. Leaves a decent amount of lacing down the glass. Smells of mostly chocolate malt. Taste is pretty similar. Lots of chocolate notes with some hop presence although not quite as much as expected from the name. Additional chocolate bitterness is also detectable. Taste every slightly favors malt but is not overly sweet. Mouthfeel is good and creamy with a good level of carbonation. Pretty decent beer. Better than the Big Hoppy Monster. Delivers a good hop presence while still staying true to the flavor profile of a brown.

MrBunn (2773) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours a leathery brown with quite a bit of light poking through and a quickly-dying head. Initial impression of the aromas is that it has a heavy smell of dates and figs with little hops presence, but flavor starts there and transitions to a sort of non-defined hop bitterness with some of that brown sugar-like edge poking through. The beer is interesting, but solid.

The hoppiness of an IPA with the sweet balance of a brown. This beer is full bodied and dark, lots of flavor, but smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

musinj6 (506) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pours a clear brown with one finger head and light lacing. Herbal, piney hop aroma with toast malt and some caramel. Mildly sweet up front and turns moderately bitter with a long bitter finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Clean on the palate. This is drinkable. Not bad at all.
