CharmCityCrab (244) - Maryland, USA - APR 10, 2013
I?ve been saying for years that Terrapin ought to expand their distribution area into Maryland, and here they are. The nickname of the University of Maryland football and men?s basketball teams (and all their other sports for that matter) is the Terrapins, which makes this a natural for tailgating, watching games on television in home or bar settings, and to plain old show some Maryland pride (With a beer from Georgia... Don?t think about it too closely, especially when we?re playing Georgia Tech ;) ).Anyhow, the name, label, and logos are strong, and the beer itself is a very reasonable bitter IPA with a malt taste that is stronger than in some IPAs but not to where the hops don?t take control and I?m forced to use the word all hopheads dread- "balanced". ;) Okay, I just used the word, but its in quotes so it doesn?t count. ;) Nothing spectacular, but a decent example of the style. Aroma is a little mild, which puts it just a hair beneath a Torpedo or something like that. EDIT: I appreciate that they took the opportunity to include not only the month, but week its freshest by on the label, but its not that useful without the YEAR. Is like to say theres no chance a liquor store would leave a beer out so long that year becomes relevant, but weve all seen it happen. If its a question of label space, just give us a month and a year rather than a month and a week. Theyre being really specific in one sense at the expense of the most important piece of information.

theprof (833) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2017
Tap. Aroma pale malts and hop fruits. Pours bright amber, slightly hazy with broken white lacing from a thin top. Taste is predominantly hoppy. My guess would be the Centennial outshines the others. Medium carbonation. The sweet start folds into a lasting bitter finish. A beer to have before that last cigar, the blindfold, and the order Fire.

@Lexington, Kentucky. There was potential to be much more than the brew ended up being.

coachd (747) - Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2017
Sweet malty aroma with fresh piney hops backing it up. Dark golden color with a huge tuft of white foam. Very hoppy flavor, the variety of hops makes it a bit muddled; I would have liked one or a few of the hop varieties given a chance to shine. Some of the malt sweetness comes through in the aftertaste. Still good, just a little too busy. Great palate. It coats the mouth with just a hint of carbonation. This was good not great.

Just seemed to have to many hop flavors going on once. Drinkable but not my favorite.

ajnepple (6160) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Draft at the Ole Saint Kitchen & Tap. Golden to orange appearance and slightly hazy with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma of spruce, flowers, citrus zest, light hop resin and a touch of grains. Similar flavor, adding moderate hop bitterness and a clean, smooth finish. Solid IPA overall.

Hopmaestro (1568) - rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2017
Aroma is hoppy with citrus and grapefruit sting. Taste is pretty smooth but still a medium malty taste with a little stale hops. Probably a little old, but more than decent.

oobawa (1100) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Pretty basic old-school Southern IPA, malt-forward and mildly bitter, more concerned with packing a boozy punch than torching your tongue with IBUs. Aroma is surprisingly nondescript for such a big-name hop profile, and this lackluster hoppiness translates rather directly into the taste. Large amounts of biscuit malts give the brew the malty heft of an amber ale, with an underlying sweetness only cut by the hops towards the back end. Finishes piney with a modest floral flourish, and the bitterness fades away rather quickly. Drinkable, but not much of an IPA, to be honest.

ARH (1124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Bright citrus and tropical fruit aromas with undertones of honey and a floral hint. Clear orange gold with a dense foamy, fuzzy head that lingers with. Its a wonderful balance of hoppy floral and honey-ish malt. Its smooth and easy with a citrus aftertaste
