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.

On tap at Pazzos. Aroma of citrus and piny hops with some caramel malt underneath. Not nearly as hop heavy as I expected.

RabbleRouseRye (13) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Not as 100% hop forward as I expected. Hop flavor is somewhat basic and straight forward. Piney, bitter with some caramel and malty flavors coming through. No dank earthy hops present. Okay beer but falls short of its Hopsecutioner moniker. .

Brandon1989 (527) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a small off white head. The aroma is hoppy with lots of citrus juice. I pick up the pine, pineapple, very floral hops. The taste is quite bitter as to be expected. There is some citrusy hop bite with a breadiness on the finish.

Bufordbrewer (39) - Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Clear golden amber from a can. Tannish head with some lacing. I dont get the citrus/floral others report. I get hop forward bitter pine, the hops are strong but rounded, not a sharp stab but a big thud. It is a hop experience, but a bouquet it is not.

john44 (1419) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle. Orangey Gold in colour. Good lacing. Very Fruity; orange citrus, pineapple. Very Hoppy; piney resinous and floral hops; not aggressive. Malty; toasty malts, caramel. Good fruit/hop/malt balance. Mildly sweetish fruity hoppy throughout. Perhaps the hops had mellowed out - beyond Best Before date. Very drinkable. Decent. (2014-12-04)

355 ml can at home thanks to Glen! Clear golden orange color with white to off white head. Hoppy and malty aroma, pine, citrusy fruity, caramel, bread. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

On tap. Just what you would expect from the name, a big old hop slap, nothing too crazy.

BucannonXC5 (1520) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Type: 12-oz. draft Glass: Clear goblet From: Vortex Midtown in Atlanta, Ga. Price: $6 Purchased: Dec. 7, 2016 Consumed: Dec. 7, 2016 Reviewed as: American IPA Misc.: N/A First time trying Terrapin as well. I believe they recently became #CraftAdjace as well, but I wont hold that against them here. The name of this one sounds cool. Hope it tastes as good. Poured a deep gold clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white frothy head when I got it. It was dark at Vortex, but there appeared to be a lot of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.00) Smelled Cascade, soapy pine, floral, Irish Spring soap, light tangerine, Citra and caramel. (Smell - 3.50) Tasted Cascade, soapy pine, Irish Spring, floral, potpourri, caramel, lots of hops that really dont work well together, passion fruit, mango and tropical notes. (Taste - 3.25) Light body, Oily texture, Average carbonation. Dry, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.75) This was an OK beer overall. Nothing special though. (Overall - 3.50) 3.46 79 B-
