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 there’s no chance a liquor store would leave a beer out so long that year becomes relevant, but we’ve 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. They’re being really specific in one sense at the expense of the most important piece of information.
Tap at yard house after the last two beers I ordered were out. Orange pour. Nos eisnorange citrus some pine. Tastes of pine, pineapple, orange citrus, lemon, caramel. Medium bodied and bitters. Listigovers (1383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2018
Slightly cloudy golden beer, rich smell with lots of malt and pine. Taste is a lot of classic foresty flavour hops, reminds me of a classic hop devil or something. thebeerbandit (42) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2017 Had with the Lawrence family for Xmas eve dinner at Longhorn.
Golden orange with a moderate head. Not too hazy. Label is pretty cool!
Smell is not too strong but I’m getting grapefruit and citrus hops.
Taste is well balanced with a big hip presence and enough malt to hold it steady. Bitter, but not overbearing. Tasty but not as assertive as the name would indicate.
Feel is full-bodied and creamy for an IPA which I like.
Overall, it’s a solid IPA. Nothing mind-blowing but it’s well balanced and really tasty. drshuteye (7) - - NOV 26, 2017 does not count
One of my favorite go to beers. The right amount of hoppy and bitter. Easy to drink. Taste is complex enough to keep you interested.

On tap at Warehouse Savannah. Nice opaque golden color. Sudsy. Almost no aroma. Tastes sour, a bit cherry. Hint of hops. Not like any IPA or AIPA I've ever tried, and I don't like cherry. JoeyB. (2) - - SEP 22, 2017 does not count
Loved this one. Excellent taste. Tyler and hoppy. Drank it in Atlanta GA at the Atlanta Fish Market.

Pours a light copper color with a loose white head which lingers......aroma of sweet malt, light earthiness making it through the head.....taste is fair mouthfeel, earthy early, slightly bitter sweet malt with the taste of plant tones, touch of melon. Different.
