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.
12 oz can. Pours an opaque dark golden color. Aroma of fresh cut grass, citrus, hint of spruce. Flavor of citrus, mango, grass. A lot of different hops, a lot of different flavors. Nice combination. Dockurty (18) - Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2017
2017 rating scale. A remarkable release. Hopefully going to find its way to Fort Wayne

Draught. Golden color with small frothy white head, malty aroma with faint citrus, medium carbonation, piney bitter taste with citrus flavor, thin body, long bitter finisg. A classical American IPA. voyageurmike (437) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Bottle at the Parish. The name of this brew is an exaggeration, but it is drinkable. Dark gold, some citrus in the aroma. Medium body, uncomplicated piney taste, mild bitter and malty finish. Larry_Duffman (536) - - APR 28, 2017
I poured it from the can into a glass. It pours hazy amber with a fluffy, white head. The aroma is piny hops and bread. The taste is piny hops, mango, grapefruit, and bread. It’s chewy at first. It fades into a nice carbonation. This is really tasty and enjoyable.

orange gold aroma funky pinapple. some dank. tastes dank generic industrial hops. slight creamy. theprof (956) - 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. JTParis (23) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2017
@Lexington, Kentucky. There was potential to be much more than the brew ended up being. coachd (836) - 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.
