COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We Consider this an extreme version of an American Pale Ale. It has a very up front floral and citrus aroma from a late cascade addition and dry hopping with Amarillo. This beer also has a big malt background to balance the bitterness of the hops. The rye malt cleans up your palette after you swallow so the hop flavor does not stick in your mouth too long.

I live in Athens where this is brewed, and $2 pints of are everywhere. I have to say, it is soo much better than in the bottle. Overall, pretty good!

Pours a cloudy light amber color. Aroma has hops and citrus with a slight tart. Lots of hops at first but the rye develops aferwards with slightly bitter and earthy flavors. Enjoyable beer - would like to try it on draft.

Bottle in GA. Poured a copper color with a moderate white head that diminished quickly. Good hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body with a thin texture. Well balanced hoppy malty citrus flavor with a dry smooth finish. First beer from this brewer. I will try to find more.

London Gathering Nov 05: Nice hoppy pine and citrus notes. Suprisingly complex malt character, nice caramel and bready notes. Tasty enough.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2010 draught. This is a copper brew with a fizzy white head. Its got a good lemon zest aroma, though it could stand to be more assertive. The flavor is of more citrusy hops, not bracingly bitter, but deep. The caramel sweetness is a bit thin and the rye is evident throughout the drinking experience. This is pretty interesting take on the style.

So good to see Terrapin make its way into our market. As the warm weather has rolled in, rye pale ale and Sweetwater IPA are exactly what the doctor ordered. The aroma is hoppy without being really strong but certainly has ample juicy citrus with a dash of more bitter grapefruit notes. Rye is apparent and meshes with the hops quite well. Though a light bodied pale ale, this still packs respectable complexity mostly due to the layers of rye and malt working with the zesty hops. Interesting notes of herbs pop up in the more typical flavors Id associate with the style. Ill be drinking plenty of this stuff this summer.

Bottle from kp Thanks!

Pours a lovely amber with ample head and clinging lace. Aroma is grapefruit and boiled rice. Flavor is sweet citrus with sour outlines of grapefruit. A nice bitterness is evident in the finish. Palate is coating. A quality beer.

Aquired in a trade from quiver. Pours a slight hazed orange. Aroama was hop/citrus. Flavor was citrusy with a balanced malt hop feel to it. Nice mild oily mouthfeel.

12 oz. bottle Pours a thin white head that disipates quickly, leaving only a thin white rim around the edge of the glass. An up-front smell of hops is supported by a backbone of citrus notes, an aroma that always makes me eager to dive in. The scent holds true, as the taste packs a bold hoppy punch. A balance of malt is present, but be ready for the hops to win out. There are some noticeable citrus flavors as well. A very drinkable mouthfeel, but not noteworhty. Finishes with a welcome bite to the back of the tounge and leaves a great hoppy flavor in your mouth throughout the beer. I must say that I am biased towards Terrapin, and my review follows accordingly; the Rye Pale Ale is my sentimental favorite. A Great brewery, and this beer is one that I can drink all night enjoyably. I cant wait to go back to Georgia for more.

This is a fantastic beer. The unique rye element of the ale gives it a refreshing quality unfound in many of its peers. In particular, the aftertaste is one of a kind - the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness.
