Maybe my expectations were just a little too high. After all, Terrapin knows plenty about making a great IPA, so a Fresh Hop Terrapin IPA should be fantastic. This one was good, but not a good as I expected it to be. Nose is mostly pine and resin but seems way too faint for the style. Taste is similar - slightly bitter, pine, resin, citrus, but lots of caramel malts come through also. It’s good, but just seems too balanced and weaker than I expected.

On tap at Mac’s Speed Shop. Typical IPA type scents in here, and some decent carbonation. Head was just about completely white. Taste was very smooth, but not as much hop character that I would have hoped. Not much aftertaste. A nice IPA but not very complex and missing some of the "fresh" element they were going for.

Bottle. Pours reddish amber. Nose/taste of sweet malt, resin, dark caramel malt, pine and fresh grass. Slightly dry finish. Medium body.

tia (2221) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Tap. Golden with foamy white head. Light toast aroma plus fresh pear. Light flavor- not too sweet, not too dry. Funny grainy end.

3.8
Gachupines (1252) - USA - NOV 8, 2011
Amber appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is fresh hops, somewhat piney. Flavor is very hoppy, a little resinous. Could have a little more malt to balance it out, finish is a bit thin. Overall, solid beer, especially with some spicy food. Would pick it out again.

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Has almost no nose but what develops is a refershing, moderately hoopy beer. Tastes extremely fresh and clean and leaves the palate quicly, which I like in an IPA. It’s not a dominator like most terrapin beers, but it is satisfying and pretty tasty. A good strong nose on this one would make it a true winner.

3.5
AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Strong aroma of pine/fir, sort of like being in an evergreen forest. The strong malt flavor with caramel base were predominate over a distinctly high hop presence. Very nicely blended.

3.5
jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2011
From the tap poured a brown color with a good amount of head. Bitter hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

3.3
tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Draft. Pour is hazy amber/brown with a decent biege head, some lacing. Aroma is fresh hops: citrus/floral notes, with caramel and biscuit malt. Taste is very malt forward, biscuity, with citrus hops, and a weird vegetal/earthy note. light-medium body, average carbonation, oily texture, bitter finish.

3.5
jw0406 (1275) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2011
12 oz draft pours and orange/amber color with a nice white head. Aromas of oily hops, grapefruit and resin. Oily mouthfeel with a nice bitter finish
