Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bomber pours brilliant clear deep copper with loose short lived tan head. The modest aroma puts out nice spicy hops and earthy hops with both faint malts sweetness and sweetened tangelo in the background. The taste has firm fresh hops surging around with a mix of both spicy and earthy hoppiness that seem to have an organic sense to them. Around the edges of those hops are notes of floral hops, some citrus and sweet maltiness. Smooth crisp full bodied brew.

Plovmand (8316) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium off white head. The aroma is loads of peaches, citrus, pine, mango and caramel. Very refreshing. The flavour is peach, mango, citrus and caramel. Light flavour but very refreshing aroma. Nice!

radagast83 (8072) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2010
22oz bottle. Poured a amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma was hoppy, grapefruit, caramel, oranges. Flavor was citrus, good caramel balance - heavy on the hops in the finish. Not bad!

PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2010
DeLand, Fl - Abbey, on tap. Pours a deep dark copper, sticky khaki colored head that leaves nice, thick lacing. Strong, fresh sprucy aroma with some fresh floral notes. The flavor has a nice bitter edge to it with requisite grapefruit bitterness and some nuttiness thrown in for good measure and just a hint of minty goodness. Very fresh. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Another solid entry from Terrapin.

drfabulous (7950) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 24, 2011
22 ounce thanks to Debi. Slightly malty and a bit on the sweet side. Some citrus hops balance it out. Not a big Harvest fresh hop beer, but decent.

3.5
CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Bottle: Pours a clear deep copper amber with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a light piny resiny and citrus hop nose with a touch of light malty sweetness. Starts with a light malty sweetness and some grassy piny hop flavor with a nice bitter balance before a smooth bittersweet finish. Not quite as fresh at this point, but a pretty well-balanced and drinkable IPA.

3.9
egajdzis (6589) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, lightly floral, citrus, and a bit of pine. Taste of citrus, grapefruit, pine, citrus, toffee, with a lightly resin finish.

3.1
blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2011
bottle, clear amber orange colored with soapy looking foam, aroma and flavor are more malt and caramel than anything else with some thin piney notes, disappointing

3.3
ben4321 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 11/7/10

Aroma: The nose is mostly grass and pine, with some vegetation, toast, and a drop of spice
Appearance: It pours a clear, pale orange color with a small, bubbly white head
Flavor: Taste has some bitter hops and resin, some toasty flavors, just misses the mark a bit
Palate: The body is medium, it has moderate (plus) carbonation, and a dry, slightly rough finish
Overall Impression: Unfortunately, this one doesn’t quite hit the mark. I was expecting a little more from this one, as I’m a big fan of fresh hop IPAs and I generally like Terrapin’s stuff as well, but this one just wasn’t that exciting. The flavor is a bit unexciting, I was expecting more of that fresh resin/pine flavor, but it’s pretty dull in this one. Too bad, because I do like the name, and I thought this was going to be really good.

Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2012
Red, with a loose white head. Smells like fresh, grassy hops. Tastes is fresh hops, as well. Not a whole lot of extra dimensions to this, but I really like it. Tap, Flying Saucer, Nashville.
