My favorite SF&SGG that I’ve had so far. Very dominant obvious citra hops on the nose. Nice tropical papaya notes. Not sure on the bottling date but hops have definitely faded on the taste. Not a malt bomb by any means, but you definitely get dominant pale malt tastes. Delicious still, & easy drinking. Solid this year for sure.
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz can. Sparkling light amber pour with a nice glow, silky, snow white head that leaves just a hint of lacing. Aroma is delectable with a perfect blend of spruce notes and mango and citrus. Scrumptious flavor with nice citrus bent to it, plenty of caramel sweetness, some mango fruitiness. Thick, rich mouthfeel. . Foxbush (2112) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2017
12 oz can from Growlers to Go, Short Pump, VA The IPA poured a clear amber color with a frothy head and limited lacing. There is good head retention. The aroma of citrus and tropical fruits greets you. Also some pale malts round out the experience. The taste is nicely done with hop citrus and more tropical fruit. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. Some hints of spruce after some swallows. The IPA was well constructed. We do not see enough Terrrapin products in Virginia,. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of citrus, fruit, grass, and the best tropics. Flavors of tropical fruits and hops. slowrunner77 (12801) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"The amarillo description is for the batch that was made when this beer was entered. The recipe stays the same but the hop used changes every year. Much to my liking, this year’s (2012) was citra. Freshest beer I’ve ever had from GA (buddy grabbed it still in the box a week ago). Really nice aroma a blast of citrus, orange and tropical fruit galore, Flavor much the same...understated, but full and lively, slightly dank. Mellow ipa, but I really dug the freshness and aproach to this brew. "

November 2012. Bottle. Cloudy copper color with an offwhite head. Nice aromas of grapefruit, pine and flowers. Very clean and crisp with plenty of hops on the finish. Outstanding IPA.

22 oz. bottle, sent from mwgroove23 (thanks Mike), pours a hazy dark-ish orange with a small beige head. Aroma of tropical fruits, especially mangos, butterscotch, and some caramel malt. Flavour tastes very fresh, with notes of mangos, citrusy hops and some butterscotch. Given that it was likely bottled in October or November 2012, it has held up alright, but not optimal. Good stuff.

Bottle from Bruisn Ales. Pours orange with a thin white head. Big grapefruit aroma on the nose. Goes down pretty smooth. Tastes a bit leafy on the tongue. Finishes clean and tight. Solid! leah2974 (429) - Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Really incredible IPA. The name does not lie. One of the freshest beers I’ve ever tasted. Big, clean dry-hopped flavor. Ed5388 (3488) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2013
22oz bomber. Pours a hazy copper color with a one finger of head. Aroma of fresh citrus and floral hops, grass, pine, and peaches. Taste is citrus, pine, lightly earthy notes, tropical fruits, and moderate caramel sweetness. jzzbassman (1638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottled. Ah yes, what is it about fresh Citra that just slays me so? Pours amber with a solid head. Fresh dank earth littered with apricots fill the aroma. Yes, a bit sweet for me for an IPA, but so darn drinkable and finishes with both grapefruit and chewing on a fresh pine needle bitterness.
