Poured from a bomber into a satan glass (wide flute). Beautiful amber color, semi-transparent and a thick white head.
Wow. It smells like a handful of green hops. Exactly what I was expecting for a wet hop ale. Citrus and a little malt scent getting in there too.
I was expecting more bitterness... but this is still great. Subtly bitter with the malty sweet coming through more. Though not really sweet, just more than bitter.
Soft and medium body. Light carbonation. Very nice.
Very drinkable. The mouthfeel is wonderful. A great looking beer with a nice smell to it. The taste was the only part not bring it strong, but it was still very nice.
Opaque orange copper hued body with a cream head. Caramel, lightly floral, toffee &malt nose and flavors with Hops have mellowed over time. SmokeyHamlin (4) - - MAY 26, 2013 does not count
I love the fresh hop flavor and aroma. The texture is a little light though.

From notes: I’m not a huge fan of Amarillo hops, but this one isn’t that bad. The aroma is incredibly floral and wonderful, but it seems that the beer loses of flavor and is pretty watery and lacks depth. bretupdegraff (242) - Fishers, Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Amarillo? Yes please. This might be my favorite hop! Pours a dark copper with an off-white head. Rich hoppy aroma. Palate is perfect - this is a great tasting brew

Draught. Poured a nice amber color with a moderate white head on it. Really nice hoppy aroma on it with some floral notes to it. A little bitter, like a good IPA should be, but finished very clean. I liked this brew.

Bomber---> tulip. Pours a light amber with a small thick white head and good lacing. Aroma is fresh pine sap and light apricot. Taste is a muted version of the aroma with a good malt backbone that isn’t too sweet like some IPAs. I’ve had a couple wet hopped beers this year and they have all been too lightly carbonated, this one gets it right. One of the better wet hopped ales I’ve tried, but nothing superb.

Growler from Crafty Draught. Pours a translucent amber with a nice white foamy head. Nice lacing. Aroma of fresh grass and earthy hops. Some citrus on the nose. Like taking a bite out of a fresh nug. Delicious. Nice sweet malt backbone. Fresh grass and floral hops dominate. Another awesome brew from Terrapin. Never disappointed. mcberko (17339) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
22 oz. bottle, courtesy of and split with Glouglouburp (thanks Dany). Pours a mostly clear coppery orange with a huge white foamy head. Aroma is quite dusty and earth, with sweaty clothes, floral and earthy hops, apple cider and dust – doesn’t smell so fresh, really. Flavour is very doughy, fresh dough to be exact, light floral hops and a bit of subtle apple cider. Tastes more like a semi-fresh doughy pale ale – not very hoppy at all, but easy drinking dough bomb. Solid, but flawed. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!
This beer appears a dark orange color. The head is about a half inch thick and generates a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is a balance of malt and hops, with some sweet scents and a hint of alcohol. So far, it lacks the characteristics typical of the style. The taste is a bit of disappointment as well, and lacks any type of bold hop character. The beer does not taste bad, per se, but I wouldn’t even know this was an IPA if it wasn’t on the label. There are many better beers out there, IPA or not. I wouldn’t recommend this.
