22 oz. bottle. A clear amber/copper pour with a smallish antique white head. A semi-harsh aroma of grapefruits, pine, a little caramel, and some hints of bubblegum & band-aids in the background. Medium-bodied, though flavors throughout seem a little subdued and watery. A decent amount of maltiness keeps things pretty well-balanced taste-wise all the way through. Caramel is present upfront. Some grapefruitiness brings up the rear. A little bite at the end with a surprising amount of warming alcohol considering the ABV. Could be better.

Bottle via trade from backlog notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, toasted malts, grass, green hops, citrus, light resin, slight vegetal notes.

Opaque orange copper hued body with a cream head. Caramel, lightly floral, toffee &malt nose and flavors with Hops have mellowed over time.

I love the fresh hop flavor and aroma. The texture is a little light though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

JLLSU (242) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2012
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 (19175) - 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.
