Beer Review, Terrapin India Brown Ale

Terrapin India Brown Ale (bottle)
Athens, GA
6.2% ABV

Appearance: Dark brown hazy body, thin brown head that dissipates quickly. Translucent. 4.0/5

Smell: Surprisingly hoppy, a nice crisp bitterness over a nutty malt backbone. Dark and roasty. Very interesting. 4.5/5

Taste: A nice balance of malt and hops. Sweet nutty flavors with a delicate hop bite to finish it off. 4.0/5

Mouthfeel: Moderate thickness, high hops, and a nice carbonation. 4.0/5

Drinkability: Quite drinkable. If this India Brown Ale concept takes off, I will for one be a very happy man. 4.0/5

Overall: 4.1/5
