Terrapin Hopsecutioner IPA

Type: IPA
Origin: Athens, GA
Price: $4/16 oz pint
ABV: 7.2%

Second beer of the NC trip. Look at the picture. Looks like a watered-down DIet Coke, right? Or carbonated iced tea? Unfortunately, that's more or less what's going on here. It actually smells a bit like Diet Coke too (sweet with a vaguely chemically aspect), and it tastes a bit like carbonated iced tea. If they made a beer-flavored soft drink, this is probably what it would taste like. I probably should've just had some sweet tea instead. After the fact I had a hard time convincing myself that something didn't go wrong with the keg or the pour, or maybe our waitress played a trick on me. If this is what the product is actually supposed to be like, then maybe they should go back to the ol' drawing board. I'll go for innocent until proven guilty, though, and try this again the next time I'm down that way. It can't really be this bad, can it?

  1. terrapin is very wishy washy. Sometimes fantastic, sometimes tastes like crackhead taint.
