Terrapin Brewing – Hop Karma Brown IPA
I generally follow the edict that beer should not be snobby. Drink it out of the bottle, hell bust out a solo cup if you must, but Terrapin’s Hop Karma Brown IPA is meant to breathe. It isn’t often you come across a Brown IPA. Generally the nutty malty flavors are a bit hard to manage with the bitter hoppy flavors, but Terrapin Brewing’s Hop Karma Brown IPA balances those tastes perfectly.
When allowed to breathe this light bodied slightly bittered beer takes on vanilla caramel flavors. This one is best enjoyed at a slightly less chilled temperature when it can develop it’s full profile. Terrapin Brewing has established themselves as one of the top breweries to emerge from the south. Their ability to nail the core styles while also experimenting with unique flavors, are the perfect balance of what to look for in a brewery. If you ever find yourself in Georgia, don’t miss the opportunity to give Terrapin Brewing a go.
