Terrapin Dr. Krunkles White Farmhouse IPA (Side Project Vol. 20)
Terrapin Dr. Krunkles is a Belgian style IPA. Brewed with coriander, bitter & sweet orange peels and white peppercorn; then aged on white ash. Yup, there is a lot going on in this glass. The first thing that stands out to me is some dry/vanilla notes I will assume is from the white ash. Not that it is overbearing, in fact it starts to blend in a bit more as it warms. Also getting a nice little coconut flavor as it warms as well. I’m not really getting the IPA angle on this one though, a bit hoppy for a Saison but not in an IPA kind of way. It’s a solid Saison base too, nice spices with a mild funkiness and crispness. Side Project Vol. 20 is worth a try for sure.
