Terrapin Krunkles Down Under
Terrapin Krunkles Down Under is an American IPA, 6.6% ABV. This is billed as a South Pacific IPA brewed with nine hops from Australia and New Zealand. This was released exclusively (at least for now) in the IPA Survival 12 pack.
This beer does have a wonderful look to it, a lovely medium golden color with some yellowish tones around the edges. Given the huge amount of hops used in this I am a bit stunned by the lack of hop aroma. Very malt forward on the nose, getting mostly a big bready aroma along with some extremely mild notes of citrus and tropical fruits. The taste brings a bit more hop bite and bitterness, nice citrus notes of lemon, grapefruit and orange. The malt profile is strong and bready in the taste as well.
I can’t say I would go out of my way to have this again, but it’s enjoyable enough. No complaints with the whole mixed 12 pack really, it has several of my favorite Terrapin brews in it!
