Terrapin Hopzilla

I made a trip to Al’s of Hampden to get a glass of Terrapin Hopzilla and to meet up with some friends. Al posted on his Twitter that this beer was “titties,” so I had to see for myself. The beer pours a golden color with a bubbly white head that dissipates rather rapidly. The aroma consists of tangerine, candy, orange, and pine. The taste is sweet at first with toffee, caramel, and orange candies with a balancing bitterness of tangerine and grapefruit. The finish dries a little with pine and spruce. The alcohol content is 10.80% ABV. I really enjoyed the orange candy sweetness to this beer, and it was wonderfully balanced with very bitter and citrusy hops. This beer is definitely recommended by me.
