Day 276 Drink: Terrapin Rye Pale Ale
Terrapin Beer Co. was born in Athens, Ga., in 2002. The company launched with a single beer, Terrapin Rye Pale Ale, that it started brewing on a contract basis. Just six months later the beer ended up taking the gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival.
Terrapin Rye Pale Ale pours a golden color with a rocky white head. The aroma has a nice floral and citrus note. The flavor has some good hop spice and a nice amount of malt overall. Well designed and layered flavor.
