Terrapin Beer Luau Krunkles
What the brewers say
Flavors of passion fruit, orange, and guava make this IPA an instant vacation.
What our panel thought
Strong fruit (mostly orange) aromas up front. The passion fruit and guava come out nicely in the body, with a decent backing bitterness to keep it from being one-dimensional alcopop fruit juice. Finish is relatively crisp. The fruit additions are really well balanced without being over the top or adding weird harsh edges.
What our editors thought
Pineapple and passion fruit dominate the intensely fruity nose with tropical flair. The sip is a touch more beer-ish, with a mild pithy bitterness offering the lightest of structures to the fruit-forward flavor.
