Terrapin Capt’n Krunkles Black IPA

22 oz from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA. Gold foil on the neck as the remainder of the Side Project series, but reflects Depth Charge rather than the 1-9 side project label.
Pour is great looking, Inky black with a resplendent head that is thick and big with great retention and lace. The look is by far the best part of this beer – by a mile!
Nose is a hop based one but is light and reminds me of an anesthetic – think a visit to the dentist.
The tastes are nasty bitterness upon nasty bitterness. Not subtle and not roasted, rather it tastes like a piece of licorice that was constructed by a 10th graders chemistry set. Bitterness lingers and leaves a dry unhappiness in the mouth. Mouthfeel seems light and weak.
Medicinal hops complete the package and the beer seems like a herbal mix of homebrew and vitamins.
It’s a poor beer IMO.
