Terrapin SP#13 “So Fresh & So Green Green”

Here’s your Terrapin Side Project status update.  Recent releases – #10 – Cap’t Krunkles Black IPA.  #11 -Boom Shakalager Bavarian Imperial Pilsner. Release #12 is about to arrive – Hopzilla Imperial IPA.  September brings another hoppy offering from the Athens, GA brewer.  Side Project #13 is dubbed “So Fresh & So Green Green.”  For some that title may sound familiar.  Think about.  Think… Outkast.  It’s a play on the lyric – “So fresh and so clean, clean” from the Atlanta based duo’s 2001 album “Stankonia.”

So Fresh & So Green Green is a wet hopped ale.  Wet hopping is the act of taking whole leave, fresh picked hops right off the vine and adding them to the brew.  It’s similar to Sweetwater’s Wet Dream.  Wet hops impart a very unique flavor profile to beer.  Not all the details have been released by Terrapin yet. The label tells us this –

“Terrapin’s “So Fresh and so Green, Green” is a beer that celebrates the hop! Made with freshly picked, whole leaf “wet” hops, these off-the-vine beauties will encourage you to drink fresh, drink local and drink now. 6.6% ABV.”

Style: American IPA

Arrival: SP #13 debuts at Terrapin’s Hop Harvest on September 25th, 2010 from 4:30 – 7:30 pm
