Cartoon mutant turtles are hard to take seriously yet they somehow command an irresistible appeal to my generation (see Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot).
There’s no denying that Terrapin’s turtle-themed beers are eye catching, specially when you up the ante and turn the turtle into a hop-draped Godzilla-like monster terrorizing old ladies through downtown… Atlanta, I assume, since Terrapin is from Georgia.
And that’s how, like most bottles of wine I buy, I picked Terrapin’s Hopzilla based on the label. Not to mention this bouble IPA phase I seem to be going through.
