(Terrapin Beer Company)

Terrapin's first canned offering, RecreationAle, is a sessional American Pale Ale that makes for a great beer anytime of year. When introduced to the market back in May, this was a brand new beer for the brewery

From the Terrapin Brewing site:

“Wrap your hand around a can of our RecreationAle and explore what outside life has to offer.  This hopped up session ale is specially formulated to accompany you on all of your outdoor activities.  Pack in this flavorful ale and pack out the memories while enjoying this quaffable brew.”

Here we go...

Pour - dark golden to amber in appearance with an off-white head on top. Clean pour, looking forward to this one. 

Aroma - Floral, citrus, and grassy hops. Plenty to entice one to stick their face in their glass.

Taste - Lovely hop presence with notes of citrus and pine. Flavors are nicely balanced with plenty of character despite the low ABV. Refreshing, crisp and hoppy. 

Overall - Hoppy and drinkable.  A perfect session pale ale for a day on the water or in the woods. RecreationAle is a great way for Terrapin to introduce cans to their lineup. Easy drinking and sure to please most palates. 

Note -  The word Terrapin is an Algonquian word for turtle. The brewery is actually named after the Grateful Dead album Terrapin Station.
