Terrapin RecreationAleFrom Terrapin Beer Co. – 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 will enjoying this quaffable brew.

Terrapin Beer Co. – Terrapin RecreationAle – 12 oz. can poured into a pint glass. 4.7% abv.

Appearance:  Pours a mostly clear amber gold with a foamy white head that subsides down to a 1/4 inch film.

Aroma:  Nice fruity nose. Candied orange, grapefruit essence, brown sugar.

Taste: Clean citrusy hops. Mild pine bitterness. Lightly toasted malt with subtle sweetness. Hoppy but not bitter. Must be something like citra.

Mouthfeel:  Medium bodied. Average carbonation.

Overall:  The perfect combo for me: hoppy and drinkable.  This isn’t in the same vein as Drake’s Alpha Session or some of the other highly hopped “Session IPAs”, but equally good. The can is always a nice touch, especially with a delicate beer like this.
