3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 I love supporting Terrapin and their Hopsecutioner is a great brew but I was pretty disappointed with this offering. However, after getting several friends to try it and ALL of them saying they liked it, I gave it another try. It must have been a bad tasting day the first time as I bought a case this past weekend.

Have had a can numerous times. Light bitterness, a bit more malty then other session IPAs. Decent.

I'm not a huge fan of this beer. I have had it on draught and its better than a can but it is very thin bodied, especially in a can. There are many sessionable beers that don't taste this watery. It also has a floral aroma that I don't prefer mixed with the fact that the beer is watery... It kind of tastes like a weak chamomile tea with some beer flavor hoppiness to it... That's kind of an exaggeration, but this just is not one of my favorite sessionable ales.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Secret Sandwich Society in Fayetteville WVA. Terrapin RecreationAle is a honey golden slightly hazy beer with a nice head of white bubbles. Nose is a slight citrus and mostly grassy hop aroma. Taste is a nice hit of hops followed up by some decent lightly sweet malt. Body is on the thicker side of medium. A nice Sessionable beer, too bad I only had time for one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can @ Motel 6. Has a little bit of haze to it. Nice orange color and a tall white head. Nose is really, really grassy. Also seems perhaps a touch stale in terms of the hop character. A bit of orange peel. At least some tropical, tangy fruit in there. Quite bitter and a little chalky. Kind of watery and very light in body, unfortunately. Eh.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can... took a case of this on a trip to the North Maine Woods, my favorite by a good margin. Nice bright orange color, decent little head. Solid nose of fresh hops/resin slight dankness. Taste is bright citrus notes, light pine, light dank presence. Tons of flavor for such an easy "quaffable" brew. Great beer at a perfect moment in time. Oh yeah.... and I was digging the label.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A piney hop aroma with citrus notes, pours a clear plae gold color with a short lasting head with some pacing. Dry feel lighter body with a taste of resin with a string bitter funish. Not particularly sesionable.
