This is money. Can’t decide which is better... This or the founders. Very similar. Aroma of pine, citrus, and grassy goodness. Taste the same. The body doesn’t give out in this one as much.

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.

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.

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.

12 ounce can. Bright yellow gold color.,foamy white head. Fragrant tropical fruit hop aroma. Some caramel malts as well. Complex bready malt palate with subtle citrus hops to boot. Very quaffable and full of flavor.

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.

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.
