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.
Appearance: clear pale gold with one fat finger of rocky white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grapefruit, pine, biscuity pale malt, earth, garlic, hint of coffee. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: light body, moderate carbonation, crisp lightly bitter finish. (3/5)
“RecreationAle,” huh? What d’ya get when you move up to a stronger brew? “ProfessionAle” or MedicinAle”?. This… is odd. It starts off brightly hoppy, with lots of citrus and pine, but that fades rapidly, leaving behind earth, onion and garlic, and most puzzling of all, a hint of coffee. I first rated the aroma as an 8, but by the time I was done, it was a 4 or 5 - so, split the difference and call it a 6. Everything else was more consistent. It’s not bad, it’s just very, very strange how the hop character changes (dissipates, I guess) so rapidly. This continues to be a slightly tricky style to get right. (13/20)

Can from a friend. Pours an orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, some light citrusy hops, and some dryness on the back end. Flavor hits with some caramel in the malt character and nice citrusy hops. Not my favorite, but for a session IPA, it’s definitely up there with what it can do: lots of malt and a nice dose of hops for session IPA. Cavie (4654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2017

Can from West Side. Pours a clear gold with a finger of foam. Lots of juicy citrus with a touch of tropical fruit. Light and crushable. Good bitterness, but not overly so. Best of the KY available terrapins. Noice! drfabulous (7813) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 11, 2017
12 ounce can. Golden orange in color with some nice hoppy notes. Light malt. Citrus. Very crushable. oobawa (1301) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2017
A middle-of-the-road example of a middle-of-the-road style. Starts with a sudden burst of grapefruit and pine, adds a teensy-weensy malt backbone hinting at grain and biscuit, then fades into a fizzy, bitter finish. Not a big fan of the session IPA in the first place, but I guess RecreationAle is a serviceable take on the style. Eh. LilBeerDoctor (3904) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Can. Pours a clear light orange with a thick bubbly white head. Aroma of earthy hops, grassy hops, garlic, bready malt. Flavor of grassy hops, citrus, grapefruit, floral hops, earthy hops. Light, very hoppy, very sessionable. Tasty beer!

12 oz can at the Boathouse at Snowshoe Mountain, WV This was a nice addition to their limited selection of beers. The ale poured a clear gold color with white foamy head. Floral hops and crystal maps greets you. Excellent session ale. The taste of grapefruit rind and pine resin are experienced. The ale has a medium body and average carbonation. Clean finish with some lingering bitterness. Perfect ale for skiing.
