4.05/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow straw color. About a fingers worth of white head, long lasting. Lots of carbonation is visible. Aroma is great, hoppy, citrus and earth right off the bat. Taste is earthy bitter right away, fading to a citrus flavor with a slight caramel malt sweetness in the finish. Finishes nice and crisp, very well balanced. On a second taste I notice a slight hint of sulfur in the nose. Medium high carbonation, medium low body.

This is Terrapin's take on a sessionable pale ale, and I'd say they succeeded. Light enough to enjoy several, yet still hoppy enough to provide the expected pleasure from a pale ale. Very well balanced, I expected a session ale to lean more towards the hops, however this one is a very balanced pale ale. Less sweet than their rye pale ale. I will definitely be having more of these whenever I can find them. Excellent beer.
