This beer is perfect for recreation. The first can usually bites and hits you pretty hard. But it seems like each can afterwards becomes easier to drink. By the time you know it, you can be putting down 4 or 5 and you hardly notice outside of being pretty buzzed.

The beer has a very distinct flavor but over time that distinction is what drives you to keep drinking. It lives up to its name for sure. I highly recommend it.

a - poured a three-fingers thick bubbly, light tan head into a willi becher tumbler that left thick sheeting and great lacing throughout. the body was a bubbly amber. as good looking a pale ale as i've ever seen.
s - floral hops with some grassy aromas as well.
t - grassy and bready with some toffee notes. a slight fruitiness comes through as well.
m - slick at first but becomes more prickly.
o - one of terrapin's best offerings and i've had a lot. damn good beer and i love it in a can.

I am rating this as a sessionable APA, as that is what it is crafted to be. First cans from Terrapin!

A: Pours a light hazy golden, with a two-finger bleach white head with nice retention. Decent lacing, and some noticeable carbonation.

S: Grassy floral hops, damp hay, and a dash of onion, atop a pale malt backbone.

T: A citric tartness leads the bill, followed by a sprinkling of those grassy hops, a dash of piney bitterness, and a refreshing mingling of floral hops and pale malt on the finish.

M: Light, yet creamy, and very refreshing.

This is extremely sessionable, as advertised, and was a perfect companion for an all day music festival in the Atlanta heat in June. Tasty while also being wonderfully drinkable and refreshing. Love that I have a new session option from none other than the best brewery in Georgia.
