Had this on 2015-01-23 in Columbia, PA from a 12 oz bottle.

A - Cloudy golden orange with a massive 3-finger pillowy white head that lasts and lasts and leaves nice, sheeted lace.

S - Dank and floral hops, rye bread, citrus and a touch of pine. Very nice.

T - Tart orange marmalade on toasted rye bread gives way quickly to quite-bitter grapefruit zest, which lingers a long time. There's also some grass and earthy spice that appears towards the end and continues into the aftertaste.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Prickly, a bit resinous but ultimately, quite dry.

O - Plenty here for hop/bitter lovers with a nice rye twist. Not as balanced as I'd like (too bitter) but all-in-all; a well-made and tasty brew.

Pours straw-golden color, with a frothy eggshell white head. Not much lacing on the glass.

It smells unbelievable. Floral. Super floral. Imagine walking through a field of wild flowers floral. Sweet, delicious wildflowers.

Not really bitter at all. Just a little bit on the aftertaste. Not really sweet either. Whats that mean? Well it means to me that its perfectly balanced and this is a delicious beer that everyone needs to try.

The mouth feel is ehhhh medium. Not thick, not light. The right feel to be able to pound down 6 of these guys and not feel like you ate at a Chinese buffet.

This beer is surprising. I didn't care for OC's Overgrown. This beer however definitely deserves the outstanding rating it's receiving. Its an excellent IPA to give to a buddy if you want them to get into craft and IPAs.

Another winner from brewmaster Mike. A golden honey pour with some noticeable suspended particles, and a thin bubbly head. A fresh hoppy scent leads to a mouthful of fruit, pineapple, and berry. I think there's a hint of clove in there too. The malts balance out a long bitter finish, yum. Well done, I'll have another.

Overall a good rye ale

Thanks to joe_grizzly, who sent this along with a buttload of Alchemist that I promptly devoured. Have always liked Otter Creek , & haven’t had their rye…shame on me. 12 oz. bottle.

The pour is unfiltered orange, middling carbonation. Nose is like a lotion Kleenex, gentle, unabrasive, to be used repeatedly.

Kind Ryed is like a rye five toes in the nuts. Luckily, I like that kind of thing. To say this is rye-forward is like saying Coke if sugar-forward. The rye is spicy & sharp, almost veering into white pepper territory, crushing the hops into a background watercolor of mild bitterness & a damp earthiness. While I usually hate dirt in my beer, the contrast with the rye works. Chewed pine needles finish it off, & damn, but I shouldn’t have shared this with my wife. The entire bottle would have been welcome from lips to liver.

Very good stuff & if I had a bucket full, this might get ass-bumped into the excellent sphere. Another fine brew from Otter Creek.
