4.23/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a very hazy, dark golden orange color with a two finger, pillowy white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Excellent retention, taking a while to settle and leaving sporadic soapy lacing on the way down.

Slightly earthy floral hop aroma that's bursting with juicy citrus and tropical fruit notes. Some resinous oil, fresh cut grassy and sticky pine needle but the sweeter fruit notes really stand out. Prominent grapefruit and citrus rind along with some mango, papaya, pineapple and blood orange. The hop presence is balanced by a faint pale malt presence with hints of bread, faint caramel and grainy graham cracker. Smells very good but could use a stronger earthy/resinous character.

Medium body with dry, earthy bitterness lingering over sweet citrus/tropical fruit notes and a faint pale malt backbone into a sweet, slightly dry finish. Some grassy pine needle, spruce tip and sticky resinous oils countered by prominent fruit sweetness and pale biscuit malt. The juicy tropical and citrus fruit notes really stand out with hints of juicy grapefruit, mango, pineapple, curaçao and blood orange. The sweet clementine, naval orange and tangerine notes are strongest providing the hop profile with delicious flavor. Perfectly balanced by a pale malt backbone with hints of biscuit, cracker, a touch of spicy rye and subtle caramel sweetness. This beer could use a little more earthy bitterness but is otherwise an excellently balanced, flavorful beer that is dangerously drinkable.

4.06/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear, light amber color with a bubbly, white froth of a head. The head settles to a nice thin layer of bubbles and some decent lacing on the glass.
S: Floral, spicy, piney hops with a mellow malt profile of fresh bread and more rye spice.
T: Soft doughy malt notes with a crisp, dry bite of floral, spicy and pine hop notes. More dry grains and a finish of bitter and spicy rye notes.
M: Medium body with moderate carbonation and a noticeable breath of alcohol.
O: Otter creek is on the mark with this beer it has a great flavor and balance with a good hit of spiciness. Taste is clean and fresh. I would certainly try this again.
