Drank from a 12 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Sav-Mor Liquors, Medford, MA
112113
Served in a pint glass

The hazy, orangey-amber beer was topped by a creamy, frothy, light tan, two-plus finger tall crown that slowly faded to a lasting, foamy cap. A sheet of patchy lacing coated the entire glass and lasted long after the beer was finished.

The aroma was exceptional. Super hoppy, fruity and bright with amazingly fragrant peach, nectarine and dried apricot notes. Lots of generic tropical fruitiness, which reminded me of Juicy Fruit gum. Somewhat dank and weed-like. All in all, amazingly smooth.

Like the nose, the flavor profile was fantastically hoppy and fruity. Peach and apricot notes dominated. Orange and tangerine flavors came through strong. Hints of tropical fruit notes were also apparent. The hops were balanced by a crystal malt backbone that was just stiff enough to keep the hops in check. A touch of pineyness and some grapefruit notes appeared on the semi-bitter finish. Hints of mango were noticeable as the beer warmed.

For a 6.5% ABV beer I was surprised by how light this felt on the palate. The liquid was frothy and fluffy and contained a lively, large bubbled effervescence. As the beer sat, the carbonation settled down a bit and the beer turned somewhat smoother and creamier.

Otter Creek/Wolaver's collaboration beer Double Dose was intensely hoppy and quite enjoyable but, in my opinion, this offering was light years better. Kind Ryed IPA is incredibly tasty, remarkably well balanced and dangerously quaffable. I would love to see this became available year-round.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip. Pours a bright orange, with a 1 inch fluffy white head that coats the sides lace. Smell I'd tropical, tangerine, papaya, rye(I have finally drank enough to know the smell, a slight breadyness, grapefruit, and pine. The taste starts very tropical, a little breadyness/toffee, and papaya and grapefruit finish. Body is medium large, nice carbonation, not really dry, and very drinkable. This is really well done, I feel they learned a lot from brewing with Lawson's and am excited about Otter Creek again.
