Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Frost-Mountain-Brew on 10-07-2013

A big, unfiltered American IPA built to accompany the big Eastern Winter. Just like an epic bluebird day follows a snow storm, a peppery build from the Rye-malt accompanies glorious hop notes of pine, citrus and fresh grass.

12oz bottle

Very floral to the nose with a hint of grass and wheat

first taste came in as a wheaty-orange followed with a rye and grapefruit feel. Then a slight pine taste.

Leaves the palette with slight bitterness and an aftertaste. Nothing too overwhelming here.
Great rye IPA here. Not too bitter so a good one for a "non-IPA" fan to try. As a Vermonter, some of OC's stuff has been hit or miss for me; I would call this one a hit. Nice IPA without the overwhelming bitterness.

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.

From a bottle poured into a pint glass

A cloudy Amber with a good head

Aroma is floral and spice

Taste is well balanced with the rye sour and mainly floral and citrus hops, some bitter I the aftertaste

Overall a good rye ale
