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.

hazy gold in appearance. couple fingers of soapy head. sticky lacing all the way down. big citrusy rye aroma. this is so incredibly smooth. creamy medium bodied ale. big floral rye spiced taste. cirtrusy hops linger...almost a little piney. this is a solid IPA. love the addition of rye in pale ales.
Update: second thought...raising rating from 4.4 to 4.6

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.

Drinking this right now for the first time on draught at a bar in Baltimore. This is absolutely delicious. As a self-described hop head I'd begun to wonder whether anything under 8% would satisfy my admittedly overwrought taste buds. But at "only" 6.5% this delivers loads of flavor. I'd love to regale you with all the flavor nuances but I'll leave that to the folks who can actually wax poetic about that stuff. All I know is that this is an exceptional IPA that delivers loads of wonderful hop flavor. Love it!
