look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tulip.

Amber in color. 1 finger of white head.

Pleasant aroma yet somewhat mild. Some hop notes of orange and a touch of grapefruit are noticeable. Just a faint sense of rye spice is noticeable behind it.

A quick flash of citrus hops are first noticed on the palate. Grapefruit and orange again. Malt is dry, crisp, and a bit spicey. Flavor is a bit short and there's mild bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is dry, a bit prickly. Carbonation is appropriate.

Enjoyable beer. I have to admit I wish both the hops and rye were more prominent, especially the rye, but it's a solid effort from Otter Creek. HRd to rate because I'd like to know if the brewer intends for it to be more of an IPA, or more of just a rye beer. It works better as an IPA, less so as a rye focused beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz. bottle, bottled 121613.

A nice hazy pineapple colored body. 2 fingers worth of very creamy foam smothers the sides and drips down. Retention is average though. Smell of spicy rye with grapefruit is nice. Flavor is very mellow, rye and hops are subdued and mild. Finish is relatively tame. Ok but expected more flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tulip.

A - Hazy/cloudy dark golden. Big frothy head with lots of lacing.

S - An excellent, if not strong nose. Very traditional American IPA, great pine, citrus.

T - Somewhat muted initial taste. Great spicy rye/lemon zest finish.

M - Very standard American IPA feel.

O - A solid, if unremarkable, IPA that is slightly elevated by the excellent rye finish, but that falls short of outstanding due to the muted nose and overall average body and flavor. I'd snag it again on tap to see if my bottle was old, as there was no visible date stamp.
