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.

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.
