Otter Creek dropping more hoppy brews in this new series, always worth a shot since the first ones have been good.
A- Split from the 12oz bottle into two glasses with a fairly hazy pale yellow body. Cap builds to a finger or two with good retention. Small creamy ring leaves mostly spotty lace with some pillows as well.
S- Dank, pungent hops dominate the aroma but don't have the bite of an IPA, smooth and inviting. Strong notes of tropical fruits like mango and tangerine with hints of citrus juice, lime and floral.
T- Pretty much a carbon copy of the nose with a few minor changes. The aforementioned juicy tropical nectar hops lend some pine and and more citrus rind feel here. Massive dank and fruity hop flavors without much bitterness or palate destruction. Tiniest bit of light cracked malts and yeast.
MF- Light body with a crisp and silky texture, slight creaminess. Carbonation at a medium high level. Slightly bitter finish.
Citra flavor comes in waves without fatiguing the palate and satisfying my hop desires. I hope Otter Creek keeps this series going perhaps with different hops being emphasized.

Reviewed from notes. Shared by Andrew - thanks.
A: Pours a hazed pale yellow under a 1/2-inch thick white head which fades to the rim and leaves spotty lace.
N: Fruity and floral, tropicals (passion fruit) is noted.
T: Citrusy and yeasty, well balanced, clean.
M: Light body and medium carbonation. Finishes dry and citrusy.
O: Refreshingly nice and easy drinking. Well done.
