3.9/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Purchased in Woonsocket, RI.

A- Pours a hazy dull gold color with a 2 finger head that reduces slowly to a layer of white foam.. leaves spotty lacing.

S- Grassy, floral, somewhat citrusy and soapy, some bread and malt.

T- Somewhat soapy, citrus, floral, sweet malt and biscuits on the finish.

M- Medium body and carbonation

Decent brew.. could put down a few but nothing to seek out considering all the citra hop beers on the market these days.

12oz bottle with a Botlled On Date of 010614. Pours a translucent golden color with almost no head. Some lacing. Aromas of citrus hops, bread, and grass. The taste is citrus hops upfront followed by some pine and floral notes. Bready malts with some orange peel towards the end. Pine and bitter orange peel finish. The bitterness increases with each sip. Light and crisp. I hate the label, but love the beer. Between this, Double Dose and Kind Ryed Otter Creek has really been putting out some really good hoppy offerings lately. Overall, drinkable and bitter, this is a good beer to have on hand often.

Bottled just under two weeks ago and poured into a pilsner style glass...

A - Light yellow color with a nice full one finger head that widdles down but still leaves a nice topper throughout. Great lace throughout consumption. Awesome looker

S - Grass, bread, crackers, pine, sunflowers

T - Mostly the same as the nose but the added bonus of citrus and hints of grapefruit. Pretty bitter yet nice and smooth at the end, good balance

M - High carbonation, light body, a little bite on the end of the palate

O - A high quality brew from Otter Creek. Walks the tight rope of a session pale lager and one to sit back and enjoy. Very balanced with good grassy pine characteristics and citrusy fruit. Well done!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a large snifter.
Pours a very light color with frothy bubbles.
Smells are very nice, very good Citra character, some zesty citrus.
Taste is right in line with aromas, though the taste fades a bit as my palate adjusts.
Mouthfeel is just right.
Overall, a very nice easy drinking hoppy beer. Enjoyed it!
