The only mistake I made was taking this to a tailgate party where the drink of the hour was Pittsburgh's own Iron City... I won't trash IC Light, our hometown beer, but I do concede that this beer is not cut-out for the fair-weather fans of craft.
Thinking that I could appeal to the Blue Moon/Shock Top drinking crowd, I purchased a case and took a twelve-pack to the Bucco game. It was immediately met with suspicion and derision... Not a fan favorite.

However, if you know anything about beer, you will respect the allure of a White IPA. The tantalizing taste of hops and the velvety mouthfeel of a summertime wheat beer is enough to tip the scales. However, this beer neither tips one way or the other--had I wanted to drink an IPA (or American IPA) the hops would be left to desire. But notably, the texture is not what one would expect from a premium wheat ale.

Nonetheless, this is a great beer for crafty people drinking beer at a tailgate party on a sweltering day... And if your friends have a problem with that, offer them an I.C. Light :-)

Another beer courtesy of the legendary woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1 inch head. Some floaties are present. Smell is of lemons, hops. Taste is mild hops, a very light bitterness, malts are present, zing of lemons and oranges as well. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall makes for a refreshing warm weather beer.

Drank from a 12 fl. oz. bottle
04/01/14
Served in a tulip

Except for the large yeast particles floating throughout the liquid, the appearance was flawless. The cloudy, straw yellow body was topped by a billowing, fluffy, four-finger tall, bright white mass. A latticework of Brussels lacing coated the glass as the crown receded, lasting until the end of the session.

The aroma was spectacular. Uber spicy and intense, but remarkably smooth. Clove and coriander were the dominant spices. Fruity and quite sweet with lots of punchy citrus notes. Orange peel was rather prominent. Clean, bright and wheaty. Grassy hops were noticeable in the background. There was a powdery, dry and slightly phenolic Belgian yeastiness as well.

While the nose was much more like a witbier than an IPA, the opposite was true of the flavor profile. Earthy, bitter hop notes hit hard right off the bat. Dry and tart with lots of crisp wheatiness and citrus. Bitter grapefruit rind was most apparent. Moderate amount of pine and orange peel. Touch of lemon. Somewhat spicy. Clove was noticeable. There was a slightly herbal quality as well. The finish was hoppy, dry and super bitter, but the bitterness receded as the beer warmed.

Fairly ordinary mouthfeel. The liquid was medium bodied for the style contained a very fine, mellow effervescence. Slick, smooth and slightly creamy. This could have definitely benefitted from a bit more zippiness.

Otter Creek have really stepped up their game lately. This excellent summer quencher is both refreshing and complex.
