This is a very good beer. Not the biggest fan of Otter Creek in general, but the Black IPA, which drinks more like a black ale - not as hoppy as typical IPAs - was very good.

Poured from bottle into snifter, pours a dark brown color with almost no head, good lacing 5 minutes after the pour. Smell is typical of a black IPA, though less inviting than most I've had. Smells of the dark malts used and of hops (thats all I got anyways). Taste is of pine and smokiness, again typical of a black IPA. Mouthfeel is light and watery, Carbonation is just right (a hint more could even be taken). Overall, nothing great, but with a limited craft beer selection at the local gas station it'll do.
