Well, this is my first ever beer from Otter Creek. It was my last choice in my nightly mix a six. Wasnt going to get this beer, but since they decided to follow me on twitter, I felt obligated to review one of there beers, so here it goes.

A: Pours a nice, golden amber color with a 1-inch off white head, has got some good sized bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass and leaves some lacing as the head slowly fades down.

S: Aroma is of some grassy and citrus hops, also get a hint of apple which is something I dont notice too often. Citrus aroma is a mesh between grapefruit and orange.

T: Moderate citrus character up front, with the sweetness of the malts. Can also taste that bit of apple and some pine follows at the end. Has is slightly dry aftertaste, which is something I enjoy in these types of beers.

M: Medium bodied, clean and crisp. Also has some good carbonation which brings out that citrus flavor.

O: A very enjoyable beer for me. I usually judge beers by the cover and reviews, so not knowing about this brewer, I had slightly low expectations. Tastes like an IPA, and a good IPA at that. Would buy a six pack of this and highly recommend trying this underrated beer. I guess you always find hidden gems in New England, cheers!

Orange in colour with faint haze and a thin skim of beige bubbles. A bit of lacing hung on the glass. Aromas of malt, toast, bread, sulfury and floral hops. Medium to low bitterness with grassy and floral hop notes, malty caramel and biscuit sweetness, light alcohol, and a minty finish. Medium bodied with lowish, creamy carbonation. Good overall with an enjoyable hop profile.

Spring Bock pours a nice, clear medium amber color with a 2-finger thick white head. It has medium carbonation, and lacing and retention are both average.

The aroma is really well balanced. Pine notes come up first, with some citrus and orange coming next. It's very well-rounded with a mild malt backbone.

The taste has some sweet malt notes up front with some orange and citrus flavors. This is followed with some pine and grapefruit hop notes and some toasted grains. It finishes dry and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a crisp, clean feel and a dry finish. Carbonation is spot on.

Serving type: on-tap
