Let me start by saying I'm a huge fan of Otter Creek, and PA/IPA is my favorite style of beer. Unfortunately, this one just missed the mark for me.

It's tough to put my finger on, but there's a funky-ness to the nose and taste. The hop characteristic is nice, and the mouthfeel is crisp, which matches their description of a session beer. However, I can't get over that funk.

have had a couple bottles in the fridge for a while, so they may not be that good anymore.
poured into snifter

A-hazy yellow, some floaties, mild head, minimal lacing
S-kinda like skunky honey
T-sessionable malt, low alcohol, weak hops,
M-pretty thin, pretty malty, bitter aftertaste
O-just get the Kind Ryed IPA

A: Transparent yellowish pour - with a tiny head. The bubbles, on the head, are large and disappear quickly.

S: I am getting some kind of fruit - but not anything tropical like I'd expect. It is more of a kiwi smell (fruit not the flightless bird). I also smell maple syrup.

T: Slightly fruity with a mildly bitter finish.

M: appropriate for this style. Good carbonation and body.

O: This is very middle of the road. Nothing noteworthy to make it stand out. Not one to seek out - but not bad.

A - Yellow, not clear, hazy. Big white head...
S - Musty, metallic. I don't get a lot of hop aroma :(
T - Slight bitterness that is nice, there is a nutty, almost peanut taste on my palate
M - Carbonation is higher than I like. The bubbles overpower much of the potential taste.

O - I wanted to like this more than I do, I'm a big supporter of Vermont!
