Was hoping to try this one. Didn't see it anywhere, and then, all of a sudden, there it was in Bottle King. Poured it into my Baxter can glass. Looks like your usual IPA. Smells great. Hoppy citrus wafting out of the glass. This one is a citrus hop bomb. Overpowering, in a great way. The bitter citrus tastes lingers. The palate digs it. Overall, a fantastic beer. The best I've ever had by Otter Creek. I really hope they make this one every year.

From 11/18/13 notes. Had 2 - 8oz. pours of this on tap at Pony Bar on the UES.

a - Pours a hazy, bright orange-yellow color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, oranges, fruity malts, pine hops, floral hops, bread, wheat, and very light tropical fruits in the end. Lots of citrus, quite nice.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, oranges, fruity malts, tropical fruits, floral hops, fruity malts, and light resin. Little bit hoppier than the nose and more tropical fruits, a slight step up for me here.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is pretty smooth and creamy with no bitterness to it. Nice mouthfeel.

o - Overall I thought this was a very good and very drinkable DIPA; no bitterness and didn't feel 8.5% ABV at all. Lots of citrus throughout it with awesome tropical fruits in the taste as well. Well worth checking out, hope they make it again.
