12 oz can. Pours hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is medium and tangy. Herbal, citrusy hops dominate the palate with bready malt and tropical fruit provide support. Finish is long and dry. Great brew.

L: Hazy and almost opaque gold with a creamy white head. Good retention, and lots of lacing.

S: Bright and juicy yellow grapefruit, orange zest, peach and pineapple, some pine and a light hint of dankness.

T: Lots of white grapefruit juice upfront. Carries some sourness like actual grapefruit. Some orange peel bitterness, soft and creamy white bread malt, and some nice peach, pineapple, and honeydew melon. Moderately bitter with sticky resins and a lingering citrus pith flavor, and a touch of pine sap.

F: Medium, well-carbonated, oily and somewhat creamy; smooth. Very lightly dry.

O: A really nice, flavorful lower abv IPA. A great drink for the average hophead.

after a very lackluster beer experience, we pulled over to a shop on the side of the road on the way home to grab a single beer, a better beer, a palate cleanser that was much needed after a trip to a new and not so good brewery in upstate new york. we were stoked to find this ipa, and while it didnt taste perfectly fresh to me, it was leagues better than where we had come from, and it really hit the spot for us! nothing radical about it, i can pick falconers flight hops out of any beer, and they are familiarly bitter and vegetal in this one, but softened some in both nose and taste by the inclusion of the citra and galaxy, which seem to be outmatched just a little bit, but they take some of the bite out of it. grapefruit and peach notes in here, a little sweetness to the fuller grain body, and high carbonation which keeps this drinkable and even refreshing, even when it warms up some. i would have liked to catch it at its peak freshness, but it tastes really good still, galaxy and high alpha bitterness in the finish with the starchy oats. i have always liked the hoppy stuff from otter creek, and this is another good one. easy down and flavorful!

Back in Laurel.
Pours a hazy pale straw yellow with a thin all white head that leaves decent side glass lace.
AROMA: Sharp pungent hops of citrus and pine.
TASTE: More of the same along with some sour tartness and just enough bread malts to give some decent balance.
A solid IPA. Not my personal number one style but no doubt hop lovers will like this one alot.

Just picked this one up not knowing a thing about the brewery, or the beer. It was a pleasant surprise when I found out that I really like this one. The highlights of this one are a great hop character with a pretty nice body as per the cloudy unfilteredness of the beer(maybe wheat malts?). Not sure how it gets the taste, but big bold flavors of pine, grapefruit, citrus notes and grain. It goes good with spicey food as the hops mingles well with the spices in food.

Look: cloudy, golden, white foamy head w/lots of lacing.
Smell: hops, citrus, lovely
Taste: grapefruit, pine, citrus
Feel: somewhat of a body, but goes down smooth and refreshing, sessionable
Overall: I was crazing some good hops when I bought this and it doesn't disappoint. It is not weak in any way, but very easy drinking, nice one!

12 oz can....12/22/17

Hazed up , NEIPA kinda pour, leaves nice looking fine lacing.

Mild resiny pineapple infused nose.

Smooth, lighter, easy drinking and better the respectable take on the style...worthy every day kinda sessionable brew. One of the best offerings I've had from Otter Creek BC

Pours hazy yellow with foamy white head that persists. Aroma is prominent and citrusy, hoppy pine note as well. Taste is fruity and slightly bitter. Feels a little gritty and finishes surprisingly crisp. The aftertaste left returns from time to time, kinda neat. This is a really solid IPA, I'd buy it again.
