I wasn’t expecting this experience... Poured hazy yellowish with a white head. Little lacing. Huge citrusy sweet almost candied aroma. Could smell this all day. Flavor was lemony honey flavor that was spot on. Alcohol well hidden. Absolutely impressed by Otter Creek.

Thanks to jonny for bringing this back for me. Pours a cloudy light copper with a moderate white top. Aroma is intense citrus hop and cereal malt sweetness. So good

Another winning IPA in one night? Small bottle split with the epic. Aroma of traditional grapefruit rind, pine resin, and sweet nectarine. Pours golden with a nice frothy head. Taste follows the nose with nectarine, orange zest, and bitter grapefruit juice and nice pine resin notes. Great sweet mouthfeel and lingering bitterness. This was stellar. Wish I had a case to share.

12 oz. bottle, 4 pack from The Beer Store. Pours a light orange with a one finger ecru head. Head recedes quickly to a ring and leaves a smattering of lace. A plethora of aroma assaults the nose when sticking said nose into the glass. Grapefruit, pine resin, citrus and barely enough malt to keep it from going overboard. Flavor is quite bitter at first , but there again, there is just enough malt to impart a hint of sweetness. Full, oily, resinous palate with a lingering bitterness on the tongue. I would say this is in the same league as Heady Topper.

Pulpeuse à souhait avec l’éventail des fruits exotiques bien ouvert. Après une longue journée de route, j’aurais pas pu demander un meilleur nectar.

Bottle. Same visuals as their rye IPA, a murky orange-amber, thin but sticky head. Two OCBC beers in a row that have delivered ultra-sexy aromas, full of floral draw. The beer drinks with a definite viscosity, with a bit of alcohol burn working its way thru the big-time citric acidity. Full bodied, well balanced. (#5343, 11/24/2013)

Big, juicy, chewy IPA that will satisfy your hop craving. Ranks right up there with the best of its style.
