12oz bottle pours a hazy, straw yellow with lots of frothy white head. Nose is awesome, bright lemon peel lemon juice, very grassy, straw, some lime, lots of dank hop pellet. Flavor is strong too, more orange than lemon this time around, grassy, lime, zesty, chive, mild sweetness. Crisp, grassy finish. Really drinkable. Wow, really nice.

johnnnniee (2179) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle from Bert’s Pours a slightly hazy medium straw color with a huge tightly bubbled bone white head that persists forever being constantly fed buy a stream of carb bubbles. Aromas of floral, pine, grass, citrus, and a hint of sulfur atop a light bready pilsner malt base. The flavor is very light crackery malt with a fair amount of spicy earthy citrusy hops. Hop bitterness is quite present as there is little in the way of malt body to counter it. Light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Smells pretty damn good, tastes ok but really needs a hint more body for my tastes.

Pours a soft and pale straw blonde with two fingers of crackling white head. Nose shows an intense hop profile dominated by citrus and ’dank’ notes with a grassy background. A light malt sweetness balances things out. Very dry and grassy flavor with a touch more bitterness than I’d like. A green astringency develops and lasts a bit more than I’d like.

RichieBoy (22) - Getzville, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Aroma is citrus (grapefruit) hops and pine. Appearance: Yellow, cloudy color with a small, sudsy white head that laced nicely all around the glass. Taste is acidic with grapefruit hops up front and piney on the end. Light to medium bodied that was more oily than watery. Overall its one of my new favorites!

FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2014
If you drank the piss straight from the cat it would taste and smell just like this. +++ Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a vibrant yellow-golden color with a small foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was very strong cat piss, pine and more cat piss. The flavor was very strong cat piss, pine, pepper and more cat piss. Long cat piss finish. medium body. Amazingly foul!

Nice hints of citrus, though not tart or sweet. Punchy, some yeast and a balanced hops-centric finish. Refreshing and very drinkable.

mkgrenwel (564) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Pale yellow straw color. Big rocky white head. Large bubbles. Straight citra aroma of pineapple and tropical fruit. Touches of dry biscuity malt. Flavor is a total citra bomb. Grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, hay. Malt is dry and just a bit toasty. It's not so much the beer, it's the citra hops, THEY'RE good. Even so, Otter Creek has done a nice job highlighting them. Bitterness is actually slightly strong for the style. It could be dialed back, but it does make it damn refreshing. Awesome beer.

keanex (1388) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottled February 3, 2014.
Appearance: The body is a beautifully vibrant golden-orange hue with a cloudiness, almost resembling orange juice! The white head is tall, dense, and pillowy looked. I would take a nap on it if I could! The retention is excellent as well.
Aroma: Big citra hop profile, semi-mango semi-orange juice, lots of characteristics here. Slight whiff of sulfur and a mild grassy aroma as well. The malts are slightly present, but this mostly shows off the hops.
Taste: Like the aroma this is almost fully citra hops in the flavor. I get light malt sweetness, but overlying that is a big bitter orange and hints of mango. The bitterness is on par with a pale ale, but this drinks a bit cleaner.
Palate: Crisp and sharply carbonated.
Overall: What a remarkably well done IPL, one of the best I’ve had actually. This is an easy drinking beer with a huge hop profile that I’d love to have during a warm day. It’s a shame it won’t be around much longer. I’ll be buying this next year for sure.
