Bottle pour at powder keg beer and chili festival. Aroma is hay, grass, herbs, pine/spruce. Appearance is cloudy yellow pour with finger width white head and nice lacing, no sparkle. Taste is mild corn chip with strong hop character--pleasantly bitter. Palate is light bodied with slick/slippery/silky texture (nice), average carbonation with long, wet, bitter finish felt at the back teeth. Overall, pretty much what you’d expect with strong hops but good variety to aroma.

Bière orange dégustée en fût au Vermont. La bière dans le verre est très attirante: le liquide est moyennement voilé et du fond de mon verre émanent de superbes bulles qui remontent à vive allure vers la surface obstruée de cette mousse blanche, généreuse et éternelle. De magnifiques lacings décoraient mon verre à telle enseigne que François Moisan qui devait prendre le volant peu après, convoitait terriblement mon verre... Arômes de pin, de résine, de conifères, de feuilles de fougère et de mousse après la pluie. L’alcool est présent mais sa présence ne m’incommode pas. Le liquide accuse une certaine rondeur en bouche; rondeur que j’avais anticipée en faisant tournoyer le liquide dans le verre. Celui-ci était annonciateur d’une belle (trop belle?) densité. Collante au fond de la gorge, cette bière se déguste joliment bien!

Une IPA orange avec mousse un peu beige et accrocheuse. Au nez, tropiques et effets boréals. Invitant! Au goût, des aiguilles de conifères, des herbes, des fleurs, du gazon, du gingembre, des épices, des agrumes et quelques autres fruits qui poussent dans des pays lointains et/ou qui poussent à proximité et qui peuvent avoir un noyau en plein cœur. Une base maltée assez solide, mielleuse et caramélisée, biscuité et toasté. En bouche, une sensation agréable avec un corps crémeux et modérément touché par les bulles. Une finale tranchante d’amertume sur les herbes et les pamplemousses.

The aroma is dank, pine, earth, citrus. The flavor is earth, pine, citrus, flowers, caramel. Hop forward, and a mixed blast of hops. The appearance is hazy amber, white head. The finish is pine, floral. Thick in body. Nicely done.

On tap at Ballpark Brew Bash in Buffalo, NY. Wasn’t sure what to expect as I’ve been let down by Otter Creek beers in the past, but this was very solid. Bright clean heavy citrus IPA. Just a great hop punch all throughout. You can tell it’s a little bigger than your average IPA but I never would’ve guessed it’s 8.5% ABV, it hides it well.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a ruddy burnt orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Lacing was fairly clingy with ringy foaminess gracing the sides of the tulip. The smell started off with dried pine, dried mango, bitter orange rind, light honey, and a sticky sweet papaya to balance. The taste had a pure bittersweet bliss running into the previously mentioned flavors and slapping around the hops creating the flavor on into the aftertaste in a fairly sticky sweet to bitter fashion. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice semi-sticky bittersweet hoppiness clinging nicely to my tongue. Overall, this was a really nice DIPA that I would definitely have again.

Awesome. Gold our, white head. Dank and grassy. Hoppy but not overly bitter. Mango, lychee, caramel malt, light sweetness. Abv is hidden remarkably well.
