After tasting the collaboration beer – Double Dose IPA – I have been on the look out for more from Otter Creek. I missed this one in the stores but fortunately my mother-in-law found a six pack at a local store and purchased it. She bought it because she liked the label with the dog and the guy in the car not knowing that it was something I was looking for. Anyway I ended with a couple of bottles when we went up to her house to do some wood and roof her porch. She also brought over another six pack she found on another shopping trip so I drank this beer for an entire week, which is very unusual for me.
Kind Ryed is a rye IPA which is a style that I am really enjoying, unlike the black IPA. Color is a deep orange with a thin white head that left tons of lacing on the glass. Aroma has a significant amount of citrus, tangerine – similar to Double Dose but dialed back a notch or two but with an added sweetness from the rye. Taste is very similar to the nose with a solid amount of tangerine from the hops but plenty of rye as well. Overall this was a very enjoyable beer and one of my favorite rye IPAs.
Hoping this one becomes a regular in the Otter Creek line.
