Quercus Vitis Humulus

Otter Creek Quercus Vitis HumulusI finally got to try the new beer from Otter Creek – Quercus Vitis Humuls (Oak Grape Hop) – on tap at Sunset Grill. Unfortunately I ordered a big DIPA right before so I can’t write up an accurate review. I will say that it was extremely complex and definitely worth trying. On first sip I got big notes of oak and hops. Further into the glass, it was mostly grape & hop flavors. Barleywine might not be the best category to put this beer into, but what else could you call it?

When I can get my hands on a bottle I’ll post a real review.
