COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop-Heads, your dreams have come true! Hop Ottin' is Boontling for "hardworking hops," and they're surely hard at work in this brew. Hop Ottin' starts with a strong floral aroma, which winds into a deep and complex body. In an intriguing balance, honey-drenched malts coat rich hop undertones. At length, the hops prevail, with a satisfyingly crisp finish. Hop Ottin' bites like a cankicky bluetail (Hop Ottin' bites like a rattlesnake looking for a fight.)

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy orange Amber with white head. Good lacing. Aroma is heavy on the malt side. Lots of caramel and biscuits. Some floral notes. Taste is pretty balanced. Earthy and floral hop flavors with a moderate malt sweetness of caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Don't really get any fruity or citrus notes. Above average ipa but not exceptional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jinkeys! One of the best damn IPAs I have had. To kick things off, it looks heavenly; essentially, this what I feel the style SHOULD look like. A very handsome and clean ruddy copper with only the slightest haze. A massive frothing whitecap crowns this gentleman. Herbal, floral and citrus hops, some juniper, light spiciness, honey and caramel treat both nose and tongue to a delightful sensory experience. Bittersweet perfection, neither hop nor malt takes the crown, instead an agreement to rise above the heap takes place resulting in a win for all involved. A mid-soft carbonated body with a light slickness make this a dream IPA for me.

Orange-golden color with nice medium head. Not as fruity as other IPAs, some floral notes and pines. The toasty malt body is very present. Good bitter finish. Not sure if this is exactly my type of IPA, but I like it more and more with every sip.

Hazy copper, soft white head. Citric hops aroma. Tastes quite complex: initial fruity hops, followed by toasted malts and dry strong bitterness. Alcoholic liquor aftetaste. Thin carbonation, low body.

330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours an outstanding orange to amber color forming a medium creamy yellow head. Medium retention and some thin lingering molasses lacings left in the glass S: Lots of caramel. Caramel malts, crystal malts. Brown sugar and flowery hops T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of caramel, caramel malts, crystal malts, brown sugar. Great and balanced hops bitterness. Hops are a must! Excellent quality hops. Mainly herby, flowery and a bi piny profile. I would dare to say itís mainly Centennial M: Medium, creamy and a bit molasses body. Good carbonation. Sweet caramel malts mixed with piny hops in the aftertaste. Great bittersweet balance O: Excellent drinkability. Authentic and delicious American IPA [ BA Review @ 11/9/2013 ]

Can. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a nice layer of off white head. Aroma of hops and some grass. Taste heavy on hops that fades slightly
