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.)

Remarkable?! Not at first, but I was quickly changed in mind. Decent balance but not plesant at first. big floral hop aroma. Yellow with slight ruby hue. Collared rings with lacing that stuck. Medium mouthfeel. Slick/resinous palate. Soft conditioning but has a bite afterwards. Thin head diminishing to a sheen. honey yellow head. Drinkability only ok at first. nuttyness undertone. Alcohol barely detectable. Addictive when it comes to the hoppiness. Tried 1-2; the last 3 were awesome, maybe the weakness of it is what makes it so drinkable?

RSRIZZO (1958) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Had on 3/27/2001. Aroma is a light hop scent. Color is a nice golden with good carbonation and head. Taste mellow and hoppy. Starting with a light medium body it goes down with sharp feel. Finish is a light hop flavor and light malt flavor backed by a strong bitterness. I do not feel it is as well balanced as a Pale Ale should be.

9/12/07 From the bottle. Aroma is grassy, earthy American hops forward balanced with some light sweet malt. Appearance is light hazy orange-gold with a moderate off-white head. Flavor is grassy, earthy hops forward, well balanced, with a moderate malt background without too much character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carb feel. Overall, great balance in flavor but lacking a little in the aroma balance.

Stine (1761) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Bright and luminous bronze-orange pour. Fairly insubtantial initial aroma of soap and cotton candy. Toffee and raspberries with a pleasant malty tone after a while. Tastes crisp and quite astringent for the most part. Soap with a floral disposition dominates. Heavy tangerine syrup simmering underneath. Finishes with a vegetal steam of yerba mate, with that dirty hay and raw thyme bitterness. Spritzy palate, with a kind of sugary bite on the slick soap. Mild urinal cake on the distant smack. A bit hard to put back, though nothing’s really wrong here. Boring.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle. Honey color. Sweet, floral aroma with some hops as well (not as hoppy as I would have expected it to be). Quite bitter for me, almost a shock to the mouth. However, it is a crisp bitterness. No long aftertaste. Wish there was more flavor to it. Overall, a fun and perky beer that I would try again.

On tap at Map Room, Chicago. A Very nice IPA. Maybe closer to Alpha King than Two Heated Ale? Didn’t mind the bittering hops-- not too overwhelming.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Rich honey pour with a light head. Smell was very big soapy hops. Taste was equally well hopped, with only a very light sweetness to it. Medium bitterness to it that lingers a while. A quality, definitely far hoppier than average IPA. A lot of beers mellow out or change a bit as it warms, but to me this one was just as bitter and big on hops from the 1st to the last sip. This was good, but 12oz of this is about my limit.

Deep rich amber color with a huge IPA aroma coming from the bottle this was a NW nectar of the hop gods. This had flavor, character and great tastes. Hard to put this down cold and crisp this was a true fun drinking, tasty brew.

Boutip (5940) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2007
Bottle courtesy of SS: Poured a deep copper ale with a nice big foamy head with good retention. Aroma of bitter hops is well balance with some light caramel malt. Taste is a mix between caramel malt and some bitter hops. Body is above average with some good carbonation. I have to admit that this was a well made and very refreshing IPA but still taste quite similar to other staple of the style.
