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.)

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2006
had this on tap, poured a copperish amber color with a modest off-white head, aroma of citrus, apricots, and hops, the taste was hoppy, sweet, a little citrusy with a slight bitterness perfectly blended, nice full bodied brew, good IPA.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Poured an effervescent amber with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine hops with some sweetness. Taste is somewhat milder and less complex than the aroma, with grapefruit and pine hops dominating with some light sweetness. Long bitter finish. Pretty good.

paulmetzger (154) - Pocatello, Idaho, USA - JAN 9, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Pours clear golden amber with average carbonation. Floral, somewhat sweet aroma. Not as bitter as I like in an IPA, but VERY well balances with the sweetness of the malt. Crisp fading to silky mouthfeel. Bonus points for the cool copy on the bottle (down the side of the front panel, "Brewed from only the finest hops, malted barley, hops, yeast, hops, and pristine Boonville mineral water. And hops." -- Awesome!) Was a bit more expensive, but well worth it. Would TOTALLY buy again.

blankboy (6030) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly golden-orange with a large creamy white head. Big aroma of fresh juicy citrus hops and just enough sweet malt. Great flavour, very grapefruity -- the hops are subtle at first but really come out in the bitter aftertaste. Also, there’s enough malt and some honey there to balance the flavour out. Creamy mouthfeel and full bodied. Fantastic, one of the best IPAs out there.

Gachupines (885) - USA - DEC 29, 2005
Amber with tan head. Aroma is strong floral. Taste is strong hops and citrus with a sweet malt backbone and dry finish. Hop bitterness in the aftertaste as well. Rather nice IPA.

chilehead (186) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Pours warm copper with a foamy white head. Head does not persist very long. Nose is quite citrus-hoppy with a touch of cotton candy. Mouthfeel is a soft and rich medium body with a dry slightly tannic finish. Pink grapefruit persists on the tongue for a long and gradual finish.

GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Pours with a medium off-white head on a cloudy, deep amber body. Nice lacing pattern and the head cracks. Mild hop aroma with lots of malt. Hoppy bitter with a nice citrus and malt aftertaste.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - DEC 15, 2005
Tap @ Cafe Trieste. Pours a rusty orange with no head. Smells hoppy and a little citrusy. Tastes the same. Not a complex hop flavor, but tasty. It doesn’t have the depth of flavor or the pine/citrus flavors of IPAs like Stone.
