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.)

12oz bottle poured a clear orange color with a huge rocky off white head. Aroma had large amounts of citrus hops along with some sweet caramel. The taste had a big piney bitterness with a huge amount of hop flavor alongside a dry finish. Overall this IPA has a more powerful hop punch than most others.

Best hop flavor of any beer I have tried. Fruity hops, bitter, light color, great finish, very enjoyable. My favorite for about 6 months.

Draft at the Parkway’s Day of IPAs. Pours dark straw with a small white head. Medium carbonation. Light malt backbone to the flavor profile, body’s on the light side of medium. Huge crisp finish with a sneaky lingering bitter aftertaste. Great beer.

Tap. Hazy amber w ow head that fell away to a thin film rather quickly, min lace. Aroma of fresh resinous hops & medium roasted malt. Flavor is somewhat sour, medium roasted caramel malt with moderate hop flavor and full hop bitterness esp on the finish. Unbalanced to the bittering hops IMO. It is well into medium bodied however and is an OK selection.

12 oz Bottle Pours out a almost a copper orange with a off white head. The Aroma is GREAT. I was thinking a GREAT hop bit when I took a drink it was not as powerfull as I had hoped. Over all a good IPA

it’s good...but the flavor is very elusive, it just doesn’t seem to sit on the palate long enough before it’s overpowered by the bitterness.

OhioGuzzler (40) - Maineville, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2006
Nice aroma, nice orange color. There’s a good hop bite to this with a small hint of citrus and a good dose of floral. Clean finish. Not a bad IPA

adrian910ss (2406) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Pours a caramel coppery orange color with a medium sized white lacing of a head. Aroma is of slightly piney hops with hints of spring flowers and tangerine citrus. Taste is pleasantly hoppy with a slight piney overtone and citrus. Very good IPA.

brstp (201) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 8, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 Bottle. Dark orange color, large lasting khaki head, complex aroma of pine, grass, orange, raspberry maybe? Extremely bitter, some citrus hops shine through and slight malts, clean, crisp, almost astringent finish. A little more intense than most of its west coast brothers and sisters.
