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.)

Clear copper color with a nice head. Big hop aroma. Malt flavor comes through at first then gives in to the hops. Medium body. Decent beer.

Folkstar (6) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - APR 21, 2006 does not count
As far as taste goes it reminds me of a decent Barley Wine. Aftertaste is nice and bitter and the ingredients don’t make a subtle presence. Definitely brings Anderson Valley to a new level!

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2006
Golden color. Nice head. Smell of flowers, citrus and hops. First sip was very bitter, nice hops with a rusty after taste. Ok for a IPA.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2006
Thanks to another great guy on this site: Odeed aka Jacob.Pours a copper color with a thin line of foam around the rim. Nose is way more hoppy than you might expect from a IPA, more like an IIPA. Bitter on the tongue right away... no mistaking this for anything else but an IPA. Very refreshing. Thanks Odeed.

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2006
Hoppy, but sweet aroma; great balance. Very nice dark amber with sllight haze. Steady, pervasive carbonation. Off white/yellowish head. Great body color. Rich hop flavor; piney. Very well balanced. Excellent. I might confuse this with the big boy IPAs if tasting it blind.

alobar (2885) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2006
Amber color with a beige head. Aroma of hops and some malts. Taste was bitter with a dry fruity aftertaste. Bitterness did hang around for a while. A strong IPA.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2006
Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Medium amber color with offwhite head. Soapy, citrusy, and piney hops in the nose. Well balanced flavors of light-medium malt, pungent citrusy hops, and bitter hops. Slightly bitter/sticky finish. Nothing all that outstanding, but a solid drinkin’ IPA. Surprised at the 7%-- it’s well-hidden.

hayduke (3474) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 6, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2009 22 oz Bottle. Copper colored with a huge tan head the lasted forever. Aroma is mostly hops with a tinge of fruit and flowers. Decent palate, and good flavor. Nice to the last drop. Overall this is a winner for an IPA.
