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.)

Rated 12/28/06: Another good offering from Anderson Valley. Nice IPA, very well rounded. Aroma is very floral with a little citrus worked in. Thick copper color, very nice medium sized head. Incredibly smooth, the bitterness from the hops soon fades. Good taste, the hops are immediately upfront then soon mellow out. Could use a touch more malt, but I am still impressed with the nice balance of this IPA. Good choice.

Ruby red grapefruit explodes through the aroma and tasting follows through with the grapefruit character.

DMRz (230) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Powerful aromas of sweet floral and fruity hops and a bit of malt. The flavor is of very fruity bitter hops with a pleasant balance of sweet malt. The finish however is rather bitter. It is good but not great...

Pours amber in color with a nice, lasting head. The hops are clearly there, with plenty of bitterness, but also lovely sweetness. Sweet citrus, pine, and perfume sit atop creamy malt.

A pretty underrated IPA in my opinion - especially considering the price for the sixer. Not bad, not bad at all...a very crisp, thirst quenching, floral IPA - i enjoyed this much more than I thought I would... but it still isn’t a beer to go braggin about

Nice surprise! Definitely a floral aroma. A rather "smooth" bitterness and extremely drinkable. The hops are extraordinary. This is in the class of Two-Hearted Ale - not quite as harsh. A little expensive - but well worth it. I will definitelly buy this again,and again and again. Great Brew.

Bottle - Had this last night for first time in years. Fantastic Rust/Amber color. Wonderful floral, slightly piney nose. The palate expodes with grapefruit. I love it. This is the beer that showed me that I am a hop-head. I thank thee.

mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle at pub. Pours a red amber, wonderful floral aroma of sweet red fruit. Taste starts off sweet with red fruits and toffee, then gets down to an exceptional, but still balanced, bitterness in the finish. Top-notch IPA.

I learned a couple of new words of local lingo reading this bottle. Not sure what they meant though. This was a nice IPA that lived up to its name. Hop Ottin’, means it has bite and it did.
