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.)

Was not too fond of this IPA. 22oz. bottle, pours a clear toasted golden color with a small off-white head that ends up lacing the surface. Slight floral aroma with notes of sap, orange and hay, but it didnt blow me away. Flavor is dominated by grassy grapefruit flavors that fade into caramel and a decent hops finish. I felt this beer was missing something. I would like to have a bigger and fresher hops aroma along with a palate that lasts. This was somewhat one dimensional, and flavor fades quickly.

wow. that is a really nice IPA. i love the pine needle taste and the citrus character. seems close to perfect as i have ever tasted. the carbonation is highly moderate and the mouthfeel is moderate. this brings out a refreshing characteristic that is expert balance. no hint of alcohol. lightly malted which we hop heads don’t mind that much. mild woody feel and taste.

Svesse (7849) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2007
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 15 June 2007) Dark amber colour with brief beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with orange, grapefruit, pine needles. Lots of hops, but still balanced. Fruity, hoppy taste with grapefruit, orange peel, pine needles and loads of hops. Rather one dimensional, but great hop character and nicely balanced. Great!

JLAudio (282) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2007 Pours a nice golden color with a nice head and lacing. Nice sized head. Full of aromas...usual grapefruit and pine, with a bright floral note. Taste is good, kind of unusually balanced, with a unique malt character and nice explosive hops. This IPA would have been better with a few more bittering hops and a less complicated balance. Very Good

Sampled with Stegosaurus on tap at Issac Newtons. Clear amber pour with mild hoppy aroma. Mild hop taste blended with citrus. This was actually blended pretty good. Not a great IPA but not bad either.

I was a little disappointed with this one. Poured out very nice, but the aroma wasnt as hoppy as I expected this to be. The flavor wasnt either. Maybe I had a shitty bottle, but i was less than impressed. I followed this beer up with a Two Hearted to end my IPA disappointment. That is what an IPA should taste like.

The beer pours into a nice head. First taste was a nice IPA with a ton of hops. The taste moves on to the floral hops is a bit overwhelming by the end of the glass.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2007 Pours a nice amber color with a cream head. A hoppy smell, but a little lighter from the other IPA’s of late.

Pours a dark amber color with only the slightest of head forming. Smell is hoppy. Some grassy, some piney, some funky. Taste is crisp and refreshing. A good IPA.
