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.)

A fine example of a Northern California IPA. This is a beautiful beer that should be consumed with passioin and abandon at Mormon/Catholic apostate weddings everywhere.

Hop Ottin terrrific. Lots of hops bring this one in perfect. Nice floral boquet with a bit of citric fruit in the nose and first taste. So pefectly balanced. I am beginning to love this brewer!!!

The color of honey w/ a WOW on the nose. Big citrus rind, almost like inhaling hop dust. Imagine your sinus cavity imploding half way through a vital inhale during a two minute breath holding competition while under duress. Palate is medium to full nectar. Itís a big hoppy style that leaves room for nothingelse. Akin to battery acid. Totally dry w/ a long finish. If you love hops, this is your brew.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 14, 2006
Poured a hazy orange-amber color with a large off white head. Nice hoppy aroma is citrusy mixing grapefruit and oranges. Swet malt underneath of caramel and honey. Flavor starts with sweet malt that quickly moves to piney hops that linger long past the malt ends. Long moderately bitter finish. Nice IPA. I canít believe I never had this one before.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 12, 2006
12oz. bottle. Orange amber with a tall rocky white head. Citrus and piney hop aromatics. Ruddy herbal hop flavor up front, develops citric and metallic notes with underlying slightly sweet maltiness.. Some resin in the finish with more herbal tones. Mouthfeel is light medium, rather dry.

mkgrenwel (577) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2006
Great fluffy head with perfect lacing. Nice sweet malt up front with a hige smack of bitterness in the back. Not a huge amount of hop flavor to go with all that bitterness. Some pine and slight hints of citrus. Silky, slick AV mouthfeel.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2006
Bottle. Skunk bud aroma, real nice, folar, citrusy, pungent, and weedy. A nice amber hue with a low retention beige head produced by aggro pour. Bitterness is upfront, a hinto of greprefruit and honeysweet malt, and it stcks around a bit in the finish. Refreshing and satisfying, 2 dimensional itís all right...

Starting with its piney citrus aroma an aubrun appearance, this ipa is balanced and refreshing.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Copper-colored pour with medium froth head. Nose is floral and hoppy but a little muted. Palate is medium-bodied and assertively hoppy. Flavor is ipa enjoyment with a noticeable grapefruit bitterness that is bold and mouth-coating. Dryness lasts. An above average ipa that makes up for in flavor depth what it lacks in aroma.

nice floral and grass notes with this dark amber pour. malt background was rather one dimensional but overall a little better than average for the style. thanks to Fordest for the bottle.
