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.)

Brownish tan, mild floral aroma. Big head fades slowly. Moderate bitterness, medium mouthfeel. Easy drinking but underwhelming.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Bottle. Poured a reddish-orange relatively clear hue with a slight white head with little lacing. Definitely some spice and honey in the background. Rather easy to drink. As far as IPAs go this one probably ranks in the middle for my taste.

AlabastorJones (812) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2006
pretty standard IPA, nothing really jumps out as being extraordinary or even interesting, its good but lacks any sort of character or anything to make it stand out against the rest of its indian brethren. drank this one while some sketchy freaky guy pretended to puke habenero peppers and freaked out the woman who was working next door alone, she gave me a stone bomber in return for staying there while the creep show did his creepy show

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2006 12 oz bottle via Liquid Solutions. Pours a clear copper with a large head. Nose has lots of pine and grapefruit. Taste is the same as the aroma, with a crisp dry finish. Bittersweet resiny aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel. Full bodied. This is quite tastey and very drinkable if you like tons of resiny hops.

rayg1 (584) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Samples at the World Beer Festival in Durham, NC. Nice amber color and one hell of a thick head with great lacing. Big strong floral bite from the hops with awesome bitterness to finish.

freekyp (1673) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2011 Deep amber with a thick white head that near coats the sides of the glass. Strong floral aroma with a blueberry fruitiness zaps the nose at the first whiff. Medium bodied with bitterness rising quickly to a crescendo at the finish, then sticking around for a good long while in the fade. A malt backbone with girth keeps the hops in check while the soft slick palate and active carbonation that scrapes the tongue makes this one a real winner.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2006
My favorite style but this is middling and seem over rated. Nothing stood out, but I enjoyed it. Complared to tope IPAs this is little watery, lacked hops, and bite/character.
