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.)

10.08.04 12 oz bottle thanks to Springslicker. You know, I’ve passed over this stuf so many times in the local beer store and it took a trade to get me to try it. Maple gold pour under a big, off-white head. Very nicely balanced: aroma right through the finish. Grapefruit pith acidity and bitterness over a superbe malt backbone. Hints of band-aid and gumdrop. Great complexity of banace in an everyday IPA...kudos. Thanks again, Jay.

Gets this hop-head’s vote for a repeat drink. Orange/Copper color with a three-fingered, white head, this had a strong citric aroma with floral undertones. Stronger malt taste than most IPAs, but has that serious bitter flavor that I enjoy. Great bitter finish.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 Canned, from Systembolaget. Somewhat hazy golden beer with a nice offwhite head, leaving nice lacing. Hoppy fruity caramel aroma, citrus, grapes, floral notes, biscuits, some herbal notes. Hoppy grassy flavor, really bitter, caramel, citrus, floral notes. Hoppy citrus finish with grass and metal notes. Old rating from 2004: 3.4. Very clear hop nose. Hops are dominating in the flavor as well. Really bitter, but it also brings grapefruit and bitter almond.

Beautiful copper color, not much head poured gently and with respect. Nice balance between hop bite and malt smoothness for an IPA. Clean palate and aftertaste. Got a kick that sneaks up on one nicely though. I’ll have another soon.

One of my favorites...More malt backbone at the front than many IPAs, but it still has a deliciously crisp finish. Pricier than some, but totally worth it.

A very good IPA. Somewhat reminds me of SNPA only noticably better.It wins out over SNPA in the malt department wich is better balanced.Not as good as the Three floyd’s pale ale,but good nonetheless. It is potent though at 7%abv so be carefull.A true sipping beer.

Pours amber with a white head. Earthy hop aroma. Flavor is earthy as well, with citrus hints. Nothing complex, but a well made IPA.
