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.)

pours a light reddish color with a good off white head that leaves substantial lacing on the glass. Very hoppy, a strong floral aroma and deep body, sweeter body with a crisp bitter finiah, scrumdidily oh!

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Pours orangish/coppery with a big, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, slight fruit, florals, and spice. Tastes hoppy, piney, with some fruit, citrus, and slight dryness at the finish. Nice balance and complexity. This one is great.

aracauna (3052) - Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Clear, light reddish-brown body is topped by a medium, dense, yellowish head that lasts nicely. The aroma is distinctly fresh, leafy hops. There’s a lot of centennial like almost grapefruit. The malt in the flavor is a bit of caramel and really not quite up to the level of the hopping, but this is a well-hopped beer. Lingering bitterness is strong but not overwhelming, harsh or unpleasant.

Dorwart (2370) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Great big frothy, white head. Light carbonation. Big floral hops aroma which starts off stong and biting and ends with a little citrus. Color is a slightly cloudy orange amber. Flavor is very well balanced. Good amount of malts to offset the delicious hops. Bit of grapefruit in there also. Finish is dry and bitter the way a good IPA should be. An excellent IPA that is a very easy drinking and smooth IPA.

CamdenD (1092) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 21, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2004 Great IPA -- nice pour, nice hops, and nice taste. This lacks any hugeness in any direction, but is just a very well balanced IPA but doesn’t lose its balls. Great beer, a bit light, but just fantastic. Highly recommended if you’re too blown away by stone or smuttynose big A.

I picked this one up in bottle on a lark. I was pleasently surprised with this one. Nice pour with a cloudy yellow amber body and an average head. Bonus points for the fruity aroma and hoppy aroma. Taste was egually pleasing with gentle sweetness followed by a generous portion of hops, but not over the top. I’m glad that I have several more to enjoy.

ross (2078) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2004
dark amber color with a tannish colored head. smells very hoppy, floral, and grapefruity. taste is very bitter and rich. has very little carbonation which gives it a little thin mouthfeel, but its still very nice. if we lifted our abv laws, id drink this one alot because we already get like 5 other of these. a pretty good beer, and a decent run of the mill ipa.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Clear amber body under a thin white tightly-bubbled head with a nitrio appearance. Light molasses and grapefruit in the aroma. The flavor starts with a mild sweetness (biscuits?) beign dominated by juicy, slightly sweet dandelion-like hops. There’s also grapefruit flesh in the hops. Finishes with bready watermelon and grapefruit.

Zoob (85) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Pretty great hop aroma. Light mouth feel and nice tawnny orange color. I felt the bitterness was low for an IPA. A pretty good beer with strong nose, bitterness may have been more in the "Pale Ale "range. All said , pleasurable. Cheers

Nice copper color, white head. Up front hop aroma, some underlying sweet malt. Lightly sweet up front, considerable hop bitterness following. Bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty nice, a hop head would be pleased.
