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.)

No directions needed to figure out where this IPA was brewed. With a citrus floral aroma, medium body, not over the top bitterness the breweryís location can only be in Northern California. Itís a vibrant IPA with seven percent alcohol content. "Proteja el ambiente no la tire" - yes, I recycled the bottle.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2005
Golden copper color with a thick white head. Nice malt nose but not any discernable floral or citrus notes which is weird for an IPA. Bitter throughout. Very tasty but if your going to go ahead and make a beer this bitter you might as well add the extra malt backbone and hops to give it a more aggresive personality.

Darkover (1524) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2005
Light amber color with a beige head, has some pretty heavy lacing. Citrus and piney hop aroma. Flavor of citrus hops and some malt. Bitter finish.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - APR 4, 2005
On Tap. Pours a dark amber color, thick, frothy white head. Aroma of pine sol, flowers and lemon. Flavor is more hops with a sweetness to it. Malt does balance out the hops to this. Not Bad.

radiomgb (2450) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2005
Bottle. Copper/amber in colour with a thin white head and left some very nice lace. Aroma was of floral hops, some citrus and light caramel malt. The flavour starts off more floral and end with the citrus kick. Sugary sweet medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a lingering bitterness. Nice stuff, 7% - unbelievable. Thanks for the beer Crosling.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2005
Rich copper colour beckons you so very invitingly. Nice malty balance to the floral and citrus hop aromas. Same again through the flavours - a touch maltier than you might expect but it works nicely with the floral hops. Finishes beautifully with a lingering bitterness. Iíd like some more please.

tomhenderson (166) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Very good IPA, although less hoppy (aroma and flavor) and more malty than I expected. Beautiful lacing on glass. Moderately more bitter than most IPAs Iíve had. Lingering bitterness. At 7% ABV, itís not available in NC until we "pop the cap." Thatís unfortunate since Iíd enjoy consuming some.

sfontain (830) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Great looking brew: Deep orange with a monstrous, white, bubbly head with tons of lacing all the way down. Nice aroma, too, of citrus, caramel, and hops. Flavor is predominantly hoppy with not much else. Medium body. Pretty beer, but thatís about it.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Very soft indistinct malt with big hop bitterness and some floral resinous notes. Oily and dry mouthfeel. Some grassy and hay on the palate with hop pellet flavors.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Appearance: Head looks like cream of wheat. Nice lacing. Dark amber color. Aroma: Caramel malt, hop. Weak. Caused by bar? Palate: Medium mouthfeel. Sweet-dry. Flavor: grassy hop, bitter, grapefruit.
