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.)

henrikb (1261) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2006
Dark golden with fast disappearing white head; interesting nose of caramel (and loads of it), bitter coffee, but also fresh apricot, it has depth but the alcohol is quite apparent; super full carbonation in a very bitter body with complexity, character and lot of fill to it; into a very bitter finish, very apparent, doesn’t fade: fresh brown sugar, caramel, later very hoppy dry pine.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2006
[bottle @ Bukowski’s] Looks great- aroma is certainly floral hops. Flavors are well balanced- a bit on the woody, malt side of things. Finishes strong and bitter. A solid, well made IPA.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - MAY 3, 2006
Pleasent floral and hoppish aromas greet the nose. The pour is amber, some cloudiness, and a nice tan head of full duration and excellent lacing. The taste starts with a slight maltiness that quickly becomes bitter with a grapefruitiness. The finish on the palate lingers with the bitterness of the hops.

Beerdedone (3156) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Had this on tap at Issac newtons with Stegosaurus. Pours a copper/amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, and hops. Flavor was bitter, sweet, citrus. Too bitter for me.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2006
Clear copper color with a nice head. Big hop aroma. Malt flavor comes through at first then gives in to the hops. Medium body. Decent beer.

Folkstar (6) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - APR 21, 2006 does not count
As far as taste goes it reminds me of a decent Barley Wine. Aftertaste is nice and bitter and the ingredients don’t make a subtle presence. Definitely brings Anderson Valley to a new level!

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2006
Golden color. Nice head. Smell of flowers, citrus and hops. First sip was very bitter, nice hops with a rusty after taste. Ok for a IPA.

Pours a nice copper color, nice frothy off white head. Aroma of citrus and hopps are abundant. A great IPA

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2006
Thanks to another great guy on this site: Odeed aka Jacob.Pours a copper color with a thin line of foam around the rim. Nose is way more hoppy than you might expect from a IPA, more like an IIPA. Bitter on the tongue right away... no mistaking this for anything else but an IPA. Very refreshing. Thanks Odeed.

ElGaucho (2371) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2006
Hoppy, but sweet aroma; great balance. Very nice dark amber with sllight haze. Steady, pervasive carbonation. Off white/yellowish head. Great body color. Rich hop flavor; piney. Very well balanced. Excellent. I might confuse this with the big boy IPAs if tasting it blind.
