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.)

Copper color with a huge, creamy, off white head. Hops take over the aroma, and bitterness predominates the flavor profile. A little out of balance to be a top IPA.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2004
A fine hoppy aroma in this pour. Nice white head with decent lacing. Taste was pretty well balanced after expectations of a hop monster. Nice bitter finish with very little alcohol presence.

Bottle Looks yummy, thin head with lace. Big nose of malt & hops. Nice bodied ale. A good citric, piney IPA w/ plenty of malt. I always enjoy this one. Finishes dry and with piney bitterness.

Not bad, but a bit watery compared to your typical IPA. A nice flourish of flowery taste as you drink, pricking your nose and wafting in your mouth. Easily drank as well, moreso than thicker IPAs such as Dogfish’s.

Nice head, hoppy nose. Complex taste; nuts, malt, hops, milk chocolate, and t er stuff. Long hoppy, flowery aftertaste

I am a fan. This is a chewy yet classy IPA, with piney aroma that also comes through in the first taste. I have rarely tasted a beer so aggressively hopped yet with out the steel-toed boot bitterness that normally comes along with it. There is a gentle, porch-swing quality to this beer. I am at a loss for words: confident, subtle, sublimb.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2004 Tap: Got this because it was on special, assuming it wouldn’t be very good. I was quite suprised as it was a pretty well-balanced IPA with a good amount of hops. Aroma is very hoppy, odors of pine and citrus. Flavor hits your mouth with bitter hops, floral, with a balanced strong malt sweetness that make it a very well rounded IPA. Worth trying. Re-rate: Bottle - This beer has an excellent head at first, but quickly diminishes to a small ring around the outside of the glass. Noticed some apple/cherry in the aroma as well as some grapefruit, spicey hops (chili?), and a tiny bit of honey in the taste.

Bottle. Pours a golden copper, with a thin peaked head that cover the glass in lace. Aroma, what an IPA should smell like, pine wood, citrus, slight sweetness, and floral. Flavor starts with sweet malt base, middle is mellow (the eye of the storm), and finish with woody hop bite. Aftertaste was a little metallic. Definitely for hop-heads. The body I thought was a little watery in the finish. Drinkablity medium. Quite good overall.

DYCSoccer17 (3302) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Pine-hoppy aroma. Like I said, lots of pine and woodsiness in the nose. Pours a tranparent copper/orange with an off-white head. Metallic twinge in the start. Finishes very pine-hoppiness. Some malt character in the end. Quite hoppy. Decent body. There is a curious sweetness to this guy that just doesnt jove with me.

A fairly well-balanced IPA with a nice balace of hops and malts. Not overly bitter, yet wonderful hop flavors and aromas
