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.)

Had on tap at Brouwers. Very solid IPA. Great aroma with a nice sharp hop taste. Very balanced.

This ale cured my hop withdrawal symptoms in Hong Kong (East End Brewery, 2 island locations). Bottle pours a dark gold, rich hops charging through the aroma and flavor. Now if I could get this in Massachusetts ?

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2006
1 pint draught, d.b.a. Sweet malt aroma. Amber and clear with a small white head. A little hop aroma. Delicious malty flavour with a strong hoppy background. Crisp and medium-bodied.

jrob21 (3403) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2006
I like hops but not ones that finish in a bitter, biting sort of way. The most entertaining thing about this beer is the label. Bear + deer antlers = beer. Get it?!@ Not very well balanced. This is to IPAs what Heineken is to Pilsners. A bitter hell.

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.

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 (3215) - 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!
