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.)

Herbjones, my sentiments exactly. Not sure why this one is rated so highly. Wasnít bad, but it wasnít all that, either. With eagerness, poured it into my glass and it yeilded a nice clear amber color with a very significant head, that provided outstanding, very persistent lacing. The aroma was nice and grapefruity with some citrus hops detectable. The flavor was where the disappointment started, as this one was of bitter orange rinds, lacking much malt character at all, and full of grapefruits and floral hops. Did they use any malts for this one? Iím assuming the faint hints of caramel were indicative of caramel malts? Mouthfeel was somewhat acidic and medium-bodied.

12oz bottle, no date. Pours a clear orange copper with a one finger thick off-white creamy head. Lots of pine resin, grapefruit, and caramel malts present. Taste is the same, with a little less resin and big bitterness thoughout, until just before the end when thereís a caramelly sweetness, and mellows the bitterness out into almost no bitterness at all. Very nicely done.

One of the few good IPAís we can get in Utah. This borders on being a double IPA. Very strong hop aroma and flavor. Piney, with maybe a bit of pineapple and grapefruit, but not too citrusy Nice white head with good lacing

Nicely done IPA by Anderson Valley. Aroma is a nice blend of hops, pine, and citrus. Flavor is a strong hop kick with citrus (grapefruit) tones, pine, floral hops, and some caramel notes. Balanced flavor and a nice crisp finish.

Poured a dark orange with an off white head. Huge floral and orange hop aroma. Flavor was sweet BIG hops. The floral notes and orange were both very good and noticable in the flavor. Had a carmel malt finish. Reminded me of the Big Hoppy Monster.

Bottle. Pours light copper color, thin white head. Good hop aroma, flowery and piney. Decent malt backbone in the aroma, I get some caramel coming thru. This is very balanced to me, lots of malt, good hop bitterness and some tea and honey. Medium body, finish is slightly bitter and some honey. Decent IPA.

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 ?
