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.)

Amber color with lots of lacing. I wasn’t that impressed with this beer. It had a decent taste, but no outstanding flavors or aromas to speak of. Very standard IPA in my opinion. Fruity aroma and flavors that aren’t packing any sort of punch.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Bottle poured a frost-hazed, copper-penny body under a rocky, cream-colored head that lasted down to the bottom of the glass. Smooth hopcit aroma combined with malts to create an appealing "juicy" aroma. A faint medicinal scent underneath. Only moderate bitterness in flavor with a little sourness in an overall weak and watery drink. A touch of metal at the end as well. Mediocre.

Bottle. 12 oz. Dark amber with a medium off-white head that diminished slowly. Good complex aroma of hops and citrus. Medium body. Good flavor with a long bitter finish. Very good IPA.

Tap @Naja’s. Nice amber color. Nice aroma, pine, hops, citrus. Strong hops in the flavor, but well balanced overall. I’m still a beginner as far as IPA’s go, but this was quite good.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Bottle. Pours orange color with frothy white head. Smells like fresh hopps, citrus (oranages) also some grassy outdoors notes. Teeny tiny bubbles flow through. Taste is hoppy and fresh. Light citrus and grass. Light bitterness in the end. NIce palate feel, full and stingy.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Dirty gold body, full creamy off-white head. Nice caramelly citrus aroma, with hints of perfume. Juicy doughy hops with some "juicy fruit" and watermelon hints in there. Pretty good IPA. Enough to make it interesting and flavorful.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Bottle: Orange hued amber, translucent, very large foamy off-white head, sticky lacing, plenty of carbonation.   Hop and citrus nose, grapefruit rind I believe.   Even some tea leaves are present.   Sharp acidic citrus at the start, followed by a hop zing.   They fade fairly quickly, leaving a very, and I mean very, subtle malt backbone.   Big body, quite flavorful, moderate to full mouthfeel.   Biting citrus lingers well after the finish, making it seem a bit rough.   Tea or tobacco leaves come out at the end as well.   Fairly good.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Pours a nice light orange amber with a perfect amount of foamy white head that lasts. Aroma is a very potent floral citrus fruit that really made me look forward to tasting it for myself. Flavor did not dissapoint! Starts with a sweet sugared oranges flavor that then blends into a hoppy bitterness and a dry citrus finish. Overall, I found this to be an excellent example of a great IPA.

Nice IPA from Anderson valley. Appearance is gold, crystal, and is capped off by a medium bodied head. Nice lacing. Nose is of herbal flowers, dark fruits, fairly hoppy, and citrus bitters. The flavor is plums, oranges, grass, herbs, and some spicy bitterness with a medium hop flavor and finish. I enjoyed this beer a lot.
