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.)

Ahhh yes. This is one of my IPA faves, ranking with Alpha King, Two Hearted, and Mad Hatter. Love this stuff.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2007 Great floral and citrus aroma, with evenly clouded golden appearance. Strong taste of overbrewed tea, with highly floral taste. The hops bitterly assault the senses, while it is simultaneously watery. Horrid. EDIT: this product is far better on draft, but does not have the aroma of the bottled sample I tried. It was also very biscuity, but not horrid in any way. score adjusted.

Iíve probably adjusted my entering of ratings to make this my 500th. I had no choice, it was part of international night of swill, I wasnít going to bring in 500 with a Carib or Club Colombia. Anyway, thanks to Blankboy for this one. Very strong citrus aroma. Orange pour, creamy white head. Very strong hop taste, creamy mouthfeel (yet slightly lacking in a decent base to the whole thing. 7%? Really? Very good, and Iím sure seemed that much better compared to what we were trying that night. A pleasure to share my 500th with jerc, greg, and blankboy.

Amber body with your basic IPA head. Hop aroma with a sweet malt mixed in. Very hoppy taste that lingers with you for a while. Has almost a creamy texture...but with bite. Very nice IPA.

Slight floral initial taste leads into a bad (is there a good?) metallic taste. They use hard water but this was above that as a reason. Bad batch? I canít imagine all these good reviews if it always tastes this bad. IPA is my preferred style so its not me.

A surprisingly good find. Nothing out the ordinary, just a very good IPA. 7% abv is nice too. Assertive hops but not too overwhelming. Pretty full body.

jercraigs (8670) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2005
Bottle. Amber body, good size white head. Big massive hoppy aroma, piney resin. Intense hoppy flavour at first, bitter and resiny. Mellows as the glass goes on. Lacks the malt to be truly balanced but that is probably not the point. Very nice beer. Medium smooth body. Thanks Blankboy.

Beer #8 in the line-up at The International Night Of Swill. One of the good beers that we used to break up the stream of fizzy yellow blandness. Dark amber colour with an off-white head. Resiny hop aroma with sweet malt and honey notes. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy, mmmmmm! Flavour is abundantly hopped, but itís well balanced by the roasty malt. Very good stuff.

Amber pour with a creamy off white head. Dense citrusy aroma with a little bit of toasted malt. Oily mouthfeel to start, giving you a bit of toasty malt flavor before drying out. Big íní rich IPA.

Not much head out of the bottle but this is very good. Good amount of Grapefruit to wake you up and nice blend of hops and malts. Nice citrusy bite included. Havenít had a good IPA in a while, I was overdue.
