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.)

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2006
Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Medium amber color with offwhite head. Soapy, citrusy, and piney hops in the nose. Well balanced flavors of light-medium malt, pungent citrusy hops, and bitter hops. Slightly bitter/sticky finish. Nothing all that outstanding, but a solid drinkiní IPA. Surprised at the 7%-- itís well-hidden.

Bomber poured a clear copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of pine, earthy hops, and carmel. Palate was medium bodied and dry. Flavors of earthy hops, pine, carmel and a hint of vanilla with a crip, dry, bitter finish.

murrayswine (101) - Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2006
I sell the hell out of this IPA and I figured Iíd give it a whirl. The aroma is nice and sharp with a good amout of hops bite. The pour gives you a good red-amber color with an everpresent lace-like head, The taste is sweeter han I expected with a good hop blend. The hops feel good and dry with a smooth body. Ultimately, This is one of the best IPAís Iíve ever had. Pick it up if you like strong hops.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Bottle from Immy. Pours a nice copper color with foamy off-white head. Good lacing. Nose is grapefruit and some light floral hops. Flavor is an abundance of hops, grassy, floral with a nice crisp, bitter finish. Well balanced throughout, although a little on the thin side. Solid IPA.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Loses most of itís points in mouthfeel. Aroma is great hops, very potent. Pours orange with a huge white frothy head. Flavor is a bit muted, but hoppy, earthy, and a bit of honey.
