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.)

palliko (12) - Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2003
A lovely looking beer: deep amber color and a large creamy head. The aroma is powerful: take your pick - spicy or floral or grapefruit. Hops galore!! Some malty undertones. There is an initial sweetness, then - LOOK OUT BELOW! More hops than any beer I have ever tasted followed by a bitter finish fit to raise the dead. But don't be frightened: the palate is excellent, the body medium, just the right amount of carbonation. Hop lovers will be in hop heaven!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2003
(sampled draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, Sweden) Copper colored with a thick big white head. Very hoppy and flowery aroma with hints of strong tea and nuts. Very bitter and oily flavour. Flowers, citrus and tea with a bitter nutty aftetaste with hints of grape. Very good.

Kinz (3258) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Orangey, so-so head. Smelled like green hops, that one particular IPA hop profile that some brewers go for that I don't care for. Taste confirmed it. Not bad, had just enough bitterness to offset the green veggie flavor, but not quite enough.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2003
Has a wonderful hop aroma, a floral - grassy - resinous character to it. A nice amber color with a slight chill haze. Medium body with a hoppiness up front, followed by a malty sweetness. A resinous quality to the hop flavors as well as other notes of grapefruit peel. This beer finishes quite bitter. There is lots of flavor in this beer.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - AUG 20, 2003
Orange color, standard California IPA aroma and flavor. A good example of the style, but if you don't like hops, look elsewhere.

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - AUG 20, 2003
deep amber color. very bitter hops which seem to be less balanced than some other IPA's or maybe they want it that way. Good to the last drop though.

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 19, 2003
Nice color, a little cloudy too...Definately decent in the hop area, fairly strong aroma of hops followed by a nice taste of hops finished off with a crisp hop bitterness...I will drink this again!

drinkbeer (281) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - AUG 14, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2003 Smells like weed. Tastes like weed. I love this beer because it reminds me of weed. Re-rate 10/1/03: Awesome IPA with some pretty bracing hops. Reminds me a bit of SNPA but more hops. I love my hops, damnit! Head was offwhite and unevenly fluffy like suds. Left pretty lacing. I didn't really get the weed vibe this time around. Hmm, I guess I had something else on my mind the first time a rated this. There were some nice floral hops in my nose, however. Have a hoppy day.

Bottled. Very good left coast IPA. Nice and hoppy with a slight bitter finish. My mouth ran dry after drinking 4 of these in on setting.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 25, 2003
Tap. Amber with an average head. Hoppy smell but without so much pine-and-grass clippings as other west coast IPAs. This would be a good gateway beer for aspiring hopheads who can't handle Ruination yet.
