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.)

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.

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.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2003 Sweet pine, yes, but also other spiciness in the flavor. Rough edged bitterness on the way down and long into the finish. Huge head. Intitial huge maltiness. Good.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2004 Clear, bright copper body with moderate carbonation and a tight sudsy buff-colored head with thick lacing. No visible particulates. Piney, cheesy hop nose and a subtle buttery malt base. Light cherry, stone fruit, and toffee notes also in the aroma. Very piney, hoppy flavor. Hops do indeed prevail, to a fault. Mouthfeel is dominated by hop resin. Good, but not particularly exciting.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Clear sparkling amber with a creamy substantial off-white head. A welcome aroma of citrus and pine. Very much a pine taste and finish. A quality beer.

sloth (2452) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2003
Big beige head. Clear copper color. Lotsa sticky lacing.Piney, citrusy nose with a slight metallic note to it. Med/full body. Nice, big piney, resiny hop flavors. Good fruitiness and malt that helps balance out the big hoppiness in this brew. Finish is dry, nice lingering hoppy oil slick.7.5%alc is well masked. Good brew!

3fourths (7874) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Big sweet citrus hop presence. Night crisp initial feel on the tongue, with flavors of mixed citrus and wood. Seems to be on the more earthy and robust side of IPAs, instead of being completely hopped sweet.
