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.)

Huge rocky white head. Big hoppy aroma that almost burns your nose due to the strength. This beer is packed with hops to the end. Great hoppy flavor with a tart sweetness followed by an appropriate bitterness.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2012 Initial Rating Date: 6/20/2004 6:43:56 AM What HUGE Duvel like orange head, stunning. The aroma is very floral and hoppy. Taste is a bit orangey, somewhat fruity with a nice hop-in-your-face in the finish ... overall pretty nice but not something to rave about .. re rate 28-8-2012 Nice solid american IPA, surprisingly fresh considering this has was tapped at least hafl a year ago

Hop-Heads, your dreams are old! Hop Ottin’ is a strange name for a rather unremarkable brew, and surely your dreams will vouch. Hop Ottin’ starts with a locker room aroma, which winds into a yummy yet odd rich and honey bitterness that coats a rather thin center of floral tartness. At length, where’s the width? It has a finish. Hop Ottin’ bites like my roommate’s baby pitbull (Hop Ottin’ bites like a rattlesnake looking.) (duvel tulip glass, and i really did underrate this... it's good, but i don't get why it's so great)

jonwell (104) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - JUN 15, 2004
A decent IPA overall. Pours lightly bronze with a frothy white head. Aroma is piney and citrucy hops, typically west coast. The head tastes strongly metallic at first, but that fades. Improper storage maybe? The flavor is pretty straightforward but tasty- piney, bitter orange, fading to grapefruit with a touch of malts. Body is medium, finish is dry and crisp. A good beer overall!

heemer77 (5138) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 7, 2004
This IPA was given to me with lots of hype. A very good IPA, but I was not blown away. This pours with a medium, slightly yellow head. The body is a dark orange. The aroma is oranges, flowers and a corn field. Yes I am from Iowa. The taste is very strong. Initially, there is the bite of orange peel and pine. Then, this becomes a nice tangerine flavor. There was lots of lacing on the glass. There are not many malt notes to balance the massive hops. This is a very good IPA, but I would like a little less pine and some more malts. Thanks civforprez.

on tap MacGreggers Syracuse, cloudy medium golden color with small fizzy head. Unfortunately it was a little stale. Not full enough body for the style.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Big grapefruity hop aroma, nice balance of caramel malt and fruity esters. Clear orange-amber color, off-white head, good lacing. Big time bitterness in the flavor, piney, citrusy hops, just a hint of malt flavor comes through. Pretty full bodied, lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2004
On tap: at Papago’s Scottsdale, AZ - Color is semi clear, dark goldish bronze color with a thin off-white cap, lacing in thin webby stings. Aroma is quite fruity and floral with hops, mildly so, determined yet subtle with malty fruitiness closing in on some melon and apple. Taste is fruity with apply notions and pear, floral herbs much like a tea are fairly dominant. Bittering is in check by alot due to the overwhelming amount of sweetness that actually isn’t overwhelming. This has a unique balance, but the flavors stay fruity throughout. Feel is a solid medium body, creamy and smooth and lightly crisp with just the right amount of bite. Yummifingly drinkable stuff.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2004
Bottle. A really nice IPA. Heavy lychee, pine and grapefruit. Pretty soft, with a bitter bite at the end. Really well balanced, nice warming shot of alcohol at the end. Great IPA.
