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.)

Very hoppy and very good. There is some bitterness to it, but nothing to keep you from coming back for more.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2005 Orange-amber with a high white head. Citric, herbal hop aromas with more than enough candyish caramel maltiness. Full bodied and very bitter. Satisfying.

The aroma of this IPA - floral and sweet malts with just the subtlest hint of citrus and pine - provides no clue to the hoppy bitterness to follow at first taste. The beer poured dark copper, not quite opaque. Short off-white head. Its flavor leans toward the sweet malts - honey and caramel. But there is a nice coating of raspy hops during and after taking a sip, one that intensified as the beer warmed. Medium to thick body. If grapefruit and pine are your idea of an ideal IPA, this ainít it. But I thought the balance between sweet and bitter made this a refreshing beer.

12 oz bottle pours copper with a nice full offwhite rocky head that lingers and laces quite well. Aroma is grapefruit, pine and caramel. Flavor teases you first with some sweet caramel malts then finishes with a nice smack of citrus grapefruit hops. On the palate this is quite balanced and smooth. Very drinkable. A fine example of a nice IPA.

Bottled. Clear copper color with an Ivory head. Piney nose. Big hop bitterness with a ton of malt. Kind of sweet but very well done.

fordest (2386) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - AUG 9, 2005
12 oz bottle. Deep amber color with a head that dissapated quickly, but left nice lacing. Fresh floral and grassy aromas, but the flavor fell off a bit with not much more than the standard hoppy citrusness and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Still pretty decent.

Amber color with lots of lacing. I wasnít that impressed with this beer. It had a decent taste, but no outstanding flavors or aromas to speak of. Very standard IPA in my opinion. Fruity aroma and flavors that arenít packing any sort of punch.

frankenkitty (2006) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Bottle poured a frost-hazed, copper-penny body under a rocky, cream-colored head that lasted down to the bottom of the glass. Smooth hopcit aroma combined with malts to create an appealing "juicy" aroma. A faint medicinal scent underneath. Only moderate bitterness in flavor with a little sourness in an overall weak and watery drink. A touch of metal at the end as well. Mediocre.

Bottle. 12 oz. Dark amber with a medium off-white head that diminished slowly. Good complex aroma of hops and citrus. Medium body. Good flavor with a long bitter finish. Very good IPA.
